UK GARAGE PI­O­NEERS SUN CITY THROW IT DOWN IN DUBAI

Infusion Magazine - - FRONT PAGE -

Since 1996, the Sun City brand has pro­vided some of the big­gest pro­mo­tions through­out UK and Europe in the house and garage club scene. The brand started thanks to its un­for­get­table weekly events ev­ery Satur­day at the ‘ Adrenalin Vil­lage’ in Chelsea. The leg­endary event ran for over 4 years, and at­tracted 2000 en­er­getic party peo­ple from all over the UK on a weekly ba­sis.

Dur­ing Sun City’s peak years they held par­ties in the heart of the West End, in venues like The Hip­po­drome, As­to­ria, Em­po­rium, and Equinox. Sun City soon be­came in­fa­mous within the UK through the re­lease of tape record­ings of each of the events, called Sun City tape packs ( yes, cas­sette tapes!). Th­ese tape packs would sell in the thou­sands, of­ten more than com­mer­cial al­bum sales.

The re­lease and sale of th­ese tape packs made the DJs and MCs house­hold names. Up and down the UK, peo­ple saw the likes of Heart­less Crew, Pay As You Go Kar­tel, The Dreem Team and So Solid com­pletely take over the UK charts and ra­dio waves.

The Dream Team went on to be­come the am­bas­sadors of UK Garage with their weekly prime time show on BBC Ra­dio 1, be­com­ing a sta­ple lis­ten for all UK Garage fans across the UK. Heart­less Crew and Pay As You Go Crew went on to have top ten- chart suc­cess that later led to the leg­endary sound clash at Des­tiny’s in Wat­ford which was the most trea­sured tape record­ing of ev­ery UK Garage fan in the world.

Maxwell D of Pay As You Go, also achieved solo suc­cess in the UK Na­tional charts with his sin­gle “Se­ri­ous” chart­ing in the Top 20. So Solid Crew stormed the UK charts with nu­mer­ous top 10 sin­gles and one num­ber 1 sin­gle, ‘ 21 Sec­onds’. The group con­sisted of a large num­ber of mem­bers, the most no­table be­ing Romeo, Lisa Mafia and Har­vey all of whom went onto big­ger and bet­ter things, and are well known TV per­son­al­i­ties.

In Europe, Sun City hosts ex­tremely suc­cess­ful an­nual sum­mer events in Ayia Napa, Falaraki, Malia, Ma­galuf, Croa­tia, Bul­garia, New York and now Dubai. Sun City pro­vides mem­o­rable party nights like no other. Over the years Sun City has at­tracted the elite of UK Garage artists and for their next in­stall­ment they have pulled out all the stops to bring one of the big­gest UK Garage line­ups Dubai has ever seen to Level 41 at Me­dia One Ho­tel. Whis­tles and horns at the ready for what is shap­ing up to be a truly mem­o­rable night.
