We return to the Horse & Groom on Friday 13 July with one of our most exciting special guests yet, a DJ and producer responsible for some of our favourite records of the last few years on some of our favourite labels.

London-based German Juergen Junker will be playing an extended three hour set for us, and having played dates in the last year at the likes of Panorama Bar, Cookies, fabric and Plastic People, we feel very privileged to have him down to play at our intimate little disco.

Although he has been pushing his sound since the early ‘90s, you are probably most likely to know Juergen for his outstanding split EP with Lowtec on Laid last year which showcased his unique take on deep house, mixing together layered percussion, warm textures and hypnotic chord flourishes to mindblowing effect.

So the story goes, Juergen was signed up for this release after impressing Dial head honchos Lawrence, Efdemin and Carsten Jost at a Sud Electronic party a couple of years back, and given that his sets seamlessly fuse together disco, house, his own edits and a healthy dose of Chicago’s jack, we can’t say we’re surprised. Efdemin even went on to sign him for another stunning release on his naïf imprint later in the year.

Juergen has also made a name for himself via the heavily percussive Detroit-leaning material released on his own Neurhythmics imprint, which he launched in 2001. He continues to use this as an outlet for his own material and that of other forward-thinking producers – be sure to check the label’s latest release from Roger 23 for a taster of what to expect.
