“People ask what is Sankeys 3D. Well it is our 3rd year and therefore we are into the 3rd dimension of the club. Obviously we had an amazing season last year, so we need to come out this summer all guns blazing. We are again making quite a few changes around the club as we grow towards an organic development of the venue. We will be totally transforming The Box as we put in a brand new sound system designed by New York’s Anthem Productions set to blow your mind as we reconfigure the room with a 3D element. The opening parties are just the beginning of it all, but wait until you hear about the rest of the programme we have at Sankeys this summer to be announced throughout February. I am so excited that I am about to burst and want to tell you all now, but I can’t…” – David Vincent
On the back of a stunning second season last year that saw it become the go-to spot for cutting edge club sounds and raucous party vibes thanks to residencies from Enzo Siragusa’s Fuse, Solomun’s Diynamic Neon Nights, Steve Lawler’s VIVa Warriors and of course Carnival, Sankeys Ibiza returns for 2013 ripe and ready to deliver their finest summer of events to date.
Dishing up the finest shades of house, techno and electronica, proceedings will be kicked off with a double dose of opening parties in late May.
The new 2013 season of VIVa Warriors will see multi-award winning Steve Lawler further emphasize his pivotal role on the island of Ibiza over the last 15 years, where his bold musical dexterity and underground attitude is now securely installed in the Sankeys Basement ready to lead his suitably impressive array of Warriors talent.
He will be supported by Darius Syrossian who is an essential addition to the line-up, while the on-point Nina Kraviz also returns after a superb performance at last year’s closing parties. Joining them will be Mosca, Shadow Child and Waze & Odyssey, who’ll each bring their own take on house and electronica to the first opening party.
In Spektrum Troupe Records will be hosting the hotly-tipped Finnebassen who’ll be making his Sankeys Ibiza debut after being the most requested artist in a Facebook poll asking fans who should play at the opening parties. Indeed, the Norwegian’s form was too good to ignore thanks to last year’s dancefloor bombs ‘If You Only Knew’ and ‘Touching Me’. Playing alongside him is emerging DJ/producer Charlie Banks, whose pin-sharp EPs for Hypercolour and Dirty Crew Recordings belie his 19 years of age.
Day two sees the hugely anticipated return of Diynamic boss Solomun, inarguably one of the world’s hottest DJs and producers having scooped a multitude of awards. The big man has a sixth sense for bringing the party and will be getting the Sankeys basement jumping alongside fellow label mates H.O.S.H and David August.
The legendary Cajmere will also be gracing the disco with his presence, after king-hitting dancefloors during two superb performances last year, during Radio 1’s Weekend in Ibiza recorded live at the club, and part two of the classic closing party in October. Adding a more percussive shade of house to the brew is Just Be (Bushwacka!) who delivers every time he plays, while U Wanna Escape’s Luis Groove and Alex Picone join the line-up alongside the highly touted Antonio Piacquadio, a regular at Sankeys Manchester and soon to be resident of Sankeys NY, which is set to open this summer.
With the club set to formally announce its seven weekly residencies throughout February and plenty of surprises in store, Sankey Ibiza 2013 is only just warming up for what’s destined to be its biggest season to date.
Thursday 23 May - Opening Party 1: Steve Lawler, Nina Kraviz, Finnebassen, Mosca, Darius Syrossian, Shadow Child, Waze & Odyssey, Charlie Banks, Jonathan Cowan.
Friday 24 May - Opening Party 2: Solomun, H.O.S.H., David August, Cajmere, Just Be (Bushwacka!), Alex Picone, Bones, Antonio Piacquadio, Luis Groove.
