The event is set for Saturday August 4th with one of the freshest lineups to hit the capital in a long time, I'm very very pleased to announce that I'll be playing alongside some of the trance scenes most innovative DJs as we cruise down the Thames.

Sick Djs

Duff J
Dan Goss
& Loads more to be confirmed!

Mr Sam is someone we are absolutely delighted to get down for us at ElectronicSessions. He is in the middle of a world tour promoting his new album
' Opus ' which is getting rave reviews at the moment and it will be his 1st appearance in London in years so as you can guess we are all very excited. Expect the very best in driving underground electronic dance music.

Andrew Bennett is one of the most talked about up-and-coming artists in dance at the moment. Having started out in the production duo 'Hammer and Bennett' with a number of classy releases, this German sensation has since been churning out quality after quality on his own and is now really starting to get recognized, with people Like Armin and Markus Schultz stating him as their favourite DJ…That's some accolade! We at ES are privileged to get Andrew over for what will be his UK Debut !!

Niklas Harding is of course our new resident, and this will be the first time he has graced the ES turntables since we made the announcement. To be honest Niklas has the world at his feet! He has already played all the main promotions in England including bookings at all the Gatecrasher events over the country and is now starting to make his name on the global scale with tours of Asia and America lined up. We will be showcasing Niklas in London as much as possible and we are honoured to have such a superstar in the making as our resident !

Bailey has consistently provided us with the best demos over the last year and his radio show is second to none, where ironically he has Andrew Bennett up next doing a guest mix, don't miss it !

Completing the Upper Deck we have David Horne kicking things off in style with the very best in Progressive house! Coming all the way from Cambridge, David has already featured at London institution 'The Gallery' this year on 2 occasions, so has all the credentials to provide the perfect opener in the sun!

The Lower Deck will feature the Sick Djs very Own Andy Burby, Andy has been making a real name for himself alongside his partners in crime who will also playing their part in this event. Together their night Sick is really making waves as one of the top house nights in London with a new residency at SeOne in Aug.

The Persuadors are a duo that you will be seeing a lot more of in London. 2007 is looking to be a good year with bookings up and down the country including guests at the top room at Pacha, on a bi-monthly basis in London. The lads are constantly in the studio & are now being produced by legendary House Music engineer Richard Searle (X-Press 2, Mark Wilkinson & Dab Hands). With all this happening they are developing a local & national following at a rapid rate.

Chris Cee is the co promoter of London night Fundamental and is one of the most recognisable house names in town having been a regular spinner at clubs such as Turnmills and Heaven. Fundamental is going from strength to strength and they recently hosted the house room at Judgement Sundays as well the massive Heat Nye last year where they rocked Brixton Academy. Chris will be bringing his unique blend of Fundamental house on board and we cant wait!

Were also very pleased to get Duff J on, hailing from Swansea we really are making this an international affair:-) Duff has spun at many top house nights in London this year including Maximal where he earns some rave reviews. Looking forward to getting the Welsh crew on board for this to have it large to Mr Duff !

Finally we have Aussie Dan Goss completing the line up. Dan played for us back in April at Corsica Studios where he warmed up for K.Klass and his set was so good we invited him back immediately to play for us in the summer! Get ready for some quality house music, this guy knows how to work the crowd !

See you on the 4th BRING IT ON!

*|Guest Mix for Smü[th] with Jav D Monday July 2nd|*
