Saturday 1st March sees Leeds based system. follow up their 6th Birthday event next month with a special party in conjunction with Loco Dice's Desolat, again returning to Mint Club for the proceedings.
Having risen to fame in a relatively short time, after only playing out for a around three years, tINI has developed into one of the pillars of Loco Dice's Desolat label. Having picked up the drums at just age 7, rhythm has been a stable of the German's life – continuing to the present day in her DJ sets which can be seen every weekend all over the globe at the likes of Panorama Bar (Berlin), Fabric (London), Melt! Festival (Leipzig), Robert Johnson (Frankfurt), Warung Beach Club (Brazil) and many more.
Joining the Artist Alife family in 2008, tINI has become one of the most in demand underground DJs on the circuit, cementing her own 'tINI & the Gang' Ibiza residency at Sirocco Beach club (formally Ushuaia) which saw appearances from the likes of Martin Buttrich, Enzo Siragusa, Bill Patrick and the second guest on system.'s 'Desolatismus' party lineup, Guti.
Having released on a plethora of labels including Wolf & Lamb, Supplement Facts, Intec, Defected Records, Crosstown Rebels and of course Desolat, Argentinian artist Guti finds his musical roots in jazz, with jazz based piano compositions still making up a considerable portion of his musical output to this day. Over the last few years it is his live electronic act however that has catapulted the South American onto everyone's must-book list with scintillating performances the world over capturing the eyes and ears of many discerning music lovers.
