Real Music. Real People. Morocco.
Moroko Loko is a party that aims to attract good people around a noble cause : FIESTA.
No pretenses, no snobbery, just music and movement: for people down to party.
Don’t dress to impress. Let your attitude speak the vibe. But please do Dress Up!
Crazy costumes and creativity highly encouraged. Bullshit off- Dancing on, is the motto.
Moroko Loko was created in 2009 in an effort to revitalize the dying underground music scene in Morocco. Amine Akesbi (Amine K) teamed up with Unes & Mar1, to gather the few dedicated
underground survivors, and create a special kind of party.
The concept has since continued to grow due to the large local demand, the wild air of the experience, and booming music at the events.
Switching between local DJs and international guests, Moroko Loko has invited international artists such as Nick Warren (Global Underground / London), Dave Seaman (Renaissance / London), Satoshi Tomiie (Saw Rec – Tokyo/NYC), Lee Burridge (All Day I Dream – London), Henry Saiz (Balance – Natura Sonoris), Bill Patrick (Visionquest – Robot NYC), Shaun Reeves (Visionquest – Circoloco), TomPooks (Kompakt – Ovum – Intec – Moovement), Nima Gorji (Welt Recording/Cecile - Ibiza), Chucky (Portugal) and also Morocco’s own famous acts like Daox, Driss Skali, Amnaye, and You Shtak!
September 2011, landed Moroko Loko in Paris for the Techno Parade to present a showcase of its resident DJ’s, and perform for over 500,000 dancing fans. In 2011 Moroko Loko also moved itself into the heart of Casablanca, solidifying a dedicated base of thousands of music addicted clubbers. In 2012, the White City welcomed performances by Nima Gorji, DJ Squall, and Matthias Meyer; and Moroccan artists returned to the Paris Techno Parade for the second time as international guests of honor to play in front of 300000 people.
Whether on rooftops, at underground clubs, at pool parties, or raves: Moroco Loko continues to extend its ideologies to the remotest places, such as 2013’s Dunes Can Dance festival in the middle of the Saharan desert itself.
And irresistibly so: the concept has bloomed and boomed abroad, so global fans can find renditions of the event in Montreal, Paris, Borocay, Toulouse, Montpelier, Tunisia, Tokyo and more coming to your city.
Love for the scene and commitment to smiling faces: are sure to keep adding global acts and global joy to this growing collective’s family.
