Hailing from Chicago, USA, Farley is
widely acknowledged as the pioneer of House music. Farley
started DJing at Chicago's Playground in 1981, where he held
a residency until 1987. He was also one of the original members
of the 'Hot Mix 5' DJ team and was responsible for the ground
breaking mix shows on Chicago's WBMX radio station which reached
over a million listeners.
Farley first shot into prominence in 1986 with the hit 'Love
Can't Turn Around' on DJ International which featured the
awesome vocals of Darryl Pandy.
Since the early 90s, Farley has carved a name for himself
as one of the most respected DJs in the UK and is a regular
visitor to Great Britain. Playing his uplifting house and
garage set, Farley is a regular at some of Britain's most
prestigious venues, Progress, Moneypenny's, Legends and Deja
Vu to name but a few.

in the country numerous times as well as The Met (Armagh),
Miss Moneypennys, the Midlands Superclub, Tonic and Delicious
and has held a residency at a Galaxy radio club night in Newcastle
where he plays to 1500 clubbers. For someone who travels into
Britain from Chicago each week, it's been quite a year!

All of the above goes to prove that Farley can still boast
the prestigious title of 'The Godfather of House.'
