Freedom of the DJ | ep. 2: Liverpool’s House
A month ago we told you about the new webseries called ‘Freedom of the DJ’, produced by electronic cigarette brand blu eCigs.
While episode 1 served as an introduction to the several topics that will be discussed throughout the series, episode two puts a start to the topics with ‘Liverpool’s House’.
We commence the trip down memory lane with pioneering clubs The State and Underground and pioneering DJs Andy Carroll and Mike Knowler, who brought New York and Chicago to a northwestern city plagued with problems at the time.
Having said that, the truly fascinating effect of dance music and what subsequently became one of the most famous superclubs in the world – Cream – to the city of Liverpool, its economy and people have been analyzed more in-depth by Dom Phillips in his ‘Superstar DJs Here We Go!’ book which we’ve already reviewed and recommended to you.
We do meet Cream‘s co-founder James Barton in the 11-minute episode, alongside some of the key DJ figures of the time and place. There’s the aforementioned Andy Carroll and his 051 club – Liverpool’s answer to Manchester’s Haçienda. Knowler and John Kelly are there, as well as Seb Fontaine and we get to see some fun archive footage from crazy-looking parties.
Watch the whole episode of Freedom of the DJ ‘Liverpool’s House’ below for yourself.
