Cold nights call for warm beats!
Pacha Papa & Raghunath Khe combine their talents for an intuited joint exploration of diverse sound and rhythm. The duo have played alongside each other at many events, but for this night they will be sharing the decks throughout, moving back and forth exploring infinite inspirations and energies.
Pacha is well known for his neo-tribal bass compositions and selections, however here he will express another side of his dj persona, tapping into the 4/4 stuctures of techno, house, and all the variations of such and infusing a unique global flair. Likewise Raghunath will meet him in that place, exploring a wide range of related styles and sub-genres such as tropical house, roots garage, playa-tech and beyond. In addition, custom layers of spontaneous sound will be utilized, opening the door to a truly improvised and evolving experience.
Recognizing their role and honouring the needs of the dance-floor, the two will provide unlimited fuel for your hips and feet and keep you moving strong all evening long. It’s gonna be a divinely hot and sweaty night!
Visuals for the evening will be crafted live by the talented VJ Kashub.

He has released multiple EP’s which incorporate world tribal bass music under the feeling of NeoTribalism. Pacha Papa is sure to enliven the dance floor with his playful antics - creating a natural balance of silliness to his ritualist set.

Kashub's name stems from the tribe of his ancestry situated along what is now the Baltic Coast of Poland. The tribe, now dispersed and displaced, lived peacefully isolated amidst sand dunes and swamps along the Baltic since before the dawn of the State of the Teutonic Order some 800 years ago. VJ Kashub brings powerful visual projections to induce a spiritual scene so as to reacquaint long lost souls of his ancestry onto our dance floor.
