By Event Previews and Reviews, News

French outfit Yoyaku, known for pushing boundaries in everything they do, take a super unique trip to Bahrain, Saudi Arabia as part of their 2022 adventures. This is in collaboration with Avantgarde, a promotion which focuses on ‘curating an open space for progressive and unconventional art’. 

Taking place at the beautiful Solymar Beach Club on Friday 4th March, the event will feature a  team of artists from Yoyaku‘s exciting roster. From their studio output to their brand guidance  and the DJ sets Yoyaku comes with some serious music pedigree and the stage is set for a  surreal experience for attendees.  

Meoko is also offering a super exciting competition giveaway in partnership too, with X4  sought-after Yoyaku records up for grabs, something to look out for!  

The event will take place at 15:00 through till 2am, at the idyllic  Solymar Beach, the first and  only destination of its kind in Bahrain. It was created to amalgamate all the charisma and appeal  of the fascinating island in a venue that would embody beach life. An ode to comfort and luxury, Solymar is a spacious yet private venue that allows you to soak in the perfect environment that  is nothing short of a charming getaway right on the coast of Bahrain. 

The Yoyaku contingent have grown steadily in the past couple of years since being founded in 2015, to become key players in the minimal scene, with an inspirational and almost completely organic growth, with its record store, events, releases and a roster of staple artists in the industry, still going from strength to strength.  

Joining them will be no other than Dyed Soundorom playing from 9-11. If you know underground, then you know Dyed, Apollonia co -founder, who has earned a career as a fully fledged talent on the European dance scene. Another familiar face will be Janeret, who will take over the decks from 9-11. He is a Yoyaku regular and shining star, whether it be his productions or DJ sets. A string of Saudi Arabian DJ’s who are at the forefront and pioneers of the electronic scene in SA are expected to show off their earned place on the line up, these include Baloo who will close the night from 1-2am, Berlin based H.O.A from 8-9, Majid playing 4:30-6, who has performed with the likes of Kerry Chandler and Jamie Jones, Resolute NYC star O.BEE, playing  6-8 and Space Boi kicking off the day at 3-4:30. 

Third release tickets are available here, but are running out fast, dont miss out! Table and other booking requests to be made with Solymar Beach.
