18 and over
Come to celebrate French Touch, a style of music that has been pivotal in the recognition of electro music around the world.
The evening will start with the screening of the 65’ documentary French Waves, by French filmmaker Julian Starke. Based around a series of interviews with iconic artists from the origins and the present of French Touch, French Waves tracks the American roots of techno and house music, the era of illegal raves and showcases the newest generation of French electro artists.
The screening will be followed by a presentation on the origins of French electronic music and an all-French Touch DJ set by DJ Maxime. Strongly influenced by soul music, funk, disco, jazz and classical music, French-born DJ Maxime has a passion for house and techno music. He started the blog All In Electro, which received two Golden Blog Awards in 2013.
