William Djoko will launch his new DJOKO imprint this Friday 22nd February with the release of his ‘Whiplash’ EP.
The Amsterdam-based DJ/producer, former Trouw resident and Ibiza regular follows a busy 2018 with a new four track EP of bass-heavy house, jubilant disco nods and rattling percussion. Following a collaboration with Loco Dice and a remix for Cassius last year, these new cuts present Djoko at his most urgent and individual.
Every Friday, we invite some of the world’s best DJs to our London offices for a #DJMAGHQ live stream to our Facebook and Youtube pages.
We are delighted to welcome Andres Campo to takeover our #DJMagHQ.
1001Tracklists has compiled its data from 2018 to chart the most played dance tracks of the year.
The user-powered platform gathered the info from 36,000 tracklists uploaded to the site throughout the year and has presented the results in a chart they’ve called ‘A State Of Dance Music 2018’.
Carl Cox has shared his b2b set with Joseph Capriati from Burning Man.
It's the first time ever Neapolitan techno don Capriati has hit the festival, which takes place at Black Rock City, in the midst of the Nevada Desert.
Both men are known for their lengthy spells in the booth— Capriati once span for 25 hours straight in Miami, and Cox's 2016 closing of Space in Ibiza is a ten hour thing of legend. This may not reach those epic proportions but nevertheless the pair, who are no strangers to teaming up, go at it for almost three hours.
The kick-drum drops out, reach towards the ceiling, the air is filled with whoops and whistles. Then a long whoosh of white noise simultaneously builds the tension whilst signalling the fact that the kick and b-line are about to drop. When they do, everyone is briefly animated for a minute, but then the energy in the room starts to flag — but don’t worry, because they’ll be another near-identical breakdown in about thirty seconds where we can all do it again.
Back in April, we caught up with Amsterdam-based duo Black Girl / White Girl to talk about their recent release on Green Velvet’s Relief label. As they delivered an infectious, dancefloor ready mix for our Fresh Kicks series, they made sure that we knew that they were “up to something” and that more new music was on the way.
