RORK (Stalwart Recordings, Paris) @ The Observatory

 A pioneer of the House scene in France and a figure that has featured on the bill of parties across the planet - RORK will be packing his deep understanding of what makes people move right into the soul of this night.

With over two decades of experience playing parties across the world, Rork’s knowledge of what makes a crowd respond, move - and take off - is deep. Rork’s area of speciality is House; the man was responsible for bringing the genre to the fore in Paris in the 90s, and his sets now include a vibrant coat of all sorts of exotic influences, from African rhythms, keys and brass sections to soul-edged groove and movement. 

As a producer and remixer, Rork has seen his releases hit all sorts of top spots in the underground circuit. Always jazzy and cut with the original essence of House: black music made for dancing long hours, his productions - such as the recent release on Serial Records “I Wanna See You Come Down” and “Hiya Kaya” on his own Stalwart records - are hypnotic, grooved-out pieces meant to prolong the pleasure of the dance floor for as long as possible.

Another legend out of the European House scene is here. We ‘wanna see you come down’.
