Friday night sees FRACTAL play bisector to the legendary sounds of the USA’s East Coast and Motor City. Representing New Jersey and dancers the world over is DJ QU. As head of Strength Music Recordings and an integral part of NYC’s house renaissance, DJ QU has devoted his career to depth and groove.
His early years were spent touring the world as a dancer, workshopping house moves with his mentor Brian ‘Footwork’ Green and DJ and producer Joey Anderson. His learning in dance and movement now feeds directly into his production work and DJ sets – always favouring the dancer and mobility.
Ahead of Friday’s throw down, DJ QU has compiled a playlist of club heaters and heady atmospherics tailor made for the floor.
Make sure to catch DJ QU, alongside FIT Siegel and a host of UK talent at FRACTAL with FIT Siegel & DJ QU.
