The XTD collective launched back in 2019 when they invited Romanian kingpin Rhadoo for a nine-hour session in London’s FOLD. Inspired by the magic that occurs when artists are let loose for extended sessions, the crew welcome devoted artists to the capital for intimate and expressive sets.
After a near two-year hiatus following the UK’s lockdowns, XTD is finally back in the pristine sounding Fold venue with one of minimal’s most innovative duos: Raresh and Praslea. The [a:rpia:r] associates have been pushing the boundaries of both stripped-back dance music and collaborative back-to-back sets for many years.
Both with their own unique styles and devoted digging habits, seeing either Raresh of Praslea playing solo is always a memorable experience. Although, when the two join forces under their Praslesh alias, there is a delightful synergy that snaps into effect. Bouncing off the energy of one another, the duo transcend genres, sifting between mesmeric and uplifting house bombs and the most intricate minimal cuts keeping you hooked for hours.
Whether they are spinning a huge open air festival or keeping the after-hour moving deep into a Sunwaves session, the devotion shared between these two artists is an inspiring feat. Taking place in a similarly dedicated space, the excellent sounding FOLD is sure to bring the best out of the pair in this unique journey marking Praslesh’s only showcase at the venue this year.
Tickets will 100% sell out in advance for this long-awaited event. Raresh and Praslea are among a handful of artists whose primary craft is DJing. Earning a well-deserved, global reputation for delivering consistently high quality and engaging sets, the pairs much-in-demand craft is one of total devotion.
Upcoming London duo Timoti will provide a classy warm up the club, another pair of artists committed to their craft, regularly playing across the capital as residents for Ogenblik and Goosebumps. From 6am, the party will continue with a classic London after-hours inviting very special guests to bring in the sunrise in a secret location.
