Ricardo Villalobos performing in Frankfurt is always going to get pulses racing, but when the stars a line and he is to be taking control of the Robert Johnson sound system you know it is likely to be a Hotel Scandalös party, and that is something to get really excited about. For the uninitiated, this means Ricardo and perhaps one or two other top artists will play from midnight on the Friday night (December 14th in this case) until the party ends, which is when, well, basically when Ricardo and the crowd say so.
This time around another top selector and closely linked artist to Ricardo will be joining him the booth. Previous guests have included Dorian Paic, Vera and more recently it was Rhadoo that helped keep the party going, but this time around will see Ricardo’s old sparring partner Raresh stepping up. Now, anybody that knows the backstory to Ricardo and [a:rpia:r] you will know just how important this pairing is to modern minimal music and the current wave of Romanian star DJ’s. The early influence from the Chilean on Raresh and his peers has helped to turn a bubbling under local scene in Romania to a globally recognised scene that has more or less given birth to its own genre.
As well as all the action going on in the main room, there will also be an ambient floor, which is perfect for when you need to take some time out from the madness. Taking care of cerebral sounds will be TCB and Daniel Fort. As expected, early bird tickets have already sold out for this special party, but there will be tickets available on the door, you just need to get down there as early as you can to be in with a chance of being part of it all.
