Locomotive Bank Holiday 10 Hours Joyride Feat. Valentino Kanzyani and Xandru photo gallery
To our music devourers: THIS WILL BE LocoMotive's BIGGEST AND BEST EVENT HANDS DOWN!
For because, and not only do we have one absolute killer artist line-up, but also we have 10 whole hours to fit it all in.
The party starts at 11PM on 3rd June and will finish sometime around 9 AM (maybe more:) the next day.
We MUST thank the Universe again for such a happening!
So, let's give you the lowdown on our guests and set-up for this fabulous event taking place on 3rd of June, the Bank Holiday week-end.
Valentino Kanzyani ( Jesus Loved You - Slovenia )
One of the founding fathers of Slovenian techno and a tireless promoter of the underground worldwide, Valentino is an artist whose body of work until now could already entitle him to an honorary place in techno's elite.
Valentino's history goes back, way before he founded his own label Jesus Loved You in 2005.
Back in 1995 he was at the forefront of the Slovenian techno revolution together with brother in beats dj UMEK.
Through hard work and raw talent Valentino and UMEK created a little techno heaven for the electronic music community of Slovenia, Northern Italy, Southern Austria and North-West Croatia at the now infamous Ambasada Gavioli.
There is no exaggeration in comparing what Valentino and UMEK achieved at Ambasada Gavioli with the role that dj's Graeme Park and Mike Pickering played in Hacienda iconic history.
And so Valentino Kanzyiani quickly became the name on everybody's track lists, from Primate Recordings to Intec Recordings and Yoshitoshi.
Valentino Kanzyiani is a dj with a rare and absolute dedication to the underground. Despite him being a mainstay on big European festival line-ups, Valentino enjoys getting down to ground level and playing intimate events of up to 400 people
With him on the line-up for our Bank Holiday event, Jesus really does love us!
Staying faithful to our little mission of bringing real underground artists from the Romanian shores, we have Miss I - Groove On and Xandru from Bucharest's Sunrise camp.
These guys are slowly but surely pushing the second wave of Romanian techno throughout the world. Young, talented and knowledgeable, both are concurring ears and hearts all the way from their native Romania to UK.
Xandru already sharing line-ups with Brother's vibe, Vera, Rhadoo , El cezere , Miss fitz , Dyed Soundorom, Shonky , Praslea , Dan Andrei , Piticu, Troy Pierce, Ambivalent, Heathrob, Nima Gorji, Herodot, Valentino Kanziani, Jeefo , Marco Carola, Audiofly, and many more....
His DJ'ing has taken him across Europe, from Bucarest to Ibiza (Underground / Privilege / Pleiadians), from Mamaia (Sunwaves) to Paris (Rex Club).
With his innate sense of rhythm, the symbiosis of his mixes, and his love for the music, we are sure he will take you on one of your best trips.
Since 2006 Miss I been playing in clubs such as: Zebra , Setup , Studio Martin, Daimon, Space or festivals such as: Open Festival or Sunwaves .
In 2008 she began the project Groove On with her friend Jo.E and till now they made their studio and lots of cultural and musical projects under that name.
We are very happy to have them both under the same roof on the same night and in the same room!
LocoMotive's residents Alex Baciu and Gabriel amaru
Gabriel amaru : his interpretation of electronic music effortlessly fuses organic melodies, sometimes surreal snippets of sound with a feel good, pumping 4/4 beat. He sounds fresh and exciting, with a raw energy coming out of his every mix.
Alex Baciu : a young, talented newcomer of the Romanian underground, Alex has been crafting his minimal-tech-house sound for many years now. Although young, Alex has already had more than a few releases on labels like Derivat Records, LOK Records, SoundCrossing Records, together with Mihai Amatti, under the moniker MAAB
We're really putting all our thought and heart into this party. As usual, it's going to be an intimate affair, just like we all love it .The place is The Nomad club, our playground. This time we've got both floors so mixing and matching between rooms is encouraged
We believe it will be a magic night. Together we'll make it so!
Aaaaal aboard the night train!
