Third instalment of Ankali’s glitter filled voyage Disco Církev presents
☩ KID MACHINE ☩
Hailing from Manchester UK, Kid Machine has been producing and performing Italo influenced electro since 2007. Inspired by the music he grew up with in the 80s, he released two albums with Cyber Dance and Red Laser records and another LP on Bordello a Parigi as Marco Segreti. He’s been busy performing all across Europe for the past seven years, playing slo-mo, melodic, spaced-out epic synth chuggers and finally bringing his live set to Ankali’s dancefloor.
☩ HANK CLAP ☩
Channeling laser-beams of the 1980’s, HANK CLAP is the brains and heart behind Automaticamore, Berlin’s hottest Italo disco night. Combining relentless Hi-NRG basslines, cheesy Italo and Eurodisco delights, he’ll take you on a space ride to the mega-discos of the Italian Riviera at the height of their glory.
☩ THE DONNA SMITH EXPERIENCE ☩
Disco Cirkev’s very own, the always mysterious Donna has been working day and night in the studio that came to fruition in the form of an EP called ‘Desire’. Inspired by her ex’s cold heart, it will be released this summer on Route 8’s label This Is Our Time. Donna will be performing some of the new hits for the first time in Ankali.
☩ DJ DISCOBOLLOS ☩
DJ Discobollos started his career as a professional basketball player in one of Rome’s oldest underground basketball clubs- Quattro Basketbaloni. After a health hiccup during the finals, Discobollos spent one year in hospital learning the ins and outs of DJing to kill the time. After being released from hospital his career choices switched rapidly. With insane dribbling skills his style on DJing quickly developed into a fast paced highly technical medley of fades and cuts of the mediterranean’s finest disco.
☩ PAUL RUPOLLOS ☩
Born in the underground dance halls of New York City, part of the drag queen scene from an early age. With a huge collection of vintage drum machines, synthesisers and records, Paul usually jams out to the early morning hours, which is exactly what he will be doing in Ankali. Early resident of Studio54, you know his disco will be full of raw soul.
