From their first outings which took place in New York back in 2014 ID has traversed the globe. Regularly throwing parties in United States, Dominican Republic, Uruguay, Argentina, Puerto Rico, Colombia, Ecuador, Russia, and of course more frequently in Barcelona ID plays host to only the best artists from the world of house, techno and minimal and major players such as the members of RPR Soundsystem, Onur Ozer, Laurine and Cecilio, Oshana, Lamache, the list is never ending and the same goes for the creative touches that they add to each of their stunning events.
In an ode to their favourite season ID have devised SummID, an exciting day to night concept that will take place at the absolutely breath-taking hillside locale of Mas Corts. Ordinarily a beautiful multi roomed gastronomic destination this period venue will be transformed into a playground for Barcelona’s discerning clubbers. With the venue having its roots in sumptuous eats once the shuttle buses deliver the party people to the venue there will be an array food markets, bars selling a range of bars offering mouth-watering drinks and cocktails to keep the dancers hydrated throughout the day and night.
Now that the scene has been set we can concentrate on the tasty prospect of who will be soundtracking SummID’s first event on Saturday, July 9th. As you might expect, an unreal selection of diggers will be on hand to put the finely tuned Funktion One soundsystem from Audiophonik through its paces. The mini festival that will run for 12+ hours will be headed up by none other than Gene On Earth and his high energy slabs of minimal leaning house. His Limousine Dreams imprint has been home to some of the genres standout moments and the sheer vibes that are propelled from both Gene and the speakers when he is in action.
Closely following will be Melliflow co-founder Alexandra an artist that has been on the ID radar for some time. Through her wide-ranging sets around the globe Alexandra has become an essential part of the world minimal community. Completing the upper part of the line-up is Phonoteque and Cartullis member Z@p. Also, affiliated with Alexandra’s Melliflow imprint his leftfield selections have been blowing up parties all over the place and he now has his sights set firmly on SummID. This wouldn’t be an ID party without their resident OZ aka Zrg AK will be on hand to set up the party nicely for the heavy hitters that come later. For this first event, there will a special back to back set from Rod J and Rafael Delgado and a set from rising star Monile.
Details have also been released of the second part to SummID that will take place on Saturday, August 27th. It is safe to say that the next edition will be just as big as the first, perhaps bigger with there being a Perlon theme. Topping the bill this time around will be Japanese minimal master and the Perlon artist will not be alone at the helm of the ID turntables. Joining the ID debutant will be second half of Melliflow Vera and Ukraine’s Closer resident Borys. As always Oz aka Zrg Ak will be setting the tone for the party as well as a b2b from Emilio and Nut Records boss Lyonel. This fantastic SummID series of parties will conclude with ID’s 8th birthday on Saturday, October 15th but you will need to keep your ears and eyes open for more details.
