XOYO RESIDENCY 2018: ARTWORK – ’13 WORKS OF ART’

At the start of 2014, XOYO launched their now lauded residency series which sees one act hold down three months of consecutive Fridays, with a selection of hand picked guests each week. Artwork will be XOYO’s next resident, presenting ’13 Works Of Art’ each Friday in January, February and March.

Having guested on seven previous XOYO residencies—he’s a DJ’s DJ through and through—the time has come for Artwork to take his well-earned place at the forefront of his very own.

A true veteran in the game, Artwork has been shaping the scene for almost three decades. The scope of his influence has gone under the radar for the majority of his career with most of his productions, whether techno, garage or dubstep, gaining huge popularity without most people knowing the artist behind the art. It took his formation of dubstep supergroup, Magnetic Man alongside Skream and Benga to garner Artwork the recognition he deserves.

His relationship with XOYO stretches back to the club’s early days when he took up residence in room 2. Since then he’s thrown a solid series of Art’s House parties each summer and even gave his expert guidance on our recent room 2 refurbishment – let’s just say, this residency has been a long time coming.

Artwork’s invited some very special DJs to join him in bringing the party each week. From old friends to bonafide legends, he offers up one of the most consistent residencies so far. Names not to be missed include: Derrick May, Omar-S, Denis Sulta, Kenny Dope, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, CC:Disco!, Grain (Artwork’s techno alias), Derrick Carter, James Hillard of Horse Meat Disco.

As is tradition, Artwork will open and close his residency by playing all night long – couldn’t think of anything better.

“I never thought i’d actually get to do this… Actually, it was the plan all along.” – Artwork
