Xiorro [ALKHEMY]DJ - Travels from NYC, USA
DJ, producer and label head Xiorro outta the US is one of the brightest stars emitting from an invigorated American techno scene. A Boston-born, first generation American with Afro-Puerto Rican heritage, his moniker takes reference from the African revolutionary Marcos Xiorro.
Moving to New York in 2010, Xiorro co-founded ALKHEMY in 2016 - a collective whose genesis is dedicated to creating space and spreading diversity for the marginalised in techno - in sequence with establishing the Brooklyn-based Black Hole parties.
Between 2016-2019 Black Hole pushed a hard dance sound that culminated in the launch of Whirlwind Trax that he helped co-found with the Double Dragon EP. Now based out of the vibrant Atlanta scene, Xiorro’s ravey and brazen sound was picked up by Amelie Lens’ Exhale label, and following his European debut at Berlin techno party Staub, and Tresor’s New Faces series, Xiorro went on to become Griessmuehle’s first international resident.
Touted by DJ Mag as a one to watch, Xiorro’s DJ sets and live recordings have made their way to Boiler Room, HÖR and the DSNT Podcast, alongside gigs further afield at Basis Club in Utrecht and Copenhagen’s Ved Siden Af.
