Best DJs in Rome this weekend

Did you survive San Valentine’s night? Have you gone out with the person you love (or that you are supposed to) making her/him happy promising unconditional love? Good (if you didn’t, I won’t judge)! Now better you start to think about what's on during the weekend. 

On Friday it’s just a matter of Anarchy in the Club night (Goa Club) with Rumanian false;" href="">DJ Raresh! He’s now part of the Cocoon (Sven Väth’s record label) family thanks to false;" href="">Ricardo Villalobos which appreciated his style of techno, so a good guarantee of great music.   

Unusually Saturday will be a much more interesting day of events.

Tramp’s event Urban Motel take in Rome (at Studios) two of the most important DJs in the recent years for being part of Ibiza’s Circoloco nights at DC10: false;" href="">Davide Squillace and false;" href=""> Matthias Tanzmann. The first, raised in Naples but living between Barcelona and London, recorded his house music for many interesting record labels (Sci+Tec for example). The second, from Leipzig, is famous also to be a great producer (2 record labels founded: Moon Harbour and Cargo Edition) launching many artists (the style is deep-house and deep-techno).

English DJ and producer false;" href="">Dave Clarke will perform at Ribbon Club. He performed his techno in the greatest clubs all over the world (Bugged Out, Showcase, Barghain and so on) and recorded with many ‘big’ record labels (like DJ Hell’s International Deejay Gigolo for example).  

Also coming from the UK, false;" href="">Darkstar is a band that will hypnotize you (at Lanificio159) with their alternative indie electronic music. They are touring to promote their last work (News from Nowhere) published with the famous Warp Records. 

Alternative club Brancaleone presents false;" href="">Samuel+Boostaback2back’ DJ set. Co-founders of Italian electronic band false;" href="">Subsonica -probably the most important electronic (also electro-pop) band in Italy- sometimes they perform as DJs (check also Motel Connection, another side project that came out from the same band). Great shows usually.

Italian false;" href=""> Davide Benedetti will propose his techno at Feel Unusual Club. Saying that he’s part of Luciano’s Cadenza records i think is enough to make you understand his style.  

Finally ‘Exe-cute’ event at Teatro Lo Spazio introduce false;" href="">Junior Boys (Domino Records), Canadian duo (but tonight there will be just Matt Didemus) that became popular in the last years with their indie electronic and synth-pop.   

All you need is love (and music).
