I’ll be honest, I don’t normally subscribe the the open mouthed reactions line-ups get in clubland any more. Call me too long in the tooth, jaded, or just a miserable bellend, but to be honest they never really get me frothing at the mouth any more. The Warehouse Project just changed that.
Their opening weekend is beyond obscene. Friday kicks things off with a Rinse showcase which packs the likes of Katy B , Skream , Diplo, Zinc, Roska and Plastician into a bass music feast, but Saturday is just ridiculous for House and techno fans. Nicolas jaar playing live, Maya Jane Coles back to back with Heidi, Maceo Plex, Four Tet Dj Set, Seth troxler, Julio Bashmore, Bicep and fuckloads more in a ten hour assault on the senses.
Whatever your musical persuasuion, that weekend is HUGE. Beggars belief what the rest of the programme will include.
“Dusky have tapped into something, a universal – an essence that excites DJs and clubbers across the dance divide. Lee Foss included their track ‘Tyto Alba’ on his recent RA podcast; Jamie Jones dropped it at DC10 closing in Ibiza; Paul Woolford and Sasha are rinsing their tracks; bass bods T.Williams, Loefah and Boddika are pushing ‘em; and let’s not forget plays from the Radio 1 bigwigs, like Pete Tong, Toddla T, Rob Da Bank, hell, even Zane Lowe.” – DJ Magazine
Due to Djing near enough every weekend horribly unsociable hours, I don’t go out much in Liverpool. One gaffe I make an exception for is Discoteca Poca. I’ve reviewed their greatness before and there’s always fun to be had when they turn the hold in the Shipping Forecast into a great little rave den. Following on hot on the heels of Dyed Soundorom’s cracker last month, they’ve got Dusky on board this time, the duo that have ditched prog to great effect with some groove heavy assaults. I’ll ‘sadly’ be running wild on Las Ramblas for the Off Sonar festivities, but if you are in Liverpool you know what to do.
