Wild City 052: Pete Herbert
20 March 2013
One time owner of the praiseworthy Atlas Records shop in Soho, London, now over a decade ago, Pete Herbert spends the majority of his time tirelessly producing in the studio on his various musical projects.
When not in the studio he can be found regularly destroying dancefloors behind the decks at clubs such as The Nest, Fabric, Ministry Of Sound and other major parties/clubs in his hometown of London, including a annual slot at the Sancho Panza Stage at Notting Hill Carnival, one of the largest street festivals in the world.
His unique take on Balearic leftfield disco, house, italo, dub and funk has also seen him travel extensively overseas, playing regularly in genre defying parties around the world. Some of these include the infamous Goa Electronic Parties in Madrid, as well as regular slots in Paris, Marseille, Belgrade, Moscow and Copenhagen amongst others. He's also playing his second show in India this weekend!
As he weaves together classic sounds, clicking rhythms, and groovy drum patterns in this exclusive mix for Wild City he pushes the work of world-class beat makers such as Jay Shepherd, Betoko, Kolombo and Kellerkind. And although it contains no production from Herbert himself, it never strays too far from his personal artistic canon over its 58-minute duration.
Made up of pure energy and grooves, the momentum is solid and never lost. An excellent companion to some of his top-flight work.
