Arctic Monkeys team up with former member

Andy Nicolson makes appearance at Ibiza Rocks

Ibiza Rocks played host to a Sheffield reunion last night (August 12) when Arctic MonkeysMatt Helders teamed up with ex-bandmate Andy Nicolson to DJ.

Steel city preacher Jon McLure also performed live with his band Reverend And The Makers outdoors on a stage by the poolside at the island’s pioneering indie/dance night.

Helders and Nicolson played two hip-hop heavy sets over the course of the night – the first one outside by the pool which started with House Of Pain‘s ‘Jump Around’, the second was indoors at the club’s official aftershow and included Dead Prez‘s ‘Hip-Hop’, MIA‘s ‘Galang’ and ‘Fix Up Look Sharp’ by Dizzee Rascal.

Hundreds of holidaying British punters flocked to the Ibiza Rocks Hotel to watch The Rev, who was also supported by wideboy indie popsters The Click Click and Club NME DJs.

Ibiza Rocks continues next Tuesday (August 19) with The Streets playing live.
