After another blinding year of inflicting rightfully RONG doings on the Manchester club scene, it has quickly crept up to that time of year again as we prepare to mark our coming of age. As a brand made by clubbers for clubbers, a prerequisite of our party policy is to listen to what you RONG’uns want. After the roaring success of last years ‘you say, they play’ birthday vote campaign, we figured ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’, which prompted its return for our second birthday bonanza.
For the past 3-months you have been busy voting for what can only be described as one beast of a second birthday party. We have literally been BURSTING with excitement to announce this monster and you have most certainly done us proud in the selecting our RONGEST line-up to-date! And so, the time has FINALLY come to unveil the chosen ones…
As voted by you, the headliner for our second birthday bosh-up is one of the biggest and most current high flyers of trance; an artist firmly established in A-list elite, who is set to continue his journey ever higher up the ladder…RONG proudly presents the outstanding DJ/producer and Irish charm of trance – Mr JOHN O’CALLAGHAN. John’s high-energy trance mix coupled with a highly refined precision mixing style has seen him surge up the DJ ranks and become a worldwide line-up essential at the biggest festivals, arena shows and venues across the globe. Get ready as the captain of ‘team140’ prepares to literally blow the roof off Venus with his trademark no-holds-barred demolition of the decks, to put the BOSH right into our birthday celebrations.
You would definitely be a RONG’un to miss this rare opportunity to get up-close and personal with the hottest property of trance in such an intimate, underground and unprecedented clubbing experience – a refreshing alternative to today’s typical large scale arena shows.
Joining the main man, you have chosen one of our past headline artists and undoubtably one of the hottest tech/trance producers in the world. Over the last decade his productions and remixes receive massive support from the likes of Paul Oakenfold, Eddie Halliwell, Tiesto, Armin van Buuren and Paul van Dyk. RONG welcomes the return of the highly regarded UK DJ/producer – John Askew. After the huge successes of his singles ‘’Vellum’, ‘The Door’ and ‘New Dimension’ and ‘Chime’, John has gone on to deliver a catalogue of big singles including ‘Nothing Left Between Us’, ‘Fade to Black’, ‘Bored of You, Bored of Me’ and lets not forget his recent remix of Simon Patterson’s ‘Smack’ that has resonated across dance floors globally, played by every major Trance DJ in the scene. Aside from his DJ/production successes, John has also firmly made his stamp behind the scenes working closely with trance legend Paul Oakenfold as a highly affiliated and member of his team.
Adding further fuel to fire is a DJ that needs little introduction to the RONG camp. A clear favourite in the poll for the second consecutive year after quite frankly smashing the granny out of last years birthday celebrations, and confirming his status as a proper RONG’un behind the decks. We welcome the return of Irish legend and fellow ‘team 140’ player – Bryan Kearney. Bryan has firmly established himself on the international dance scene, being one of few DJs that have stayed true to their musical passion and original roots. His cutting edge sets containing the best in upfront driven music with the emphasis always on energy and the unexpected has earned him a loyal army of followers worldwide. Bring on round two of the Kearnage!
Also joining the bill is the rapidly rising star of trance and RONG favourite, DJ/producer – Chris Metcalfe. In a short space of time Chris has firmly made his mark on the EDM scene with a string of successive productions, which have received unprecedented support from the Armada camp. Chris is fast becoming a regular name on international line-ups, as well being a firm favourite on home turf playing regularly up and down the country.FINALLY, putting the finishing touches to our birthday BOSH-up is RONG main man James Rigby, RONG residents Liam Wilson and Nik Mac, and Gatecrasher resident Nick Coulson. Room two will be taken hostage by the RONG residents, plus special guests.
SO, the votes have spoken and the results are by far the RONGEST yet! Question is, are you ready to head to the RONG side of the raving horizon with us?!… it is our birthday after all!!
