Going Out - Daniele Baldelli at The Berkeley Suite

This Saturday night (Sat 16th Nov) legendary DJ and producer Daniele Baldelli takes control of the music in one of Glasgow's most intimate  and greatest clubs The Berkeley Suite for this rare special appearance. The self-titled “oldest DJ in Italy”, is the founding father of the Cosmic disco sound. His creative blend of disco, funk, jazz, synth pop, reggae, electronic music, and African and Brazilian records – often played slower or faster – introduced many club-goers to a new mix of rhythm and sound. Hailing from the town of Cattolica in Northern Italy, Daniele made his DJ debut at 17 at local clubs Tana and Tabu, before graduating to the seminal Baia Degli Angeli, a glamorous VIP club whose DJ booth was in a glass elevator. This led to Daniele’s long residency at the Cosmic club by Lake Garda that opened in Italy in 1979. At this infamous, hedonistic club Baldelli would be simultaneously spinning, triggering drum machines and samplers, blending batucada samba with Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, and African rhythms, all done on 70s turntable technology. No mean feat! Baldelli’s influence continues until today, thanks to his DJ appearances around the world, and compilations such as Cosmic – The Original or Baia Degli Angeli 1977-1978.

Local leftfield disco maverick Billy Woods (Supermax) will be on hand to warm things up on the night. Prepare yourself for a night to remember!
