We still couldn’t clear our heads of the past weekend when two of Berlin finest acts – Len Faki and Ellen Allien gave a proper start to Metropolis’ new party season at Universiada Hall, Sofia alongside Metropolis residents Miss Lidiya and DJ Steven. The event was another great chapter of Metropolis party history in the past few years bringing some of the biggest names from the world’s techno circuit at different venues and of course with an exceptional organisation.
As the emotional momentum was still holding us on Monday, the pioneers of the Bulgarian electronic scene revealed their upcoming December event which will be headlined by the British legend and legendary label Bedrock cofounder John Digweed who is coming back to Sofia exactly 3 years after tearing down Festivalna Hall in an amazing party night together with the ex-duo Whyt Noyz. The event will also feature special guest appearance by André Galluzzi from Cocoon’s roster.
Originally hailing from England but having clearly arrived on the global scene nearly two decades ago, Digweed has long since cemented his name in the pages of dance music history. His list of achievements is groundbreaking to say the least. Highlights would be the first proper DJ mix compilation – Renaissance in a collaboration with Sasha, being the first British DJ to hold a residency at what was then the world’s most well known club in NYC – Twilo, also with Sasha, as well as having remixed tracks by Danny Tenaglia, Underworld and New Order. As of course we are speaking of one of Bulgarians most favourite DJs we are going to keep this round-up tidy and short.
André Galluzzi has been a vinyl DJ for 25 years with residencies at legendary clubs such as Tresor, Ostgut and Berghain and releases on labels like Cadenza, Cocoon, Ostgut Ton and Highgade. As a cofounder of Taksi Records and label head of Aras we can look back at quite a history. This year Galluzzi is part of the traditional Cocoon World Tour taking place in the months ahead after Cocoon Ibiza Season Finale. So despite the tour will definitely be missed in Sofia we can have a hint of it thanks to the German who will takeover the decks in December alongside John Digweed.
Metropolis presents John Digweed, André Galluzzi & Metropolis DJs is on December 9th /Saturday/ at Inter Expo Center, Sofia, Hall 5. Limited number of early bird tickets are already on sale at Eventim, Easy Pay и Epay. More info here.
