Mike Pickering will be DJing at The Warehouse, Leeds, on Friday 18th December 2015.
Shine press release:
Shine are pleased to announce more house music all night long, featuring the world class superclub giant Mr David Morales for Shine's 2015 presentation of FAC51 The Hacienda in Leeds at The Warehouse. The superb Dynasty of Two duo, Mike Pickering with Graeme Park aka 'Park & Pickering' join proceedings scheduled 18th December for a Mad Friday Christmas Special.
New York's DJ producer, remixer David Morales from Def Mix Records is in collaboration as the Def Mix Collective which featured Dave's beloved friend the late God Father of House Frankie Knuckles. He's won an house DJ Grammy award, is renowned for strong activity within the radio show's community throughout the States and has turned his hand to many remixes from the early nineties, with his magic added to the Ce Ce Peniston track, Finally but his stardom career more or less kickstarted with the debut album The Program released by Phonogram Records with the Gimme Luv (Eenie Meenie Miny Mo) single from it which topped Billboard's dance chart as a major hit. Under the pseudonym 'David Morales presents The Face' he released his biggest hit to date 'Needin U' followed up by Ministry Of Sound releasing Dave's second album '2 Worlds Collide'.
FAC51 last year invited him to play in the UK at sell out shows on phenomenal line ups alongside UK DJ legends & early mid eighties Hacienda super talents the one and only Mike Pickering & Graeme Park outfit. Their team work throughout the past 30 years has become somewhat special across the globe and brings huge pleasure to Leeds brand Shine having them come once again to The Warehouse as a duo, something they last ventured together, way back in 1988.
Adding to the outstanding bill Shine have put together comes Dave Haslam, who during the early mid eighties played with M People's Mike Pickering back to back on Hacienda's journey of turntable experiments while introducing the North's new wave construction of house music. Alongside Haslam is past FAC51 resident Leeds lad himself, DJ Marshall, who was once billed on Hacienda's 11th Birthday with US house heavyweights, which incidentally featured Dave Morales plus UK's proud Park & Pickering outfit with many more, all together creating another page in the Hacienda's history books.
Upstairs in The Loft and Kaos originals are the Shine residents Mark Alexander & Graham Dixon who of course will be joined by Shine's long standing DJ's Mark Holliday & Garry Dabill. Shine in Leeds & the FAC51 team based in Manchester highly recommend you jump on Tickets sharpish because they are already selling at a record rate for Shine.
