The Hacienda is now acknowledged as a high point in worldwide dance music, a venue that bought together Chicago house, Detroit techno and Mancunian soul, and in doing so changed the direction of UK club culture forever. Tonight’s line up is headlined by a trio of American legends, topped by New York’s inimitable Danny Tenaglia. A DJ’s DJ, Tenaglia is feted for his pioneering, evolving sets, where tunes are worked up from the deepest stripped back dubs to the wildest vocal screamers. He i joined by fellow New Yorker Todd Terry, who’s choppy, hip hop and disco inspired house jams have long held a special place in the hearts of UK dance fans, and Detroit innovator Kevin Saunderson, mastermind behind both the vocal heavy techno-soul of Inner City, and the tear our rave assault of KMS records. Representing the UK we have Hacienda favourite Graeme Park on hand to cut together classic and upfront house, master of the re-edit Greg Wilson with his collection of exclusive disco magic, and the ever innovative A Guy Called Gerald – quite possibly Britain’s first and greatest techno producer. They’re joined by the South’s finest; Danny Rampling, who was starting his own revolution with Shoom during the Hacienda’s golden age, along with the versatile Justin Robertson, who fuses tight acid bass lines with an acute sense of melody and drama. With more names to be announced, FAC51 Hacienda takes that trailblazing spirit first born in the 80s and applies it to the here and now – expect a night looking as much to dance music’s bright future as it does to its gilded past.
