London-based hip hop brand Applebum comes to Sankeys from 21st June to closing on 13th September. And having hosted Snoop Dogg last year, who performed under his moniker DJ Snoopadelic, Sankeys is no stranger to hip hop royalty.

Line-ups are out, and heading the charge is none other than sidekick of The Fresh Prince (aka Will Smith) and multi-platinum selling R&B producer, DJ Jazzy Jeff, plus mixing master, Grandmaster Flash, soulful singers of ‘No Diggity', Blackstreet, legendary hip hop producer, DJ Premier, acclaimed turntablist, DJ Yoda, ‘Gangster’s Paradise’ rapper, Coolio, and hip hop pioneers, Sugarhill Gang. They’ll be joined by the equally noteworthy Slum Village, DJ Yella (NWA), Nightmares on Wax, The Furious Five, DJ Craze and Doorly, among many more.

Residents confirmed for the party's Ibiza debut also include Aussie veteran Mo'funk, DJ talent Mr Doris, British deck master Patrick Nazemi, musical lyricist Harley Maxwell, Applebum resident DJ and producer Little Prince, and Junior Brown & Deejay REFF who are united by their eclectic tastes across everything from old school and funk, to hip hop and disco. Elsewhere, Applebum will be joining forces with influential hip hop crews from the UK including Supa Dupa Fly, Gin & Juice, Brooklyn Zoo, Shoreditch and Cheese on Bread.

As a scene setter for what will be the home to hip hop and R&B throughout the 2016 season, imagine B-boying in the Lab, graffiti on the roof, MC's battling in the DJ Box and scratch turntablists uniting its basement crowd. Furthermore, Applebum is promising to break down genre divides as it's anticipated that some of the biggest names within house and techno, who have a love and affinity for the scene, could be performing exclusive hip hop sets. That is going to be something very special indeed.

Get ready for Tuesday nights to take you from the golden era of hip hop right through to present day.
