The UK garage legend will play stateside for the first time ever next weekend.
London's Otis Roberts has been a veteran of UK garage for almost two decades now, rising through the ranks as one of its most prominent DJs. He's renowned for his technical wizardry on the decks, specifically CDJs. He's had a long-running show on Kiss FM and plays around the UK quite regularly, but strangely enough, he's never set foot in the US—to play a gig, anyways.
It looks like that will change next week, starting with a party in LA at Sound on Thursday, July 3rd. From there, he'll head to Ferndale's Grasshopper Underground (near Detroit), followed by two New York gigs on the 5th: an afternoon show for MoMA's PS1 Warm Up series alongside Todd Edwards, and then a night at Output's Panther Room. He'll make another trip in August, this time playing Washington DC and Miami on the 14th and 15th, respectively.
Check out a three-and-a-half-hour DJ set from this past February below.
Tickets for the Output event are available on RA.
