With a cracking SOLD OUT opening cruise with Graeme Park & Todd Terry, it’s safe to say your summer has arrived with a bang!
Next up we celebrate a very special milestone, our 15th birthday!
Some of you have been with us from the very start; others joined our family recently, all with one thing in common, the love of good music and the passion to party!
For our Boxing Day Cruise we are excited to invite the following artists…
“It’s not easy to describe my sound. This is because I play a large spectrum of the house genre, as long as it fits into one set. I do have a big focus on drums and percussion throughout my sets and productions. So if I had to try to put it into a genre, it’s groovy Latin house with lots of vibe!” – Franky Rizardo. Few could have predicted the way in which Dutch house blew up in recent years. It’s now undeniably one of the biggest currencies in global dance music, with everyone from hip-hop megastars to the reggaeton community embracing its chunky, syncopated style in some way, shape or form. You’ve heard about your Jacks and your Lukes; now it’s time for one Franky Rizardo to step into the spotlight. Serendipitously born during the second summer of love – acid house’s take-off year, 1988 – Franky gorged himself on Holland’s burgeoning dance music scene from an early age. Daft Punk’s groundbreaking Homework was the first album he ever bought, and by the age of 14 he was DJing and creating music of his own. His newfound obsession soon blossomed into something bigger than just a bedroom hobby, with a residency at renowned Dutch club Manhattan soon following and marking the start of his professional career.
Since 2010, he’s been closely linked with Defected – the world’s biggest and most influential house music label – providing remixes for them of hot names including DJ Gregory, Studio Apartment, Copyright, Michael Gray and Danism. Now a fully-fledged member of the family, he’s got their full backing – and that’s not something they ever give lightly. Clearly, they see something pretty special in him.
The Father of the Balearic Beat, born in Argentina, 1953, Alfredo Fiorito lived in his native town of Rosario until the age of 23. In 1976 he left his homeland and immigrated to Spain, ending up a few months later on the island that would shape the rest of his life.
Alfredo could never have imagined the success that was soon to follow. By his own admission, a combination of lucky circumstances and a great team at Amnesia helped him to achieve the success as a DJ that he had dreamed of, and to this day, he maintains a great respect for and many fond memories of that same original Amnesia staff, not to mention party goers…Amnesia soon became the best after club in the world. The crowd grew weekly, transferring their socializing from Ku (now known as Privilege) to Amnesia to form an intrinsic part of never before witnessed scenes of wild and carefree fun in the sun-glasses on, dancing in the sunny open air terrace that became the legend we all know today…
Amongst other international awards and recognition that Alfredo has received throughout his lengthy career, he won DJ of the Decade in internationally known DJ Magazine in 1988. He was also the first DJ ever to receive an award at the Middem Awards in Cannes. In the 2005 Ibiza DJ Awards, he was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award, clearly proving his status in the Music Industry that lives on today.
Alfredo is still a firm favorite on the infamous Space Terrace, where he can be seen rocking the crowd on a weekly basis!
