|Darius Syrossian makes the Breakthrough|
One of last seasons stars at Sankeys, Darius Syrossian, who has just left Steve Lawlers, Viva Warriors crew, is rumoured to be heading up a brand new Tribal Sessions residency in Ibiza this season. Armenian born Syrossian, (who was first noticed by Steve Lawler at Tribal Sessions of Sankeys Manchester in 2007 when Darius stood in for original resident Greg Vickers), is expected to team up with David Vincent in Ibiza this summer, to promote the islands first ever Tribal Sessions residency. One of the UK’s most historic and award winning weekly parties, dubbed “Forward thinking music without prejudice”, returned with a bang on New Years Eve for the first time in three years at Beehive Mill. The success of that party, has led to another Tribal Sessions event being organised for February 7th in Manchester, with Darius Syrossian and Joseph Capriati amongst others. It is also expected that the legendary Tribal party, will be a part of Sankeys plans for its New York and London residency, which will launch on March 15th. The brand is rumoured to be contemplating a move to Ibiza this summer, with the exciting Syrossian, expected to headline the party and help curate the music alongside Vincent. A Tribal Sessions residency, would have a fresh panel of artists to draw from, like Hector Couto, Sidney Charles, and the talented Sankeys Manchester resident, Jozef K. The Tribal Sessions party originated from the world famous Tribal Gathering, which was one of the first big rave festivals held at Pertwood Farm in April 1993. It was attended by over 25,000 people and had the all star team of Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin, Sven Vath, Laurent Garnier, Sasha and Jeff Mills. If the party gets the green light for Ibiza 2014, it will be one of the highlights of the Sankeys Calender this summer. Expect to hear a lot more of the Darius Syrossian name in Ibiza this year, as the island welcomes a fresh wave of DJ talent.
