Wednesday – Dance 88/89
Legendary promoter and Sankeys club owner David Vincent has announced that he is bringing back the Acid House and Balearic beat era with his new series of ‘Dance 88/89’ parties in both the UK and Ibiza.
Promoter David Vincent said, “Dance 88/89 is my own personal artistic project which celebrates the original music culture of classic underground Acid House, in an authentic environment. It’s aim is to put the fun back into dance music. I want to thank the Universe for allowing me to be able to tell the story of the beginning of dance music in such a magical way. I also want to thank these legendary DJs, who have put their trust in me to re-produce the golden era of dance music to the world. These DJs are members of the original Beatles of house music and my childhood heroes. This party is a celebration of the return of the true legendary music and is done with a lot of love from my part.”
With summer residents that include Ibiza icon, legend and pioneer Alfredo plus Matthew Benjamin AKA Bushwacka, who was there at the beginning of the rave and acid house explosion in the UK. These artists know exactly how to rekindle that spirit for a modern audience. Joining both Alfredo and Bushwacka this term at Sankeys Ibiza will be Danny Rampling & Nicky Holloway, both of whom kick started the British Acid House Revolution after a trip to Ibiza in 1987. Also bringing back the Balearic beat will be Graeme Park, Colin Dale, Robert Owens, Mr C, Todd Terry, Fabio & Grooverider, 808 State plus many more from the original Acid House era.
If you were there for the original acid house explosion in 88/89, you will be taken back to the time of the classic 808. If you missed this then it’s time to feel the love of the infamous Balearic ‘Summer of Love’.
