Dusky have been announced as the first residents for 2020 at London club, XOYO.
The duo, real names Nick Harriman and Alfie Granger-Howell, who are also from the capital, will take over from Dekmantel Soundsystem to present twelve weeks of carefully curated line-ups.
Running from January 2020 through to March, Dusky will host Rise For Love, the 25th residency the party has held since its inception.
XOYO has revealed the next residents for the upcoming residency slot.
Dekmantel Soundsystem will take over the East London club for 12 weeks this Autumn/Winter season, from the 11th October up until the 27th December.
Kicking off on Friday 11th October with Dekmantel performing all night long, joined by Kamma & Masalo, who perform B2B, and Loud-E. Throughout the rest of the month, the Dutch DJ collective will be joined by the likes of Donna Leake and Palms Trax, with Young Marco, Bufiman, Cinema Royale and Kleo all slated to perform.
The Marcus Intalex Music Foundation will host a production workshop at London club XOYO next month.
The foundation, a non-profit platform created in memory of the late drum & bass legend to support aspiring musical talent, is hosting a production masterclass in conjuction with Cailbre's XOYO residency.
Calibre has been announced as the next Friday night resident at London's XOYO.
Kicking off 5th July with all night long sets from Calibre in The Basement and Om Unit in Calibre's Dub Lab, the residency will run through to 6th September. Calibre's residency follows recent successful stints from Andy C and Bradley Zero.
“I’m just pulling onto Rye Lane,” says Bradley Zero, as he drives from his flat in Peckham to his office and studio.
“For me, Rhythm Section is about small venues outside the centre, doing things a little differently, so XOYO is a departure from the core foundational principles of the dance, but it’s not a strict end. That’s why I was careful not to make it a Rhythm Section residency”
When he first arrived, he lived in Peckham and Camden, but felt there was no real community, which is something clearly very dear to him in the way he runs his party and label. Alas, he says he is now starting to feel the losses in Peckham, with friends moving and places shutting down. “It still has its heart,” he says. “It is still the same place, but the change is palpable, and it’s hard to see where it goes next. In maybe 15 years I can’t see there would be a place for Rhythm Section.”
“There was no pressure to book a name to bring people in,” says Bradley on his hands-free phone. “People came whoever was on. We just made a vibe. It could be Pender Street Steppers one week, and me and my housemate Miles another week, but you always got the same crowd.”
“Finding new ways to transcend borders and cultures is what drives the discovery, not just doing the same thing over and over again”
Of course, Bradley is all about new music – on his label, in his DJ sets (most of the time) and on his radio shows on NTS and the In New Music We Trust residency on the BBC. But the XOYO gigs have seen him play differently to normal, while giving a bigger platform to many of the fledgling artists he is so invested in.
Derrick Carter will play four consecutive Saturdays at London's XOYO in May.
Carter will take over the club's Pleasurehood series with the help of some friends, including Honey Dijon on the opening night of May 4th and Michael Serafini on the closing night of May 25th. Serafini will join him as he brings the Queen! party that he runs at Chicago club smartbar to XOYO for one night only.
On May 11th, Carter will play all night long while the following week, he will dig deep into his disco records for the full night.
Rhythm Section founder, NTS resident and BBC Radio 1 regular Bradley Zero has announced a 12 week residency at London’s XOYO.

Andy C has been locked to return for his second residency at XOYO London. He's the first artist to be invited back to helm the club’s much-loved residency series.
The drum & bass DJ’s second stint at XOYO will run on Fridays for 13 weeks from 4th January until 29th March 2019, with the full line-up to be announced this Thursday, 29th November.
