It's no secret that before Loco Dice became one of the world's most revered techno selectors he was brought up on a strict diet of hip-hop.
Clearly, his appreciation of hip-hop and now grime has never gone away as he's announced a new side project, FKD, inspired by both genres.
The collaborative group has been created by Loco Dice with his longtime friends Frizzo and Kobe Hodgson, who all share a strong appreciation of hip-hop and its many forms.
Neopop returned for a 12th edition in 2017, celebrating all things techno in Viana Do Castelo near the city of Porto in northern Portugal.
Nestled between the walls of an old fort and the harbour (only a wire fence separates the toilets from a drop into the water below!), the event's two stages and capacity of between 5000-8000 people, depending on day, means it's an intimate a gathering as is possible in the current climate of massive mega-fests.
Hyte has locked in a special set from legendary selector Carl Cox to help celebrate Loco Dice's forthcoming birthday.
Taking place on Wednesday 9th August, it will be a rare opportunity to see Cox spinning at Amnesia.
The line-up also includes Loco Dice, Chris Liebing, Cuartero, Dewalta, Tobi Nueman Yaya and Caleb Calloway.
Cox, Dice and Liebing will be holding down Amnesia's iconic Terrace, whilst the rest will be playing in the Club room.
