We Love Sankeys opening line-up announced



As we mentioned previously We Love will be taking over each Wednesday for a 16 week run from the 17th of June through to the 30th of September, at Sankeys after 17 years at former home Space.

They have just announced their incredible opening party on the 17th of June featuring Black Butter Records artists Rudimental, bringing with them their drum and bass influenced sounds and the UK forward thinking house scene Kidnap Kid and Nvoy. Headlining the basement for the opening night will be The 2 Bears, injecting the groove onto the dancefloor, drawing upon their rich pallet to deliver sets that showcase their truly divers taste. Adding to the already packed line up is fellow London DJ and Production legend T.Williams and rounding out the line up is Kaz James, a rare breed of DJ who has balanced chart success with an undiluted love of underground club music, making him the perfect fit for We Love. Jason Bye, a We Love stalwart will be filling the resident slot.

Across the 16 week run We Love will be bringing to the island the likes of Daniel AveryDetroit Swindle, Dusky, Friend WithinAnnie Mac, Gorgon City and Huxley to deliver more of the UKs finest sun kissed sounds. Ivan Smagghe adds his Parisian flair to the booth and relative newcomer Jasper JamesJustin Robertson, Optimo, SG Lewis, Theo Kottis of Moda Black/Get Physical fame sound contrasts with Zac Samuel. Partnering with long standing club brand Bugged Out and relative new comers to the scene Eton Messy exemplifies We love’s effortless ability to maintain ties with its long standing roots yet constantly remain on the cusp of forward thinking dance music.

Darren Hughes –  ‘My answers have been this, ‘ to answer why I have decided to leave Space is like asking me why I decided to leave my family home at 17, or why I decided to approach James Barton to start Cream in 1992, or why I left Cream in 1998, or start Home at Space / We Love Space in 1999, the answer is the same, it felt like it had come to the point of change, to leave or to start, it is the same.

What We Love was at Space was a 17 year journey, one that is now behind me, however, what is in front of me is what We Love Sankeys will be, made by the people who will produce it, with myself, the people closest to the project, the artists who will play, and the people who will come to the events, this has no number attached to it, We Love will not be trying to reproduce what it was for 1, 2,3, or 10,000 people, it is a new beginning, and that is the key to what will follow. Lets find out what will be, together.”

Prepare to be surprised – taking risks to be successful…

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
