DJ Spoony Takes on The Royal Albert Hall
DJ Spoony is best known for being a pioneer and founding father of the UK garage scene. Alongside his co-partners in The Dreem Teem, DJ Spoony elevated garage in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, laying the foundations for the future of Garage in the UK music scene.
The Dreem Teem achieved national chart success with their classics, ‘The Theme’ and their collaboration with Neneh Cherry ‘Buddy X’.
DJ Spoony has had a successful career in music production, broadcasting and entertainment but now he takes on a new venture.
Twenty years later and DJ Spoony is taking the third instalment of his “Garage Classics” to the Royal Albert Hall this October. After his highly anticipated album release due in July, DJ Spoony is taking his album to the Royal Albert Hall alongside acclaimed composer and conductor Katie Chatburn, better known from the 36-piece Ignition Orchestra.
When discussing the announcement Spoony said:
“When I first heard the orchestra, there were three things I wanted to do: bring the new compositions to London, get the show recorded for an album, and the ultimate ‘Dreem’ − if all went according to plan − was to perform at the Royal Albert Hall. Needless to say I’m smiling and very proud. I cannot explain how delighted I am.”
The release date of his Garage Classical album is Friday the 6thof September on the label since ’93/Sony.
Tickets for the Royal Albert Hall show, scheduled for Thursday the 24thof October, went on sale on Friday the 31stof May and can be purchased on the Royal Albert Hall website.
