The house music soul will be alive and well at Sound tonight with Francis Mercier headlining the night following the well versed Sweet Like Chocolate and Greg Cerrone. Preview the lineup ahead of the occasion, made special with a unique character of sound.
Deep Root Records´ Founder and Brown University graduate, Francis Mercier will be carrying the vibes of his summer Ibiza set with Themba for the headlining slot of the evening. Leading the afro and tribal house movement out of New York with regular yacht raves on the Hudson alongside the Statue of Liberty and always equipped with a proper selection of timeless house and refreshing melodic records, Francis´ personality is ever-present behind the decks. Coming off a release with BLOND:ISH on Insomniac Records and with Tom & Collins on Gorgon City´s Realm Records, it leaves no doubt Mercier will bring the heat to Sound Nightclub.
He heads back to New York next for Elrow Summer Festival before jumping across the pond again. Get to know more about Francis Mercier in our interview around his release on abracadabra.
