1 amazing memory from partying in 1988/89
1 amazing memory from partying in 1988/89 Well amazingly I can remember 2 brilliant times, performing and MC-ing at Amnesia early morning in 87/88 with the sun reflecting off the mirrored pyramid, years before the roof went on with the Spanish and UK crew and in the UK sunrise was pretty special, pulling up in the dark, not knowing where we were ending up, parking the car, walking down the field and seeing thousands of people, lights, lazers nestling between the hills. I performed Everything Starts with an E and the plave went mad, I could see people I grew up with dancing from the stage, thr atmosphere was incredible, really good vibes
Why is now the time for such a party in Ibiza at Sankeys?
I was at Sankeys a few times last summer, the sound systems mental, the roof terrace is really chilled and the crowd were up for it, they put a lot of really popular, varied bass heavy nights on. A lot of tracks at the moment are sampling or emulating sounds we were discovering at the start of the scene, they’re working those different elements into original productions, so it makes sense to show the younger clubbers and producers where some of the music they listen to now derived from; its good for them to be historically aware . So many original tunes still get played and they’ve stood the test of time. Im really wary of trying to rekindle old nights and getting caught up too much in the ‘old skool’ anniversary nights, but this doesn’t feel like that. Im’ having hits now and I appreciate the past but i’m forward thinking. The solo tracks I make now, appeal to a younger crowd, as do my DJ sets and I collaborate with different younger international producers on original tracks including ones like ‘Ragga Nation’, where they’ve used my vocals from ‘…E’ that I recorded as far back as 87. The combination of past and future keeps the current scene contemporary, the party at Sankeys will keep things fresh, fluid an bring all the best combinations of everything positive from those two summers. It’s good to mix things up, that’s the way we used to party.
