After the unrivalled vibes of the last gathering, Ketoloco are happy to announce their next event is to be held at the three-roomed space of The Sidings Warehouse. It also happens to be one of Ketoloco's biggest yet with sets from Todd Terje, Audiojack, Droog, Mark Henning, Tapesh and more on Sunday May 26th.
If you were at Cable last time out you will remember the sit-downs during Solomon’s set, the killer sound system, the full and colourful dancefloor and the fact it was all sold out weeks in advance. Well for this next session, all three rooms of The Sidings will be used so the 'Loco crew can fully stretch their wings across the blank canvas that is the club. So too will they be bringing in meaty Funktion One stacks and high end lighting rigs for added oomph… cos that’s how they roll. And so to the diverse line up that touches on many different shades of house, disco and tech from across the scene.
There are few artists who embody nu disco and edit culture as wholly as Norwegian Todd Terje. In recent years he’s grown to become a superstar in his own right with highly sought after, genre defining releases like The Arps, Ragysh and Inspector Norse coming on a range of seminal labels. Terje gets more out of his machines, makes brighter colours and more infectious grooves than any of his peers and as a DJ spans eras, epochs and genres with a learned skill.
Up next, Leeds’ finest makers of dance floor dynamite, Audiojack, were the first ever act to play the original basements parties back in Headingly so are welcome guests for this event, and given ‘Loco’s championing of Diynamic artists over the years it no surprise this time out they have newbies Hunter/Game playing. Finishing off the main room line-up is deep-disco spinner Phil Dudman.
Meanwhile in the second room, inimitable slow and sexy house trio Droog headline and will no doubt champion the sorts of emotive sounds which have made their LA label Culprit the hot property it is in 2013. Also playing is Soma and Clink’s trusty tech house craftsmen Mark Henning – whose ‘Trojan’ tune has been an enduring Ketoloco anthem over the past year – as well as the Loco DJs themselves plus ToeJam main man, Adam Saville.
In the cosier third room, brightly emerging promotion Bad Apple take charge with their Bristol brethren Pardon My French, and together their residents play with Get Physical & Noir Music house don Tapesh leading the affray.
There are not many chances to catch such a comprehensive selection of house heads in London, especially somewhere as true to the underground as The Sidings Warehouse, so you don’t want to be sleeping on this one....
