Papa Loko: Vision Quest

Papa Loko: Vision Quest

Papa Loko is back and we will be guesting one of my favourite electronic artists ever! Third Son‘s music has nearly always been present in my sets and we are extremely honoured he will be joining us for a 2-hour set on the night. The upcoming VVerses, bosses of the mighty Chapter 24 Records will also be debuting, whose cosmic-tribal-tech sounds could not fit better our party spirit! Our brotherz Tom & Jarrod will initiate the magic whereas I will close the night in a traditional Loko manner.
Please read the event text before coming and start focusing on your intention for the night!

Papa Loko with Voicedrone, Othon, Candi Bianca & Tom & Jarrod, 18 March

Papa Loko with Voicedrone, Othon, Candi Bianca & Tom & Jarrod, 18 March

Papa is back at Electrowerkz for a visionary night of soul-shaking techno, deep multicultural sounds & and inner-city wilderness!
We are very excited to have two Papa Loko debuts for March; Voicedrone’s underground techno and electronica sound, filled with vintage synths, drum machines and classic effect units such as Roland’s Space Echo is gaining momentum, with his ‘Emotional Disorder EP’ catching the ears of Dixon, KiNK, Dennis DJ, Mano Le Tough and the attention of numerous UK Radio shows. His productions and sets are carefully crafted and are not short of surprises.
Tom&Jarrod are pretty new to the scene but nevertheless, they have performed their deep multicultural and house tunes both in the UK and abroad. Their spirit is in resonance with Loko and this is going to be their first London gig, something which we are very excited about!
There is hardly an introduction needed for Candi Bianca and the party’s founder Othon who will do their best to deliver the finest, deepest and most-exciting techno sounds around, Loko style.

Line Up:
Tom[&]Jarrod (11-1.00am)
Candi Bianca (1-2.30am)
Voicedrone (2.30-4.30am)
Othon (4.30-6.00am)

Heart-Chakra Focus:
The focus for March will be the conscious and collective opening of the Anahata (heart) chakra, the centre of love, inclusiveness and unity. If you would like to take this party experience to another level, just be part of this small experiment and focus on giving kindness, beauty and a smile to everyone around you during the night.The dance floor will be flooded with love and our party will be transformed to a big quantum spaceship of light!
Please note that we have extended the party for an hour and will now be finishing at 6am

***New ‘Loko Familia’ Ticket Policy Continues and Evolves for this party – Please Read This Before Coming!!!***
In our vision for a constantly evolving and utopian party experience, we have decided to give once more the possibility to those of us that cannot afford to party a chance to do it! So.. there will be an allocated number of 20 tickets in total, which will be given for free to those of you who truly can’t afford to pay the minimum £10 advance entry (or the £8 early bird). In order to make this possible and simplify things, the advance ticket price will be the same as previously (£10) until the evening of the event, but the door entry will increase from £13 to £15. So, please try to make an effort and buy your tickets from Resident Advisor if you want to buy your tickets cheaper. In case you prefer to buy your tickets on the door, you will be doing something nice by helping paying towards the tickets of those 20 boys and girls that would like to be with us but can’t afford it.

Ticket Options:
Advance: £10 (£8 Early Bird)
Door: £15
plus: 20 Allocated Tickets for Free Entry: Please message us on Facebook if you genuinely cannot afford a ticket.

2 DJ sets for the next Papa Loko – October 1

2 DJ sets for the next Papa Loko – October 1

After the last explosive June party, Loko is back on October 1st where I will be performing two DJ sets, the opening and the closing one. From press release; “As Loko founder and multi-faceted musician/DJ Othon loves to push the traditional ‘techno DJ’ envelope to the edge, we are also keen to play with form and push our own boundaries further in search of an ever greater party experience. Our aim for October is to create an innovative, seamless and unconventional 6-hour epic journey of raw power and beauty, starting off with rare and carefully selected gems of multi-cultural electronica, evolving to deeper and edgier house and tech, and climaxing with the wild & exploratory soul-shaking techno that Loko has gained its growing reputation for. Othon will initiate and close this collective journey with two 2-hour sets, while producer/DJ and much loved Loko regular Candi Bianca, will be the sound sculptor and frequency generator for the rest of the trip.
