This year, the UK house and techno label Solid Grooves announced a new home for their summer Ibiza residency. For the 2022 sessions–branded Solid Grooves Motel–the collective is taking over Ibiza’s original underground club, DC-10. With the party’s original location Privilege no longer open, Solid Grooves needed a new spot to party. Now, the 17-week residency is taking place at one of the best-known clubs on the planet, made famous by hedonistic after-hours sessions and all-day partying.
Running from 11 pm to 7 am on September 22, Solid Grooves will offer its well-known mix of tech and minimal house to its cult following. This week, regulars of Solid Grooves Michael Bibi and Dennis Cruz are joined by Chris Stussy, Davide Squillace b2b Matthias Tanzmann, Dennis Ferrer, DJ W!ld, DJOKO, Kellie Allen, Reelow, and Sidney Charles.
Dutchman Chris Stussy draws on the disco and jazz of his youth to give his house music a special, standout character. This DJ, producer, and label boss emerged with a string of successful singles in 2014 and hasn’t stopped turning heads since.
In a special back-to-back performance, two-thirds of Better Lost Than Stupid will take the stage this week. Davide Squillace and Matthias Tanzmann are both known for their vocal-driven club stormers, and have undeniable chemistry on the decks that can’t be beaten.
Dennis Cruz has been noted as Beatport’s third-best tech house artist and is a pillar of the underground house and tech community. This week he’s going B2B with Dennis Ferrer, a house producer at the forefront of dance music for over 15 years.
Formerly a cult favorite of the house heads in the Parisian underground, DJ W!ld is now a globally recognized talent. His flagship label, The W Label, serves up his signature deep, sometimes dirty sound, and regularly spins for high-end fashion shows.
Hailing from the ever-evolving German music scene, DJOKO started the popular HOOVE event brand to help showcase house music in a saturated German techno scene. His sound is influenced by funk, soul, garage, and anything that feels underground and raw.
Kellie Allen hails from London but is now based in Ibiza. She hosts a weekly radio show on Ibiza Global Radio that showcases her deep, soulful take on groovy house music.
Solid Grooves founder Michael Bibi is a proven tech house master and astute entrepreneur. The London-based producer/DJ has fought his way to the top through years of honing his craft, forging his own path, and working on himself.
After first presenting his talents at respected parties in Budapest, Reelow turns churning basslines into heavy-hitting dancefloor records. The Barcelona-based artist has received nods from some of the industry’s biggest names, and recently started his own imprint, Reecords.
“The Sidney Sound” is notable to fans thanks to chunky drums, heavy low ends, and infectious rhythms that just won’t quit. Sidney Charles pioneered this trademark sound of his by honoring the rough and dirty sounds of house pioneers but with a modern, punchy approach.
