XOYO London’s now famed residency series has been a pinnacle running of parties since they first announced the project at the start of the year. Across the last 9 months three of the clubs four quarterly residents Eats Everything, The 2 Bears and Jackmaster have now completed their residencies and it is now time for the final of the year to take up arms.
The last series that took place was with Jackmaster, the Scottish selector who demonstrated his apt for musical variety with a selection of impressive events that welcomed guests of the ilk of Paul Johnson, Steffi, Kenny Dope, Moodymann and Roman Flügel amongst many others.
As we prepare to enter the colder months, XOYO’s fourth resident of the year has now been announced, and is none other than Simian Mobile Disco. The duo will descend on London to play a running of 12 Delicatessen events, performing DJ sets and one special live date that will see a performance of their new album Whorl.
Across the 12 weeks there will be an array of guests joining the pair, again from vast areas in the music spectrum. The first event in the series welcomes Space Dimension Controller, with room 2 hosting Tasker and Bradley Zero who will be playing back to back. Throughout the rest of the running there will be appearances from disco delights like The Juan Maclean and Tensnake as well as techno innovators Juan Atkins and Kevin Saunderson. Other highlights include the likes of Mark E, Ivan Smagghe, Matthew Dear, Damian Lazarus and a live performance from Mathew Jonson.
Main room antics are not the only exciting prospects that this series is bringing either, as Secret Sundaze, Watergate, Ostgut Ton, Artwork and Dixon Avenue Basement Jams all feature throughout the 12 weeks.
