Neck of the Woods | North Shore, AU

So where do we start?! Gene Farris lives and breathes house music. A bonafide Chicago legend, he’s been pushing musical boundaries for close to three decades, from spinning at underground warehouse parties in the early 90s to working with the current crop of world-leading labels and artists.
Thanks to the last three years of COVID pandemic upheaval, it has been a looooooooooong time between drinks for us all here in Aotearoa with Gene’s last visit to New Zealand way back in August 2019.
But he’s back... and house heads, we are in for a master class from the one of the greats.
Toolroom, Relief, Dirtybird, Spinnin Deep, ViVa Music, Defected: all have released and championed Gene Farris records over the past few years, alongside his own Farris Wheel imprint: a fitting testament to the quality and relevance of the music he creates. As a self-taught engineer and producer, his work with Cajual, Relief Records, Defected Records, Soma Recordings and his own breakout label Farris Wheel Recordings, propelled his influence into ever expanding realms.
His catalogue is vast, varied and consistently inspired, with notable releases including We Work It on Farris Wheel, Nursery on Toolroom, Space Girl on Dirtybird, ‘Play’ on Snatch!, ‘LOL’ on Relief and 2015’s ‘Move Your Body’, which was one of the biggest club records of the year. Similarly impressive was Gene’s ‘Welcome To Chicago EP’, which after its release on Defected Records back in 2003, quickly became a cult classic.
Joining Gene Farris, we have our local DJs known for their infectious beats and electrifying energy Dick Johnson, Scarlett and Courtnee Leigh!
The Ghost soundsystem has been tuned to perfection, and we are ready.
Let’s go.
