As the previous year’s happenings transmute into memory, RSO marks the start of things to come, looking ahead to a month of stimulatory augmentation.
From the afterglow of the New Year, XFORM interpolates January’s running fourfold and invites line-ups of presumed prowess. Acts such as Shlømo, CLTX, Lucia Lu, Maëlstrom, Privacy and others offer their services for 2023’s inaugural XFORM on January 7th.
Self. Control. collaborates with the Rotterdam label, Pinkman, to present a night of throbbing psychedelia on January 13th. Lena Willikens, Marsman, Kimmah and others will be central to the channelling of paradisiac energy of the night.
This is followed by a collaboration between XFORM and Bottom Topixxx who invite the likes of Lea Occhi, Ben Sims, Eclair Fifi, and Gramrcy on January 14th, who will propagate both the ROBUS and SUMME floors with sonological disruption.
On January 19th, Selected then brings Front Left Records’ Elad Magdasi to the SUMME floor alongside Kashpitzky, Caiva and Vermeer to deploy an assault of floor-rumbling beats and twisted acidic ligatures.
Tekknozid emerges with an onslaught of old-school rave sounds and bludgeoning beats on January 20th. They invite UK’s DJ Faydz and Amsterdam’s Gysèle alongside an apt team of DJ’s such as Tanith, WolleXDP and more to provide the hardcore vibe.
XFORM will then invite Jan Vercauteren, Terence Fixmer, Djedjotronic, Madwoman and many more to carry on the propulsion on January 21st.
Fyema presents a heady cocktail of Techno, Trance and House adjacent sounds on the ROBUS floor on January 27th. They employ the skills of HØLEIGH, Multifun, Aisha as well as b2b’s from ABEM and Walfroy alongside Echoes of October and Pernox to deliver this with maximum effect.
Finally, on January 28th, XFORM calls for Rhythm Section to take over the SUMME floor and showcase label affiliates, friends, and family including Shy One, Bradley Zero, MLE and Session Victim. The ROBUS floor will be cared for by Shifted, ASEC with a live set, Amoral and many more.
XFORM will continue through March 2023. The last quarter will reveal the entire ideology of the theme while wrapping up the first season.
