Norman joins us for the 2nd of his 4 summer parties Up On The Roof on the end of May bank holiday Sunday, spinning an extended Good Times rooftop set, along with house legends Farley & Heller.
As the Carnival godfather, Norman Jay MBE and his Good Times Sound System has entertained and educated revelers since the 1980’s, bringing new soul, hip hop and house music to the masses. The founder and master of funk and soul brings the irrepressible Good Times vibe to his favourite Brixton rooftop.
Though prominent house DJs and producers individually, London-based remixers Terry Farley and Pete Heller enjoyed their greatest notoriety working as a duo. They first surfaced in the early ’90s as part of Andrew Weatherall’s Boys Own collective, making their debut with a hugely popular remix of the Farm’s “Groovy Train”; hits for Espiritu (“Francisca”), Sunscreem (“Perfect Motion”), K Klass (“Don’t Stop”) and Secret Life (“As Always”) followed.
Farley and Heller also earned wide renown when their mix of M People’s “Open Your Heart” topped Billboard’s club charts in 1995. A year later they reunited to assemble a two-disc entry into the Journeys by DJs beatmix series, with their own “Ultra Flava” 12-inch appearing at much the same time. In addition to working under the own names, Farley and Heller additionally recorded as Roach Motel, an outlet for their more underground projects; they also joined producer Gary Wilkinson in the lush garage techno trio Fire Island, as well as teaming with Weatherall and Hugo Nicholson in Bocca Juniors.
Their other pop remix projects include work with New Order (“Regret”), Michael Jackson (“Blood on the Dancefloor”), his sister Janet (“When I Think of You”), Kylie Minogue (“Where Has the Love Gone?”), U2 (“Salome”) and Pet Shop Boys (“Go West”).
