Loco Dice at Space January 8
With a name like Dice Corleone on his birth certificate, you know Loco Dice has to be pure gangsta. So it's kind of fitting the international techno sensation was originally a hip-hopper.
Born in Tunisia and raised in Germany, Dice started out as a rapper, playing support slots for the likes of Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, and R. Kelly before switching to four-on-the-floor electronic beats. And as an EDM producer, he adapted much of hip-hop's funked-up bravado, imbuing his productions with a floor-smashing physical intensity that made him a favorite among international techno and tech-house connoisseurs.
It also doesn't hurt that Dice's catalog includes releases on prestigious labels such as Ovum, M-nus, and Cocoon — not to mention that he commands dance floors regularly at global mega-clubs from Ibiza to Miami.
Like we said, dude's gangsta.
