Essentially, the premise of the night is thus: 12 seminal anthems, performed by their 12 heavyweight producers, playing for 12 minutes each and celebrating those moments that have changed dance music forever.
Hosted by the Red Bull Music Academy, it’s sure to be a full-on clubbing love in, with each producer given 12 minutes to present their genre-defining tune in a unique and electrifying way. At the end of their set, each producer will hand over the controls by highlighting their personal connection to the following performer: bigging up the influence that artist has had on their own musical journey. Each set will be accompanied by a full graphic working by Hexstatic, providing a kaleidoscopic history lesson: personal anecdotes, original flyer artwork and relevant contemporary footage contextualise club culture across eras and genres .
