Warehouse re-opens to huge props…

So another summer is over, which always leaves a tear in most party goers eyes, but not when your a fully fledged member of the the London inventive music scene. The capital has seen many a club come and go over they years but only the cream rises to the top. The Warehouse can safely say its had its up and downs but a re-opening this past weekend certainly proved its a contender to stick around for quite come time.
When asked to visit such Warehouse space your always going to be up for a nosey, but when you add Kerri Chandler to the fray and a new sound and lighting system for the US house legend to sink his skills into, your nigh on stupid to turn it down. Starting with the lighting rig – it was somewhat a focal point and centre piece for the venue. The green rays that bounced off the brickwork married perfect with the subtle tones of the residents Jaxx and Danny Bayley’s deep house set. The vibrant and tight mix was a perfect warm up for the main man himself to grace the stage.
The legend that is Kerri Chandler is very partial to a extended set, this was no different as he played his classic US portrayal down to a tee going until 7.30am. His mixing itself was something of an experience never mind dropping the ever present bombs of good friend MK with his huge ‘Burning’ and the huge Julio Bashmore track ‘Au Seve’. The larger than life character also made an impact with the crowd playing of his every move and beat.
Not shying away from mentioning the beloved audience, they certainly played their part warming the venue for their huge line ups to follow. Hands in the air moments were a plenty and the punchy soundsytem attracted everyone from the terrace onto the dance-floor like a good system should do. Its safe to say that the owners and promoters had done their homework on their opening soiree and with well thought out plans of the venue (ie well placed bar and toilets) it was easy for everyone to get around. A job well done if you ask me.
Look out for other big events coming up in the next month with Lee Foss, Filthy Rich and more.
