Piers Thompson likes to get the party started. From playing with Marvin Gaye at The Venue, to DJ at the The Gargoyle's legendary Soul Furnace , from The Acid Lounge at Glastonbury to Matthew Freud's wedding, from Ibiza to New York to Cannes, he has a well deserved reputation for tempting the most reluctant guests onto the dance floor.
Described by CNN as 'one of the four best DJs in the world', Piers plays dance music that gets you moving from 30s Jazz to the Deepest House, through funk, soul and disco on the way (even the occasional Bluegrass set at festivals). What keeps party organisers coming back time after time is his ability to move seamlessly from old to new and through the genres to keep the whole party satisfied, 'a fine and rare groove where Old Skool meets Guilty Pleasures and they make out'.
You can hear him every week at Novikov or on his radio station, Portobello Radio.
