Besides being a record label and club night, Sentinel Island Disco is a DJ duo that has its roots in Amsterdam. Moreover, it is a fictional island where the inhabitants seem to have eccentric party rituals. If you want to know what that looks like, you'll have to dock at Sentinel Island. Someone like Barbara Boeing or San Soda likes to go there too. Think obscure soca, ecstatic (afro) disco and deep percussive grooves from Sentinel's dark jungles.
Sentinel Island Disco's YouTube channel is well known in the diggers scene by the rare gems they unearth from around the globe and the many DJ edits they produce from them.
Their latest discovery is a cassette from the Ivorian singer Hamed Farras, which they re-released this year on their own label, including a modern dance-floor interpretation of the original 1991 tape.
As DJ's, they are not afraid to mix these obscurities with classic Detroit and Chicago influenced house and techno, resulting in dynamic, energetic and uplifting sets that have caused them to steadily and irrevocably make their way on to the much deserved bigger festival stages, from Down the Rabbit Hole and Lowlands to Awakenings festival, as well as clubs all over the globe.
Together with Illustrator and VJ Mirjam, the visual force behind the project, they organize intimate club nights in club Lovelee in Amsterdam, where all senses are stimulated.
