Cocoon In The Park have made a much-anticipated announcement regarding their special guest at this year’s event on the 12th July. It is with much excitement that we were told that this year’s special guest would be none other than Ricardo Villalobos.
Villalobos is no stranger to Leeds, having played a handful of times in the past few years, including at 3 previous Cocoon In The Park events, and Cocoon Leeds that took place last year at Mint Warehouse. Hailing from Chile, Ricardo Villalobos has long been one of the forefront artists on the Cocoon roster, having appeared a multitude of times during the brands yearly residencies at Amnesia, Ibiza, the most celebrated house and techno party in Ibiza’s longsome history.
Ricardo’s label Sei Es Drum has been a platform for the DJs own and favourite music, which has in the past fronted some of the freshest and most exciting artists of today including SIS, Butch and Reboot. The label was also the imprint that this year released Vilallobos’ huge Celestial Voice Remix of Mari Kvien Brunvoll’s ‘Everywhere You Go’, a track that has been supported by a vast number of selectors around the world. Those who took to Mint Warehouse on the 4th May will remember Seth Troxler dropping this absolute weapon during his afternoon performance, much to the delight of a terrace full of sun blushed revellers.
On the 12th July, Ricardo will of course be joining Papa Sven for what is promising to be another great Cocoon In The Park at Temple Newsam in Leeds. Also on the line up is Seth Troxler, French groove ambassadors Apollonia and Fuse London head Enzo Siragusa.
