MILK & SUGAR led the charge of vocal house from Germany two decades ago and became deeply influential on the house music scene ever since. With the arrival of 2017, Mike K and Steven Harding celebrate 20 years of creating some of the world’s most innovative house music tracks, a catalog that includes popular global hits.
MILK & SUGAR have a knack for delivering what many consider to be perfect club mixes — songs bursting with the power to tear the roof off any venue. One of their biggest hits, “Let The Sun Shine”, has been a career milestone, vaulting in 2003 straight from the Ibiza clubs to number one on the Billboard dance chart and the Top 20 of the UK pop charts. The track became a house music milestone and an anthem for MILK & SUGAR — their signature song — and crowds of dancers and partiers around the world still demand it. Among their many other popular and successful productions was their break-through single “Higher & Higher”, a 2000 international smash that helped forge their reputations as house music masters.
Their releases have been played and supported ever since by names like David Morales, Tonny Humpries (also known as the “Godfather of House Music”), Frankie Knuckles, Dennis Ferrer and by countless house music-loving DJs all around the globe.
As DJs, producers and label owners, MILK & SUGAR have won several accolades, such as the German and Italian DJ Award, and numerous golden records. Their tour calendar is often jam-packed with gigs on every continent. With their unique house sound, they have heated up dancefloors of the best clubs and festivals around the world, including Pacha, Space and Amnesia in Ibiza or Green Valley and Anzu in Brazil.
Over the past several years, MILK & SUGAR have continued to supply dance floors with a steady stream of powerful hits, serving both as sought after remixers and as creators of uniquely original productions. They include “Hey (Nah Neh Nah)” – Milk & Sugar & Vaya Con Dios, “Stay Around”, “Canto Del Pilon”, and “My Lovin” – Milk & Sugar with Barbara Tucker. Mike and Steven also run the music label Milk & Sugar Recordings, which was already honored with a German Dance Award as best independent label. Their hot-selling Club Cuts, House Nation and Beach Sessions compilation series have proven to be hugely popular.
In the tremendously competitive, fast-moving and ever-changing world of contemporary dance music, MILK & SUGAR celebrate 20 years at the top. That’s no small accomplishment in this industry. Their unique brand of energetic and irresistible music not only has a proud and distinguished history — it has a highly anticipated future.

YOU By TEN IBIZA
Oriol Calvo & Rayco Santos
Puro ADN balearic corre por las venas de este proyecto que nace en 2013 fruto de la pasión, el respeto y la admiración de sus fundadores, Oriol Calvo y Micky, por la Isla de Ibiza.
#TENIbiza tiene un flow propio que va más allá de una manera de entender el ocio, la fiesta o la música. Es un concepto de comunidad; una hermandad hecha a la medida de cualquiera que vibre con el auténtico Balearic Sound, el sonido de la Isla. Un sonido moderno y actual, pero que huye de etiquetas, clases, géneros y procedencias.
#TENIbiza solo cree en que la música es la magia de la vida, un lenguaje universal que nos conecta. Con esta premisa, adapta su formato al día o la noche, a un club, un festival o un beach club. Siempre cuidando los detalles, siempre sintiendo la pista desde dentro, y siempre creando atmósferas únicas que generan experiencias únicas. De esta inquietud por adaptarnos a todos los formatos nace YOU, un evento que combina atardeceres bailando, un buen cocktail, energia y actitud, siendo una versión de TEN, si cabe, más elegante, refinada y con registros entre el Deep-House, Funky-House, melodias y atmósferas de lo más envolventes.
Nuestra imagen, inspirada en la escena urbana de las ciudades más cosmopolitas del mundo conjugada con la autenticidad y la sencillez de Ibiza, nos ha llevado a tener residencias estables en los mejores clubes de la Isla como Pacha Ibiza, Lío Club Cabaret, Heart, ME Ibiza Rooftop y Destino Ibiza Resort.
#TENIbiza es también un referente a la hora de representar por el mundo a Ibiza; de ahí sus residencias en ME Cancún , ME Los Cabos Baja California o su paso con Showcases propios en citas internacionales tan relevantes como el BPM o la WMC Miami, asi como en Clubes de todo el mundo, con fechas durante todo el año.rnrn
Por la cabina de TEN Ibiza han pasado artistas de la talla de H.O.S.H., Mendo, Purple Disco Machine, Edu Imbernon, Chelina Manuhutu, Los Suruba, Dj RAE, Betoko, Camilo Franco, Cuartero, Martijn Ten Velden, Baum, Alex Kentucky, o Sara de Araujo, entre muchos otros…
Ahora solo nos faltas tú.
Days Like Nights
Modern day composer
‘Composition’ is the core of any electronic producers work – the creative process that forms a distinctive sound to them, and only them. In a landscape of talent and technology however, to be truly unique is more than ever a rare quality. Eelke Kleijn, Rotterdam-based music maker, is that exceptional example. A talent crossing the border from producer into modern day composer, he has honed a natural flair over a 10-year career but now is proving his moment. With peers and tastemakers standing up to take note of his original production, they have still only seen the half of his capacity. As the projects get bigger and better, excitement for the young Dutchman is reaching boiling point across the globe.
This raw talent was evident at the tender age of just 20 years old, as Eelke emerged on the scene with debut tracks ‘4.5 Billion Years / Knowledge Base’ on Segment Records. Deep, original tracks they were, but they also marked something so much more – the start of a decade long journey. Going on to work with some of the greatest imprints in dance music he garnered the support of Ultra to EMI, Global Underground to 3 Beat and Spinnin’ to Sudbeat and all before half a decade was up. Always one to have sole creativity of course, he learnt from these labels and it took just a few short years to set up his own venture, Outside The Box Music. Built from the ground up, OTB has gone on to release major artists from a variety of genres and not to mention Eelke’s own smashes, ‘Levensgeneiter, ‘Doordrammer’ and in 2012 ‘Eenvoud’.
Composing is always at the fore of Eelke’s consciousness, but being the all round professional he is, his live shows still never take the backseat. Complete with the back catalogue of epic productions his sets are packed with anthemic floor fillers that please the crowds the world over. From Asia to South America and Australia to his home in the Netherlands, Eelke has graced the stages in the finest of venues. With dates upcoming in all four corners of the globe, Eelke is bringing his music truly worldwide to hoards of smiling faces with hands in the air.
Creating records that strike a chord with music fans from all walks of life is what Eelke does best. Meticulously striving for beats and harmonies that lose the listener in a track is what he drove towards with signature tune, ‘Ein Tag Am Strand’. With the melody set years back, he developed and honed the production around it, waiting for the perfect moment to drop it to the world. As a deeper sound prevailed in all aspects of dance music in the summer of ‘13, it was the impeccable timing for it to be heard. Speaking to DMC World Magazine, Eelke detailed the simple yet pertinent reason behind putting out the track this year: “’Ein Tag’ is all about feeling good. It’s a happy record, one that will make you smile when you listen to it. Dance music sometimes takes itself too seriously. This track just plays with all of that, and on top of that it’s catchy as hell!”
