DT841 – Qubiko b2b Denis Ago


It’s common to see an artist that emerges from the most humble, to become someone able to revolutionize the market.  Qubiko, who was born in a small town in southern Italy, has evolved in a few years and experienced various kinds of electronic music. He grew up in a small neighbourhood where he used to listen to jazz music and drum rhythms thanks to his father, a professional saxophonist.

From a very young he was fond of music, not just electronics, any song that had harmony and rhythm made him oat. Qubiko did not stop until it reaches its goals, if you’ve heard sometimes a DJ or producer will know what I’m talking about, have produced music for labels like Edible, Toolroom, Defected, DFTD or Glitterbox, to name a few, in digital and vinyl.

His DJ sets have been done around the world, far and wide. From Flash Dc in Washington to Chroma Club in Seoul, from Egg in London to Defected Festival in Croatia, he has always stood out for his eclecticism and transversality, greatly influenced by his background with hip hop/jazz influence.

Jamie Jones’ Hottrax readies their brand-new Various Artists EP series ‘Tripleution’, set to feature long-time Hottrax affiliates and brand new artists alike, adding to a discography that already boasts the likes of Patrick Topping, East End Dubs, Yousef, and many more alongside Jamie Jones himself. Landing this September, the first part of ‘Tripleution’ features Qubiko & Denis Ago, TacoMan and Sound Process, giving an essential look into the label’s high-quality catalogue. Italian duo Qubiko & Denis Ago deliver a mixture of house and minimal styles for their cut ‘Danzer’, with deep layers of sub-bass penetrating its percussive hooks.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
