Carlo Lio @ Lovefest

Toronto-based DJ and producer, Carlo Lio, is an inevitable figure in the world of finest techno music. With releases on Dubfire’s SCI-TEC and Nicole Moudaber’s MOOD, as well on his own imprint RAWtechnic he started with Nathan Barato, Carlo Lio already built up a name for himself. Drawing the influences from 80s music but also from his fellow DJs Marco Carola and Loco Dice, Carlo created his unique approach to electronic music.

At packed Fire stage of Lovefest Festival, Carlo Lio graced us with an intense and electric set. In his calm appearance behind the decks, Carlo’s ability to build up the tension speaks to his crowd. The unceasing bass kick gets softened with occasional vocals, such as Lolleata Holloway’s Love Sensation. In return, the crowd responds with absorption of each sound with effortless motion.

Known for introducing Detroit techno sound in his home country Netherlands, Steve Rachmad continuously reinvents himself in his DJ sets which showcase a wide array of different electronic music styles. Soulful sentiment that surrounds his musical performance made him one of Dutch techno veterans who enjoys respect from the whole underground electronic music scene.

During Family Piknik, which took place in Montpellier, we were fortunate to experience Steve Rachmad’s talent working perfectly with the beautiful forest surrounding. It seems easy to space out in such environment, while Steve lays down a captivating set of deep and hypnotic sounds, sometimes interfered with breezy saxophone or smooth vocals. His ability to read the crowd appears undeniable, and leaves no surprise why he is one of the world’s most renowned DJs.
