As weeks turn into months, we wait impatiently to see what 2021 has in store for us festival fans. With EPIZODE not scheduled to take place until December of this year, it’s quite possible that we could be looking at one hell of a reunion on Vietnam’s blissful Phú Quốc island for New Year's Eve. But we still have 10 months to go and to help get you there, the festival is rolling out a new podcast.
The monthly podcast series will land on their SoundCloud and feature supreme names from their line-up. First up: Archie Hamilton, who brings his signature sound full of rolling hypnotic grooves onto the one hour show.
A world-class selector, established producer, head honcho of Moscow Records, Moss Co and Arkityp, Archie has conquered numerous global dance floors and had an impressive rise-up within the house and techno scene. He’s also a mainstay on EPIZODE's dance floor which made him a perfect pick for episode one.
Listen to the podcast below:
EPIZODE5 was originally scheduled for December of 2021 but was postponed as a result of the pandemic. The festival will now be held from December 29, 2021 to January 9, 2022.
