Ministry of Sound is bringing you hottest DJs, every Saturday, this May
This May at Ministry of Sound we're all about respected underground talent. That's why we're putting on a month of underground heroes both past and present, every Saturday, in the best room in clubland.
Kicking things off on 3rd May are German house duo M.A.N.D.Y. who will be headlining our Exit Festival launch party. The M.A.N.D.Y. guys have been making a name for themselves for a while now and are probably best known for setting up respected label Get Physical Records, with dance legends Booka Shade. Joining M.A.N.D.Y. on the night will be Resident Advisor 'Top 20 Live Act' Max Cooper and U.S. superstar producer, Doorly. To get a flavour of what the night will sound like, check out M.A.N.D.Y.'s Essential Mix below.
The very next day, we're keeping the DJ duo vibe going, by bringing you Catz 'N Dogz, who will keep you dancing long into the bank holiday. The polish duo will be making their Ministry of Sound debut as part of the Connected bank holiday extravaganza. Joining them in The Box are South-London duo, No Artifical Colours, who will be bringing their signature blend of deep house to get the Ministry of Sound crowd going. A third duo, Waifs and Strays, round out the bill with a headline slot in 103. The Bristolian boys have been making a name for themselves in the UK underground and their track “Yeah Yeah” was dubbed the “dirtiest house track in a long time” by Jackathon boss, Heidi. Have a listen to Catz 'N Dogz Warehouse Project mix below to get you in the mood for some bank holiday beats.
The next weekend we're keeping the underground vibes going with an album launch from party-starting London label, Audio Rehab. This will be their second event in the club and this time they're here to celebrate the release of their first ever label compilation, Volume One. Playing on the night will be Andre Crom, who will be dropping everything from jacking house to reduced grooves. Joining him in The Box is label boss and Rinse FM host Mark Radford, Low Steppa and Playtime Productions. Get a taste for the Audio Rehab sound, with a live mix from label boss Mark Radford below.
Next up it's time for DJ Mag to take over The Box for DJ Mag Sessions on the 17th May. DJ Mag is one of the longest running dance music magazines in the world and their annual Top 100 DJs list is one of the best measures of who’s hot and who’s not in the dance music world, in fact if you don't know what DJ Mag is, you're probably on the wrong website. The publication will be curating a string of events at Ministry of Sound, kicking off in May with Riva Starr and Kevin Saunderson. This Kevin Saunderson Boiler Room live set should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect.
And for the penultimate week of our May schedule, we're truly bringing out the big guns for the We are FSTVL Official After Party. Kerri Chandler is a man who needs no introduction, one of the pioneers of house, a prolific touring DJ and a living legend in his own right; it’s an honour to have him grace our decks. The word “Legend” gets thrown around a lot these days, but Kerri is one of the few who not only lives up to the name, but also pushes the boundaries of the term to its limit. Still need convincing? We'll let this live set from last year's Exit Festival do the talking!
Rounding out our May roster is one of the biggest names from across the pond, Kaskade will be bringing his considerable DJ skills to South London on the 31st May. Kaskade has enjoyed a whirlwind of success over the past ten years. His big break came in 2003 after the release of his debut album, It's You, It's Me. After rising to prominence alongside contemporaries such as Deadmau5 and Wolfgang Gartner. DJ Times readers voted Kaskade 'America's Best DJ' in 2011 and again in 2013. Here he is wowing the crowd at this year's Ultra Music festival in Miami.
