We can’t believe it’s that time of year already, time flies when you’re having fun! We’ve loved having you all on board this summer and it’s true, there’s no Zoo without you! So, lets go out with a bang and have one final, wild, Zoo Project Ibiza 2012 gathering!
We are proud to present Terry Francis. He’s been blazing a trail through the underground scene for over 10 years, with Releases on Pagan and Eukahouse, a long standing residency at London’s Fabric club and his own notorious night Wiggle, one of London’s best loved underground techno nights.
Aside from the continued success of Wiggle and the release of his "Architecture 2" mix album on Pagan, the last few years have seen Terry's career continue to blossom. With his seamless mix of deep, dubby house and shimmering techno sensibility Terry is known for his instinctive ability to work a crowd. Playing from the heart he blurs the lines between past and present to create the future! Since winning Muzik magazines "Best New DJ" award in 1997, Terry Francis has had what can only be described as a meteoric rise to fame and perhaps more than anything else it was unanimously praised "Architecture" mix album that really put him on the map. His most recent releases such as How Can Something So Deep, 3 Steps Left and Freedom EP have gained support from the likes of John Digweed and Lee Burridge in particular.
Tony Lionni has had a busy couple of years releasing on key labels such as Freerange, Madhouse records, Defected records, Ostgut-ton, Versatile, Mule Musique and of course Francois K’s legendary Wave Music. His musical style is a perfect fusion of Detroit tinged techno and brooding deep house and has gained him plaudits and support from press and DJs alike.
A resident of Manchester in its 1980s Chicago / Detroit acid house heyday, Tony Lionni could be found partying at the Hacienda with the best of them. Now resident in Berlin, the producer has managed to find the meeting point between these three great cities. On long-overdue debut album "As One" he fuses the clean lines of Berlin with the warmth of Detroit and jacking dancefloor sounds of Chicago. That's not forgetting the big piano line, of course, as featured on his massive Ostgut Ton release "Found A Place" (re-jigged here as "Found Another Place"). This is music that soothes your soul and moves your body at the same time. Quality tech-house music for the heart.
Evan Baggs is a born and bred New York DJ who now resides in Berlin. Having gained a reputation through his sheer passion, consistently energetic track selections, clever and precise mixing he’s fast becoming a DJ in demand. He has played worldwide from Brazil to China and everywhere in between. His DJ sets are as exciting and diverse as his hometown and have gained him support from international DJ’s and producers, who recognize him as a legitimate up and coming talent.
The Zoo Project is a very special daytime open-air gathering taking place in the beautiful gardens of Gala Night Park, in an old abandoned zoo right in the very hills of Benimussa, Ibiza. Each and every Saturday the Zoo crew invites friends and family to come and celebrate life and music in a very unique way, which is created because of the people who attend the Zoo, the vibe we create as one and the music which accompanies us all on our journey. Each week offers a first-rate selection of revered guest artists and of course, a lovely helping of The Zoo Project's very own beloved artists.
The Zoo Project is a place where we are all equal - who ever you are & wherever you come from - we are all one, communicating and expressing ourselves through music and dance. It's a place where you can lose yourself and find yourself all over again in an instant, set to an unforgettable soundtrack. It’s an experience you simply do not want to miss out on!
Wednesdays host our diverse and unparalleled Channel Zoo events.
Saturdays bring you the original Zoo Project event now famous the world over since 2007.
The Zoo Project team also run the Channel Zoo Recordings record label, established in 2011.
