Widely recognised for pushing the boundaries and being first to introduce some of the most diverse, fresh and influential talents to the White Isle over the years, We Are Rockstars have joined forces with Noisey and Stormzy to present an exclusive monthly #MERKY residency at the World famous Ibiza Rocks hotel.
New icon of the scene Stormzy will takeover four incredible shows for his exclusive monthly #MERKY residency, kicking off Friday 3rd June, which will feature some more of the hottest talents in the scene; WSTRN, J Hus, Coco, Big Narstie and three of BBC’s hottest DJ’s, Charlie Sloth, Mistajam and Toddla T, with more special guests to be announced.
Stormzy said: “It’s gonna be good vibes, sick artists and some of the best UK talent. Hope to see you there.”
Joining Stormzy on the first show in June is Radio 1 and 1Xtra’s Charlie Sloth and BBC Sound of 2016 nominees WSTRN. Sloth declared “A Star is born” after Stormzy delivered his untouchable verse on the ‘Fire In The Booth Cypher’ – a key part of the surge in Stormzy’s recent success.
Charlie says of the summer residency, “Can’t wait to play the legendary Ibiza Rocks Hotel, it’s gonna be a ZOO!! Party animal central and the line up is insane!!”.
Completing the line up is West London collective WSTRN whose debut single “In2” caught fire last year scoring the trio a Top 5 UK chart hit.
WSTRN said: “We’re really looking forward to shutting down Ibiza in June. The line up’s mad so you already know it’s gonna be one to remember. Big up Stormzy and Charlie Sloth… Hope everybody knows how to party!”
July will see Stormzy joined by producer, Radio 1 DJ and long-standing friend and champion of We Are Rockstars Toddla T. Summer wouldn’t be the same without him and the feeling is mutual as Toddla says: “I love Ibiza Rocks Hotel; the staff, the ravers are wicked and the fact Coco ended up shuffling on Bora Bora beach for 3 days non stop was worth the last trip alone.”
Also joining the July line up is J Hus, who, having already scored nominations for MOBO’s Best Newcomer and BBC Sound of 2016 plus racking up over 6 million streams a piece for singles “Lean and Bop” and “Dem Boy Paigon”, is spearheading a new wave of young British rap acts in a big way.
In August it’s MistaJam and Big Narstie who will command the We Are Rockstars stage with Stormz, and it sounds like the crowd can expect big things from Big Narstie: “I can’t wait to bring BDL to We Are Rockstars Ibiza on 5th August! Are you ready for the mayhem and the babes?! Let’s have it!”
As well as Stormzy, a host of further line-up additions to the We Are Rockstars line up are to be made over the coming weeks. Keep your eyes peeled! This is definitely going to be #MERKY!
