Continuing a groundbreaking year which has already seen MN2S celebrate its 11th birthday, launch its Masterclass compilation series, release a stream of celebrated singles by Jon Cutler, Hardsoul, The Jinks and Timmy Vegas & Barbara Tucker and return to Miami for another huge WMC party at Amika, London’s most recognisable house music brand is proud to announce the launch of a Sunday night residency at El Divino in Ibiza this summer.
From Sunday 25 June to Sunday 17 September MN2S will be taking over the renowned port-side venue with a selection of the most sought-after artists in the House Music realm. Joey Negro and CJ Mackintosh, both driving forces in the global dance music scene for over 15 years, have been secured as exclusive 2006 residents.
‘I’ve known the MN2S blokes since they were wriggling in their disco nappies and while they’re nothing short of mad-house monkeys, they’re truly experts at packing in one of hell of a party,’ Joey Negro says. ‘My heaving production commitments in the UK have always meant I’ve resisted the lure of an Ibiza club residency. But a bloke can only resist temptation for so long and when I saw their sizzlingly cool but current line-up for this summer at the ever magical El Divino, I was tickled to climb on board.’
Joey and CJ will be joined on Sunday 25 June by none other than pioneer New York house institution Todd Terry who will bring over 20 years experience rocking crowds to El Divino. ‘Todd The God’ will appear alongside Philippe ‘Zdar’ Cerboneschi, better known as celebrated French producer Cassius, guaranteeing MN2S’s debut Ibiza party will be one talked about for months to come!
MN2S’s stylish production team will ensure El Divino is transformed into the ultimate Sunday night venue, guaranteeing an explosive atmosphere and a dazzling party to rival anything else taking place on the island.
MN2S nights not only attract the most dedicated clubbers in the world but many of the industry’s premier names who, between their own DJ and production commitments, find themselves at MN2S events from London to Amsterdam to Miami. Whether it’s Louie Vega or Jocelyn Brown dropping into The End on a night out, Robert Owens singing Happy Birthday to a rammed End crowd, Dimitri From Paris popping in for a boogie between his own London appearances or Martin Solveig joining the hundreds at Amika in Miami, MN2S is now as much revered by global clubbers as by the most respected names in the dance music realm.
As MN2S director Sharron Elkabas explains, ‘We’ve been asked in recent years why we haven’t already launched an Ibiza residency and the truth is we always felt the time was not right. 2006 is a different story though. We want to kick our second decade off in style and things don’t come much bigger than a residency at El Divino in Ibiza; we’re all very excited. We’ve got some great line ups planned and will be pulling some big surprises out of the bag.’
On the label side, MN2S are about to enjoy their biggest ever crossover smash in the form of ‘Dutty Funk (We Can Do)’ by Timmy Vegas and Barbara Tucker. They have also just launched their hotly anticipated ‘Masterclass’ compilation series, the first volume of which is mixed by Peppermint Jam main man Mousse T..
