Recording Artist / DJ Ashwin Khosa was born and raised in Hong Kong to Indian parents. Upon graduating from the University of Pennsylvania he moved to Brooklyn, NY to continue producing and performing electronic music. Now living in Berlin, he has performed around the world with residencies across the United States and Asia.
Performing alongside heavyweights including Adam Beyer, Sasha, Damian Lazarus, The Martinez Brothers at venues Verboten (NY), Provocateur, Flash (DC), Buddha Lounge, KEE Club (HK), and festivals including Mysteryland and Groove Fest (Dominican Republic). He has been named an artist to watch by global publications such as DJ MAG and India’s Platform Magazine.
His music features dynamic grooves, deep basslines and complex musicality – all bundled together by a gripping soundscape. He has numerous releases under his belt on labels including German giants Traum Schallplatten, TRAPEZ, and also techno mainstay Sian’s (Octopus Recordings) fresh label Hydrozoa. His releases have received support from DJs including Pan-‐Pot, Davide Squillace, Umek, Danny Tenaglia, and Paco Osuna. Always hungry and always busy with shows and releases, the young and energetic Ashwin Khosa is one name to watch.
Kansas-born, Philadelphia based Andre Wade, operating under the alias Maxine & Cleo came onto our radar last year when Jamie Jones dropped the title track from his debut EP "Pendgast," released on LA label Material Image. Accurately described by Halycon as "Stripped-down, rhythmic acid party jams that say "Yo, I know what the f*ck is up". Gritty, raw, fierce, perfectly unfinished house," his dark, analogue yet club friendly sound stuck fondly with us until we heard him again on his follow-up release on Steve Mizeks Argot/Tasteful Nudes imprint with last years "Mad Blanc" EP.
Continuing down his dark path on "Mad Blanc" M&C provides an A-Side full of gifts for DJs in the form of "Flynn Rhythm"'s relentlessly jacking house grooves (a personal favorite) and the blurry-eyed deep house pleasures of the title track. The B-side reveals the more fragile side of Maxine & Cleo, courting home listeners and after hours crowds on the spirit-conjuring spectral house cut "Mind Is Spinnin" and the dreamy "Proto," gliding on thrumming pads and gilded with vocal slivers.
After having the fortune of attending his co-hosted monthly party "Nightworks" and inviting him out for a Philadelphia edition of #MOVE (Social Studies), we knew that he could truly flourish with a late night set. We are lucky to have him joining us on this journey.
Residents P. S. 118 & DJ Spekz will be warming things up.
Stay tuned for additional updates.
