Top 5 Sets that rocked Sandbox Festival
Sandbox Festival that sits with the Sahara on one side and the Red Sea on the other is a hedonistic paradise that is becoming harder and harder to find in Europe. Open minded and well-informed crowds mingle seamlessly with the DJ talent that comes straight from the stage to stand in front of the DJ booth to get down with the rest of the punters. We round up our 5 favourite sets from the festival.
The Northern Irish DJ who settled in Liverpool stole the show, bleeding an enchanting mix of house, acid, and wonky electro the up and coming DJ showed what all the hype was about. The DJ, who founded Deep Sea Frequency and this year was snapped up for her own productions by Hot Flush is sure to be making waves over the coming festival season. Definitely, one to keep an eye on!

The Cairo based DJ, who performed at Sandbox last year, again delivered one of the most engaging sets of the festival. As she puts it, her sound explores the vast space between house and techno, and this one proved no different. With some solid hunks of tech and deep house slabs as well as nods towards disco and more ravey numbers proving the perfect mix. Check out her ‘Unfamiliar’ club nights where she aims to champion the rising female electronic talent in Cairo

Chaos In The CBD
The brothers, who herald from New Zealand but are now essentially Peckham locals, offered an exceptional blend of deep house and disco edits which won them new fans in the Egyptian twilight. Expertly jumping between uplifting numbers that had the crowd in raptures throughout.

Australian born, London-based DJ and producer Mall Grab impressed with his typically high energy, fun-filled set. Hailing from New South Wales, Jordan Alexander enjoyed a rapid rise to recognition for his no-nonsense approach to house music and continues on a steady path to establishing himself as one of the worlds most exciting DJ’s by consistently delivering long stretching, dusty house material around the world.

Charlotte de Witte
Headlining the Main Stage on Friday night, Belgian-born rising star blew us away with her peak-time set filled with intense and uncompromising techno. The headstrong DJ gained notoriety for her aggressive and stripped-back approach to her own tracks and the adept ability to hold any crowd across the globe. Continuing in this vein, her set and Sandbox Festival is another to add to her endless list of stellar performances.
