w/ Suzanne Kraft | WECHT
Saturday 15th December
Starts 23:00 // Ends 04:00
For our last party of the year we have something extra special. From L.A via Amsterdam, Suzanne Kraft, comes to lay it down in the club. Good friends, the WECHT crew, will be on hand to get the basement warmed up.
Despite having a laid-back and organic sound more informed by musical beauty than muscular groove, Suzanne Kraft has been one of the most prominent stars of the last few of years. Born Diego Herrera and raised in Los Angeles, the humidity and sun of that state looms large over his DJ and studio output.
Formally trained on saxophone, guitar, bass and keys but hypnotised by the one-man-band possibilities of producing on a computer, Herrera’s work has been at the heart of a blissed out and slow motion revolution that has brought real beauty to the dance floor.
It comes in both LP and EP format on labels like Running Back, Melody as Truth and Animals Dancing, and effortlessly ranges from absorbing ambient to deep house via colourful disco. As a DJ, he tells equally compelling tales, and can headline at places like Robert Johnson as ably as he can play six slow and subversive hours of cosmic sounds at Griessmühle’s celebrated Cocktail D’Amore in Berlin.
