Afterparty @ Ministry Of Sound with ROGER SANCHEZ
It’s been amazing eighteen years since Tapsa started organizing illegal raves in the squat houses of Helsinki in early 90s. His most bizarre experience must have been DJing for Jean-Paul Gaultier and Helena Christensen at a Berlin fetish club called KitKat after their first ever Berlin show. Most flashy ones have been entertaining the rich & famous of Hong Kong and Russia while warming up for The Chemical Brothers, Paul Van Dyk and Underworld was no doubt something he will never forget. Venues he's DJed include Tresor in Berlin, Pacha in Ibiza, Panama in Amsterdam and Code in Tokyo.
His recording career started in 1998 with Slusink Luna'sNicklas Renqvist. ‘Unity’ was signed to British Steelfish label and found it’s way to Gatecrasher and Renaissance compilations. Sasha and Oakenfold opened their Essential Mixes with it and Pete Tong played it on BBC Radio 1. Gigs with Dj Tiesto lead into signing to his Black Hole label while other releases include ‘Embrace’ on Five AM, ‘Beautiful’ on Sential (Finnish national singles chart #1) and the Andy Moor collab ‘YearZero’ on Andy’s AVA label. His remixes include Aalto’s ‘Rush’ made together with Super8, Stage One remix made for Hooh Choons and more recently Way Out West's Killa which started out as a bootleg.
He has run Club Unity for over ten years, promoted Renaissance's events in Helsinki and organized events called "Pacifique" for almost 3000 people in a water par and has made many remixes for big trance labels like Anjunabeats or Hooj Choons and for artists like Tiësto, Tilt and Way Out West. Dj
When not Djing he is also employed as a sound design manager at the Nokia Corporation.
Up and coming Dj who is a regular at The Gallery in London and is playing for us for the second time after performing a storming set 2 years ago warming up for Andrew Bennett and Mr Sam. He has 2 tracks out on the massive Anjunadeep label 'q.e.d' and also 'In our Dreams' . He is also signed to Solaris and Baroque under the DJH Alias and has a new single 'For so long' about to come out on Alter Ego Records.His sound is essentially melodic progressive.
Robin will be playing on his 4th boat party for us having also performed at The Gallery, Ministry of Sound as well as recent international dates at La Diosa in Buenos Aries as well as in Punte Del Este. He is also making good progress on the production front with new track 'crossroads' coming out on the Progressive Grooves Label. A collaboration he did with Dave Horne.
Jumby & Scotty A
ES regulars Jumby & Scotty.A's popularity continues to grow with their recent reputation for playing 5 hour sets at a very popular late night bar / terrace in Norwich. They've also just headlined for another very popular house night called overdose, which was very well received. Scotty.A has been pursuing a solo production career over the last 13months & has already been crowned the global underground / Mixmag Bedroom producer of 2009/10. He's eagerly awaiting his first official release, which comes courtesy of Aquasounds, a new progressive house label based out of Miami. So you can expect a very fresh & up front prog & techno sound from Jumby & Scotty.A onboard on the 7th!
Alan Sykes & Rhys Thomas

They have held a residency for the massive Escape in Swansea for some time as well as for another trance night in Wales called Delusion and also have upcoming radio projects and productions lined up.
" I heard them play a recent gig in Swansea and was very impressed. I've played many a gig where the dj warming up / playing after me has been not so good. It made a refreshing change to hear them play and im sure they have a bright future ahead of them" (Jon O'Bir)
Ben is our ever reliable resident who will be making his first appearance of the summer after playing the set of his life in between Adam Sheridan and Mike Foyle in May. Ben's versatility makes him the perfect resident and he continues to impress us with his energy and enthusiasm behind the decks. Guaranteed to get everyone dancing he is certainly a Dj for the future as well as present.
TwinBeatz are a double act dj team made up of Daniel James (Ministry & Pacha) and Will Craig ( Ministry and ES Paradis resident). Their sound is predominantly the Electro Tech House sound with an ear for a good baseline and glitchy vocals with lots of energy. Making their 3rd appearance for ElectronicSessions they are a must see duo.
A veteran of the festival scene and member of the notorious Curious Yellow Soundsystem, Bill will move the floor with beats that range from blissed out Balearica to hypnotic techno.

Loui & Bomber are two experienced DJs and producers from the South West Of England. Both honed in the early 90's. Previous individual residencies have been some of the countries most well known and best loved nightclubs including the original and infamous Plymouth Warehouse, Lakota and The Depot.
