Room 2: Rory Phillips & Nadia Ksaiba
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.
2ManyDjs, the guys behind Soulwax will be joining Erol Alkan in the basement for the penultimate show of his residency. From gaining popularity in Belgium in the ‘90s they finally came to London and started playing at Erol's club night Trash in the early 2000s.
Their infamous DJ sets deconstruct genres with their forward thinking, non-judgemental approach to dance music. From funky R&B to rockabilly, from electro to banging German techno: if it gets the party started, 2manydjs have it in their record bag.
Joining Alkan and 2ManyDjs in room 1 are Cowboy Rhythmbox, made up of producers Nathan Gregory Wilkins and Richard X. Relatively new signees to Phantasy Sound, they have already released a 3 track EP that has established themselves as a force to be reckoned with. Taking influences from both Detroit Techno and Euro Disco, their unique approach to electronic music makes for an exciting DJ set.
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.
Room 2 plays host to London-based Rory Phillips & Nadia Ksaiba.
