Lets face it..... Biggest party of the year so far from us
The summers gone wild over in Ibiza with the explosion of the Zoo Parties each Saturday and Wednesday and the much anticipated launch of the Channel Zoo record label.
Literally thousands of people that made these amazing partys were lucky enough to see Europes or dare we say the worlds biggest rising stars from the underground house music scene.
Having two of our very own boys as Zoo residents and our very own Gandalf the party wizard as one of the Zoo's main hombres can only mean one thing.... And thats to break all barriers and bring the Zoos original residents all the way from Ibiza to play to the riffraff faithful.
So here we go we bring you:
This is the guy that has rocked the Seal Pit from day one, this is the guy thats played with all of the leading DJ's at the Zoo Project, this is the guy that rocks the amazing German Subsonic boat partys in Ibiza. The man never stops he has played from the Berlin Love Parade right through to hosting the DC 10 Circoloco parties in Vienna and now we are happy to bring him to all of you very lucky people.
But we dont just wanna do things in halves! In fact it wouldnt be a proper Zoo theme without the other half of the Safari duo coming to our party.
Ladies and gentlemen we present you with MILOU the DJ that completely took the Seal Pit to another level on her debut appearance this year. Its the girl that plays the deepest grooviest tech out of all Zoo residents. Her music is of the no nonesense get your fu*king heads down and move genre.
Our own boys will also be playing this party as always and lets not forget that this summer has seen Gows tracks being played by the worlds biggest DJ's all around the globe. His newest track "Wappa Do It" has just been released on the Trapez 100th aniversary release album alongside artists such as Gabriel Ananda and Format B.
Not only that but Lee has been a busy boy with his remix of 2020 Soundsystems "Sliding Away" winning the 2020 Vision We Love Space competition judged by Ralph Lawson and putting his remix up their alongside Johnny D's.
Then of course theres big Pauly Bowen who has just released his first vinyl on Lunar records this week with tracks from Justin Drake, Bearweasel and Chris Lattiner. Plus he also produced an awsome remix of the 2020 soundsystem track coming a close second to Lee Penningtons resulting in Ralph Lawson contacting him personally about it.
