Always seizing opportunities to book artists new to the States, VOLATL will host the Chicago debut of Buenos Aires producer/DJ/label-owner Dilo (aka Franco di Lorenzo) to headline its next monthly event at Sonotheque. Much like Jonas Kopp, Barem, Franco Bianco and Ernesto Ferryra, Dilo has been an integral part of the unmistakable wave of gifted electronic-music producers from Argentina who shook up the global techno scene over the last few years. Dilo first received international recognition releasing music with frequent production partner Gurtz, and later began releasing solo work and remixes for labels including Minus, Soma, Einmaleins and more. Expect a futuristic set full of dark, minimalist grooves mixed with more danceable house-oriented sounds. The event will also serve as a preview party for Klectik Recordings’ seventh release, which features a track from Dilo and Gurtz. Two of VOLATL’s residents, Klectik label boss Jason Patrick and New York favorite Connie (also remixer for Klectik 007) will perform DJ sets full of the freshest in techno and tech-house to keep you dancing all night long.
