Welcome to The Warehouse Project and what a welcome it is! With some of the hottest DJs making a very special end to September.
With the line up announced just a couple of days ago, the excitement is running through my finger tips as I write this and think about what exactly is to come on the evening of Saturday 29th September. With nothing but bad weather and bleak surroundings over the past weeks this surely did spice things up for a lot of us.
After his recent trip to Manchester’s Sound Control for his “Don’t break your love tour” in January, we couldn’t keep him away! Our friend Nicolas Jaar headlining at the #WHP12 opening weekend! What a way to end his recent trip around Europe in our very our Manchester!
Jaar will be making an appearance with several big names, one of which will always steal my heart, Maceo Plex. After recently seeing him DJ at Parklife and not moving from the Crosstown Rebels‘ tent for his whole set, I’m really looking forward to what cheeky tricks he pulls out the decks. Maceo Plex completely took off with his new album “Life Index” back in 2011. How we he top it off this year?
Having not yet made it to the new venue in Old Trafford, I am excited to see what this space has to offer. Instead of hearing whisperings from friends of “massive new rooms” and “epic chill out areas” compared to the previous Store Street venue (RIP). The venue has had since Easter to re-cooperate and re-vamp itself all over again for the massive night that’s ahead of us.
Maya Jane Coles takes the stage with a back-to-back set with the German spirits of Heidi to accompany her. MJC was last at WHP on the Easter Sunday, and let’s keep it catholic and say oh god did she smash it then. As described by our writer James:
“Kicking the hell out of Manchester in her incredible set.” James, DMM
I definitely will be there, front row to see this sexy little minx. Don’t expect yodelling from the hilltops from Heidi but her bringing a dirty bounce to the female double act, adding a real mix to the B2B set.
With my experience from previous trips to The Warehouse Project you can expect to see a real combination of people and you will end up meeting some real west heads. Make sure you don’t make the error of wearing white pumps or shoes that you have any liking for, as you won’t be wearing white pumps once you leave. To the ladies: no flimsy clothes, short skirts or dresses as you want to be wearing something you can move in – as you will definitely be doing a lot of it!
Get there early if you want to catch the early sets:
- Four Tet (DJ Set)
- Ben Klock
- Julio Bashmore
- Joy Orbison & Jackmaster B2B
- Jacques Greene
- Andrew Weatherall
- Soul Clap
- Justin Robertson
- Greg Lord
Hopefully Seth Troxler will get as involved with the crowd just as much as he did back in 2010 at the WHP when he was doing some crazy dance moves on stage with Jamie Jones. With Troxler’s musical influences hailing from the whirring of spaceships and the chirping of crickets, I wonder how many grasshoppers he will pull out of the bag!
The tickets are now on sale priced at £25 so it’s well worth opening your wallets for. Gets yours here:
With such an impressive line up, its hard not to miss and so it begins, the 83 day countdown to The Warehouse Project 2012.
Don’t get lost!
