It is with enormous pleasure that we welcome Erol Alkan as the club’s next thirteen week resident, presenting ‘To The Rhythm’ every Friday for three months straight, starting in July.
As one of London music’s most prized assets, Alkan has uncompromisingly paved his way within the industry through, it seems, endless means and guises: Boss of the eulogized label Phantasy, coveted remixer, producer of countless critically acclaimed albums, one half of ‘Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve’, a decade long resident DJ at seminal London club night Trash, resident at Bugged Out! and now, the fifteenth XOYO resident.
In week 5 of his residency, Erol Alkan invites fellow Londoner Daniel Avery for a b2b set. Avery is best known for his innovative studio album Drone Logic (2013), released on Alkan’s own record label - Phantasy Sound. Since then, Avery has been going from strength to strength, establishing himself as a pioneering figure in house and techno. The two producers go way back, Alkan actually taught Avery how to DJ. The pair have been playing back to back sets for many years now and have had the time to create a unique on stage chemistry, XOYO is excited to welcome the duo. Supporting Alkan and Avery in the basement is fellow Phantasy Sound artist U.
Room 2 will be hosting Annabel Fraser, Manchester bound NTS resident DJ who in true NTS style is not afraid to cross genres in her exciting and eclectic sets. Get ready for a mix of techno, post punk and disco.
