BASEMENT: Lydo / Kyruh / Daiyah / Concrete Husband
STUDIO: Massimiliano Pagliara / Tama Sumo b2b Lakuti / x3butterfly
BASEMENT resident Lydo continues their impressive run at the club. Following their appearance at WIRE Festival (playing both techno and ambient sets), they return to lay it down as only they can. Lydo’s impressive command of spacious, rumbling techno has turned a lot of heads; a confident and cool-headed presence behind the decks, they always allow themselves complete creative freedom. Kyruh comes correct. Her flamboyant, unapologetic style cannot be denied. She has a flair for the impactful and bold - a perfect fit for the room. Daiyah is a kindred spirit. The Rumble N The Ramble founder holds nothing back, pushing techno into full on seething catharsis. Though his roots are in classical music, Concrete Husband has not problem getting nasty: “Fuck me in the club / and then you fall in love” a voice intones at the opening of his hyperspeed ode to libido, “Fuck Me in the Club.” It’s not a one-off, either. “Bussy” groans with demonic licentiousness, while his remix of Fergie’s “London Bridge” descends into unnerving, bad trip claustrophobia. Crawl through the wormhole.
European royalty takes over STUDIO: Massimiliano Pagliara joins Tama Sumo and Lakuti. All three artists have been definitive voices in house over the last decade and change. Pagliara’s uniquely melodic, soaring sound melds the linear, tougher edge of techno with rich color, emotion and hypnotic swirl. His sets are truly immersive journeys that you can get lost in, with aspects that address the body, mind and heart. Tama Sumo and Lakuti bring their renowned b2b. Do we even need to explain? These two are house music legends, their sound intrinsically associated with long Saturday nights that stretch well into Sunday, the morning (or afternoon) light pouring in through the windows complimenting the audience’s own palpably joyful glow. They bring the bliss everywhere they go, but few rooms are as well-suited to their indelible sound as STUDIO. x3butterfly returns. Their indelible mix of moody breaks, thick bass workouts and effusive house affirms their personal, exploratory relationship with the dance music canon, and vision for its future.
