XOYO has renovated its second room with the help of regular attendee of the venue, Artwork.
The club, which is owned by The Columbo Group, has repositioned and upgraded the PA system as well as moving the decks into a more central location. The room has also become darker and its walls have been layered with acoustic absorption foam to increase sound quality across the dancefloor.
The process was overseen by Artwork, real name Arthur Smith, who has played in XOYO's second room numerous times over the last three years. Smith remarked: "XOYO's Room 2 was shit. I made it better."
XOYO's Room 2 will now match the sparse, industrial style of its main dancefloor.
Artwork will open the room this Friday in advance of his set downstairs in XOYO's main space as part of The Black Madonna's residency. Friday's session features a set from Midland.
Director and head booker of XOYO, Andy Peyton said: "Our initial thought with room two was to have it as bar which you can dance in. As it went on we found ourselves adding more lighting to make it more clubby. We decided to take the plunge, spend the money and get the builders in to make it a great club room."
