If you have ever been over to the White Isles during the summer season, you would of no doubt of heard about the Monday madness that happens at DC-10 courtesy of House and Techno powerhouse, Circoloco. Having toured the brand extensively over the years across the globe, they touch down in London once again for a mammoth party of epic proportions. Last December they took over Printworks for a roadblock session that sold out within days, so it was only right that they return to a much larger venue in North London, The Drumsheds.
They will bring a slice of Balearic sunshine to the city for their biggest London show to date, transforming the colossal venue into a clubbing mecca for an all-day event that will feature the highest standards of production.
The lineup for The Drumsheds is a collection of Circoloco's esteemed deejays that have represented the iconic organisation in Ibiza in previously. Below are 4 artists billed to play that we are excited to hear, with a little taster of what can be expected courtesy of Circoloco's very own podcast and a BBC Essential Mix:
Seth Troxler is one of electronic music’s most instantly recognisable characters, as well-regarded for his encyclopaedic knowledge of early Chicago house and minimal techno through to obscure indie rock and ambient psychedelia, as he is as a cultural commentator, art curator, restaurateur and entrepreneur. Descended from a family of cowboys and Baptist preachers, he’s part African-American, part Egyptian, part Cherokee Indian but while his heritage is all-American his global outlook, and unique way of viewing the world through the prism of contemporary music culture, transcends his Mid-Western origins.
Joseph Capriati is deservedly one of techno’s most in-demand headliners. Now over a decade into his career as a globally touring DJ, there's hardly an accolade Joseph Capriati hasn't achieved, Capriati has amassed an extensive and accomplished discography, there is no doubt he is a DJ first and producer second. First manning the decks at just 11 years old, Capriati was a natural and soon began his journey into the footsteps of Naples techno pioneers like Marco Carola and Rino Cerrone.
Founder and A&R of Life and Death, Manfredi Romano grew up tour-managing punk bands and organizing leftfield music events. Eclectic DJ and fine chef. As a performer, Tennis valiantly showcases an astute ability to create intimacy in even the vastest of gatherings. As a respected producer, Romano consistently channels his past relationships with post-rock luminaries such as Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Tortoise and Fugazi into intricately-synthesised electronic constellations.
Gerd Janson is the quintessential DJ’s DJ, unearthing the gems that get other music lovers hot and excited. The man has his plate full. Whether at the helm of the long-running Liquid club night at Frankfurt’s Robert Johnson with DJ comrade Thomas Hammann, dishing out simmering analog House as co-owner of label Running Back, or penning many a story for Germany’s Spex and Groove magazines, not to mention his scholarship of American studies, he seems to run on more powerful batteries than the rest of us.
Bedouin is a Brooklyn-based production & DJ partnership between nomads Rami Abousabe and Tamer Malki who are creating their own idiosyncratic spell of melodies and rhythms. Together they share an eclectic sonic vision that pulls from diverse influences owing to their Middle Eastern heritage, Western upbringing, and world travels. Their combined musical backgrounds and ever-evolving taste captures the sensibility of imagination and constantly explores the connection between ourselves and the future.
