Alex Arnout
Aiming simply to “make great music”, not to mention his collabarations with Jamie Jones and Clive Henry for the hotter-than-hot Hot Waves crew, whilst EPs for Composite and Vitalik and another collaborative effort with Clive – this time as Black to The Future – have also been confirmed and can be added to the myriad Arnout reworks included on the recent Rebel Rave compilation on Crosstown Rebels. All those accomplishments are commendable on their own, but one of the most important roles Arnout plays in the contemporary electronic scene is as label boss and A&R man for his own decidedly individually label, Dogmatik.

Mark Jenkyns
His ability to work a consummate mix of warm, deep house infused with a ghetto-funk danceability has already captured the attention of an enviable mix of top DJs and fans alike. Mark has enjoyed a series of well received releases on Hot Creations and Hot Waves in addition to a string of performances alongside the labels’ finest talents. Following appearances on the first two Hot Waves releases with ‘Super Star’ and ‘Wondering’ Mark will once again be included on the next compilation with new track ‘Moola’ just as his ‘Wind It Back’ will make an appearance on Hot Creation’s Paradise Summer Vinyl Sampler this July.

Support on the night from our very own Leeds legends and residents Buckley and Frenchy

Ian Blevins
As much a part of Ibiza as an overpriced Mojito, Ian Blevins is hastily becoming one of the islands defining features. Thanks to a weekly residency at arguably the greatest, and by far the most globally well-known night on the island, We Love… at Space, his profile gains pace with every set he unleashes.
