Former international aid worker teams up with Icelandic security specialist and former top model to create an international DJ supergroup. Certainly not what you’d expect from a group called Thugfucker – but then Greg Oreck and Holmar Filipsson often do tend to defy expectations.
Growing up on an Icelandic commune full of some of the country’s finest political thinkers, Holmar eschewed his past and all the heady philosophy of his childhood to move to New York and search out more physical and visceral methods of bringing happiness to the masses. Meanwhile Greg was in the midst of a successful (if short-lived) political career in America when he too became disillusioned with the duplicity and self serving interest of those around him. Disturbed by the void he saw in most people’s lives, it was in the dark depths of the New York underground club scene that he finally found his true calling.
Unbeknownst to each other, Holmar and Greg then propelled themselves along similar paths, throwing parties, honing their musical and studio skills and searching out inspiration from a wide variety of musical sources. Then one late night, Holmar and Greg recognized the depth of their shared passions. Thugfucker was born.
From Nu Disco to House to Progressive to Tech to Deep to Disco, this night is all about 4/4 dance music as interpreted and presented by members of Decibel, Flammable, Inner Flight and Trashed. Every Thursday at Q.
