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.
£8 Early Bird Tickets available now from Resident Advisor
See you in hyperspace!
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.
I am very excited to announce that I will be doing my debut hybrid Live/DJ Set for the Papa Loko I Birthday: Purity on Sat 16 April and for no less than 3 hours!!! This is something I have been dying to do but proved far too complicated until only a few days ago, when I managed to sync Ableton & TRAKTOR, their controllers and my synths together. This is going to be a big trip which I hope to share with you all!
