ANTS ANNOUNCE BPM TAKEOVER:
FRIDAY 6TH JANUARY 2017

Featuring a B2B from Andrea Oliva and Davide Squillace

Friday 6th January, 2017
10pm – 6am
ANTS @ BPM Festival, Mexico

As Mexico’s massive party series prepares for its 10th anniversary on the paradisiacal Playa del Carmen, BPM is the latest stopover for ANTS and their huge global tour. Taking place on Friday 6th January, the colony will deliver an irresistible spore of tech-house from a swarm of its most stylish selectors – and will be led by a b2b performance from brand pioneer Andrea Oliva and Davide Squillace.

Backed by serial dancefloor seducers including Francisco Allendes, Secondcity, Matthias Tanzmann and Joris Voorn, the latest ANTS takeover is a statement of intent for the year to come. Spurred on by a rapidly growing momentum that’s been created from parties across the globe in Dubai, Hong Kong, Malta, Belgium and the UK, ANTS will then return home to Ibiza next Summer where they’ve held residence since 2013. Bringing a touch of the dark to even the brightest of beaches, their BPM party will be a sun-stroked celebration that’s not to be missed.

ants_saturday

As Ushuaïa’s homegrown colony prepares to make their eagerly anticipated return as Saturday residents, ANTS have now unleashed the full details of this year’s weekly line-ups running from 4th June – 24th September.

Featuring a huge array of names across the house and techno spectrum, the 2016 schedule will be led by synonymous resident Andrea Oliva, as well as the White Isle’s most dark and seductive recruits. Previously unveiling a high-voltage opening night featuring Groove Armada, Kölsch – who appears throughout the season – and Eli & Fur, the wider bill sees house gangster DJ Sneak also on board, backed by the similarly stand-setting Sasha and contemporary class in Joris Voorn.

Island trustee Pete Tong is also confirmed, whilst the ANTS spell is magnified by even more magnetic names with the addition of esteemed energy Eats Everything and his recent Edible signee Lauren Lane. Purp & Soul star player and boss Ben Pearce makes his 2016 return, whilst Garage crossover Gorgon City continue to flourish within the ANTS family after appearing across several dates throughout the ANTS winter tour.

Maya Jane Coles, Matthias Tanzmann, Nic Fanciulli, Francesca Lombardo, Ilario Alicante, Catz n Dogz and Yousef are just some of the further names that will be taking the helm this season, and with more special guests yet to be announced, there’s no doubt as to why Ushuaïa’s weekly flagship is one of the most in demand parties on the island.

Ray Okpara ‘Midnight Protein’ (Andrea Oliva Remix)

Swiss DJ Andrea Oliva kicks the year off with a remix of Ray Okpara’s ‘Midnight Protein’, out now on Mobilee Records. This house track showcases Andrea’s inescapable talent, with a hard hitting snare and captivating bass line which makes for a bouncy industrial tech-house sound. Ray Okpara’s ‘Midnight Protein’ takes flight with some serious percussive swing, adding subtle acid synths to a sultry low-slung bassline, while Andrea Oliva’s remix of the same casts off a layer for the staple techy house ingredients of drums and percussion.

Andrea has released on some of the most prominent electronic and underground labels such as Cadenza, Saved, Moon Harbour Records, Viva Music and Defected. His 2012 releases ‘Click Off’ EP on Cadenza and ‘Scene’ on Be As One both saw him take a top 10 Beatport spot leading him to become the most charted artist on Resident Advisor in 2012 . He topped the Beatport charts with his remix of Luciano’s ‘Rise Of Angels’ which fast became the 2013 summer anthem of Ibiza and was Cadenza’s biggest selling record and Andrea continued to receive championing support from all corners in 2013.

This year Andrea will be holding residency at Italy’s infamous Cocorico, Basel’s one and only Nordstern and will be returning to the colony for his residency at ANTS, Ibiza. Watch out for further releases, a heavy touring schedule and more unforgettable clubbing experiences at the hands of Andrea Oliva throughout 2014!
