Skydiver records returns to the Gaso after hosting DJ Sports & Central last year this time with a few of our favourite artists for a full day of vibes in the sun Saturday Feb 17th.
S.O.N.S. (S. Korea/FR) Kasper Marrot (Tandoori, Twin cities) Leo James (Body language, Berceuse Heroique) Local support announcing soon!
Firstly, French by way of Korea’s S.O.N.S! With three highly regarded records on his eponymous label, the mysterious producer’s Shibuya, Shinjuku, and Shimokitazawa One Night Stand records have traversed house, techno, breakbeat, ambient, acid & more - seemingly out of the blue. All produced with a forward thinking production style, stemming from classic sounds of each genre.
Another overseas guest that we’re very happy to have playing is Denmark’s Kasper Marrot aka Tandoori of the Twin Cities party collective and record label. Kasper’s Copenhagen parties are very highly regarded and have been praised by many touring DJs who’ve played there (often sighting the local talent of the host DJs). Also very talented in the studio and an alumni of RBMA, Kasper’s widely celebrated ‘Tandoori’s World Tour’ debut 12” for the label showed his love for percussive riddims and spice mix, while his follow up ‘Drømmen Om Ø’ 12”, melds his organic percussion with rich house textures, making Twin Cities a label to listen out for 2018.
Finally one of our favourite local producers and DJs, Leo James. Leo has forged a distinctive sound over the past few years, through his often dark and precise machine jams on his Body Language label, Neubau & Berceuse Heroique. As a DJ, Leo is extremely versatile, having toured the world extensively before calling Melbourne home and we're very excited to hear what he has in store.
Watch this space for local lineup!
