The Warehouse Project’s final run at Store Street finally got its first full weekend under its belt with a genre-busting night of electronic music on Friday with Annie Mac Presents.
Early on we were treated to a chugging full-body house workout from the 2 Bears, where the two burly men from London warmed up the crowd with some really good house music.
Next up was L-Vis 1990 who is one of the most exciting young DJs in the UK, his bass heavy set took in elements of garage, electro, UK funky, dubstep, techno and many other sounds and he brought his a-game with a live dubstep PA performance with The Neon Dreams.
Annie Mac and Ms Dynamite were on hand to raise the roof of Store Street and Annie couldn’t get enough of the atmosphere as she did a little bit of crowd surfing for Jack Beats and even played a unannounced set at the after party at Afterlife until the wee-hours.
To finish the night Jack Beats unleashed a cacophony of electro, techno, house and other odds and sods for their set. Jack Beats represent part of the new wave of British house music. Wobbly basslines, big breakdowns and edgy accapella’s are cut, copied and pasted together to create a floor-filling brand of house. To finish they unleashed a bootleg of Beattles ‘All you need is love’ to send the happy punters off on an air of early morning optimism.
Well, it will be all kicking off again this weekend with Lord of the Trance Armin Van Buuren who will no doubt have the Store Street crowd reaching for the lasers with his sold out show on Friday and then there’s a full-on house session with James Zabiela, Nic Fanciulli and Derrick May on Saturday.
We’re pleased to announce that we’ll be giving away a pair of tickets away for Armin’s sold out show on Friday. All you have to do is answer a simple question below. Post the answer to our HBF Facebook page on the post and we’ll choose and winner and get your name added to the guestlist.
