Motor City Drum Ensemble
Room 2: KC The Funkaholic
Leroy Burgess (full live band) - On Stage 10pm
It gives us an immense amount to pleasure to announce, Danilo Plessow aka Motor City Drum Ensemble (MCDE) will be XOYO's fourth quarter resident of 2017, playing 10 consecutive Fridays from October 13th to December 15th with guest DJs throughout...
With Leroy Burgess signature warm baritone voice and tension-building keyboard riffs, Leroy Burgess contributed to the success of many different projects over more than three decades – with Black Ivory, Aleem, Fonda Rae, Intrigue and Inner Life, and as Conversion and Logg amongst other pseudonyms. Whether disco-boogie or Salsoul, the underlying ingredient is always pure soul.
Jayda G steps alongside Burgess in the basement for week 5 of MCDE's residency. She pours herself into her music, simultaneously injecting life and soul into the world through her exultant DJ sets and beatific productions. Hailing from the Canadian Riviera, she’s among a prominent crew of artists at the epicentre of a movement towards a serene and hazy take on house music.
Dutch selecter and producer, Kees Heus, better known as “KC the Funkaholic”, has been DJing since the 1980s… He also is the curator at Paradiso, the famous Amsterdam club, and the co-founder of the Kindred Spirits label. A renowned crate digger and pin point selector, you're in good hands as he takes you through the night in room 2.
