About Si Storer
Si Storer is a local name synonymous with some of the most celebrated dance tracks of all time.
As the in-house producer for Cleveland City records,with releases on FFFR, Sony, Network, Positiva, EMI and even Erick Morillos Subliminal imprint, Si is simply one of the Midlands most worldy-revered house producers –progressive, disco and uplifting house.
His very first release as Love Revolution “Give it to me baby” became a well-played anthem for Sasha in 1991. Not bad for a first attempt!
Si then moved to work as the in-house producer at the legendary Cleveland City records in Wolverhampton. Most of the well-loved tunes from the label and it subsidiaries were touched by Si’s hand, with the hook and bass-led, uplifting and credible sound that was so popular with all of the A-list DJ’s of the time – including all of the Direct 2 Disc releases, DJ Tools and Co.’s volume 1 E.P, Taiko’s “Echo Drop”, Rhyme Times “You and me”, Screen 2’s “Hey Mr DJ”, Eve Gallaghers “You can have it all” and the track that hit the UK number one spot Tony Di Barts “The Real Thing”. Si also provided the “Cleveland City” remix versions for other labels, including Amos’s “Let love shine” on Positiva. These dancefloor-targeted tracks still sound amazing today , and were standard purchases for any DJs and record collectors alike upon their release.
One of Si’s pseudonyms was Stereogen, from which came the massively popular, synth-heavy and MC Duke sampling progressive house “Hi-Q”. Favoured by Sasha and Digweed, played extensively by them back in the day and since, it featured in their 2002 live Essential Mix, 10 years after its initial release.
Si’s last release in 2002 was “Digital Disco” on the aforementioned Subliminal imprint.
Further to the acclaimed production work, Si held DJ residences at Birminghams Institute and Snobs as well as Love Revolution in Wolverhampton. UK guest appearances included Club UK, Hard Times, Quadrant Park, Sugar Shack, The Gardening Club, Gatecrasher, and most of the other club nights in the country. Worldwide guest appearances included France, Turkey, New York and Mexico.
We welcome Si to Heritage for a specially edited classic house DJ set alongside his long-term friend Tomislav.
About Nik Gillet
Resident at Miss Moneypennys, Toast and Gods Kitchen, managing three record stores, guest DJ spots all over the world from the US to Ibiza, and one of the nicest guys you could meet in the music industry.
Nik started working in HMV in the early 90s, went on to managing an independent record store, Vinyl Matters, specialising in upfront dance. Nik was then head-hunted to work at the world famous 'Hard to Find Records', before being asked to transform the renowned ‘Depot' shop into a vinyl store specialising in house and garage. The position earned Nik the title of 'Resident' at Jim's club - the legendary Miss Moneypenny's. Three years later, Nik then accepted an invitation to assist in the running of the brand new ‘Massive Records’ outlet in Birmingham.
Nik has shared the decks with some of the biggest names in the business: Morillo, Roger Sanchez, Harry 'Choo Choo' Romero, Jose Nunez, Junior Sanchez, Danny Rampling, Judge Jules, Tall Paul, Cassius, Graeme Park, Jazzy M, Alistair Whitehead, Steve Lawler and Joey Musaphia.
This is Niks second Heritage appearance, and we are proud to have one of the nicest guys in DJing returning to our decks.
