Easter has arrived and many of you will go back back home to celebrate, but many others will stay (or will come) in Rome and would like to know what’s going on. Well, I have to say that, even if it’s a vacation weekend, and usually this means that not much goes on, this incoming weekend will be full of important names in the electro/house/techno scene.
As usual, if you wanna party on Thursday you have to go to Goa’s Ultrabeat night! Tonight (introduced by DJ Red) there will be the Spanish DJ (but living in Sweden) Abdulla Rashim who will propose his mysterious and dark sound, appreciated by many artists like Beyer and Luke Slater.
Friday’s superstar is Magda performing her minimal techno at Brancaleone. This amazing polish DJ started in the Richie Hawtin M_nus Records, but now is part of the project ‘Items & Things’ with Marc Houle and Troy Pierce recently having a big success touring in South America.
You are worried because still no DJs coming from Germany playing? No worries, RebelRebel crew presents Desolat ‘Used and Abused’ night with tINI. Originally from Munich, she started to be appreciated few years ago when she went touring with Marco Carola (M_nus); now she’s part of the Desolat Records, label created by Loco Dice.
Still from north Europe (this time Wales) Jamie Jones will be playing at Goa (introduced by resident DJ Giancarlino). He was ‘DJ of the Year’ in 2011 in Resident Advisor website and he has been working with Cocoon and Get Physical record labels (now he’s producer of his own, Hot Creations).
Finally, Italian DJs Luigi Madonna and Antonio Pepe will be the hosts of Traintek night at Rashomon Club.
Again from north Europe (Sweden), Adam Beyer is the host (with Italian Davide Del Vecchio) of Ribbon Club. This lucky (he’s married with the lovely Swedish DJ Ida Engberg) and talented DJ is the founder of Drumcode Records and one of the biggest exponent of the Swedish techno scene that came out in mid ‘90s.
This time from US (Boston) the electric (and eclectic) duo Soul Clap (introduced by Silvie Loto) will perform at Goa for the ‘Anarchy in the Club’ night. Their style is difficult to categorize in one since they mix different genres (house-techno-r’n’b-funk), so better you go watch them.
Finally, an interesting alternative night will be at Rashomon Club called Upgrade: 2 rooms with several DJs performing (too many to mention them all) and visual installations.
Eat your chocolate egg but don’t forget to dance.
