The day has finally arrived! Underground legend John Digweed releases the highly anticipated six-disc CD compilation, ‘Last Night at Output‘. Out today on Bedrock Records, this release commemorates the ultimate closing set at the Brooklyn clubbing institution.
Recorded on New Year’s Eve 2018 at the infamous club Output, this release features over 70 tracks played throughout the exceptional ten-hour set. I was lucky enough to attend this New Year’s Eve event and I was blown away. Having been a fan of Digweed since the ’90s, I’ve seen him several times and this was by far the deepest, most spellbinding set I’ve heard. The vibe at Output was intense; the crowd was hypnotized by the throbbing beats and the overall magic of the night. This was truly a New Year’s Eve to remember.
“From sadness to joy, I had so many mixed emotions and an overwhelming pressure to deliver a party that a club of that stature deserves. I really put my heart and soul into that party drawing from my favourite tracks over the years. The 10-hour set seemed to fly by and there was just a constant sea of smiling faces from the dancefloor all night long as the crowd literally savoured every record on that crystal clear Funktion One soundsystem. After listening back to the set, I knew this album had to come out and not just be another mix online. It deserved to be a part of music collections and a memento for years to come. I am sure this album will bring back some amazing memories for the people there that night, and for those who were not, I hope you can immerse yourself in one of my favourite sets in New York for years to come.”John Digweed
An Output regular since opening its doors in 2013, Digweed played the club a dozen times in its six-year run including three consecutive New Year’s Eve appearances. Capturing the musical and emotional atmosphere of the club on its final night, ‘Last Night at Output’ comes as the label’s most challenging project yet backed by a passion-driven mission to ensure this night is remembered by clubbers and dance music aficionados worldwide.
This album totally encompasses the feeling of the night and floods me with fantastic memories. Output will forever be remembered as a ground-breaking club. It gave fans a night of underground unavowed fun. A night away from the clicking of camera phones, videos, and instawhores. When you went to Output you were there to disappear in the music. This club will truly be missed.
Digweed has a jam-packed summer tour scheduled with several stops in the States. Make plans to check him out in Texas, Atlanta, or performing alongside Sasha in New York and D.C. “Last Night at Output”, is available now as a continuous six-disc CD or an exclusive Vinyl set. Get your copy today!
