Tomorrow we party! Cafe 1001’s main room boasts a Function 1 sound system and our line up will certainly enjoy testing it. With one day to go we caught up with our Headliner to ask a few cheeky questions before he shows us why he is currently enjoying a string of bookings from London to Ibiza. Here’s what Artikal AKA Stefano Ardani had to say…Be sure to check out his latest mix at the bottom of the page on Rinse FM.
1) How were you influenced by music growing up?
Music was everywhere when I was a kid, I was influenced by rave music at the age of 11 from hearing a pals older brothers mixtape from Dance Planet and have been hooked ever since
2) What tune have you always wanted to remix?
I would love to remix an old disco track called ‘Supernature’ by Cerrone. Its such and important track to dance music
3) What have you got in the pipeline at the moment?
I have some nice parties and festivals coming up all across the UK and Ibiza. Im really looking forward to playing at Chapter, which is at Rainbow Venues and ABODE has its own festival in September. That will be a game changer.
4) If you could go back to back with any DJ in history who would it be and why?
It would have to be MR C. For me, he is one of the best house and techno selectors around and he creates magical journeys during his sets. A true master.
5) Where can people hear your stuff?
My latest mix pays homage to the London’s after hours minimal scene and all my other mixes are on my Soundcloud Artikal (Ldn)
