“Resurrection is not a change that takes place only after death. You must resurrect yourself while living in this body. Resurrect yourself from anger, from melancholy, from failures. Resurrect yourself from the consciousness of disease, from mental habits and weaknesses. You do it every night in sleep, which is unconscious resurrection. You must learn to do it in meditation, which is conscious resurrection… What are you afraid of? You are an immortal being. You are neither a man nor a woman, as you may think, but a soul, joyous, eternal” (Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda)
Conscious resurrection through meditation is a powerful technique that can be practiced daily but there is also another, less solitary way for awakening our true divine nature; that is resurrection through cosmic conscious dance, a dance that takes place on the physical, astral, mental and emotional levels and allows for our inner spinal snake to awake, rise and merge us with the Infinite.
New entrance measures:
Though Papa Loko has been constantly growing, we were still surprised by the amount of people turning up to our last event and especially the venue. As a result, a small number of you did not manage to get in, including a few ticket holders, which is very regrettable and for which we sincerely apologise. If you are one of those people please contact us and we will give you a refund or we can add you to the free guest list for our May party, Resurrection.
To improve the waiting time at the entrance and ensure that all ticket holders enter without having to queue too much, we have decided for Resurrection to reduce slightly the number of advance tickets and have two queues, one for ticket holders and guest list and another for people who are buying their ticket on the night. One of us will be outside to assist with the security staff and ID checking, and to facilitate the process. We will also try, when possible, to give priority to those of you who we know have been part of our Loko familia for a longer time
We are over the moon to announce for our IV years anniversary another UK debut, this time by the super-talented Swiss DJ and producer Aston Alba. Aston’s spacious and mystery-filled productions have been shaking the Papa Loko floor for nearly a year now while he has been gaining a strong foothold on the underground tech and melodic house circuit. His music has been released by Inlab Recordings.
Papa Loko’s founder, Othon is known for his transcendent techno sets, his experimental productions and his emotive neoclassical pieces. A composer and a pianist, in addition to a dj & producer, he has performed his music in venues such as the Tate Modern and The Roundhouse (UK) and across Europe. He has created work with Marc Almond, Wolfgang Tillmans, David Michael Tibet/ Current 93 and other influential artists and creatives including shamans from the Amazon rainforest. He has recently announced the creation of his new record label Conscious Expansion.
Tomkinascious is the new solo DJ project of Tom Warner from our beloved Loko duo Tom & Jarrod. Tom, whose deep multicultural, faerie techno sets are vibrating in unison with the spirit of Loko, will sure be taking us for another cosmic ride.
