This weekend’s XXL Bear Pride comes to a thrilling climax on Sunday (27 May) with Fusion at Pulse. This exciting club event sees Pagano play a nine-hour main room set and the boys from Beefmince take over the second room. We asked them both to describe what’s going to happen on Sunday and to pick the five songs they are most looking forward to playing.
“I can’t wait to bring my nine-hour journey to the London crowd on Sunday. I have been playing these marathon DJ sets in Amsterdam for more than 10 years. As a former resident DJ for the iconic Trade afterhours, famous for its music progression, I have learnt to craft a smooth and uplifting journey from deeper house and tech house to techno and progressive with the right amount of classics and remixes thrown in. This means you will hear different styles of music throughout the night and you will not hear the same track twice.”
1. Pagano & Reza & Sweet Female Attitude – Give It To Me (Pagano Vocal Mix)
Already supported on KISS FM, this is my anthem for summer 2018, out everywhere beginning of June.
2. John Grant – Pale Green Ghosts (Pagano Remix)
My tribute reconstruction remix of this beautiful gem by the immensely talented John Grant, one of my favourite artists of the last decade.
3. Skober – Paranoid (Original Mix)
Modern techno tune borrowing elements from hard house and from the sound of Berlin’s club Berghain.
4. Tony Bruno – Come On (Original Mix)
Tony has been a legendary figure in the Italian nightlife since the 90s. His tune Exogroove a 90s classic. Now he’s back with a vengeance and a great new single.
5. London Grammar – Strong (Pagano remix)
Another one of my exclusive and signature tunes. The ethereal vocals from this talented band works a treat over my pumping groove.
“Beefmince will be taking over Room Two, bringing you both the hottest underground music productions as well as the classics. This mixture of nu disco, indie dance, and deep and tech house will keep you mincing into the night!”
1. Tracey Thorn – Dancefloor (Pearson and Lindblad Italo Remix)
2. Fischerspooner – Top Brazil (Benny Benassi VS Constantin & Mazz Extended Mix)
3. Tove Lo – Disco Tits (Oliver Remix)
4. Cher – All Or Nothing – (Thee Werq’n B!tches Club Mix)
5. Camelphat & Elderbrook – Cola (Robin Schultz Extended Mix)
