Event description

Description

After a grand entry to the Sydney party scene Follow Me is back! Going one up on the Brandon Block party was always going to a big ask as Follow Me set the bar ridiculously high putting on one of the best events Sydney saw last Summer, however we think we are about to do just that!

On September the 22nd we return at a venue overlooking Darling Harbour where Ibiza meets Sydney, the Cafe del Mar.

Music will be supplied by two Dj's who the description House Music legends was made for, Farley Jackmaster Funk and Seb Fontaine.

Our Last event in March was sold out prior to setting sail (even after we changed venues to accomodate more partygoers) and we anticipate this event will follow suit with huge interest prior to tickets even being released.

Farley Jack Master Funk

When a new style of music first cracks the pop charts, the hit is usually a deliberate crossover by an artist having little to do with the music's original pioneers. The first house single to reach the charts, however, was recorded by seminal Chicago DJ and producer, Farley Jackmaster Funk. His cover of Isaac Hayes' "Love Can't Turn Around" made the Top Ten in mid-1986 - ironically, not in his home country but in the U.K. - at the same time that he was one of the biggest names in Chicago house.

He first made his name in 1981, broadcasting on Chicago's WBMX-FM with Ralphi "The Razz" Rosario, Kenny "Jammin" Jason, Mickey "Mixin" Oliver and Scott "Smokin" Sils as the Hot Mix 5 - the legendary DJ team which broke house music for a wider Chicago audience. Farley also appeared at the legendary Warehouse club mixing alongside Frankie Knuckles.

Known as Farley Keith or Farley Funkin' Keith up to that point, he began recording in 1984 with the single "Jack the Bass," which inaugurated the highly popular jacking craze in Chicago house. After two more singles ("Funkin' with Drums Again," "Give Yourself to Me") for Trax Records, he re-christened himself Farley Jackmaster Funk and released "Love Can't Turn Around,"

Farley made a smooth transition to an even more lucrative sport - the global DJ circuit, where the prospect of hearing an American original brought thousands of club-goers.

 He also recorded new material on Terry Hunter label T's Box, "I Am A House Head" which gained international exposure last summer and was a new house phrase used throughout the digital promotional world. Once again Farley Jackmaster Funk is currently hard at work, blazing a trail across the globe while also hosting numerous events back home in Chicago.
