Brandon Hocura & John Gómez
Brandon Edward Hocura and John Gómez are amongst our favourite dj’s out there, so we are super excited to be able to bring them togehter for this special event. They will also be using our brand new Klipsch La Scala 70th Anniversary Speakers for the first time.
Here’s some nice words Brandon wrote about his friend John:
“A few years ago I was lucky enough to get some DJ gigs over the pond. As soon as the shows were announced, John Gomez, who I only knew from lengthy Facebook chats about obscure records and even more obscure musicology books, messaged me saying that he could hook up a gig in London at this cool new venue with an enviable Klipschorn soundsystem called Brilliant Corners. He also offered to have us stay at his flat, a very generous offer considering we had never even met in person. I agreed and he sent me his university thesis to read on the plane on the way over.
When we arrived at the venue John greeted us with a great big smile and hug as if we had known each other for years, and it felt that way immediately. Some hype had built up around that gig and over the course of the night the modest venue (disguised as a sushi restaurant) became packed with people. As people finished their meals, they were politely asked to move and their tables were swept away to make more space for the crowded dance floor. Throughout the evening the owners, Amit and Aneesh, plied us with sushi, tempura and bottle after bottle of incredible wine. At the end of the night they shut the doors and we all spun around the space joyously listening to Michael Boothman’s “What You Won’t Do For Love” which had never sounded so good. Everyone had such good time that night that we did it all over again in Brilliant Corners 3 days later.
Now, John is flying all over the world, fully recognized as the heavy-weight selector and DJ that he is, and every once in a while we have the opportunity to get together to play records, dance, drink wine and if time permits, even a little digging. I cherish these auspicious occasions and always look forward to seeing my good friend. Thanks Dani and Casa Bonay for making another one of these magic nights possible!”
