The latest artist in XOYO’s series of residencies is Scuba.
Although, as a press release reminds us, Scuba’s career has spanned several genres, from the dubstep of his early days to Triangulation’s Berlin-influenced greyscale to the euphoria of third album Personality, his XOYO residency is all about techno. 12 weeks of it, in fact.
“I grew up with the club scene in London but since leaving for Berlin in 2007 I’ve only played in the city two or three times per year,” Scuba tells us. “The residency appealed to me because it’s a chance to properly reconnect with the London scene, to present music that I love on a weekly basis, and to invite guests who I respect and admire.”
Scuba’s XOYO residency takes place every Saturday in January, February and March, and features appearances from Deetron, Jimmy Edgar, Nina Kraviz, Shackleton, Kenny Larkin, Veronica Vasicka and more.
“It’s called 12 Weeks Of Techno so there’s not much ambiguity about the music policy,” explains Scuba. “But techno means many different things to different people and there’s a really wide spectrum to the music. So when thinking about the guests I wanted to be as wide ranging as possible within that techno parameter and put together lineups that covered the full variety of what techno means to people.”
