CUFF with Amine Edge & DANCE weekly + more
Thursdays 5th June - 2nd October -18 Events
The big news is that CUFF records will replace Dirtybird on the Thursdays at Sankeys.
CUFF is the hot new label from Amine Edge & DANCE. So far it has kicked off with a killer compilation of beats from new producers that all showcase this French pair’s house sound and this CUFF residency will be the first for a French artist and label for years.
Amine Edge & DANCE’s house is raw, attitude ridden music with nods to hip-hop and plenty of rapped vocals – it is a new French sound, basically, that is set to take the whole island by storm. As such expect a bling party with bold beats and plenty of cool cat characters that sees the two boss man play every week, as well as a selection of big guests that have released on the label, or fit in with their big fun and musically maverick ethos including STUFF, Sion, Shiba San, Sirus Hood, Clouded Judgment, Ennio, K-Lagane, Clyde P and The Beatangers.
David Vincent said, "CUFF could be our most significant new artist signing this summer. They have developed their own sound, which is most important thing to Sankeys when we look at a potential residency. We are really excited to work with them. They threw a party back in February which sold out in 48 hours, so they really are hot property right now and we’re really happy they are a part of the new Sankeys family in our magical 20th anniversary year".
Flying Circus with Audiofly weekly + more
Friday 11th July - 26th September - 12 Events
In the words of Audiofly themselves: “We are really happy to announce our return to Sankeys again for another season of Flying Circus on the island. The First year on the island is always a bit of a trial for a new party but we comfortably 'sailed through' and we're coming back this year with some amazing residencies from our closest friends, the best sound on the island and some new surprise guests for you all to get into.”
Saturday 7th June - 27th September - 17 Events
After hosting two sell-out shows last summer, London’s Magna Carta have been given the chance to take over weekly Saturdays from last year’s Carnival.
Based in London but tripping out to Ibiza for the summer, Magna Carta are known for bringing fresh artists to cool and random spaces with likes of Nick Curly, Marc Antona and Matthias Tanzmann in the past so expect more of the same from them at Sankeys each week this summer. It is reported that forward thinking artistes like Samu.L, East End Dubs, Jordan Peak will be spearheading the Ibiza residency at Sankeys so keep your eyes peeled.
David Vincent said “We have a lot of faith in Magna Carta and more importantly Joe Jackson as a promoter. He has a similar philosophy to us in breaking new talent. We feel Magna Carta could be the dark horse at Sankeys with some nice dark house to match”.
