☼ SGS | Season 4 | Episode 10 – Louie Loco Bday Event
We have reached our half way mark to the season, and cannot THANK our FAMILY and FANS enough for getting us this far. Your boundless support to our Sundays only to lead to hungover Mondays is greatly appreciated. Come join us as we celebrate RITO LOCO’s own LOUIE LOCO’s BDAY here on the terrace. He was one of the original cofounders to SGS so we thought it proper to make this party even bigger with a Double Booking for all to enjoy.
– SAEED YOUNAN the original resident returns to our ROOFTOP. A guaranteed good time, just watching and listen to Saeed work a room and build momentum. As DJ Mag puts it “Saeed Younan is one of the few DJ’s that really know how to serve it up well”. No surprise why Carl Cox picks Saeed Younan as his go to DJ, for his Las Vegas residency and has invited him back for the 2nd year to play his arena in numerous festivals.
– Along side him will be Berlin’s new sensation WANKELMUT. Who became a global star almost overnight thanks to the release of his amazing ‘One Day/Reckoning Song’ remix. His name comes from a phrase which is rather unknown outside of Germany, it is actually a way to describe Yin & Yang, black & white, up & down etc. Opposite alternatives that seem to fit his open minded character very well and also be found in the way that he as DJ likes to touch a lots of different kinds of electronic dance music.
