F&S After­par­ty: Eddie Pillar

Presented by Sound­crash x Faith in Strangers

About this event

Funk & Soul Week­ender offi­cial after­par­ty at Faith in Strangers: DJ Set by leg­end Eddie Pillar.

Best known as the founder and man­ag­ing direc­tor of Acid Jazz Records, Eddie Piller is also an entre­pre­neur, DJ, and radio show host. 

Piller grew up in Lon­don’s East End sur­round­ed by music: His moth­er ran the Small Faces’ fan club, and his love of punk as a teen in the 70s evolved into an endur­ing pas­sion for mod cul­ture and music by the end of the decade. 

With DJ Gilles Peter­son, Piller start­ed Acid Jazz Records in 1987. Along with the James Tay­lor Quar­tet, the label’s ros­ter grew to include Cor­duroy, Brand New Heav­ies, Jamiro­quai, Gal­liano, and Moth­er Earth, all artists who helped define the acid jazz sound of the late 80s and 90s. Lat­er that decade, Piller pur­chased the Blue Note night­club and moved into broad­cast­ing, host­ing radio shows for Jazz FM, BBC Radio Lon­don, BBC6music, and a British Radio Award-win­ning show for Q Radio.

Doors from 9pm!
