Win 2 Tickets to Prototype 054: Culprit with Enzo Siragusa & Droog at Lot 613

Few artists on the global House & Techno scene have had their stock rise and rise as much over the past few years as Enzo Siragusa.

The quintessential triple threat – DJ, producer, mastermind of the Fuse brand – Enzo has joined the elite artist ranks with his Resident Advisor Top 100 entry (at #36) in 2016. It had been a culmination of years building his reputation the right way – steadily, organically, from the ground up. Enzo’s roots are firmly in London’s vibrant – and competitive – underground scene. Since their beginning in 2008, his Fuse parties became an indispensable part of the city’s nightlife landscape, spawning a highly respected record label and, eventually, conquering that most challenging of party destinations, Ibiza. With resounding stamps of approval from the likes of Loco Dice, tINI and Carl Cox, Enzo has become a true marquee name.

Three months ago, his tastemaker chops were ultimately confirmed by the invitation to contribute an installment of the legendary Essential Mix series on BBC Radio One. Enzo’s consistently credible sound resides at the nexus of Deep Techno and stripped down House, avoiding the twin trappings of cheesiness and monotony blighting dance music. Enzo Siragusa is an exciting fresh talent and Culprit & Prototype are thrilled to host his LA debut on Saturday, May 20th.

We teamed up with Prototype to give away a pair of tickets to the show. To enter, simply follow the instructions in the widget below. The winner will be selected at 11am on the day of the show.

Culprit & Innervisions Team Up For Two Shows in Los Angeles

Ame Scwarz

Everyone loves a good collaboration, and when it comes to labels working together it hardly gets better than what Los Angeles is about to witness.

The minds behind Culprit and Innnervisions have joined forces to give LA two distinctive nights of quality music, showcasing Henrik Schwarz first and Âme later with support from Culprit’s DJ collective Droog.

Set a fortnight apart, the two events will take place at Lot 613 in Downtown LA. On July 9th it will be the turn of Schwarz to bring his incredible Live set-up to the warehouse-like venue for only the second time in the past 6 years.

Then, on July 22nd, attendees will witness Kristian Beyer taking over the decks to represent the mighty Âme duo, who, along with Dixon are the founding fathers of Germany’s Innervisions imprint. His Live performance last July was one of the most memorable and energetic nights of the year, making this one of the most anticipated returns of the summer.

Culprit’s double-header for Prototype comes with unmistakeable influence on the night’s music program. As expected, the label’s own Droog trio will be providing perfect support to kick-start each night.

Tickets are available on Resident Advisor: Part 1Part 2
