XOYO has revealed its new Friday resident is Motor City Drum Ensemble.

The German selector will helm ten parties at the Shoreditch nightspot every Friday from October 13 through to December 15, inviting a string of guests to join him at each event, details of which will be revealed in early September.

Speaking about the residency, he said: "Very happy to announce that from October through December, I'll be doing a weekly residency over at XOYO in London. It's been literally a decade since I've had a regular weekly spot at a club and it feels great to be back, doing what I did for most of my early career. I now have the opportunity to not only play peak time, but also the warm-up set. It's kind of surreal and I'm forever grateful for the opportunity to see how things have changed over the course of these past years.

“When I started out in the early 2000s, minimal techno was the prevailing sound of the moment and if you tried to do anything out of the ordinary, it wasn’t very rewarding - we struggled to have 50 people through the door or our parties, month after month. It seems like the acceptance for a broader musical spectrum, as well as the roots of the very thing we celebrate at parties all over the world has changed, so i'm really happy to be able to curate a residency at one of London's clubbing institutions."
