Three of our all-time favourites come together to help us toast to 20 years in Farringdon. Our connection with each of these artists needs little highlighting – for as long as we can remember, Craig Richards, Ricardo Villalobos and Raresh have helped define our sonic identity. Richards has had a particularly profound impact on our sound – having played more than 700 Saturday nights in our space since 1999, he’s been instrumental in shaping our musical direction. Beyond his regular DJ appearances, he’s also had a hand in curating our nights, regularly helping us select the guests we invite to join him behind the decks. Perhaps the most notable of these artists was Ricardo Villalobos, who first stepped into our Room One booth alongside Richards back in 2002. He’s shared a tight relationship with us since then, showcasing his mind-bending minimalist trickery on our Martin Audio rig on a quarterly rotation for the last 17 years. Known for traversing style, era and mood without limitation, his famed Sunday morning voyages alongside Richards have gone down as some of the most memorable moments in our history. Raresh is another prized Farringdon staple. Through his regular Room One appearances – both solo and alongside his [a:pria:r] comrades – the much-loved Romanian artist has long inspired us with his minimal funk wizardry. Once schooled by Villalobos, Raresh famously earned his stripes playing extended hours parties alongside his labelmates in Bucharest, laying the foundations for a mysterious scene that’s since garnered a dedicated following across the world. This October, Richards, Villalobos and Raresh unite for a marathon Sunday session in Room One as part of our XX series. Whenever each of these DJs joins us, we’re used to a mind-bending trip taking in the best in techno, deep house and minimal, all woven together with a nimble flair few others can match. Little-known gems are highly likely; deeper than deep selections are guaranteed. We’re proud to welcome them to celebrate the last two decades with us.
