It's now under three weeks away until we host the legendary Maurice Fulton so we thought we should shed light to the uninformed on the eccentric genius. Maurice is one of house music's true innovative originals, a renegade who never fails to surprise and delight his listeners. The Baltimore expat has lived around the world including a stint in Melbourne, where his regular nights at Honkytonks were something of legend, often overshadowing the international guest. Many heads will tell you that a party with Maurice Fulton at the helm was one of the most memorable, inspiring and mind-bending nights of their lives.
Maurice has a deep catalog of production under his belt that spreads in so many different directions and under various guises. From the twisted Nu-Jazz jams of Syclops on DFA to the dusty weirdness of his Stress 12"s on Transfusion to the all-encompassing eclectic brilliance of BOOF, his varied productions are all distinctly that of his own and equally infectious. Rooted in House, Maurice developed his skills in production as part of The Basement Boys throughout the 90s. The signature skippy, propulsive US garage rhythms heavily informed his own early 12" cuts. Check Orphies Love The Flute or Melonsniffers "This Is What You Want" as examples of his brilliance and a unique style that he continues to take with him no matter how different the genre may be. Perhaps some of his greatest work is when paired with a vocalist. Take his production work for electro-punk-pop musician and former girlfriend MU or East African vocalist Mim Suleiman. Then there's the countless remixes for everyone from Rhye to Crazy P and of course the monsterous Disco anthem Love Endeavour for Alice Smith. Fulton's understanding of Disco stems back to his influence from Tony Humphries' Zanzibar and Larry Levan's Paradise Garage. There's also his material as Ladyvipb, Eddie & The Eggs, Javen Souls, his collaborations with Finland's Jimi Tenor & Nicole Willis - we could go on and on.
Maurice Fulton will take you everywhere from Boogie Steppers to entrancing Deep Techno. A true genius, the man is softly spoken. He rarely does interviews or self promo but rather lets his music do all the talking. He is undoubtedly an icon, held in high esteem by club goers and some of the world's most respected DJs alike.
In collaboration with Wildlife Recordings, we proudly present the incomparable Maurice Fulton, Sunday 4th October! Back in the intimate open-air setting of Winn Lane we think this one will be SUPER DOOPER special. Make sure you get your ticket and ensure your spot on the dance floor here! Monday is a public holiday so you don't have to worry about hang over management.
