Even if you still don’t know who Ian Pooley is, chances are if you go clubbing you will have wiggled your arse to one of his records as some time or another.
His tracks such as "What’s your number?" "Allnighter," "Chord Memory," "Loopduelle" and "Rollerskate Disco" have been championed by jocks from across the globe be it Bidlo or Carl Cox.
Not without reason has the fresh-faced 25 year old from Mainz, Germany been tour DJ For Daft Punk or asked to remix the likes of Sven Vath, The Cardigans, Carl Cox, Dave Angel, Dee-lite, Daft Punk and Roger Sanchez (with whom, together with Armand Van Helden they from the house-music equivalent of the freemasons called the Mongoloids).
Ian Pooley (or Ian Pinnekamp to his mum) has talent. Lots of it. Exactly why promoters regularly choose him to headline their shows, and that’s even with other deejays changing the records.
Prague’s leading light-jockeys T.N.T. and F.I.S.A. have had the honour of playing with their switches for him in Prague and Berlin, meaning he’s always worth getting off your butt for. If you do, other surprises await those who can fork out whatever cover charges at the door. If you’re looking for a top night out with seriously good tuneage and all the trimmings I reckon you should go see hime (or you could stay at home and watch the telly alone again).
