As we approach the season of sun and dance, what better way to celebrate than to get together at the iconic Gasometer Hotel and dance all day to the grooves of one of Minimal House music’s finest; DJOKO!
Johannes Kolter, known under his alias “DJOKO“ is the latest export from Cologne, Germany. He has been steadily on the rise with his own, fresh take on underground house music in the last 5 years.
In 2016 he started the "Hoove" event to push forward thinking house music in his techno dominated hometown, showcasing a number of cutting edge artists in the scene right now. Since then many releases on substantial labels like Defected, Potobolo, Toolroom, CUFF, King Street, Love Not Money or Whoyostro, supported by the biggest names in the House and Techno industry, paving the way to a promising future.
Straight from the inner western suburbs of Melbourne, Redferrie are a 4 piece Indie Rock outfit containing Lead Singer & Guitarist Will Brien, Bassist Sani Espinosa, Lead Guitarist Lee Mitvalsky and Drummer Ruari O’Driscoll.
The band formed in late 2018 and before playing their first ever live show together, released their first single “All Stations” which helped garner some excitement of the band. After a couple of packed gigs at Footscray's Dancing Dog Cafe, Redferrie had launched themselves at the forefront of the western music scene. After heavy anticipation from fans, the group released their debut five track EP to great reception, reaching 10k streams in it's first week and developing a cult-like following around Melbourne with a completely sold out headline show which left audiences wowed by their raw and fun performance.
