High Tide have revealed the long awaited details for their first Boat Party of 2015. The Sunday of the Easter Bank Holiday Weekend will see the High Tide residents Garry Benneton and Dan Reid take to the seas with Dirtybird’s Justin Martin
on their boat’s upper deck, along with Southampton house promoters Emotive making a return to handle proceedings down below.
High Tide have been known around Southampton for bringing quality house music to our local waters for numerous years. Hailing from San Francisco, DJ and producer Justin Martin’s laid back west coast grooves will be the ideal soundtrack to another venture out on the waves. It won’t be Justin’s first appearance in Southampton, having played a special pizza party
at Switch during last year’s Freshers’ Week. Justin, along with Barclay Crenshaw, more commonly known as Claude VonStroke, are co-founders of Dirtybird recordings, one of the most prolific cross genre labels in recent years. Justin is no stranger to capturing the vibe at outdoor events, a skill that has helped make the legendary Dirtybird barbecues in San Francisco so famous.
On the lower deck Emotive will be also be making their Southampton debut for 2015. The house collective had previously been on hiatus for a number of years, but made a return to Southampton in November last year with a relaunch party at Attik featuring Terry Farley. Veterans of the Southampton scene, Emotive have been responsible for bringing some of the biggest names to Southampton; no doubt the lower deck is in safe hands.
The High Tide Easter Bank Holiday Boat Party will take place on Sunday 5th April. Tickets are available here.
