Following May’s inaugural shakedown, as headlined by electronic House dons Motorcitysoul and the UK’s re-edit and future Disco royalty The Revenge, the CO-OPerative is poised to get busy once more for an evening of much needed winter warmth, this time starring another Deutschland exponent, Vincenzo. Best known for his numerous original productions and remixes for scene-leading labels such as Dessous, Pokerflat, Freerange and Mobilee, he is a major talent both in the studio and the booth, moving with ease between the deeper shades of club music in a way few can.
With this Berlin resident, who has never appeared in Sydney or Australia before, locked in to play a full 5 hour set for CO-OP in one of the city’s favorite club rooms, The Civic’s Underground, dancers can expect a master class in the dark art of DJing, with Vincenzo journeying from digital Disco through pitched down House to the deepest Techno-tinged sounds and beyond. Throw in a few well deserved toilet stops for Mr Ragone (as he’s likely known to his bank manager) and the best system in Sydney and you can rest assured the headlining half of August’s proposition is in safe hands.
The party’s second room, in the form of The Civic’s Saloon Bar, will feature the full compliment of CO-OP DJs (distilled from the Better Days and A Disco Stole My Baby crews) doing their best to bring the dark, the light, the loose and the tight from their respective boxes. Throw in some underground (and underused) classics and the installation of a few choice ‘pieces’ to give the ground floor space a sonic kick in the arse and it should be, well, sweaty.
The last party sold out prior to the night so get your tickets sorted from that renowned emporium of electronic music information Resident Advisor (www.residentadvisor.net).
Whet your appetite for 5 hours of Mr Vincenzo Ragone with a few mixes courtesy of CO-OP. The first features some of our August headliner’s finest production and remix efforts, the second is a live recording fresh from last month’s Sonar festival in Barcelona & the last a live 2 hour mix for You FM in Berlin.
