When we interviewed Ársæll Þór Ingvason—AKA introbeatz—earlier this year, he was quick to give props to Paloma as “the only proper club in Reykjavík.” If you want a chance to see exactly what he meant by that, drop in tonight and tomorrow for Int0beatz’s Bumpy Sauna, a two-night event in Paloma’s basement room.
Intr0beatz is not the up-and-coming or the this-just-in DJ at the table. He’s been around the block, so to speak. From his early emergence as a member of the seminal Icelandic hip-hop group Forgotten Lores, to a solo DJ presence at Reykjavík most established night scenes, Ársæll knows how to make people move. His focus on hip-hop style beats that once spun around his name have in recent times shifted to a focus on house music, where he has (unsurprisingly) become a guru of the genre. Dip into Paloma to learn a thing or two from this wise guy. It just goes to show, you don’t have to be new to be fresh.
Intr0beatz’s Bumpy Sauna is at Paloma 3-4 September. For more information check out the Facebook event.
