LIME feat. SANTOS

Jul 12

LIVE & BAR ONZIEME

The guy who rocked the Saza*e closing party is coming back to Osaka. Born in Frosinone, Italy, Santos benefited from the strong creativity of those early disco years and Chicago house. He started producing music in his bedroom but in 1992 he set up a small studio together with his friends. He made his very first record in 1994 and soon after that he was approached by the famous Mantra Vibes label. His first album R U Shakadelic came out in 2001, and rest is history: he became the world electo-breakbeat icon, started playing all around the world, from Ibiza to London, Italy to Australia and to Japan. He also started his Maskio moniker in order to express his wayward intent for house and techno and now his outputs and DJ style are more toward techno-ish but still he knows how to make the floor moving. If you are up for partying real hard, this is the one to check out for sure.

DOOR: ¥3,000/1D, WF: ¥2,500/1D.
GUEST DJ: Santos • DJs: Yashima, Hamanaka, Tetsuya.N
VJs: EYE-LINK(ZERO/WOMB), H2Kgraphics

Since then he has released a few EP from upcoming Berlin label Vakent, a few releases from Soma and also became in-demand remixer, aleady with remix works for Steve Reich, Depeche Mode, Mylo, Junior Boys, Funk D'void to name a few.
