Erol Alkan b2b Boys Noize
Room 2: Lemmy Ashton
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.
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, one half of ‘Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve’, a decade long resident DJ at seminal London club night Trash, resident at Bugged Out! and now, the fifteenth XOYO resident.
With his thirteen week residency in full swing, Erol Alkan welcomes German producer Boys Noize to play a vinyl only, back to back DJ set in the XOYO basement. The pair have collaborated many times before, having both released music on each other’s record labels. If their past collaborations are anything to go by, expect to hear thumping techno with acid house influences.
Keeping the acid theme running on this weeks roster, Alkan has chosen Tin Man to support in room 1. Having released on Alkan’s label Phantasy Sound with a remix of Erol Alkan himself, this producer knows exactly how to utilise his influences of acid, techno and ambient music. Frequently playing in venues all around the world, XOYO are looking forward to opening their doors to this selector.
In room 2 Alkan welcomes London’s own Bugged Out resident DJ Lemmy Ashton.
