Simoncino, Shanti Celeste and Prosumer will also play the new Vicenza party in the coming months.
Jazz Not Dead and its founder Dario Bedin, AKA Dax DJ, have been bringing underground house and techno to northern Italy for a decade. Moving from long-time home Bar Sartea, Bedin will now join forces with Qubò club as part of a new monthly event. The first party will carry something of a local feel, with veteran Leo Mas and Nick Anthony Simoncino both booked. Vinyl purist Mr. Ties (the subject of a recent RA feature) will bring his eclectic style to the venue on December 12th, before Daniele Baldelli, Shanti Celeste and Prosumer see in 2014 with shows on January 9th, February 6th and March 20th respectively. Entry to Music Is The Key is free, with the party running from 10 PM through 2 AM.
