Bitch was heading into the big leagues and moving faster than “that” footballer in to Imogen Thomas’ penalty box. Our regular Saturday nights in Sankeys were becoming an institution in Manchester bringing the sexiest crowds, the biggest acts in house and electro and the finest parade of ‘Bitch girls’ that Manchester’s ever seen. Things were flying and we hosted some serious parties with DJs including Laidback Luke, Benny Benassi, Mark Knight, Dirty South and many, many more. We were riding high and loving every minute of it and people were beginning to stop and ask themselves “who’s that Bitch from Manchester taking over the house scene?”
We had coverage in Mixmag, the biggest dance music magazine of our generation, and this was quite a moment for us as I had a collection of Mixmags at home that would of kept the fire burning for a few years and to have our night in there and be featured was a very special moment! A lot of people were interested in us now and it was time to take the brand on a little road trip, and so the Bitch tours began.
We had nights at some of the biggest and best clubs in the UK and what happened to us next was beyond our wildest dreams. We were offered the second room of Brixton Academy for the London leg of the Swedish House Mafia’s ‘One Night Only’ tour. There it was for all to see, a flyer with the biggest names in house music and the Bitch name right next to them. This was one of the best nights of our lives and one that we wouldn’t forget in a hurry.
The monthly nights were rocking and rolling the DJs were packing out Sankeys and things were pretty much perfect, we were the North West’s premier house and electro night but things were about to get even more interesting. We felt like it was time to move on and make a step out of our comfort zone so we called time at our birthplace, packed our bags and in the words of Peter Kay fu*ked off!!!!
The next stage for us was pretty obvious, we had been visiting a certain little white island in Spain for years and always imagined that we could throw parties there one day and you know what… in 2009 we did just that!!! Bitch was made for Ibiza, the beautiful crowds, the bitch girls and the music was perfect for the clubbing heaven and Bitch ventured over there to smash its back doors in! Bitch boat parties are infamous and are still talked about to this day (if you ask nicely we may even bring them out for 2012) and we held down a weekly residency at Boho going went head to head with the heavyweights of the Island leaving our mark on Ibiza’s crowds.
Soon was back to lovely Manchester (insert cough) and we were about to turn 3 years old and started to embark on the biggest challenge we had been faced with yet… Filling the world’s number one venue (in our eyes anyway) The Warehouse Project. Eric Prydz was the headline act and Bitch was turning 3 under that train station in Manchester where only the biggest and best brands had come and taken over. Now we had been doing this for 3 years, years had disappeared quicker than you could imagine. We were a fully functioning company with an office, staff, bills to pay, accounts to keep, what happened to just putting parties on for fun hey? (that’s a blatant lie we now have more fun than you could imagine but got to moan somewhere!)
