RUSTY EGAN - Chilled Electronic Beats (DJ Mix Set) Jocks & Nerds, Ace Hotel London, March 10th 2016 Synth Electro Italo Disco Dance


 
Rusty Edan was the DJ at The Blitz, the influential New Romantic nightclub in London where he worked with Steve Strange from 1979 until 1981. Whilst there, he introduced German (Kraftwerk), Japanese (Yellow Magic Orchestra) and British (Eno, Ultravox, Landscape) electronic/synthpop to the British club scene, almost single-handedly putting together the soundtrack for the New Romantic movement.
 Egan also owned The Cage, a New Romantic-era record store on London's King's Road. As the club grew in popularity, Egan began to be recognised as a central figure in London's nightlife.

In 1982, he and Strange opened up the Camden Palace nightclub (Now KOKO) in London, where he continued to spread and influence the development of electronica in the UK. For a time, he switched to producing records for many of the bands he used to DJ, including Spear of Destiny, Shock, Visage and The Senate.
Egan was later brought back into his career as a disc jockey by the allure of the internet as a medium for sharing music. Presently, he works as a DJ playing and promoting 1980s style synthpop and electronic music.
On 13 June 2008, Egan appeared DJing at the 'Big Top' as part of the Isle of Wight Festival.
Egan appeared alongside former Visage bandmate Steve Strange on makeover show Pop Goes the Band in early 2009 on Living TV. He had his teeth drastically reconstructed as part of his makeover.
Egan won the category for lifetime achievement at the 2009 London Club and Bar Awards.
Previous winners have included Richard Branson, Mark Fuller and Nick House.
In January 2011, Egan and Steve Strange reopened the Blitz Club for one night, with performances from Roman Kemp's band Paradise Point and electro punk artist Quilla Constance plus DJ sets from Egan himself.
2016 Egan made his Bowie Mix and makes a weekly radio show on www.mi-soul.com
