After what seems like an eternity I can finally announce that Kings of Tomorrow (Sandy Rivera and Julia Mcknight) will be jetting in for the launch of Find Yourself to perform their iconic track 'Finally' and many more.
Back in 2001, Defected Records released a record which would go on to become arguably the most iconic house track of all time. Under the guise of Kings Of Tomorrow, Sandy Rivera brought in the vocal talents of Julie McKnight and created a timeless anthem.
Despite the huge success of ‘Finally’ Sandy and Julie have never performed together…until now. Sheffield are you ready?
The 2nd headliner will be one of the Godfathers of House Sir Todd Terry.
Todd Terry was influential in moving house music beyond the early Chicago house sound of 1984–86. He crossed the sounds of house with hip hop breaks to create a more energized and popular sound that was able to reach commercial success outside the underground house scene.
Much of Terry's early work in the late 1980s is considered a milestone in the development of house and rave music. He was responsible for releasing two of the house era's most respected crossover remixes:'I'll House You' by the Jungle Brothers (late 1988) and 'Missing' by Everything but the Girl as a re-release in October 1995. His music was a driving force within the 'acid house' scene in the UK with many tracks such as 'Back to the Beat', 'Can You Party', 'A Day in the Life', 'Weekend', 'Party People', 'Yeah, Buddy' and 'Dreams of Santa-Anna', released under multiple aliases including The Todd Terry Project, Royal House, Black Riot, Swan Lake and Orange Lemon. In the summer of 1988 at the peak of the UK acid house movement, 'Can You Party' under his Royal House moniker reached No. 14 in the UK.
Terry's tracks in the mid-1990s include 'Something Goin' On' and 'Keep on Jumpin'', which were UK top-ten hits, with the vocals on both provided by Jocelyn Brown and Martha Wash.
Freestyle diva Shannon was the featured vocalist on the UK top 20 hit 'It's Over Love' in 1997, which topped the Billboard Dance/Club Play Songs chart in the US, as did 'Just Wanna Dance / Weekend'. An album, Ready for a New Day, was also released in 1997, featuring 'Something Goin' On', 'Keep on Jumpin'' and 'It's Over Love'. It reached No. 84 on the UK Albums Chart.
He remixed 'Stranger in Moscow' for Michael Jackson in 1996.
In 1999, Terry released Resolutions on Astralwerks Records, which successfully embraced the then still-avant-garde drum 'n' bass aesthetic. He mixed on the albums One Half of a Whole Decade and Live & Remastered.
Throughout his career, Terry has used several aliases such as Hardhouse, Swan Lake, Orange Lemon, Royal House, and Black Riot. As Black Riot, 'Warlock/A Day in the Life' was released as a single on the Champion label and entered the UK Singles Chart on 3 December 1988, reaching a high of number 68.
He recorded as CLS, Masters at Work (with Kenny 'Dope' Gonzalez and 'Little' Louie Vega), Dredd Stock, House of Gypsies, Limelife, Hard House, Tyme Forse, and the Gypsymen (where under that alias, scored a number-one Billboard Hot Dance/Club play hit in 1992 with 'Hear the Music').
