Franky Wah has become one of the most visible breakout artists in the world over the last few years.
The last year has seen him launch his already widely acclaimed SHÈN Recordings label with a string of superb singles and a standout album, This is SHÈN, featuring almost 30 new tracks, a collaboration with Sasha and everything from breakbeats to progressive to vocal house all making it an impressive body of work.
The big man from Southampton knows how to cook up a storm on the biggest of stages. He is a master of the peak time techno sound thanks to his love of big drums, driving bass and raw synth textures. He is also a fine producer with plenty of hits in his arsenal.
Hot Since 82
Hailing from Yorkshire but now known around the world, Hot Since 82 is a new school house talent with many hits in his bag. He runs the Knee Deep In Sound label and always brings warmth and depth to his sets.
He isn’t called the executioner for no reason: Andy C is a DJ who has been playing his trade for decades. He knows how to mix on any format, can lock in records in an instant then set to work on layering in loops, tension, and new grooves. He can go from hard and fast to slow and deep and everything in between and is the very definition of a journeying DJ.
This local lad is sure to be on his A-game as he heads north to play on local ground. He is the Trick label head and regular in Ibiza’s finest clubs so expect only the freshest tech house.
