The 14th May represents the last day of term for all LJMU students, so this party is the perfect way to end the academic year. As a result we have booked an old friend. We are very proud to present...Sonny Wharton. The Superfly gig will be one of the final shows of his 'Exploring..UK' album tour having played at Ministry of Sound and Godskitchen a matter of days before.
DJ Mag declared, “What makes Sonny stand out from the pack is his combination of talent and determination” and never was a statement more apt! An innovator and workaholic Sonny Wharton has developed, tweaked and honed his 3 deck wizardry with industry leaders Ecler and Ortofon signing him up as a UK Ambassador to showcase just what their technology is capable of in the right pair of hands.
Sonny's major breakthrough came when spotted by Renaissance in their mix-tape competition with DJ Mag. This lead to a weekly Ibiza residency with Manumission and sets at Amnesia for Renaissance along with selection by Mixmag to become one of their original “future heroes” next to the likes of Nic Fanciulli, and Gareth Emery.
Since then Sonny’s racked up slots at the who’s who of clubbing institutions; Pacha, Ministry Of Sound, Godskitchen and Space whilst consistently rocking clubs and festivals all over the world; Australia, Brazil, China, France, Mexico, Morocco, Russia, Spain and Korea. Sonny has held down a monthly residency in Barcelona, completed two solo world tours and played to over 1 million people at The Love Parade in Berlin, Germany.
No stranger to radio and TV Sonny’s completed 3 prestigious guest mixes for the world famous Radio 1 in addition to countless live interviews and regularly features on the likes of Galaxy, Ministry Of Sound and Kiss. Sonny has also appeared on both The Gadget Show and MTV.
Having honed his talents touring club land Sonny has also committed a lot of time in the studio over the last 18months with his productions and remixes gaining heavyweight support from the likes of Pete Tong, Sander Kleinenberg, Mark Knight, Steve Angello and Roger Sanchez as well as featuring on major Radio, TV and Film.
With Toolroom knighting him "a certified member of the house music elite", the launch of his own label Whartone and releases lined up on Ministry Of Sound, Joia, Baroque and Positiva, Sonny’s place amongst the production community has also fast become one to watch!
Joining him on the night in the fishtank will be Dorsia's DnB residents, Miss Kendal (What is This?) and Pidgeonhole Disco jock General Jimmy.
We look forward to seeing you down there...
