Xiorro [Whirlwind Trax | Lobster Theremin | RSO]DJ - Travels from Berlin, GER
Now based in Berlin, DJ, producer and label head Xiorro out of 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, moved to New York in 2010. In 2016, he co-founded ALKHEMY and Brooklyn’s beloved party, The Black Hole, with the genesis dedicated to creating space and spreading diversity for the marginalized in techno.
Between 2016-2020, The Black Hole, pushed a hard dance sound that helped culminate the launch of a dynamic and well-rounded rave landscape in Brooklyn. It also gave birth to the collective’s label, Whirlwind Trax, which he co-founded with the Double Dragon mixtape-style EP.
Following his European debut at Tresor’s New Faces series in 2018, Xiorro went on to become Griessmuehle’s first international resident in 2019 and now has transitioned to the club’s new location, RSO, where he has again picked up his legacy.
After having his ravey and brazen sound picked up by Amelie Lens’ Exhale label in 2021, Xiorro has gone on to release his debut EPs Chromatic Meteor Shower and Enter the Zone, on Lobster Theremin in 2022. Looking ahead, Xiorro’s own Whirlwind Trax will serve as the next platform to present his upcoming work.
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.
