Find the star-gate, open it up and time travel your way to the past, present and future for the wildest party in the galaxy.

22nd July Social Music City @ Campovolo, Reggio Emilia. Saturday 22nd Social Music City lands at Campovolo, aka Reggio Emilia airport. It’s the second time in SMS history: the first one happened one year ago. Dj’s on stage Joseph Capriati, Tale Of Us, Vaal. Now over a decade into his career as a globally touring DJ, there’s hardly an accolade Joseph Capriati hasn’t achieved. He is deservedly one of techno’s most in-demand headliners and continues to better himself as an artist, making every release and performance a special one for his fans. Rubbing shoulders with many of techno’s most skilled producers, and never one to rest on his laurels, starting a label was a natural next step for Capriati. The same ear that has kept his selection so fresh and adventurous for all these years turned to the A&R task for REDIMENSION Records. Tale Of Us is the new unique Berlin based sound scape project of Karm & Matteo Milleri: Every Thursday from June 29th till September 28th, Tale Of Us and their one-night Afterlife at Privilege Ibiza will host a wide range of the most respected and exciting DJs and live acts around, and some emerging talents. Vaal uses to conjure up the emotions that saturate her minimal style: equally human, equally electronic.
