AND WE KICK IT OFF WITH NONE OTHER THAN RECLOOSE!!
Recloose is known most recently for his amazing EP on Delusions of Grandeur: Don't Get Me Wrong (with an uber notable rmx by underground stalwart, Tornado Wallace). And to date released a number of groundbreaking 12’s for Planet E and Rush Hour, a host of remixes, and four full-length albums for noteworthy labels !K7, Peacefrog, Octave Lab and Sonar Kollektiv. He has been responsible for several hit singles which remain somewhat hallowed amongst educated heads – namely ‘Cardiology’, (incidentally with a five-star remix from Isolee), ‘Dust’ featuring Joe Dukie, and ‘Can’t Take It’ featuring R’n’B sensation Dwele, later stunningly re-worked by Carl Craig.
A much in-demand DJ, Recloose spent years traversing clubs and festivals around the world, as well as performing as a turntablist for both Carl Craig’s Innerzone Orchestra and the more esoteric Uri Caine ensemble. He has spent much of his last few years recording and playing with his funk-oriented Recloose Live Band, rendering his more house oriented DJ sets a rare treat. SO Toronto, get ready for an amazing treat, as Recloose sets up in the city's hottest new venue: BLK BOX!!
