Thanks to the runaway success of his heavyweight ‘OMG’ single on legendary New York house label Strictly Rhythm, Wil-liam Djoko has finally hit the dizzy heights that his talents always suggested he would.

‘OMG’ – a percussive, bass-heavy beast capable of making speaker stacks wobble – was a highlight of the Amsterdam-basedproducer’s eye-catching DJ performances throughout the summer of 2017, including a notable closing slot at Circoloco atDC10 in Ibiza. With confirmed releases on a brand new solo imprint as part of the Numbers collective and a feature on thelead release from Loco Dice’s huge Love Letters LP, the last 18 months have helped Djoko to finally fulfill his potential.

It’s a style that has seen Djoko go from resident DJ at legendary Amsterdam venue Trouw to being a regular behind the decksat highly regarded festivals and club nights around the world. Where he was once out front amongst the dancers showing hisappreciation, Djoko is now on stage, DJing alongside friends and heroes at such high profile venues and events as Concretein Paris, Warehouse Project in Manchester & the iconic Printworks in London. He holds residencies at hot Amsterdam venueShelter as well as the London’s biggest underground event promoters LWE.

Djoko’s rise through the DJ ranks has been sound tracked by a string of well received productions. Before Strictly Rhythmcame calling, he had been putting out music for almost a decade. In that time, he released singles and EPs on an impressivearray of well-regarded underground labels, including Rush Hour, Mobilee, Voyage Direct, Leftroom and Tuskegee.

These typically blurred the boundaries between house and techno, with Djoko using the opportunity to explore his love ofmuscular grooves and futurist electronics. With multiple sets on the iconic terrace for Circoloco at DC10 plus a worldwideDJ schedule, we can expect more top-drawer releases from Djoko in the months and years ahead.
