“the kind of special event that reminds you why people live and breathe dance music. Hats off, well played Unusual Suspects” Aimee Lawrence, Ibiza-Spotlight 2016
‘We are really selective with DJs. You won’t see any mainstream DJs on our lineups. Most of all, we care about quality and productions’ Marco Bassi (Unusual Suspects head)
Ibiza’s word-of-mouth underground techno party Unusual Suspects Ibiza returns to Egg London to celebrate the Easter fiesta on Saturday, April 15th with International guests including Oliver Huntemann, Thomas Melchior, Maayan Nidam, Valentino Kanzyani, Janina, Rick Maia, Marina Karamarko and Federico Grazzini back to back with Frank Storm.
“Being a passionate DJ means never stop searching for the new pearls which make your set special and keep you up to date’ is the key to Hamburg-based techno DJ Oliver Huntemann’s success on the dance floor. A legend in the world of underground techno whose performance schedule includes top clubs and festivals the world over, he’s also a discerning producer and the visionary behind Senso Sounds. His precise infectious grooves utilise futuristic sounds as sampled on his impressive discography, and tonight might give you a sneak peak of his forthcoming album project 'Retrospectivo' with Dubfire.
Israeli DJ/Producer Maayan Nidam won plaudits for her recent ‘Looking Through A Glass Mind’ track on Perlon and 2016 Xlr8r Podcast 428 mix and continues to evolve and challenge boundaries both in her Berlin studio and on stage. She has built a reputation as a fine DJ and producer who incorporates vinyl into her sets, which favour stripped-back and deep sounds, and many a night’s highlights comes from the most unlikely of tracks. Mayaan’s use of live dubs and improvisation on the decks makes for an exciting and unpredictable night for both the crowd and herself.
Founding father of the Slovenian Techno scene, Valentino Kanzyani’s rise started as the resident DJ at Ambasada Gavioli and word-of-mouth grew due to his impressive 3-decks technique all night long sets. After releasing his first tracks as Recycled Loops, he founded his own vinyl-only label Jesus Loved You. His list of EPs, albums and collaborations include a string of successful works on Cadenza Records, Intec and M_nus with his productions varying from deep house to tribal techno.
As well as guesting at US Ibiza, Valentino also ran his own white isle-based party Next Wave from 2011 which quickly became one of the most talked about events of the season. Many of the underground Techno and House most respected names played there, including big league artists such as Arpiar, Luciano and Ricardo Villalobos.
Hugely respected undergrounds techno visionary Thomas Melchior makes a rare UK appearance having first made a name for himself as part of electronica duo Vulva on Aphex Twins’ Rephlex label and as Yoni on Move D’s Source Records. Protégée of techno legend Baby Ford, the pair teamed up to release as Sunpeople, Soul Capsule, and part of the Ifach Collective and M-Core initially only on Trelik and Ifach but later on Melchior’s Aspect Music label. One of the pillars of the minimal house movement on Perlon, Playhouse, a:rpia:r, Smallville, Cadenza, and LoMidHigh Organic, Melchior’s sound has seen him travel the globe clocking up residencies at Ibiza’s Circoloco at DC 10 and part of Villalobos’ Narod Niki party crew.
Marina Karamarko is fresh blood for the electronic music scene, and her unique style and charisma have already won over floors at US, Viva Warriors, Privilege and Sands Ibiza clocking up an ever impressive international diary having played alongside DJs like Steve Lawler, Darius Syrossian, Sante, Phillip Bader and many more.
Marina’s recent ‘Can Get You’ track came out on Thanq following on from her remix of Davide Di Blasi’s ‘Take Me’.
Berlin-born & based, and a pillar of the German electronic underground scene for more than a decade, Janina is acknowledged for her residency at Club der Visionäre. With her impressive musical skills and signature style that continues to evolve, Janina has shared the decks with Marcel Dettmann, Ben Klock, Robert Hood, Chris Liebing, Richie Hawtin (a regular guest for Enter), Sonja Moonear, and Cassy, and is the fortnightly resident of Moscow’s Monasterio Club.
Suspects’ residents, the born in Italy but made in Ibiza DJ Frank Storm brings his solid, physical grooves firing things up back to back with Federico Grazzini. Frank’s ‘Extension’ track with Simon T topped the Beatport chart whilst Grazzini racked up support for his techno-fuelled ‘Bender' alongside the ‘Now Or Never’ remix on Nicole Moudaber’s MoodMusic which followed on from 2015’s glorious ‘Desert Rose’. Moving deftly between house and techno, Federico moulds in an intense funk style that's seen him rock floors from Egg London to Womb in Tokyo, and Watergate in Berlin.
After quickly becoming the toast of the Ibiza 2016 season, Unusual Suspects are returning for their second summer season at Sankeys Ibiza. The original winter party at Sankeys they took the summer crowd by storm last year. At US you can expect a Thursday night pounding of enticing house and techno courtesy of some of the finest talents from across Europe and beyond.
Last year saw Romanian renegade, Rhadoo, Brouqade Records boss, Dana Ruh, and Israeli tastemaker, Shlomi Aber, regulars behind the decks, and while this year’s line-up is still to come, you can expect more of the same this summer.
This year you can also experience Unusual Suspect Open Air being held on a few exclusive dates at Benimussa Park in Ibiza.
Their heady mix of cutting edge techno and house soundtracks some of the most exciting DJ/Producers out there right now, and it brings the white isle passion and musica to Egg London’s Easter fiesta on Saturday, April 15th.
