Art of Dark return for their first party of the summer at Studio 338 with a shattering selection of internationally acclaimed artists that offer a slice of sound for everyone. The AOD aficionados have harnessed a reputation for sourcing the finest talent behind the decks, which will be put into full effect for their forthcoming music fiesta which will feature Onur Ozer, Rhadoo, Cab Drivers (Live), Francesco Del Garda, Eli Verveine, Laurine, DJ Tree & Cecilio (Slow Life), Colin Chiddle, Brawther, Evan Baggs, Herodot, Samuel Bellis and Christian AB… The party will be taking place over three floors including an open air car park, the loft and of course the terrace.
Turkey’s finest musical export, Onur Ozer has paved the way as a pioneer of minimal dance music in all of it’s purities and has defined an articulate style through his unique productions that linger differently across each listen through a range of layers and a pallet of sounds. His appearances in London are hugely anticipated, and his presence behind the decks is incredibly special. Expect nothing less than the terrace to be at boiling point when the Istanbul innovator steps up for an extended set.
Rhadoo is a master of robust and rhythmic music which is injected into his productions and performances. With such a tight and tenacious style of selecting and mixing, there are no limits to his ability, and his sets are guaranteed to take you on a winding journey through the realms of unique percussions.
In terms of DJ pairs, they don’t come much bigger than Cab Drivers. The duo from Germany have perfected their live performances with precision, proving that there are no limitations to their music which embodies live programming and deep, grooving atmospheric sounds. With a fairly under the radar status, their forthcoming set should strictly not be missed.

Francesco Del Garda completes the terrace line-up where he will be promoting quality over quantity, through another one of his spellbinding, perfectly structured sets that are more eloquent than eruptive.
In similar style, Eli Verveine is always in pure form through her sensitive, instinctive and insightful selections that take over the mind, body and soul. Laurine, DJ Tree & Cecilio will be representing Slow Life, by combining to present their own signature sounds in the car park, alongside Art of Dark’s very own Colin Chiddle, who has rapidly become one of London’s most revered resident DJ’s.
Upstairs in the loft, Brawther will be shelling out a variety of hard hitting house grenades that will explode onto the dancefloor. Through labels including My Love Is Underground and secretsundaze, he has significantly paved the way for modern producers. USA born Evan Baggs is emerging as an essential artist to keep a close eye on, especially after the success of his recent Not A Story EP on Cabaret Recordings. Defining a style of minimal dub house sprinkled with hints of UK bass, he is a unique addition to an illustrious line-up.
Romanian born Herodot is following in the footsteps of the nation’s wealth of new and emerging talent, carving his career through prolific performances at events including Sunwaves Festival. It’s always a pleasure to see him back in the capital, where his appearances are few and far between.
Samuel Bellis has become a key component to the city’s underground community, playing for a host of parties such as Keep on Going, FUSE and Undersound, as well as in the White Isle of Ibiza. Art of Dark welcome him back for another deserved and anticipated appearance, as well as Christian AB, who’s impressive style and ability surpasses his age.
