Hallowed rave fort Sankeys plunges headlong into winter by way of a killer run of nights that sees the return of some club favourites as well as a shed load of mega bookings for its regular nights.
Saturday November 1st welcomes a very special return for Paul Taylor's classic house institution Retro. This Halloween special will be loaded with all the very best in piano lead classics and golden moments from house music's illustrious past, delivered by scene authority Paul Taylor (as heard in his mix below), and residents Ricky Isted, Ben Taylor and Tom Wainwright. Alexis Raphael, Vanilla Ace and Granzfeld Effect takeover Spektrum for some bang up to date, discerning club ready house.
Tribal Sessions join up with mute! once more on the 7th (find out what happened when they last teamed up here) for some heavyweight house starring Darius Syrossian, Daniel Stefanik,and more, whilst Music Is Love unleash their first date of the season on the following day with Derrick Carter at the helm, joined by Djebali, Oli Furness, and Wbeeza amongst others.
No nonsense techno is on the menu when Boddika, Marcel Fengler and Clockwork takeover the Basement for Tribal Sessions on November 14th, followed by a conglomerate of bass heads on the 15th in the shape of Jaguar Skills, Beardyman, Rich Reason, Metrodome and Jonny Dub.
Tribal Sessions invites slinky deep house pro Josh butler along on the 21st, whilst Drop The Mustard unleash their inaugural party of the season with Detroit Swindle undertaking an exclusive four hour set on the 22nd. xxxy heads up Spektrum on the same night with another extended set of free-wheeling bass music, house and techno.
Darius Syrossian will be joined by Hector Couto and Sankeys Ibiza favourite Sidney Charles for a six hour back to back (to back) session on the 28th, with Avotre boss Sante leading the charge in Spektrum.
The November parties are rounded off by another barnstorming night form the Covert crew on the 29th, who enlist the talents of Stefano Noferini, Leftwing & Kody, Cristoph and Just Jorge, with Mat.Joe, Kydus, Mike LaVercombe and Lewis Smith in charge of Spektrum. It caps off another memorable month for the club.
