As a name in the scene Loco Dice is as big and respected as they come. Despite his success however it appears that the German remains as passionate about underground music as he ever was.
Talking to Defected ahead of the launch of his new Used and Abused night at Ibiza’s Ushuaia Tower the Desolat boss lays into the perceived faddiness of the current EDM scene and it’s mainstream popularity stating “Believe me, maybe in a year EDM is out and everyone is digging for someone else. This is why we do not belong to EDM, we have been doing our shit for 20 years and longer and it’s working. And it’s working because even if sometimes one of our people or a type of our music gets the hype, we always kill the hype by playing different or doing something else.”
Before adding “We don’t just go on the stage and want to fill people with CO2 cannons and confetti and all that shit. It’s quality in the end, without dissing any other scenes or anything like that, but with us it’s like everybody is trying to make something new.”
Is Loco Dice right? Is EDM a temporary fad on the illustrious timeline of electronic music? What we do know for sure is that he has booked a stellar set of names to play alongside him this summer including Josh Wink, Jus Ed, Jamie Jones and Richie Hawtin…
