Papa Loko becomes 3 and what a better way to honour the occasion than dedicating this special night to the 3 phonetic components of the Cosmic Vibration, the sound of AUM! AUM, which is the way OM is pronounced, represents the 3 stages of cosmic creation and the 3 phases of nature: creation, preservation and dissolution. It also represents Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva, the three deities in the Hindu Trinity. It is said that AUM is so powerful that by deep concentration on its vibration, the soul can reach liberation from its karmic bondage. Since Papa is aware of the power of sound and the effects of its vibration on the psyche, the body and the mind, it makes perfect sense to celebrate its 3rd anniversary in an AUM-filled spirit.
Vastness and ethereal darkness, much like our Cosmos, characterises the sound of the quickly upcoming Never Lost. The Italian duo, which will be doing their UK debut at A U M, is as mysterious as its sound. What we have from them is 3 EPs full of atmosphere, one of which is released by the ethereal techno mother-label Steyoyoke and another by Us & Them Records. Never Lost have collaborated with our long-time favourites Binaryh & Nick Devon and have recently performed alongside Moonwalk.
After a strong DJ debut at Loko in December, we are excited to welcome back TiGoX (Giuseppe Gallo) who will be opening again in, what is becoming, his characteristic deep, emotive & progressive style. TiGoX has had a number of bookings since his debut, including performing a closing set for the forthcoming London Fetish Week.
For the last two birthdays, Papa’s founder and current co-promoter Othon, performed a 3-hour set and this will be no exception. Dedicated in bringing the most soul-expansive and mind-inspiring music he can source and presenting it in an unorthodox and uncompromising fashion, he is aiming to close the circle in a blissed-out and co-sharing manner.
Never Lost (1.00-3.00am)
Othon (3.00- 6.00am)
