One of the most promising new school progenitors of deep house, Dennis Ferrer is currently enjoying “hit maker” status for UK based powerhouse Defected Records with his remix of Blaze’s “Most Precious Love”, and the ongoing success of his original production with Jerome Sydenham “Sandcastles”. Already placed within the pantheon of dance classics, “Sandcastles” represents the sound of an evolving genre, a new incarnation of deep house music melding techno, soul and Afro rhythms.   This is the now sound of Ferrer called ‘Pan African Electro’, and it has become the cornerstone of DJ sets across all genres from Jeff Mills to Timmy Regisford to Sasha.

Bacardi Breezer presents Renaissance Utilities CD Tour with James Zabiela (UK)
Saturday 18 June 2005 at Zouk
There are few names to have cut a swathe through dance music in recent years, and James Zabiela would undoubtedly be amongst those on the shortlist. In just 3 years, this young devotee of all things electronic has secured Sasha and Lee Burridge amongst his biggest fans; remixed the likes of Royksopp; toured the world; and even secured a consultancy with Pioneer, road-testing and advising on the development of their DJ equipment. To follow up to last years critically acclaimed ALiVE CD for Renaissance, James looks set to make headlines yet again with this Utilities CD, which will feature original music from this young, talented star - his first foray into solo production.

Bacardi coke and Bacardi Breezer are available one for one all night.

Saturday 18 June 2005 at Phuture
Have you read the local newspapers & magazines and seen the term Nu Beats to describe the genre of music we call eclectic? Well that just shows the reach of this night and how it has become synonymous with eclectism and a particular style of marrying all genres together be it soul, broken beat, nu jazz or house into one solid groove.
- For the record, we made the word up!  Nu Beats is just the name of the monthly night at Phuture, not the genre that’s played… but hurrah! We’re happy to contribute to the English vocabulary, just remember where you saw it first!

Grant Nelson (UK)
Friday 24 June 2005 at Zouk
From his early years at the now defunct Nice n Ripe label, creating a string of underground anthems that were hammered by djs from both ends of the Atlantic, Grant is one of the most established house dj and producer to come out of the UK. By the mid 90s, Grant started another label - Swing City, where he produced Negrocan’s “Cada Vez”, which became a universal smash topping even the pop charts in several countries and has so far seen worldwide sales of nearly 2 million copies. And besides remix duties for the likes of Bebel Gilberto, Frankie Knuckles, Reel People & The Brand New Heavies, he continues to spread the gospel of funky soulful house music through his gigs all over the world.

At a tender young age of 24, Nic has achieved what most budding djs can only dream of. Starting his own Portent record label at 19, compiling a covermount CD for Mixmag, and DJing all over the world. As a producer (working under his Skylark banner with Andy Chatterly), he scored big with a remix of Tears For Fears’ “Shout”, and has since gone on to remix the likes of Deep Dish and Sandy Rivera. Named the finest resident in the UK by Pete Tong, and receiving props from Danny Howells, Steve Lawler and many others along the way, Nic has now joined the ranks of BBC Radio One’s dance roster, so watch out for this rising star!
