Yoyaku has garnered somewhat of a cult following of late, and for good reason. The French outfit have gradually risen to the vanguard of the scene for their distinctive offering of avant-garde minimal, house, techno and electro across all facets of their impeccably curated brand.
Keeping the momentum of their last two massive outings, at Hoppetosse on the 24th of February, then at a Paris warehouse on March 2nd, Yoyaku are set to descend on London this weekend for one of the most anticipated gatherings the agency has seen.
Held on Saturday, March 30th, the London Yoyaku showcase will feature a full roster: with Cabanne, Janaret, Lamache, Lowris, Oshana, Roger Gerressen, Varhat and Zendid each bringing their unique taste and faultless technique that has helped define the Yoyaku sound. London’s Hackney Wick space, Studio 9294, will be transformed into a blank industrial canvas for the evening’s magic to unfold upon.
For those who have not yet secured their tickets, now is not the time to sleep on it. Block out your calenders, for this will be nothing short of a top-shelf weekend.

A couple weeks after a successfull Istanbul debut where Round Up collaborated with the Istanbul creative space “MU”, hosting Barac, Round Up is back in Prague joining forces with the renowned New York organization Resolute. The two promoters are landmarks for their cities underground scenes and beyond, so we expect this party to be a special one too - also considering the jaw-dropping line-up.
Three of the most wanted and best selectors around will perform at this event until early hours. The long-time queen of the scene Sonja Moonear will be headlining along the Italian selector Francesco Del Garda; you probably found yourself looking after one of the record he played in the last year. The cherry on the cake is Shonky, part of the Apollonia trio and a guaranteed party-starter. Mari.te, Bruno Curtis & Eddie Mur & Agustin Alvarez complete the line-up.
The event is celebrating the 3 years of Round Up parties at the Microna Bunker, and you can get tickets here.

Tallinn being a creative breeding ground for some of contemporary & electronic music’s finest rising stars - Welcome to Sweet Spot Festival
- Published on Tuesday, 26 March 2019 15:41
Since announcing the return of Estonia’s Sweet Spot festival back in January, our anticipation for the weekend has been steadily growing. Held in Tallinn’s The KultuuriKartel, or Creative Hubon the 28th and 29th of July, the festival offers an incredibly diverse cultural and artistic experience, curating a stellar lineup across a plethora of genres.
The festival has just unveiled the first wave of artists set to soundtrack the weekend and, as expected, they have delivered. First to be announced is Swedish singer Lykke Li, whose blend of electronic and indie pop has been well received across Europe. Additionally, Grammy Nominated Alcoe Blacc, whose instantly recognisable ‘I Need A Dollar’ topped charts worldwide, will deliver his signature smooth grooves. Joining the selection of international talent is British Indie Rockband Friendly Fires, with what will be their exclusive performance of the summer. Also hailing from the UK, are electronic duo HONNE, bringing to Yallinn their foward thinking take on R&B.
With Tallinn being a creative breeding ground for some of contemporary music’s finest rising stars, it is refreshing to see a healthy amount of Estonian talent on the lineup’s first instalment. Noëp, the alias of Andres Kõpper, will bring his stripped back mix of mix of indie, electro and pop. 6-man band Lexsoul Dancemachine will deliver their take on raw street inspired funk, while Sander Mölder will perform a live set of the sounds that earned him “Debut Album of the Year" and "Electronic Album of the Year" at the Estonian Music Awards earlier this year. Duo Púr Múdd will bring their undeniably uplifting sound, complemented nicely by the Helsinki born Onni Boi. Rounding out the initial selection of artist is Tallinn’s own Pluuto, a rapper who is elevated by his forward-thinking style.
On the whole, Sweet Spot’s curation is marked by exceptional stylistic diversity, ensuring there is always something new for audiences to be inspired by. Lovers of house and techno can expect the announcement of artists to play at the Electronic Music Stage to come in April. The curation of the stage will build on last year’s established direction, with 2018’s edition featuring International heavyweights Jeff Mills, Soichi Terada, Bullion, Honey Dijon and Ford Romeau.
The unique experience offered by the festival extends beyond its musical offering: Sweet Spot opens a creative window into a vibrant city. With a thriving culture both underground and overground, there is always something to be discovered in Tallinn. Closer to the date, we will be bringing you our recommendations, however in the meanwhile, we recommend securing your tickets at www.sweetspot.ee
