Monday – Shelter Presents The Redlight
Shelter Presents The Redlight
Sankeys are delighted to be continuing with another one of the many legendary nights that has been associated with the club over the years. Shelter will be presenting THE REDLIGHT this summer and each week will be a mouth watering selection of house and garage superstars from across the ages.
The History of THE REDLIGHT is not too dissimilar to the Colors story, another legendary night but this time at Sankeys Soap in Manchester. The club felt it was a good replacement with there being a strong bond between what the two nights stood for. THE REDLIGHT was born out of Tribal Sessions in the 2000’s and, with its US house and sexy garage vibes, it is a perfect fit for the intimate and personal Basement & LAB experience that will be on offer week in week out at Sankeys Ibiza. Legend also says it was born after a sleazy hazy visit to the red light district in Amsterdam in 2001 by some of the Sankeys Soap promoters at the time.
With this, ‘The Redlight’ looks set for a second sizzling season, after it took the island by storm on it’s debut in 2015. The weekly party, kicks off on Monday 30th May 2016, and runs for 18 consecutive dates with the God Father of UK Garage Matt Jam Lamont at the forefront of the night, the man who holds The Redlight together.
The Redlight is providing a stellar guest line up throughout the season including fast-fingered UK Garage legend DJ EZ and New York House figurehead, Todd Terry. Along with Flava D, Low Steppa, Mak & Pasteman, Melle, Purple Disco Machine, Mella D, Bareley Legal, Chris Lorenzo and more. There is no doubt that The Redlight at Sankeys Ibiza is a party that is not to be missed, bringing a new, fresh, sexy and sleazy sound to the White Isle.
Sankeys Owner David Vincent said “I am very happy with our line up this summer and I’m particularly excited to hear the new residents in the team’. Sonny Fodera, Sam Divine, Franky Rizardo, Matt Jam Lamont Alice Clark, Lisa Chadderton and Maxine Hardcastle have all been confirmed as the Sankeys Residents for the Ibiza season for 2016.
As Kerri Chandler once said, “All you need is a basement, a red light and a feeling… “ And that is what Redlight is all about.”
30th May – 25th September
