WORLDBEAT SESSONS PRESENTS
MICHAEL LAYCOCK (ELECTROPICAL)
DJ JULIO (HAVANA FRIDAYS)
After a summer break, Worldbeat Sessions is back on Saturday, Sept 16 at the Backstage Lounge. Join DJ Michael Laycock (Electropical) and guest DJ Julio (Havana Fridays) for a night of hip-shaking global grooves.

THE DJs
Guest DJ Julio co-produces the Havana Fridays parties at Lux Lounge. Born in Cuba and raised in a family obsessed with music and dance, Julio lived in neighbourhoods renowned for their strong traditions of Conga, Son, and Afro-Haitian rhythms. He spins an eclectic mix of dance music spanning the Caribbean, the Americas, and Africa. When he’s not on the decks, Julio is an acclaimed salsa dance instructor.

DJ Michael Laycock launched Worldbeat Sessions in March 2015 and has shared the stage with some of the city’s best selectors of global grooves (including DJs Hubbz, Bassos Rancheros, and Nils, to name just a few). In late 2014, he wrapped up a decade-long run as co-producer of Electropical, an acclaimed monthly worldbeat dance party.
