As December is here, the colder weather is beginning to settle in, and festive celebrations begin. We are under the impression Goa Club are celebrating the whole month, compiling stellar parties each every weekend. The 700 capacity club residing in the Ostiense neighbourhood in Rome, have a reputation for casting in high quality artists, putting themselves firmly at the forefront of the Italian scene since 1996.
Regular displays of electronic music on different club nights has led to the success of the club, a true variance. This December will see Touch the Wood, Nozoo, Goa Ultrabeat, Rebel Rebel and She Made all representing their own sounds and visions.
Slick groove master Fumiya Tanaka will be making an appearance on December 2nd, the Perlon star will play an extended set for Nozoo. On the 7th Planetary Assault Systems’ will be bringing his set up to Rome for Goa Ultrabeat. As far as live sets go we have not quite seen any as intense, a true representation of his legendary sound. Something that needs to be experienced. He will be joined by DJ Red (Electric Deluxe / BPitch Control) and Adiel (Ultrabeat / Danza Tribale).
A certain highlight taking place the following day is Praslesh and Giammarco Orsini. Raresh and Praslea are known for bringing the heat worldwide under their duo alias, it will be somewhat of a beautiful combination once amongst the exquisite decor of Goa. Orsini’s recent productions on Partisan and Heko are a stamp of the outstanding sounds that will be served up on the night.
Thursday 14th sees Chicago house pioneer Boo Williams make an appearance in Italy. An impressive discography with releases on Peacefrog, Cajual and Rush Hour (to name only a few) sum up how this night will be nothing short of amazing. A master class in the game. The day after this heavy night; Nina Kraviz will take control of the club alongside ZERØ at Rebel Rebel night, on 15th of December.
Vlada and She Made resident Ameliee join Partisan chief Anthea just days away from Christmas, Dec 23th. Let the Christmas dinner settle, get the gifts out of the way and get ready for Nozoo Christmas AfterTea. Heading up proceedings is Discobar’s very own Lamache, crate digger and true selector. Laurine (Slowlife) joins him for the festive extravaganza on 25th of December with Marcolino Ultrasuoni, Christopher Ledger, Alberto Gerardi, and Fabrizio Sala.
Rounding off the busy month at Goa; Ultrabeat & Rebel Rebel night will take place on Friday, 29th of December with Hunee (Rush Hour) alongside ZERØ (Rebel Rebel).
Plus many more special names on the bill, throughout December.
You do not need to let the frost get to you, call it an early Christmas treat and get flights booked up. It makes sense.
