The Electrik Grand opening with Lando ( Rush Hour / DE)
"Ladies & Gentleman This Saturday, June 17th,
we present to you the GRAND OPENING of THE ELECTRIK."
Last weekends soft launch quickly turned into a packed to the rafters all in rave and we expect this week to be even bigger. This week we’ve ironed out all the creases, boosted / tweaked the f#*k out of the sound system and added all the final touches to the aesthetic. We’ll be cutting the ribbon for the offical opening doors with extrodianary musical talent from Berlin,Lando
Lando (Rush Hour / DE)
Back in 2010, Lando (a.k.a. Antaeus Lando Roy) relocated to Berlin, and the city has proven to be the perfect place for the native Californian to blossom. Strains of classic house, techno, acid, and soul have always coursed through his tracks, but the German capital has allowed Lando to filter his disparate influences through a distinct lens, one that favors pulsing basslines, trippy melodies, and machine-made funk. This aesthetic carries over into his DJ sets, and explains why he's been invited to grace the decks at places like Berghain/Panorama Bar, Trouw, Fabric, Sub Club, Space, and Dimensions Festival; moreover, it's led to a residency at Berlin's storied Tresor. (It's also prompted more frequent appearances of his revamped, hardware-driven live set.)
On the release front, Lando has spent the past few years turning out increasingly impressive work for a variety of labels, including Rush Hour, Hotflush, Numbers, Icee Hot, Ultramajic, and Stillcold, and he's also been enlisted to remix the likes of Parris Mitchell, Machinedrum, Will & Ink, and Dorisburg, amongst others. Now, he's started up his own label, Myth Music, alongside fellow Berlin expat Aaron Castle (Hotflush, Boiler Room). The imprint has two EP’s of his own under it’s belt to start, along with the well received, “Dimension Sculpture EP” by Dorisburg which includes Lando’s “Freak It Mix”, a rendition that’s received much play by the likes of Ryan Elliot, DVS1, Ben Klock, and Røhdhad to name a few. Lando has a third Myth Music EP on the way, as well as two new EP’s coming soon on other highly respected labels.
