Such is the exciting terrain underground dance music currently traverses that genre restrictions have been gleefully abandoned by many in electronic music. Magpie producers unconstrained by convention and have been picking from the wealth of beats and grooves that flirt and rove between differing soundscapes, creating new and exciting directions. This weekend sees Sankeys adopting a cartel of artists who mix this obsession with their invention, as the legendary club approaches its final run of parties before closing indefinitely over the summer after the last all day party on Monday May 6th.
Friday 19th April
Friday kicks off the weekend with a headline turn by none other than Waze & Odyssey. The duo have quickly established a reputation as exponents of only the finest garage-infused house music, bringing the classic swing of 90s New Jersey grooves with a modern twist. Whether dropping deepness for Kerri Chandler’s Madtech records or infusing R Kelly’s ‘Bump & Grind’ with a sassy rumble, the pair really knows how to work a dance-floor. Joining them will be a cluster of genre-hopping titans. London trio Dark Sky bring their adventurous sonics up to the club, fresh from recent collaboration with Ben Westbeech under his trackier pseudonym Breach. Belgian artist Locked Groove, a firm favourite on Scuba’s Hotflush imprint will also be there, and so will Voyeur, the duo who shot to prominence after remixing Bombay Bicycle Club and catching Rob da Bank’s ‘remix of the year’ accolade, also star.

Saturday 20th April
One night later and it’s more technoid bass as Continue put together a launch party for the Dimensions Festival, set to take place in Croatia this summer, with a showcase from Berlin emporium 50 Weapons. You’d expect an imprint helmed by none other than Modeselektor to straddle a flurry of differing audio capabilities, and 50 Weapons has resoundingly lived up to that title, this line-up reflecting that diversity. There on the night will be the warped, spacious and dubby sound of Shed’s techno takes centre stage bringing us the raw analogue feel of his live show to the Sankeys basement. The clunking and out there drum patterns of Clone stalwart 2562 follow that up, with artists Doc Daneeka and Benjamin Damage, famously signed up for a full album on 50 Weapons after Modeselektor’s reverence of 2012’s ‘Creeper,’ also back at the club. Continue’s architect and Sankeys resident Jozek K completes the billing.
