10 x 4 – Loco Dice

10 x 4 - Loco Dice Stop the press! We are very happy to have obtained a 10 x 4 with Loco Dice, one of the world’s biggest electronic music stars. Growing up in Germany with Tunisian background, Loco Dice has stayed close to his underground roots whilst maintaining a schedule that quite literally spans the globe. His DJ’ing style and timeless productions such as ‘Tight Laces’ and ‘El Gallo Negro’ have set the template for stripped back and sparse electronic funk and with his label Desolate, he has maintained a position as a global dance music ambassador for a number of years. If you are in Croatia or the UK over the coming weeks you should take the chance to see the man in action at Croatia’s Hideout Festival in June or in April at Manchester’s gargantuan Warehouse Project. In the meantime…
