- Erol Alkan
- Cowboy Rhythmbox
It is with enormous pleasure that we welcome Erol Alkan as the club’s next thirteen week resident, presenting ‘To The Rhythm’ every Friday for three months straight, starting in July.
As one of London music’s most prized assets, Alkan has uncompromisingly paved his way within the industry through, it seems, endless means and guises: Boss of the eulogized label Phantasy, coveted remixer, producer of countless critically acclaimed albums, one half of ‘Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve’, a decade long resident DJ at seminal London club night Trash, resident at Bugged Out! and now, the fifteenth XOYO resident.
2ManyDjs, the guys behind Soulwax will be joining Erol Alkan in the basement this week. Their infamous DJ sets deconstruct genres with their forward thinking, non-judgemental approach to popular music. From gaining popularity in Belgium in the ‘90s they finally came to London started playing at Erol Alkan’s club night Trash in the early 2000s. Currently, they are holding a residency in Ibiza and are still touring all over the world. With their tongue in cheek stage presence - donning tuxedos whilst playing to maximum capacity venues, these guys put on a show not to be missed.
Joining Alkan and 2ManyDjs in room 1 are Cowboy Rhythmbox, made up of producers Nathan Gregory Wilkins and Richard X. Relatively new signees to Phantasy Sound, they have already released a 3 track EP that has established themselves as a force to be reckoned with. Taking influences from Detroit Techno and Euro Disco, their unique approach to electronic music makes for an exciting DJ set.
Room 2 sees London-based Rory Phillips & Nadia Ksaiba.
