In Conversation With Tony Humphries
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Prolific and pioneering house DJ and producer, Tony Humphries will be sitting down with Red Bull Music Academy alumna Lorna Clarkson for an in-depth lecture about the legacy of the New Jersey Sound, the house music subgenre spawning from his radio slots, studio productions with Strictly Rhythm and residencies at New Jersey club mainstay Zanzibar and London’s Ministry of Sound.
Humphries’ name is synonymous with Zanzibar, the famed Newark club where for over a decade he introduced the world to the sometimes raw but always soulful subgenre of house known as the Jersey Sound – a sound that was also heard via his studio productions and remixes for artists ranging from Mtume and Soul II Soul to Janet Jackson, and his work on KISS FM. With over three decades in the music industry and contemporaries including Frankie Knuckles, Shep Pettibone and Larry Levan, Tony’s vast influence spans both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. The free lecture will be hosted at 107 Projects in Redfern on Saturday, September 2.
