Sankeys Ibiza are gearing up for their biggest season yet, and they’ve recently announced the latest addition to their weekly calendar of events – Redlight. The event will be taking place every Thursday at the club and promises to be a killer night.
Originally Thursdays were going to be called “Colors” (David Vincent’s first ever party at the Hacienda which was based on a US house and UK garage sound), but since the announcement it appears there is another night called “Colors” in San Antonio. So, to avoid any confusion, Colors Productions will now be presenting the new night under the banner, The Redlight.
The Redlight will feature appearances from some real legends… These come in the form of New York house figureheads the S-Man aka Roger Sanchez and house pioneer Todd Terry plus chart toppers Tough Love and hot underground house star, Low Steppa. Joining these household names will be the original residents Matt Jam Lamont (one of the pioneers of the UK garage scene) and Sam Holt (a long standing Defected label artist as part of the Copyright house duo) as well as the Mental Genius crew hosting the Spektrum room each week.
It doesn’t end there either! From the opening party on the 11th of June through to the closing party on the 24th of September, there will be plenty of house music stars to get excited about week in week out, with shows from Noir and Tube & Berger, four shows with Garage don DJ EZ, three with Chris Lorenzo, legendary garage star MJ Cole is in for 2 shows, Specktre‘s Tour DJ and Kiss radio host Preditah performs four shows, Wookie and many more are all scheduled to appear at what promises to be a superb weekly event.
David Vincent says, “I am so excited that I have the chance to present another one of our legendary Sankeys Soap parties to the island of Ibiza. If Tribal Sessions is my heart, then The Redlight is my soul and it will bring back my fondest memories of my earlier promoting days in a music format which I grew up to love. Working again alongside Matt ‘Jam’ Lamont & Sam Holt (my heads of music) has been a dream and I feel this sexy sleazy night (which is designed for the girls) will bring a different musical angle to the island which in my opinion has been missing since the earlier Subliminal days. This music programme that the Colors crew (including Avi Kogan) have designed will amalgamate sounds past, present and future in the US House and UK Garage sound, which will be in vogue on the white island this summer at Sankeys Ibiza”.
As Kerri Chandler once said, “All you need is a basement, a red light and a feeling… “ And that is what Redlight is all about.
