Following on from the killer Sequence & Techno Experiment party on August bank holiday, September sees another collaboration in effect - this time we're working our good friends of Locked to celebrate their 5th birthday. For this date we're bringing the cream of techno to Sankeys with headlining sets from the mighty Ben Sims, Berlin's Pacou and killer Spanish live duo Exium.
Ben Sims got his hands on his first set of decks at the age of ten... skip forward to 2009 and his profile has steadily grown in stature to become one of the UK's biggest techno exports and a much in demand producer. One of the hardest working on the international circuit, Ben has been involved in no less than nine record labels with his own productions featuring in sets by personal heroes including Jeff Mills, Rolando and Derrick May whilst attracting crossover appeal from the likes of Carl Cox. The past ten years have seen Ben constantly tour the world, taking his distinctive juggernaut style to the finest dancefloors around including Zouk (Singapore), Sonar (Barcelona), I Love Techno (Gent), Limelight (NYC) and Awakenings (Amsterdam).
We also have a live double-header on the night in the form of Pacou and Exium. Pacou is one of our favourite producers, he's recorded on some of the best labels in the world including Tresor (where he held a residency), Djax-Up-Beats, Music Man and his own Cache Records imprint that he launched in 2005. His live sets are something else, the perfect fusion of analogue and digital crossing genres and taking techno to the next level. Exium, the Spanish duo of Valentin Corujo & Hector Sandoval, are one of the finest live acts in techno. They have been responsible for some of the biggest releases of the past few years and have had their distinctive sound released through their own Nheoma label as well as the likes of Oscar Mulero's Warm Up imprint and Christian Wunsch's Tsunami Records.
We've some of Manchester's finest playing in the bar with sets from Leo and Stefano (Disco Outcasts), Tom Long and Rod Fry (Motor), Chris Massey (Gore-Tech), Tiptoe (The Techno Experiment) & Miss SaySay (In My House

Disco Outcasts welcome James Holroyd & Steve Lee to the basement for our second party on the bank holiday.
James Holroyd has always had OCD when it comes to collecting records!! To him it is a weird and wonderful world..influences to his music are insatiably searched and loved and manifest themselves in a unique sonic way.His sinewaves have led him to have a longstanding affiliation to some very successful clubs.
He has been resident DJ at the legendary BACK TO BASICS and BUGGED OUT since their inceptions.They have been going for a while now!! In fact both were started before 1994.
Basics is the longest running dance music club night in Britain and won Best Club award for 2006 in DJ Mag for its forays in the superb MYHOUSE venue.
He has also been tour DJ for the infamous CHEMICAL BROTHERS for over a decade. He is currently DJing as part of their their WE ARE THE NIGHT tour which is currently gearing up to a visit to Olympia in London(not in Beijing)...So he has plenty of places to air his vinyls
As well as his regular BASICS and BUGGEDOUT! slots he has regularly played guest slots nationwide and internationally.
North London's Steve Lee cut his DJ teeth back in 91' where he ran a backroom with regular Paul "Trouble" Anderson at the tender age of 17. Since these early days he has played across the UK, Europe & LA spinning the best in club music embracing electronica, balearic and the deeper side of house.
In addition, Steve also held down a 10 year residency at Natural Feelin' - The UK's longest serving acid jazz night and it was here he played alongside regulars such as Eddie Pillar, Froggy, Scruff and Gilles Peterson.
Still considered to be a gifted turntablist you will often hear some cheeky turntable routines in his DJ sets. Steve is just as passionate about the old-skool DJ techniques as well as embracing the new digital movement.
Nowadays, Steve runs his own fortnightly night KOLLEKTIV in Kings Cross, London. Kollektiv is home to his vintage collection, with the main focus on balearic, disco and deep house and now in it's 4th year, he still delights his hometown crowd with an ever-changing playlist.
In 2008, Steve has guested at The End, Big Chill House, Fabric, Love To Fly - East Village, LaserMagnectic's Balearic BBQ, NYE @ The Freemasons - Wandsworth and a number of private parties for the film and fashion industry. He's currently in the studio with his musical partner Andy - with an eagerly awaited album due in the Autumn, 2008.

Isn't it great that disco is in vogue again? After becoming demonised in the 70s in a violent fashion, disco seems to return every eight years or so, kicking and screaming, refusing to die. But is it a good thing disco is 'trendy' again? When people get into a frenzy to renounce all other forms of music and suddenly pledge allegiance to a groove, just to have their finger on the pulse rather than for love, it kinda sucks. And the originators who beavered away quietly and passionately when it wasn't fashionable, look on, mouths agape as the masses climb on board.
I blame the media and those pesky taste makers. When disco was declared dead by the press those scenes went back underground and wonderful things happened away from the probing glare of the media eye. My point being? Don't listen to the media! They meddle, they interfere and they get it oh so wrong. Remember 'dance music is dead' a few years back? If they say something is dead breathe life back into the rotting corpse.
If they say something is 'in' you know that means it will be dead in 3 months. Sucked dry and over exposed by the press. Save time and destroy whatever is 'in fashion' immediately. Why wait for the media to knock it down first?
Above all, do not listen to ANYTHING you read in magazines or on the internet... ANYTHING... DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS. We are not to be trusted and only want control of your tiny little minds. And while we are here, may we take a mortgage out on your souls? We hear prices are falling rapidly.
