Cometh the hour, cometh a new venue in London. However this time I have a feeling that this one will not just a be a flash in the pan outfit like a lot of others we have witnessed over the past few years. Upon getting an invite down to the re-opening I was just thinking that the city that rarely sleeps could do with another addition to its plethora of venues.
Its safe to say that this was an invite I’m certainly happy I accepted. Raw brickwork plastered the inside with a lengthy bar hedonistic lighting and strobes which bounced from wall to wall. The soundsytem looked beefy with a raised booth that over looked the main dancefloor. Money well spent so far. The underground theme was is full effect here as the deep rich tones of the residents Jaxx and Danny Bayley welcomed the punters, taking their place on the floor ready for what was to be one of the sets of the year so far.
Kerri Chandler doesn’t need an introduction, however we should give him one. The US legend has made a strong comeback over the past few years with his residency at DC10 being a new home for him. London has also played a part in his resistance as he has come to the forefront of the house scene once again. Also on hand to play an extended set his track selection left no stone unturned, dropping edits of old and new.
Tracks from the likes of Julio Bashmore ‘Au Veve’ and MK’s ‘Burning’ we sure fire hits and certainly got the Warehouse fan faithful on their toes with their hands in the air. The crowd may I say were unbelievable all night, adding to the spice on the spice of the music and venue this was night not to forget. All in all, this was a special re-opening for the club who also have some huge events lined up. The likes of Dan Ghenacia, Lee Foss and Alexis Raphael all arrive at the venue over September and October and on the back of this event I bet they can’t wait to get involved.
