Pier Pressure

Joseph Ray

11th May

The stars aligned and we are proud to present our opening party Headliner, grammy-award winner – Joseph Ray

Joseph is an exceptional producer and we’ve been playing his tracks since we started Pier Pressure. Seminal tracks Changing Lanes, Cos of You and Give me a Reason are just a taste of what we are looking forward to hearing on the pier. Last years live set from ABGT500 in Los Angeles was one of the most emotive sets we’ve ever heard. Low slung beats with epic break down moments left us stunned. Since that set we have been desperate to book him.

One third of global drum and bass/dubstep band NERO, Joseph Ray has been releasing tracks on Anjunadeep for 5 years. This one really is not to be missed.

25th August

Rewind to last summer, “storm Jethro” blew a sell-out show off the Pier and into Aruba, Cristoph literally took the roof off the venue, playing an extended set and leaving only one thing on our minds, we need to experience this on the pier…

This summer we’re bringing you Part Two, Cristoph, August Bank Holiday Sunday, the biggest weekend of the year, our biggest party to date…. It doesn’t get better than this!

The Dutch producer has established himself as a leading name in the world of dance and electronic music through his prolific output and a globe-trotting touring schedule. After kicking off his career with a host of impressive releases on Enhanced Recordings, Anjunabeats and Armada, he has since released three highly-regarded albums. His latest album ‘Infinita’, defined Estiva as a musician as he pushes his Progressive House / Techno sound to new heights whilst never abandoning the core, club-ready foundations that his sound is built upon. His success found him performing at clubs and festivals around the world, including the likes of Tomorrowland, Ultra, Creamfields and Dreamstate.

With Colorize, Estiva has become a label regular, delivering a host of superb original productions & first-rate remixes. His track Infinita was voted Colorize tune of 2023 and hammered by the likes of Marsh, Simon Doty and Eli & Fur. He has toured extensively as part of Colorize’s lineup through the United States and in Europe.

We can’t wait for this one. In September we welcome, Estiva

Simon Doty

Our SOLD OUT closing party with the man, Simon Doty.  This one rocked.  He had the whole place locked into a groove from the moment he went on.  Such a great DJ and producer.  That guy can party and he joined us for the whole night, rocking out at the afters.  We hope we can get him back soon.

Check out some live sets from the day

Who has a storm in July? Well we did!  Emergency action was taken and we had to move indoors.  Thanks to Aruba we could roll on through.  Huge crowd for one of electronic musics biggest artists.  Cristoph delivered a heavy weight set.  We think he enjoyed it too as he wouldn’t get off the decks!  The HSWRK crowd did their job.

Listen back to two amazing live sets from that day

Jody Wisternoff

A true electronic music legend.  Jody Wisternoff is at the top of his game. He gave Jethro a run for his money in the hype stakes!  The Anjunadeep family descended on Bournemouth Pier for this one.  A packed terrace with our emergency rain cover meant our party grooved for this one.  Serious vibes.  Thank you Jody.
