Every year at Glastonbury, once night falls most of the festival’s contingent of house and techno fans flock to a discrete corner of the site known as Block9. Founded by Gideon Berger and Stephen Gallagher, this radical after-hours area occupies only a small part of the festival, but is home to many venues and installations that have become some of the site’s most beloved.
Having had an early passion for the UK’s free party scene, Berger is the musical mind of the duo. He’s best known as the resident DJ and curator of The NYC Downlow, Block9’s 70s-inspired queer club, but his experience in club culture dates back to before Block9’s beginnings. He’s been playing and collecting a mix of deep house, acid, soul and disco for over two decades – the same sound you’ll hear on his weekly Soho Radio show. He goes similarly deep in our latest promo mix, recorded in time for his appearance in Room One next weekend.
