Huxley Plays the Mercat
Author of seminal pieces of literature including Brave New World and Doors of Perception, Aldous Huxley is widely regarded as a visionary and preeminent intellectual - far ahead of his time.
An advocate for the use of psychedelics as well as a keen humanist with an interest in spiritual subjects including parapsychology and philosophical mysticism, academics to this day are still fascinated with the singularly original body of work Huxley left behind. It's interesting, then, that UK-based producer Huxley shares a name with him - with a similarly spectacular body of work to his name that runs back to his late teenage years, he's been earning respect from his peers since a young age. First finding success in the underground as a brave and singular purveyor of garage-tinged jams, his sound has morphed into something deeper and more house-influenced since - releases spanning Tsuba, Morris Audio, Fear of Flying, Hypercolour and 20:20 Vision, and always remaining true to his robust, bass-led strain of house music that reflects his formative interests in UK and US Garage, with critics, punters and peers frothing over each and every release and remix that he puts out.
It’s a brave new world out there on the dancefloor – Huxley takes it over at the Mercat on Friday June 29.
