We all love a good ol’ proper knees up, but never have we needed one more than we need one now, given the impending doom and worry of the future of the financial climate and the general uncertainty that we’re all feeling at the moment.
If Covid wasn’t enough to finish our industry off, the awful events around the world that have had a knock on effect for us all with the cost of living has taught us that sticking together and helping each other through the tough times is exactly what we need to do and what better way to do that than coming together and celebrating with the one thing we all love? Music!
We’ve carefully procured a line up that doesn’t just rotate the DJ’s that normally play these style of events but by listening to everyone in our Facebook groups and social media networks who they love the most and who they’d love to see and hear. Some are well loved legends who have played for us numerous times and some of them are arriving in Stoke on Trent for the very first time!
I think it’s hard to disagree that no artist could compete with FPI Project with regards to tracks played relentlessly at the likes of Shelley’s and raves all over the UK at the turn of the decade at the end of the 80 going into the 90s. The huge crossover hit ‘Rich in Paradise’ was not only one of clubland’s biggest hits but still is played all over the world now over 30 years later. Speaking of all over the world, huge Sasha at Shelley’s tracks such as ‘Everybody (all over the world), ‘Risky’ and ‘Let’s Go’ were some of the biggest hits to come from that Italo piano house genre that ruled the north of England in the early 90s. If that wasn’t enough, FPI were also responsible for the TC 1991, 1992 tracks that both got rinsed, all over the UK and we’re particularly massive tracks here in Stoke on Trent.
It would have been more effective to get them over for a DJ set but we wanted them to come over and perform all these hits live so we bit the bullet and they’re headlining the show for us in their Stoke on Trent debut!
As well as huge household name DJ’s such as Hacienda legend Graeme Park, Ibiza Party legend Brandon Block and some of our finest residents, it normally always circles back to Stoke on Trent’s very own Mr House music, Pete Bromley to deliver the goods, this time in all 3 rooms for the first time ever!
For those Trance lovers in K2, we’ve listened to your comments and tried to give you what you asked. The guys who’ve delivered in the past and never fail to entertain in Passion legend JFK and retro stalwart Rob Tiserra! Not only will there be some top locals delivering the goods in here but K2 will be headlined again by Stoke on Trent’s finest and most successful Trance export, Andy Moor. Andy is still playing huge gigs and festivals worldwide, showcasing his productions and labels output to the trance masses and we’re incredibly proud to call him one of our own.
The lounge that always seems to be the hub for the more discerning clubbers who prefer it a little more laid will be in for a bit of a shock this time as the lounge will be hosting a Satchmos themed event for the very first time! For those that will remember, the likes of Kelvin Andrews & Bobs Disco both played at Satchmos in its early days and their eclectic sets and all round musical diversity are still the main reasons for their popularity to this day.
Satchmos residents Pete Bromley & Matt Erst will both be showing everyone why Satchmos was so popular for so long with their sets and Satchmos custodian Andy Fryer will be joining them also.
As always, the biggest problem is avoiding any set clashes as this will once again be a night out where people travel in and make a big deal out of these special Keele parties. We’re so grateful to all our team and contributors, everyone from DJs to social media moderators and contributors, these are the events that we do for you. We can’t wait to celebrate with you all this October.
See you on the dancefloor ❤️
