Event description

Description

DJ/ Radio host/ Comedian/ Podcaster.
30 years of DJing on and off-air. Have been known to kick trance on a Thai beach to a thousand people. More often playing Michael Bublé at a wedding in Worthing.

One DJ. One Mic. One sampler (with lots of buttons to fire audio-nostalgia). One set of turntables. Lots to say.


I'm Vinney. I’ve been obsessed with electronic music since I was given a rave-tape in 1991 that featured, amongst other things, The Prodigy's debut single; Charly.


The talk/performance is about how we got to that kicking mixtape, and how the tracks were made. You will discover: which Canadian invented the organ? Which French guy started sampling in the 1940’s? Which Japanese dude invented devices that accidentally changed the face of music when they were found in a Chicago pawn shop? What's the most sampled and abused drum-loop ever - and why did the drummer die penniless?

"With a background in both music-radio and talk-radio, Vinney takes the too-cool-for-school out of electronic music, because he's not that cool. Fascinating meets funny."




Important note on the Durham Arms: CASH ONLY. Cheap drinks. Bar open afterwards until 12 so feel free to stay.
Yes, this pub is in a weird place but really easy to get to from CANNING TOWN DLR (5min walk).
