Dc7 & Angels Of Love Pres. Wow! pt#2: Frankie Knuckles, Rino Cerrone, Pirupa & More photo gallery
Following on from the hugely successful WOW! opening party, the creative minds from the legendary Italian party providers, Angels Of Love, and exceptional event agency, DC7, collide once again to bring you the second edition. Their concept is simple: to use their 20 year history to fuse absolute heroes of house music alongside rising techno stars, a collision of classic meets new - and what a party they have in store this time round!
Heading the party is house music icon, legend, innovator & superstar - the amazing Frankie Knuckles ( Def Mix). Few figures in contemporary music have influenced their respective fields the way Frankie Knuckles has revolutionized dance music. As one of the most renowned DJs in the world, Frankie Knuckles is still packing dance floors with his unique style for almost 30 years. Legions of admirers during his travels penned Frankie’s nickname The Godfather of House the press picked up on it and made it stick. Along with penning countless dance classics, he’s worked with Mary J. Blige, Sounds of Blackness, Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Diana Ross, Luther Vandross, Michael Bolton and Toni Braxton – he even has a Chicago street named after him! His London appearances are few and far between so this special, exclusive and rare performance is going to be something to behold - we can't wait!!
Rino Cerrone (Rilis) is one of the originators of the Naples sound (and an outstanding dj to boot) who along with Marco Carola, Gaetano Parisio, Davide Squillace & Mark Antonio, paved a new style of warm, rhythmic and hypnotic techno. An exceptional dj who knows his art to perfection, expect another exceptional journey on the 28th…
New Desolat star and current darling of the house/techno circuit, Pirupa lands in London. In just a few years, this Italian dj/producer has captured the ears of the finest labels, djs and producers around. Productions on Defected, Cecille, Viva Music, Noir and more recently on Loco Dice’s Desolat imprint, have catapulted him onto the electronic/dance radar with the house and techno main players all pushing his music – we look forward to his WOW debut...
In room two we welcome one of Italy’s coolest clubs, DolceVita . With regular shows from the likes of Richie Hawtin , Sven Vath , Villalobos , Carola & Dub Fire , these guys know their techno… Representing is Dolcevita resident Gigi Squillante and special guests Irregular Synth from the DC7 collective / Orion Musik artist, plus Paride Saraceni & Dema . Collectively, this duo have released on Trapez , Harthouse and a host of cool imprints – we look forward to them tearing up the terrace. Completing the bill is DC7 resident floor destroyer, Gianni Scotto and afterhours master, Diego CK Family – expect a musical riot.
Finally, in room three the Subterrainia people return for another party upstairs. With a crowd full of energy and high-octane djs, it’s a party in a party.
WOW#1 set the standard and edition #2 raises the bar even further – with 3 rooms of stunning music and incredible headliners, expect another magnificent party on Saturday 28th April!
