For Lola’s Boutique opening night, Friday 24th September we have a very special guest ‘Timo Garcia’. Not only that but vocalist Amber Jolene will perform along side Timo. Support on the night comes from Paul Bradley.
Paul is one third of London’s emerging Underground House talents known as ‘S.T.Ruggs’. The House and Techno Trio are embarking on making a name for themselves upon the Underground elite and have been Djing and rocking parties since they were 15 years old. It’s only in the last year that S.T.Ruggs have started spreading their sound around the London Tech scene and have already built a solid following from likeminded House lovers with an energetic and tenacious mixing style that doesn’t give you any other option but to keep you feet moving.
Playing at venues like Pacha, Egg, Ministry of Sound, The Den,The Lightbox, Mass, Area… It has been a busy year for Paul and looks to get bigger and better.
Leeds is a familiar second home for Timo: he cut his teeth there in top music boxes like The Warehouse, The Music Factory and The Faversham at the enviably young age of 21 where his talents for reading and rocking a crowd were recognised from early on.
With records snapped up by hipster labels like Toolroom, Cr2, OM Records and Ninja Tune, it’s clear that Timo’s a man on fire. Big-ups from mega stars like Steve Lawler, Claude von Stroke, Tom Middleton, Louis Vega and Layo and Bushwacka also hammer home the point that Timo is someone you’d be a fool to ignore.
Radio 1’s dance Dons have also shown their support, labelling one of his tracks as that week’s ‘Essential New Tune’. You get the picture: Timo is one of the boys: welcomed with open arms by our culture’s elite and now a regular at haunts like London’s mighty Ministry of Sound.
It’s no surprise he’s such a regular spinner around the streets of our fair capital, Timo literally lives and breathes the place with both home and studio on Brick Lane, E1. Nestled snugly in the bosom of uber-cool dance district Shoreditch, this locality allows him to selectively absorb all the best bits of Brit culture and intuitively filter out the many passing fads in favour of the cooler zephers which bring with them musical merit and longevity in equal measure.
We all know the music now here is a bit about the man himself. Enjoy!
