Papa Loko returns at Electrowerkz with some strong new debuts by upcoming talents Téo Drean (Techno Cadeau – France) and the brand new project of Giuseppe Gallo ‘GiKoX’. Loko favourite Wandson Maxx will also be joining us, whist I will be closing the dancing circle at 4.00 to 6.00 am.
Please read the Event Text and help us to transform this night into a Night that will create a shift to us and to those around us 💜
Some weeks back, I was asked to do a ‘Voyage of Spirits’ podcast for Melody Lab on Soundcloud. It is now online and you can listen to it here
With the heat fast rising, Papa Loko’s only summer party returns with its authentic underground vibes and cutting-edge spiritual concepts; a playground for expansive techno sound and a temple for expressing free consciousness. Visit Facebook Event for more info!
Papa Loko is becoming 2!! To celebrate we have invited at Electrowerkz Fineschliff of NachtEin.TagAus from Muncih who will be joined by Tom & Jarrod after their exquisite debut at Papa Loko: Opening the Heart Chakra. And I am over the moon to be doing a 3-hour extended set once more, last time being exactly one year ago at the Apiary Studios.

See you in hyperspace!
I am thrilled to be back at Egg London on Sat 25 February, for the great party night Sabajaq, where I will be headlining room 3! Other artists include Pig&Dan, D-Unity, Vinicius Honorio, Jim Warboy and other techno & house luminaries. Hope to see some of your beautiful faces there!
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.

Get your dancing shoes out. Papa Loko is back!
After an explosive debut at its new Hackney home, Papa Loko returns to Apiary Studios for its one and only summer techno dance and for another night of unlimited potential. Following on the many instances of ‘firsts’, fateful ‘get togethers’ and ‘unlikely bondings’ experienced by some of you during the April birthday, it is our projected wish, that these events of Universal synchronicity keep happening, making Loko a true magical vehicle of an urban techno brotherhood.
For ‘In the Beginning was Sound’ we are delighted to have back tried and tested DJ favourites that carry in them the customary Loko vibe, together with the fantastic Flipside Soundsystem, that gave last party’s clean & powerful signature sound. Known for his special Sunset Beach, South Africa sets (Boiler Room, Piano Lounge etc), Damin Hansford will set the initial vibrations for the night with one of his masterfully constructed deep emotive sets. Producer and DJ Candi Bianca, who has performed alongside such artists as Petar Dundov, Ryan Davis & Dominik Eulberg, will bring her own distinct deep & moody sound as well as techno with a sharper edge. Lastly, hybrid producer/composer, DJ/performer and Loko founder Othon, will perform another one of his hold on to your seats, soul-coaster sets that have helped define the very essence of the party, right from the start.
Part 2 of my 3-hour Papa Loko set is now on Mixcloud
