Joining Lenny! our old friend ‘TERRY FARLEY’
Terry Farley is a bona fide UK house legend. Having been on the dancefloor since day dot, he has produced some of house music’s most enduring cuts under various guises, including Roach Motel and Bocca Juniors, as well as with Pete Heller as Heller and Farley. A bastion of knowledge when it comes to acid and deep house, as well as dance culture, soul boy trends, and more besides, Terry is also much lauded for having launched house music fanzine (and label and party series) Boys Own with Andrew Weatherall, Cymon Eckel and Steve Mayes back in the day: it was something that very much went on to document and dictate the trends of the time. A fascinating character with a real passion for dance music and its cultural roots, Terry is a learned selector with old school values who can really make dancefloors move with a whole range of sounds. He does so everywhere from fabric and Ministry of Sound in London to festivals around the world on a regular basis and always educates as much as he entertains. Now very much a scene curator and archivist as much as an enduring DJ talent, when Terry Farley’s in the house, everybody listens, as his essential recent compilations, Acid Rain and Acid Thunder, have proven in spades.
And making his Debut at FITS 2020 ‘ANDY CARROLL’.
Andy Carroll first started DJing in and around Liverpool in the early eighties, his passion for music and appetite for several genres, not to mention an ability behind the hallowed turntables is the reason he is as popular and relevant today.
In his early days Andy played alongside numerous up and coming bands, including PigBag, The Icicle Works and Teardrop Explodes, delivering an eclectic mix of Roxy Music/ Bowie/ T-Rex combined with punk/ new wave/ new romantic and goth. His unique understanding of music, no matter where it rots were, made him one of the UK’s most popular DJs. His ability to effortlessly mix genres is something that still sets him apart from many of his peers today. Whilst ‘Balearic’ was sweeping the trendier clubs in the south, Andy’s philosophy of playing “good” music was making quite a name for himself in the north; along with DJ partner at the time Mike Knowler he would integrate popular city anthems of the time with Francoise K remixes of The Smiths and obscure dubs of New Order.
Andy would meet and befriend James Barton and Darren Hughes on his travels and between them they would prove instrumental in the evolution of clubbing in the city of Liverpool as well as being responsible for the birth of one of the world’s biggest clubbing brands, Cream. Andy was resident at the super-club but left before it grew into two rooms before going on to become one of the world’s most recognisable clubbing brands.
Andy Carroll has played on some of the world’s biggest clubs, travelled extensively with his music under his arm and remains an integral part of the global scene, almost three decades on. He is no stranger to Ibiza and has played at many of the seminal nights throughout its short clubbing history. More recently residencies at ‘We Love’ in Space and for Ibiza Rocks see him delivering genre-crossing sets to a whole new legion of fans.
