Motor City Drum Ensemble is the next XOYO Resident
Going into the fourth quarter of 2017, XOYO has announced its final resident for the 2017 series as they welcome one of the finest and most highly anticipated DJs of our time in Danilo Plessow aka Motor City Drum Ensemble (MCDE).
He will make the club his home for three months straight playing 10 consecutive Fridays from October 13th to December 15th with guest DJs throughout. With a reputation as one the underground’s most eclectic selectors, MCDE seamlessly traverses through funk, soul, house, techno, jazz and all the in between whilst managing to keep people dancing relentlessly. The technical wizardry on his original productions and remarkable remixes, omit the deep house legacy of North America infused with his penchant for jagged machine funk.
He says “Very happy to announce that from October through December, i’ll be doing a weekly residency over at XOYO in London. It’s been literally a decade since i’ve had a regular weekly spot at a club and it feels great to be back, doing what I did for most of my early career. I now have the opportunity to not only play peak time, but also the warm-up set. It’s kind of surreal and i’m forever grateful for the opportunity to see how things have changed over the course of these past years.
When I started out in the early 2000s, minimal techno was the prevailing sound of the moment and if you tried to do anything out of the ordinary, it wasn’t very rewarding – we struggled to have 50 people through the door or our parties, month after month. It seems like the acceptance for a broader musical spectrum, as well as the roots of the very thing we celebrate at parties all over the world has changed, so i’m really happy to be able to curate a residency at one of London’s clubbing institutions.” – Motor City Drum Ensemble.
