2013 sees Sankeys enter the New Year with an incredible 4 month calendar ahead from January to April, with the likes of Zane Lowe, Laidback Luke, Paul Oakenfold, Paul Van Dyk, James Zabiela and Pendulum taking over the Beehive Mill venue. Not only that, but this global music and cultural institution, massively popular in the Manchester area, is launching two brand new parties; Recentes and Fiesta.
The first new night, Recentes, kicks off on Saturday 19th January and is all about fashioning forward-thinking, contemporary line-ups representing the heart of electronic music. For us, this sounds like a welcome addition to an already buzzing Manchester music scene but offering something a bit different for those wanting a more clued-up excursion to their weekends. Have a listen to Sankey’s resident Jozef K’s latest mix below to give you a taste of what bassy house/electro sounds to expect.
Recentes will feature producers and DJs who are really standing out from the rest, underground talent spanning across the deep techno to UK garage scene. With big names such as Dusky, Boddika, Shadow Child and Eliphino being just of some of the global DJs and producers aiming to bring the freshest sounds to Sankeys. Also coming up are collaborations with popular Manchester night Just Skank, who are playing host to Brookes Brothers and Funtcase with other nights in association with Take The Whole Cake and Troupe.
Following the success of Continue, Sankeys second new night Fiesta is all about great house music, showcasing iconic legends and the new breed of producers and DJs breaking through the ranks in this genre. It says it all when you see Todd Terry headlining the opening night on Saturday 26th January, and we’re looking forward to experiencing this new night for ourselves at Sankeys in the future.
These new nights are all about the variety and experiencing different music scenes and vibes going on around Manchester. We expect both to be a storming success at one of the city’s best club venues. Join in the standard #DMMDanceOff if you see us down there!
