Losing Control w/ Z@P
For our first voyage into Boney, we are excited to announce Z@p as our master guide.
Emerging from Montevideo, Z@p sits at the vanguard of a handful of artists that have elevated the Uruguayan city to its status as one of the globe’s most exciting hotspots for forward-thinking electronic music. He has been an essential product of electronic music in the country for over a decade alongside the likes of DJ Koolt, Melina Serser, Nicolas Lutz or Omar to name a few. Growing up in Montevideo, Z@P is nowadays a fundamental member and lifelong resident at what is now one of South America’s most respected underground nightclubs - Phonotheque.
Z@p’s mastery of his craft is undeniable. His break-heavy blend of driving electro, house and techno, is delivered with unerring power and poignancy: the outcome of a sonic language that has been carefully honed for over a decade. With a momentum and quality that eclipses what most aspire to in the entirety of a career, the past three years alone have seen Z@P release knockout EPs on labels including Melliflow, Traffic, Cartilus and Cabaret and most recently My Own Jupiter.
With an innate understanding of what excites and inspires, Z@P is a DJ that consistently surprises and inspires. Balancing the considered with the spontaneous, his sets are ripe with selections that speak volumes. It comes as no surprise that Z@P has resonated with the denizens of the world’s most influential dancefloors, including Hoppetosse, Club der Visionaere, Robert Johnson, Closer and ReSolute.
Losing Control is chuffed to welcome Z@P to Melbourne for his debut Austalian tour.
On the night he will be joined by the Syrupp brains trust Chaz and Heath. They’ve thrown a number of parties together and run the Syrup podcast. Their Djing is informed by an uncompromising approach and passion for all things deep.
Tim Wigg and Luk as your Losing Control hosts.
