Tommy Resort is already one of the major players on Full Moon night, due to its owners foresight to ensure that revellers who party at Tommy enjoy Full Moon the way it used to be. Firewalls light up the beach through the night, the sound system is superb, it has it’s own security to ensure the safety of it’s customers, it only serves real branded alcohol and with its mix of resident International and Local dj’s, everyone goes home happy. Sometimes we just wish it was a bit earlier, that’s all!!!
And so we up the anti even further on the beach, EXCLUSIVELY AT TOMMY RESORT for January’s Full Moon party, by bringing you exclusively on Phangan the Irish legend and former Radio 1 dance presenter FERGIE.
Fergie (aka Robert Ferguson), a DJ of international standing for the past decade, has never had a stronger and more vibrant aural identity. Playing the kind of music he wants, determined not to be held back by perceptions and tags from the past, he continues to be a global representative for electronic music by consistently breaking down underground barriers and bringing new music to the people, without compromise.
Clearly he has found his sound and the results are very evident in the free flow of original
productions and remixes being consistently supported by the likes of Sasha, John Digweed, Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin, Laurent Garnier, Slam, Umek, James Lavelle and Hell amongst many others. Underground cuts that blur genre divides have firmly established him as a proven seal of production quality.
Fergie’s ever growing “Excentric Muzik” label has been the home for the majority of his original
productions and a place where heʼs been able to fully put into place his unconventional ideas
whether that be re-releasing tracks that for him were where it all began (Salt City Orchestra – The
Book), commissioning 20 remixes for his 2009 “Rewired” project (including Slam, Umek, King
Unique and Pig & Dan) or unearthing new talent and giving them the spotlight (Spektre, Alan
Fitzpatrick, Reset Robot, Psycatron & Erphun have all remixed Fergie productions before going on
to achieving success elsewhere).
“Rekluse”, the Excentric Muzik off-shoot run by Fergie together with Henry Von has proved to be
something special, focussing on a distinct European Techno sound and developing into something
quite unique, leading Carl Cox to describe Rekluse as “definitely one of my fav labels of the year”.
2010 will see the release of a third label from the Excentric camp, “Tribal Rage” will focus on a
slightly deeper, groovier tip.
With sets in no less than 25 different countries (and gigs as far afield as Japan, Mexico,
Thailand, Russia, South Korea plus tours of South America and Australasia) Fergie continues to be
one of the most in-demand DJs in the world. Regular haunts include the track title inspiring “Exit
Club” (Kaunas, Lithuania), “Shine” and “The Stiff Kitten” (Belfast, UK), Slam’s monthly club night
“Pressure” (Glasgow, UK), “Firefly” (Nottingham, UK) where Fergie is the only guest DJ to have
played in every single venue they have ever used, “Crawdaddy” at “The Tripod” (Dublin, Ireland)
which hosted a summer Excentric party last year, as well as Circus (Liverpool, UK), Rex Club
(Paris, France), Bahrein (Buenos Aires, Argentina), D-Edge (Sao Paulo, Brazil) and not forgetting
the Miami Winter conference and Sonar festival.
It was the late Tony De Vit who took Fergie under his wing, starting him on a journey that eventually led to his own slot on Radio 1 where he championed the sounds of the underground on mainstream radio, long before minimal techno became the “du jour” genre for DJs. At only 21 he found himself
presenting live shows from Skol Beats (Brazil), Love Parade (Berlin), Meganite (Ibiza), the Miami
Winter Music Conference and not one to forget where he came from he brought his very first live
Radio 1 show back to Northern Ireland.
The show ran for 5 years and developed into a snapshot of what was going on in the underground
electronic music scene. Guests included Richie Hawtin, Sven Vath, Dave Clarke and Phil Kieran
(who both covered the show in Fergie’s absence), Carl Cox and Jeff Mills, as well as providing a
platform for many aspiring producers and DJs to show what they had to offer… the likes of Kev
Gorman (Gigolo), Anderson Noise (Noise Music), Matt Tolfrey (Leftroom) and Dave Robertson (aka
Reset Robot) all received some of their prominent initial exposure through Fergie’ show.
A proven forward thinker, constantly developing and never standing still, the architect of an ever
evolving sound by keeping one step ahead of the rest, he has never forgotten though that it’s still
just a rave. A place where people are trying to escape the realities of urban life each and every
weekend, and he cannot wait to catch up with you at Tommy Resort!
