Offenbach’s Live at Robert Johnson is the brainchild of our good pal and dj extraordinaire Ata, co-founder of the classic Playhouse imprint (career-starter of illustrious names such as Ricardo Villalobos, Isolée, Losoul, Rework and many more) and owner of the infamous Robert Johnson label & club (where Leftorium rezzie Geoffroy Mugwump has played several times before). After the amazing “Come in my kitchen” book last year, LARJ is readying its compilation, “Lifesaver” and we’ll be feasting that event in the Main room with Ata and his longtime cohort and truly one of Germany’s biggest names, Roman Flügel (also half of Alter-Ego, co-founder of Playhouse/Ongaku/Klang and a producer/dj that transcends all electronic music styles with ease). His latest “Fatty Folders” album on Dial is still on everyone’s 2012 lists. PARTY, PARTY, PARTY ! As usual Prince Off & Geoffroy Mugwump will opening and closing proceedings.
And here’s to the Basement with Tobias Thomas’ Total Confusion as the exceptional host of Room 2 !
The Cologne clubnight, which has a strong link to the Kompakt label, has a 15 year-old history of running nights with residents Superpitcher, Michael Mayer, Tobias Thomas (and now Roosevelt) and has been the pilgramage of a truly international crowd. Tobias is the TC supremo and also curates the C/O Pop festival in Cologne, based in Cologne as well. He has already played twice for us as he also launched Leftorium in February 2011 so we’re more than excited to have this original Kompakt core-member back together with the new appointed TC resident, the electronic pop artist and dj, Roosevelt. Roosevelt is already being compared to Caribou with his fusion of chillwave, italo and pop on Greco-Roman, the label from Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard and he’s obviously a very talented dj since he’s been selected by Tobias to join the impressive list of TC residents !
Together they will control the night with a mixture of rich and intense electronic music to confuse your senses: Total Confusion !
