Vince Watson has been breaking down the barriers between house and techno since the 90’s, filling his productions with boundless, emotional melodies and rich textures like few others. He’s had releases on the legendary labels like NY’s Ibadan imprint, and tracks like the classic “Mystical Rhythm” still hold sway over dance floors today. He joins us in the main room for his D.C. debut Saturday, October 7th.

DJ-ing began for Vince Watson at his school’s weekend discos with a selection of hip-hop and early house records filling his box. He worked up a collection unlike any other young DJ, in between visits to the Royal Academy for Art, Music and Drama in Glasgow for piano lessons, before electronic and ambient music grabbed his attention. These influences are all clear in his productions which are elegant and seductive with emotional ambiences generated by his skills of manipulating a keyboard, to bring complex multi layered chords and dense yet fully melodic patches to contemporary dance music.
