Loco Dice Details
Loco Dice is widely considered to be one of the cornerstones of the electronic music community, both a lynchpin for and driving force behind house & techno music for well over a decade. Through a finely-balanced combination of breaking artists via his highly influential record label Desolat; his own accomplished production catalogue for imprints such as Minus, Cadenza,Ovum, Four:twenty and Cocoon; and his legendary DJ sets across the globe, Dice has forged a reputation that has seen him enter the small band of elite underground DJ’s.
His appeal stems from a particular skill that DJs spend a lifetime trying to hone. In Dice this is inherent. His ability to puzzle together intangible moods and tap into a crowds collective consciousness fuels his internal cinematic view of music. As the highly respected tastemakers Resident Advisor explained in their Top 100 Poll »what sets him apart isn‘t what he plays, but the way he plays«. His unique mixing style is informed by a life-long affinity with Hip-Hop culture.His time as Hip-Hop DJ reached its pinnacle in the mid-90’s when he toured with some of the genre’s leading artists. And his musical journey appears to now be coming full circle.With the likes of ICE-T recently introducing him to the stage at Movement 2012 in Detroit, or Hip-Hop bible Vibe Mag pinning him as »a most dominant dance music force, (whois) treated like royalty and respected like a God«, LocoDice’s appeal is a far-reaching as ever.
