Over the Christmas period when family spirit is stronger than ever, we at Calypso thought what better time to shine the limelight on our ever-faithful residents and local artists at the same time as joining up with our good friends at The Bunker for one massive Boxing Day special…
It’s been an unbelievable year for us, having had numerous sold out parties with various headliners including Solardo, Jacky and Jimmy Switch and co-hosting the Erick Morillo event, likewise The Bunker have put themselves firmly on the map this year with top quality events down in Derby with guest appearances from Latmun, GW Harrison and Cera Alba to name but a few.
The two of us come together on Boxing Day in the Fibbers main room putting a few residents each on display – From The Bunker we have Addy Elson who is quickly making a name for himself in the midlands as a very unique and talented warm up DJ, having cemented himself as a resident at The Bunker and played for various other events and radio shows, and then we have Mr Bunker himself, Ashley Fearn. As one of the owners and founders of the brand he has organised and played at every Bunker event, along with guest appearances at events including the widely successful Forbidden Forest, along with playing at some of the UK’s finest venues such as VOID in Birmingham and XOYO in London. If anyone was at Reach Festival this year and saw these two play together you would understand our excitement to bring them to Calypso!
Representing Calypso, we have our newest residents Del-30 making their York debut! We could not be more excited about these lads, having already had some massive releases supported by Eats Everything and Patrick Topping to name a couple, and they are firm favourites of the Manchester boys, Solardo. Expect high energy floor-filling tech house from the get go when they take over the reins! Next up, we have York’s very own Joe Friend. As you all know, we like to incorporate some techno into the mix when the night draws on, and no one can deliver it better than Joe. Finally, playing for the second time at Calypso we have co-owner and founder, Sami Guizani.
In Room 2, we are delivering an alternative to tech in the form of Ibiza House Classics! Taking charge of room 2 will be Sean Davies who is without doubt one of the most talented and technical DJs we know, and this doesn’t go un noticed in the scene. Sean regularly plays the constantly sold out Sleepin is Cheatin parties in Leeds, plays right through the summer in Ibiza and holds down a residency at Radio 1xtra. He will be inviting more local DJs to support him for the night!
Expect confetti, inflatables, CO2 and top notch music from open to close. Tickets are on sale now using the following link, they are only £5(+bf), entry on the door will be more. Let’s all get together and see out 2016 in style. #Calypso
