Papa Loko: Soul Connector

Papa Loko: Soul Connector

While still buzzing from the overwhelming bliss of the last party, we are thrilled to announce our closing summer date and our last ever outdoor event at The Cause. Once more, we will party under the sun, the shaded purple canopy, the multi-coloured eyes of God and the pale rising moon, tuning our bodies, hearts and minds to the ‘Soul Connector’ frequency that plugs into the quantum field of pure being and infinite awareness 🐍💜🐍

Othon AYA Remixes Vol. 1 no 8 on Beatport

We are no.8 on Beatport’s top Electronica Releases! 😁 I sometimes feel so insecure about the things I do… I am certainly not one that completes a project easily.. getting small confirmations like this just helps me be a little less strict towards myself and build more confidence.
Thank you for the love and support 🙏🏻
If you haven’t done so already, you may get Othon AYA Remixes here.

Othon AYA Remixes, Vol 1 to be released Thursday 23 May on Conscious Expansion

I am over the moon to announce the first release by my new label Conscious Expansion ‘Othon AYA Remixes, Vol.1’ scheduled to come out on Thursday 23 of May!

The 3-track EP will include dj remixes of some of my favourite ‘medicine’ songs by the Peruvian curandera Norma PanduroAndrés Córdoba from Colombia and Josii Yakecan from Brazil. I am extremely grateful to the the artists – and in the case of the deceased Norma Panduro, her close associate Shoemaker Alan – for allowing me to remix their songs or Icaros and for being so open and encouraging in the process. 

Since these songs are inspired by Madre Tierra, her forests and its plant medicines, we have decided to give all artist profits of the release to Amazon Watch and to TAMA CONA: the foundation run by Andrés Córdoba in Kali, bringing healing and transformational Yage (Ayahuasca) ceremonies and the spiritual traditions of the Amazon to vulnerable members of the society and young drug addicts. 

You will be able to pre-order the release on Thursday the 25th of April from Beatport

Papa Loko: Resurrection (IV Years), 4 May

Papa Loko: Resurrection (IV Years), 4 May

In May, Papa Loko will be 4 years old! I never planned or expected that I will promote parties, it was simply not on my radar. It happened just cause someone once suggested me to do a party at his tiny coffee-shop basement in Bethnal Green.. This didn’t happen but the seed was planted in my mind. As often is the case, the Cosmic Intelligence is using people and things to direct us and is up to us to follow the signs.. and I am so grateful I was given that opportunity! Since then Papa Loko has been the manifestation of constant meditation and prayer so we can do, through superior inner help, our very best to create something which is so far beyond our limited capabilities and something which would serve a greater purpose.. and it has been a journey that Gabriel Toso and I have been sharing with you all the way, as you guys so openly embraced it. May the collective materialised entity known as Papa Loko bring further blessings to our hearts and minds
