Godskitchen, one of the worlds most seminal dance music brands is turning twenty, and on the 27th of September, an all star line up will be coming to The Rainbow Venues’ Textile Factory, helping thousands of clubbers celebrate two decades of parties that have seen an awesome number of DJs and live music acts play at the many venues that Godskitchen has called home since the very beginning.
Formerly holding home at The Sanctuary in Birmingham, Godskitchen began holding parties that sold out in succession, leading to the fan base growing and the roster of guests reaching one of the largest around. After three seasons in Ibiza holding parties at Amnesia, Godskitchen opened their own nightclub CODE and again began to host regular nights fronting the best in trance from around the world. In 2001 Godskitchen launched their first ever music festival, Global Gathering that is still one of the most prosperous dance music festival in the UK, with a open minded music policy and a capacity of 50,000 dance music lovers.
This landmark event at The Textile Factory will see Godskitchen favourite Paul Van Dyk headlining the affair. Paul Van Dyk has - similarly to the Godskitchen brand - been a treasured trance pioneer since he began his career over 20 years ago DJing at Tresor, now a haven of high quality techno.
Appearing at Godskitchen a handful of times since their first parties, he has been a mainstay in the hearts of all the clubbers who have watched him play over the years. With now classic tracks such as ‘For An Angel’ and his remix of BT’s ‘Flaming June’, Paul Van Dyk’s productions are still widely heard in club land today, his appearance at Godskitchen TXXENTY will be a momentous one to say the least.
Secondly we have the new fusing of Solarstone and Giuseppe Ottaviani, who together form PURENRG, a live project that is making its European debut at Godskitchen TWENTY. The two have a string of celebrated releases as solo producers, so to have them performing live together is an exciting prospect indeed. Next we have John ‘00’ Fleming, the English born trance producer who again has been a faithful Godskitchen guest for many years. Stretching the line up to even further impressiveness is Ferry Tayle, Ben Nicky, Paul Thomas, Sam Mitcham and Steve Arnold, rounding off what is looking to be a birthday celebration on the scale that Godskitchen deserve.
