In the face of much pointy-shouldered competition last time out, Ketoloco excelled. The Light bar venue they have made so unquestionably their own was alive for 11 memorable hours with smiling faces, dancing feet and connoisseur sounds. And that will be the blueprint once again as they go further underground in August, with Kompakt and Pampa man Robag Wruhme the headliner as he plays his first gig in the city for over a year…
Having forged himself a glistening career as one half of esteemed outfit Wighnomy Bros, Robag Whrume is a DJ and production talent known across the world for his exciting take on house and techno. More recently, though, the man has stepped out on his own, with an incredibly deft compilation for Kompakt coming earlier this year, just before the release of his latest full length album, Thora Vukk, on DJ Koze’s much lauded, left-of-centre imprint Pampa.
It is a delicate, emotional and accomplished album that strays far from the ‘floor and is made up of delicate found sounds, highly musical interludes and organic production techniques of the sort that also characterised his odd ball podcast for Resident Advisor recently. Quite frankly, he’s one of the finest bookings the crew have ever tied down and they are glad to be backing him up, doing what they do best, spinning from deep to druggy via weirded-out and more in their slots either side of him on the night.
As well as the tasty sonic treats, there will be plenty of munchies from the BBQ on tap all day, as well as an outdoor beer stall, an unavoidably carnival atmosphere across the outdoor terrace and two indoor floors and the punchiest of punchy sounds courtesy of an industry standard Funktion One. This will be a final opportunity this year for you to dance under that big bright ball in the sky and, given that every ‘Loco event this year has sold out in advance, we suggest you don’t hang around in getting your ticket…
