The epic launch party will be hosted by three leading British nights, which all have weekly residencies at Sankeys Ibiza. The Redlight, which after a hugely successful first season in Ibiza needs little introduction, will be taking over Room One of the landmark Manchester venue. Room Two will be hosted by the legendary Tribal Sessions, showcasing it’s ‘forward thinking music without prejudice policy’ and Room Three will see one of London’s hottest parties Magna Carta looking after the proceedings in a tech-house way.
We are extremely excited to announce that the two headliners for the launch of Sankeys Warehouse on the 17th of October will be none other than the pioneers of early house music, BASEMENT JAXX and ARMAND VAN HELDEN. Basement Jaxx, the Grammy award winning duo who have produced many of Britain’s most respected underground house anthems like “Fly Life” alongside crossover classics such as ‘Where’s your head at’ will be co-headlining this party with Armand Van Helden. Armand, who needs little introduction as one of the pioneers of the Speed Garage sound with tracks like ‘Professional Widow’ and classic anthems like ‘You Don’t Know Me’ has resulted in him being one of the most popular producers from the 90’s to the present day. Joining these two massive artists in The Redlight room will be Sam Divine whose remix of ‘Flowers’ by Sweet Female Attitude has been taking the dance floors by storm this summer. Sam Holt (one half of Defected production duo Copyright) also joins the party as The Redlight resident who has been making some serious waves this summer with his thunderbolt performances in the Sankeys Ibiza Basement.
The Tribal Sessions Room will feature the likes of Noir, the man behind a hugely successful and pioneering label, Noir Music and Viva Warriors Robert Dietz. Two regulars from the legendary venue DC10 also join the Tribal Sessions lineup. D’Julz, a man who has released music on some of the world’s finest labels and Clive Henry who is best known for his no-nonsense attitude to house music. Tribal Sessions Godfather Greg Vickers and prodigal son Jozef K will play back to back while Manu Gonzalez completes the lineup bringing his Balearic tech house sound to the party.
The Magna Carta Room welcomes East End Dubs, known for his influential sound focusing on drums and rolling baselines. Also on the bill is Igluu, the Magna Carta residents are firm favourites at Sankeys Ibiza. Ramon Tapia joins the bill, one of the freshest tech-house DJs around. Next up is London duo No Artificial Colours known for their distinct style. Last but not least we have Max Chapman who features on Pete Tong’s prolific BBC 1 Radio Show.
With a launch line-up that includes the world famous Sankeys Cinema & Production, we can’t wait to see what is in store for the rest of the series at Sankeys Warehouse.
