The music we love, every Saturday
French native but London-based producer, Romare joins us for XOYO Loves on Saturday 24th February. Archie Fairhurst has been lauded for his sample based production that lifts rhythms and melodies from jazz and blues classics, being awarded Album of the Year by DJ Magazine. Renowned DJs such as Gilles Peterson, Bonobo and even Huw Stephens have praised the young producer for intricate and eclectic mixes, noting his finer tastes in everything from psychedelic to disco and everything in between.
Joining Romare is New York producer and percussionist, Photay. Heavily influenced by the afro-beat and hi-life culture that dominates Guinea, West Africa; Photay's sound is based in beautiful latin and african percussion but also incorporates more of the subtle rhythms of house and disco. Brilliant Corners resident, Donna Leake rounds off the bill for the night, selecting choice cuts from her wide collection of jazz, soul and disco. This will be a night of eclectic but selective mixing; with rare hits firing off from the start, we're excited to see where these dedicated DJs take us for XOYO Loves.
