Mancunian DJ Kryder takes centre stage on Friday, in his debut headline appearance at Sankeys. Since Judge Jules picked up his K2 and helped set him on his way, the Manchester-based DJ has received acclaim and support from Tiesto, The Swedish House Mafia, Pete Tong and Calvin Harris, and has remixed for leading labels including Warner Bros, EMI, Polydor and Ministry of Sound.
Joining him will be Juan Kidd, another artist who is no stranger to the more refined edges of main room house, with releases on Subliminal, Size, Azuli and Toolroom records. Read our recent interview with Juan Kidd to find out more. The Dutch Rudder offers a hand in support for a full frontal tour de force of electro, shuffling house and techno stompers.
Saturday brings a slightly more subtle and focused approach, with Europe’s finest electronic producers from Heidi’s Jackathon.
Rapidly becoming one of the key artists for Sankeys, Heidi’s journeys through riotous house music and panoramic techno have marked her as a serious star of modern rave.
Fellow Canadian Marc Houle joins her for a live show while Sankeys’ favourite Leeds dynamo Darius Syrossian swings by for one of his resident shows, as does someone a little closer to home and the firebrand behind everything Kaluki based - Ellesse. Sankeys’ own Jozef K is also on hand to warm things up nicely.
