Earlier this week Sankeys sacked long-term Tribal Sessions resident Darius Syrossian for bringing the club and brand into disrepute.
It would seem Darius spoke out about the club in less-than glowing terms when his fans had been turned away from Sankeys London.
Of course, not getting into a club is par the course these days, hello Felix? Anyway, that apparently led the club to sacking the DJ.
In the ensuing back and forth online we haven’t really gotten to the bottom of the story. But today Syrossian has now released an official statement via DJ Mag telling his side of the story, and announced a slew of dates in Ibiza with Santé and Sidney Charles, who have said they won’t play at Sankeys again either.
“Firstly I would like to say that I am truly overwhelmed with the support from all the people out there on this matter, and I want everyone to know that Sankeys is an amazing club and I absolutely loved that place. Hand on heart, I gave every ounce of energy and my absolute all for Sankeys and Tribal Sessions, and these developments have been an absolute shock to me.
“If Sankeys believe I intentionally brought the club into disrepute by highlighting the issues that are detrimental to it, then so be it. But I hold my head high because I know of the hard work, love and dedication I poured into the place. I wish all at Sankeys the best and I am excited to see what happens next, and I’m proud of my bros Sidney Charles & Santé for sticking by me on this. Again, I cannot thank the public enough for the amazing support. I have said it many times before, the only people I care about in this industry are those on the dancefloor! And that doesn’t change. Big love to all.
“We will soon announce more info regarding our Ibiza shows, a replacement Manchester date and other Road to Ibiza dates throughout Europe. Stay tuned and remember… #BROSOVEREUROS!”
