Maurice Fulton At La Cheetah

Maurice Fulton cut his teeth as a hip-hop DJ, and most noticibly programmed drums and played keyboards on aboveground house hits by Crystal Waters and Ultra Naté. He started a stockpile of production pseudonyms including Boof, Eddie & the Eggs, Sticky People, and Syclops -- that likely numbers north of 20. His best-known work will forever remain within Crystal Waters' "Gypsy Woman," but the early 2000s saw him achieve a different kind of notoriety as the non-shrieking half of Mu, a collaborative affair with his wife, Mutsumi Kanamori. Mu's Afro Finger and Gel (2003) and Out of Breach (Manchester's Revenge) (2005) are two gleaming examples of left-field house at its least predicable.

Maurice has also developed into the most reliably creative and off-the-wall remixer. A complete compilation of his commissioned output would span several discs. A typical Fulton remix bends and mutates synthesized elements of house, funk and disco without sounding the least bit stilted or forced. In Fulton's hands, polite and pleasant house tracks are given edge and a whole lot of bite.

La Cheetah in Glasgow are proud to have him and invite you to join them for this rare treat!

Support on the night will be in the more than capable hands of Glasgow based selector Jamie Thomson (Traxx).
