Gordo Announces Debut TARAKA Event at London’s Studio 338. The Nicaraguan-American superproducer returns to London with his infamous event series on June 24
Having already wowed crowds around the world with stops in Washington D.C., San Francisco, Acapulco, Mykonos, and Saint Martin, TARAKA continues to prove itself as one of the most in-demand brands in today’s global club scene. With summer just around the bend, tickets will officially be on sale Tuesday 4th April, 11am – and knowing TARAKA, sold out shortly after.
Gordo has established himself and the entire TARAKA brand as one of the most exciting creative outlets in house music today. Considered one of Latin America’s most visionary clubbing exports, Gordo is now bringing his inimitable tech house sound back across the pond as he continues to drive sonic trends with releases like the recent piercing, attitude-soaked single “R U 4REAL.”
Making a case for London’s largest nightclub, Studio 338 is the perfect host for GORDO’s TARAKA, regularly welcoming over 3,000 guests. The lineup to be announced very soon will include some very special guests, GORDO guarantees UK fans a top to bottom haul of kinetic, bass-driven house beats.
Beyond numerous sold out events across the globe, Gordo’s greater vision for TARAKA has seen him open his second learning center in Guatemala this month. Named Edifico TARAKA, Gordo partnered up with non-profit organization Seeds Of Learning and funded the build and operation of the learning center, partially using funds from tickets sold for TARAKA events.
As the infamous event brand grows, Gordo will continue to support the existing learning centers while aiming to open additional centers in every Hispanic country in the world.
Diamante Anthony Blackmon has already helped to define a global musical movement. But now he’s doing it again: GORDO is a new house music alias from the artist previously known as Carnage. His quest for this new sound has led to releases such as ‘KTM’, which became an instant Top 10 hit on the Beatport Main Chart, TARAKA, which was named after his own event series, the techno-infused speaker-rattling ‘Leaving Earth’ with KAS:ST, the widely acclaimed ‘RIZZLA’, and house anthem ‘R U 4REAL’
His release “Hombres y Mujeres” alongside Colombian superstar FEID and recent Latin America tour sees GORDO’s return to his Hispanic roots. The Nicaraguan-American DJ/producer honors his heritage beyond giving back with beats though, as he’s fully committed to helping build schools and education centers in Nicaragua as well as his birth-country of Guatemala with the latest opening its doors in February 2023 in Guatemala’s Nuevo Eden.
Already having established his name among dance music enthusiasts, Diamanté solidified his name as GORDO as he broke ground with 6 production on Drake’s latest dance-infused album ‘Honestly Nevermind’, got crowned #1 producer on Billboard’s Hot 100 producers, and #1 Hispanic DJ by DJ Mag. From here it is all about making the music he wants to. No going back.
