Mr. G touches down at Gather Outdoors for momentous USA debut
Colin McBean, or Mr. G, is a true pioneer. Moved by the sounds coming out of Detroit and Chicago, he became one of the first to import house and techno to his home of UK and is widely considered a godfather of the country’s contemporary rave scene. The legend has been sought after in the states for well over two decades, but has notably declined offers to play. That is, until now. With a renaissance of underground sounds currently unfolding across the country, the timing feels right for Mr. G to make his take the decks stateside at Teksupport’s Gather Outdoors festival.
Sunday, May 26, marks the day of Mr. G’s landmark debut. True to his M.O., the iconic DJ will be bringing his live kit along with him for a particularly unique showing. Fans and curious onlookers can expect a heady mixture of soulful, grooving house cuts imbued with the infectious energy and signature aesthetic that Mr. G brings to each of his sets. His inaugural performance stateside will be one to remembered, and is primed to become a permanent part of American dance music history.
