ElectronicSessions 4TH BIRTHDAY!
In Association with Nocturnal
Saturday 27th February 2010
The Golden Jubilee
Temple Pier, Temple Tube


It all started in February 2006 when we kicked off ES parties at Se1’s ‘Deep Blue Arena’ with Ashley Casselle, John Askew, Gavyn Mytchell and Andy Bagguley. We would like to think 4 years on we are still pushing boundaries and putting on some of the best and most upfront line ups in the Capital. We have come a long way since then though. With regular parties at Deep Blue in 2006 with the likes of Andy Moor, Simon Patterson and the forementioned we moved onto Hidden in Vauxhall for 4 parties in 2007 with some of the worlds biggest Trance Djs like Gareth Emery, Solarstone, Matt Hardwick, John O’Callaghan and Lange, to name just a few. We also tried out new up-and-coming venues, like Corsica Studios, where we handed London and UK debuts to the likes of Leon Bolier, Jonas Steur, Andrew Bennett and Re:Locate.

It was in 2007 that the boat parties really started to kick off and over the past 4 years we have managed to sell out over 25, which has been an incredible experience for us. It was something we realised no one else was doing on a regular basis and has taken off more than we could of have ever imagined. If you like dancing to some of the best Djs in the world, in an intimate surrounding, with 240 other people then this is for you! Basically one big house party on the Thames.

Over 300 Djs have now graced the ES turntables on the Thames with headliners including Andy Moor, Agnelli and Nelson, Menno De Jong, Futureshock, Jody Wisternoff, Smith & Pledger, Sied Van Riel, Prok and Fitch, Orkidea, Dj Montana, Phil Kieren, Jon O’Bir, Slacker, Greg Downey, Dj Tab & Super 8, David West, Ronski Speed…..the list goes on and on.

2010 is the year we hope to take things up yet another level and we feel for our 4th birthday there is no one better to fit the bill than a legend in the music industry. None other than Matt Darey…..



Matt has been one of the pioneers of today’s dance scene being a major influence on today’s world class DJ’s. Because of this, and the fact that this will be Matt’s first London appearance in well over a year, makes this a very special gig.
Throughout his 17 year career of producing & writing house, trance, breaks and progressive and much more he has sold well over 2 million albums & singles with numerous top 10 & top 20 chart hits.
His Nocturnal radio show is the worlds fastest expanding multi genre dance radio show now broadcast on 116 FM stations worldwide. In recent years Matt has been playing his unique “Nocturnal” blend of many styles including electro, progressive, tech, trance and occasional house & breaks. Matt’s new project is an album by his rocktronica band alias `Urban Astronauts` which fuses rock influences with EDM and will be released in 2008…

Matt Darey started his musical career back in 1992 when he released his own independent record and soon after signed his first major album deal with Warner Bro’s and Sire Records in NYC. Matt’s productions have been a major influence on many of today’s top DJ’s like Oakenfold, Tiesto, Armin Van Buren, Paul Van Dyk, Above & Beyond and many more. A chameleon of sound, Matt has produced everything from breaks to house to trance and progressive and was responsible for some of the pinnacle tracks and top ten chart hits to come from the scene including Li Kwan – Point Zero, Lost Tribe – Game Master, ATB – Till I Come, Binary Finary – 1998, Grace – Not Over Yet, Matt Darey – Beautiful and countless others! Constantly touring the globe Matt is respected as a leading DJ in the scene bringing a truly international & Multi genre flavor to his sets.

Li Kwan – Point Zero was one of the first records to be made of the new Genre that then went on to be known as Trance. Embraced by leading DJ’s at the time Pete Tong who made Matt his essential new tune twice and Paul Oakenfold who quoted that Li Kwan was in his top 5 all time fav tracks. Following on from that Matt got into the remix game and turned out numerous club hits which are listed in the discography section. Meanwhile Matt launched his new act Lost Tribe and created one of the all time club anthems Gamemaster on the legendary Hooj Choons label. Matt also went on to launch artists like Tall Paul and Agnelli & Nelson in to the top 20 for the first time with his massive A-side productions.

Since 1998 he sold well over 2 million singles and albums with the Darey imprint, and has been responsible for some of the biggest remixes and productions. Matt took a vacation from the world of music for almost 3 years from 2001 to 2004 and then came back to launch his own label Darey Products. Today he continues to push forward the sounds of dance music into new areas with his rock influenced productions and has continued to tour the globe with his own unique blend of music from many genres.
It’s not often we bring the labels in to represent themselves, however after the success of Andy Moor’s AVA Party last year we thought this was the perfect opportunity to bring in another one.


Hailing from Toronto, Canada. Tyrrell moved to London to continue and progress with his music career in the 1990’s. First and foremost a fantastic producer, and engineering for the likes of David Bowie, A Guy Called Gerald, Boy George, George Michael, Blue Pearl , Simply Red, Giles Peterson, Lilly Allen, Ronie Size and Dirty South to name a few you can see how widespread his talent must be. Producing also for the Stero Mc’s and The Orb, his experience and expertise grew and is now making some of the best progressive and top quality house music around. He has been hand picked by Matt Darey himself who is a huge fan of his work and we are all very much looking forward to him making his ES Debut !


Producer, Singer, top quality Dj and probably the most popular Dj to grace the ES decks. Continuosly has a packed dancefloor when ever she is on and is now busier than ever as she continues to take the scene by storm. Following a successful season at Privilege in 2009, Lizzie Will be representing Juicy with Robbie Riviera at the Miami Winter Music Conference and is going from strength to strengh.

LeoLife aka Luke Curran & Stephen Glide were formed back in June 2009. Luke & Stephen have known each for nearly 10 years so joining forces was an easy decision for them both. Before LeoLife, they had been DJ’ing individually in some of London’s top nightclubs causing some serious dancefloor damage, so by bringing their combined DJ experiences and skills together, a formidable partnership was created.

LeoLife pride themselves on their versatility in terms of music selection and set arrangement. Luke and Stephen have experience in a variance of set times and music genres ranging from house warm-up sets to big room Trance closing sets as well as driving Techno sets. Peak time sets are just as regular for LeoLife and the carefully chosen tracks reflect exactly the party atmosphere generated in the room. Being perfectionists, LeoLife are highly skilled when it comes to mixing techniques and using effects to compliment mixes and build ups.

The beginning of 2010 went down a storm playing the midnight set on New Years Eve at Scala under the Fused brand alongside Internationally acclaimed Smartie Partie, which is a sign of how far LeoLife have come in just over a year of Dj’ing. 2010 is set be a follow on of 2009’s success, with sets at potentially many new venues across the country as well as moving further into the realms of music production. Already there are a few tracks in progress with a view to exposing them in DJ sets over the course of the next year.


Mark has been playing for us now for nearly a year and this is already his 4th appearance. A Popular Dj who really knows how to set the tone of the night. The very best in progressive and tech house! We are delighted he will be performing on this special occasion!
