A party that connects the dots between electro and electroclash.
Room 2: LD LDN
It is with enormous pleasure that we reveal Erol Alkan as the club’s next thirteen week resident, presenting ‘To The Rhythm’ every Friday for three months straight, starting in July.
For week 3 of Alkan’s residency, he has invited Jimmy Edgar down to the XOYO basement. Berlin-based and Detroit born, Edgar has become a household name in electronic music. The producer signed with Warp when he was just 18 and since then has gone from strength to strength. After spending years in production he co-founded record label Ultramajic, and now Alkan welcomes him to share his eclectic knowledge of music with us.
Joining Alkan and Edgar in room 1 is acid house and electro pioneer I-F. His hit back in 1997 ‘Space Invaders Are Smoking Grass’ is often referred to as the birth of Electroclash. With an encyclopaedic knowledge of disco, house, acid and techno, be prepared for a set that will be as diverse as it is captivating.
In room 2, NTS host LDLDN steps outside of his excellent Spacebass radio show and into a rare all night club excursion, expect everything from this knowledgable Dj.
As one of London music’s most prized assets, Alkan has uncompromisingly paved his way within the industry through, it seems, endless means and guises: Boss of the eulogized label Phantasy, coveted remixer, producer of countless critically acclaimed albums, a decade long resident DJ at seminal London club night Trash, resident at Bugged Out! and now, the fifteenth XOYO resident.
