THERAPY :: YokoO [Plusminus/Fanfare/Kina Music/Affin] :: Friday 9th April ::
Currently based in Australia, YokoO is an original French born - European raised - lover of all things deep. A true “artiste” in every sense of the word, he vows to take his listener on an hypnotic mind voyage through the soul embodying spirit and passion – and he always delivers...
YokoO has emerged into the "lumiere" as a DJ/Producer of significance, boosting the Deep House sector of the dance music industry with his masterful mixing skills and a refined sense of tune selections, with subtle melodies that clamber atop the senses and thick instrumental textures strewn atop profound bass lines that surge powerfully through exposed bodies and corners.
Leaving the strict dance floor format, his compositions are aimed at the attentive listener and broaden the electronic spectrum by suggesting an alternative to clubbing. His sound is evidently a recreation of his deeply spiritual relationship with technology and music. YokoO’s creations can be qualified as deep, groove worthy, meaningful and emotional. Aiming at achieving more intimate emotions and feelings through his creations, YokoO is persistently turned towards the inner soul. He strives to reach each individual listener in particular rather than please the crowds. With this in mind, he creatively combines his electronic sounds to create a “kaleidoscopique” voyage of a spiritual nature.
His Dj sets lend themselves easily to different locations and are adaptable to various environments from small intimate spaces to festivals. YokoO’s productions are unique and unclassifiable - with such thorough attention to detail, every inch of your body and your soul will feel touched – a welcome perversion. He has made his mark on the European scene with his innovative EP's signed to a variety of record labels such as PlusMinus and Hertzlich in Germany and Kina in Italy.
His first 12” released on PlusMinus Recordings has been played and charted by major players in the scene such as John Digweed, Anthony Pappa, Gorge, Brothers Vibe, Valentino Kanzyani, DJ Fex, Slam, Phonogenic, Roberto Rodriguez, Louis Osbourne and Shades Of Gray to name a few. Each of his upcoming releases is impatiently awaited. Keep an ear out, as 2010 will be an exciting year for YokoO and his “Musique Sentimentale”.

Lou and the boys have a few treats in store over the next few weeks as they roll out a new cocktail list. New variations on old classics though have shown up in the booth. Pina Coladas, Gin Fizz, and Sicilian Flips have all assisted in getting the tunes, and the room spinning. Though if you’re feeling creative, you can ask them for a fresh recipe straight out of their knowledgeable heads.
The kitchen is slinging hot, fresh and reasonably priced feasts at ya from 5pm until late, just when you need to be taken care of. Jodie and Jonny get their aprons on and, you know, the hudu trance takes over. Light and tasty, and perfect for an energy boost early in the evening if you are planning on a late night boogie.
Do you have a whole heap of slightly unbalanced friends? Think you might need a group session? Make an appointment early. Book space in the club, arrange bar accounts and entry with Jodie, on 3252 9550. Be quick though, there's a whole lot of you nutbags out there...
House music, for heads and feet..
