Lakuti & Tama Sumo
We are back with some really exciting and beautiful friends of the Family this March with the Berlin-based duo Lakuti and Tama Sumo who will be headlining another colourful bunch taking up our three dancefloors.
Having worked on the 'Bring Down the Walls' concept alongside each other in Berlin's storied Berghain's Panorama Bar, partners Lakuti and Tama Sumo have developed one of the most unique relationships behind the booth, blending everything from Detroit and Chicago sounds, to more central European tones, with tribal and percussive music also finding a home within their sets too. Since they've started playing together they have gone from strength to strength, becoming one of the most diverse, loving and interesting acts.
Lakuti is a seasoned individual in music, having been a booking agent, curator, label head and DJ for some time now. Her own label, UZURI, has been on the go for over 10 years now and has seen releases from Lerosa, Cassy, Jitterbug and many more, attracting plenty of attention from DJs, Resident Advisor and more. Having initially moved from South Africa to London some time ago, she now resides in Berlin where she has worked as a curator in the Panorama Bar. There she has found a perfect home for her blend of house, percussion, disco and soul.
Berghain regular and no stranger to Electric, Tama Sumo, is one of the most well respected names in electronic music right now. Having been a resident of Panorama Bar there since 2004, her style has aspects of house, techno and tribal making for one seamless mix which has allowed her to touch various different venues and parties and still deliver unique sounding sets.
Supporting the duo on the Rooftop is our own Padraic Disconaut, warming up the dancefloor with his blend of house and disco from one of the most well rounded music collections in the country.
In Factory we've got the pairing of DIP's Cáit Fahy alongside VSN's Shampain. Having appeared on both NTS Radio and Rinse France between them and played all across the country the intensity of Factory will make for a perfect setting for the eclectic mix of electro, techno, bass and whatever else comes to mind!
On the mainfloor we've got Paul Belton who'll be digging deep in his vast collection that we're more equipped to seeing during the week. Having made a successful debut for Family in January we're more than happy to have him back.
