On Saturday the 8th of November, The Electric Brixton will play host to a line up of epic proportion as Paco Osuna’s ‘Long Play’ Album Tour comes to London, bringing not one, but four techno stalwarts to support of Paco, who will be headlining the affair with a special 3-hour set.
Paco Osuna’s new album ‘Long Play’ is due to be released mid October and the celebratory tour that has just got underway is being brought to 18 countries, consisting of 38 gigs where Paco will showcase his new material throughout one of his exceptional performances that have been seen all summer at Enter Ibiza as well as South West Four and Sonar amongst various other places across the globe. Known for his driving techno that has made him the favourite of many who regularly attend the Thursday night at Space Ibiza, Paco Osuna’s music is afflicted with energy that refuses to subside.
Joining Paco Osuna will be four huge names from the world of underground electronic music, starting with Paul Ritch. Paul is most well known for his heavily played ‘Split The Line’ that received an awesome rework from Dubfire back in 2009, still a great track today. Since then he has continued his efforts and championed a number of high quality releases on labels like Drumcode, Play It Say It and Alma Soul amongst others. Matador is next to join the bill, another individual who has graced Enter Ibiza with his live sets a number of times this year, fusing driving bass with intergalactic sounds that seem rather otherworldly He will of course be playing live at the Long Play Album Tour in London.
Another live guest joins the bill in the form of German visionary Egbert. As an artist firmly cemented on the Cocoon roster, Egbert has engineered a large discography with highlights on Gem Records, Octopus and Mistakes Music and has tirelessly toured around Germany and Europe this year, stopping at Awakenings and a large number of German festivals. Alexi Delano, another Drumcode favourite is the final guest who brings up the rear of the line up, again a powerful producer whose EP ‘The Breeze’ on Visionquest has proved to be a late night dance floor favourite, perfect for those hands up heads down moments.
These artists will all be coming together at The Electric Brixton to celebrate the release of Paco Osuna’s long player, ‘Long Play’. Expect a whirlwind of high-octane music that will fuel your feet for a night of non-stop dancing.
