Are you going to Sunwaves? If not… my heart aches for you. If yes, then you know you’ll be tapping your arms for some more of that oh-so-sweet loopy minimal Romanian vibe in the weeks following the festival. Thank god if you live in London, Eagervision’s got your back and is ready to pull you out of the withdrawal-induced bleakness by throwing a party loaded with rolling beats and sunny vibes at Bloc. on May 11th.
Indeed, the headliners are two Sunwaves regulars, and both will be hot on the heels of this year’s 23rd edition. There’s little need to introduce Cap, one of the most revered names amongst the cohort of Romanian DJs that the country gave us in the past decade. But despite the fact his style displays all the hallmarks we love about the Romanian sound — trippy, hypnotic melodies, impeccable mixes, driving beats — Cap is one of the genre’s few DJs able to pepper his sets with tunes encompassing a much wider spectrum, from house to electro. This versatility was manifest in his MEOKO podcast:
Javier Carballo, on the other hand, rings perhaps less of a bell than his Romanian counterpart, yet there’s a reason he’s a regular at Sunwaves: as a DJ, his style perfectly encapsulates the festival’s ethos. Javier specializes in hypnotizing, sun-drenched beats, which is a combination we’re always thirsty for. He might fly a bit under the radar to some, but Eagervision knows better and we’re delighted they bring him back on British soil with this booking.
The best of it all — as if a Romanian party in London was not enough — is that we’re holding a competition for this event, a competition that has not one but two winners. The first prize includes
– A 2-hour DJ lesson (whether you already pride yourself with your skills or are a complete newbie, know that the lesson can be for beginner or advanced),
– Javier Carballo’s recent double EP on Hector’s label Vatos Locos Silver Smile, so you’ll have something to spin for those lessons,
– And of course two entries and some Eagervision goodies, (which the other winner will also get, two entries and some Eagervision goodies.)
As usual, all you have to do to participate is email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading ’Eagervisions’. Good luck!
Join us on May 11 to fight the post-Sunwaves blues, and book your tickets already.
