The WHP Review Easter Weekend

Features - Freeq'd Out


Spoilt for choice at the WareHouse Project's mammoth Easter offering I finally decided on checking out Saturday nights line up.  It was a difficult decision but with names like Laurent Garnier, Carl Graig and Tiger and Woods on the list I just couldn't miss out.  (Gone are the days when I could go out three nights in a row, but in this instance I have to say I was tempted)

After whipping up some Detroit techno Laurent Garnier was later joined by Stephane “Scan X” Dri and Benjamin Rippert on the keyboards and between them they kept the crowd in the main room entertained and on their techno tippy toes with a live one off electronic performance.

You couldn’t have a finer salute to 20 years of Planet E, unless of course you add the label’s founder: world class DJ and producer Carl Craig, with a sprinkling of electro-house newcomer Space Dimension Controller: the perfect recipe.

And they certainly did not disappoint  and although a bit hard for me at times, the crowd were enjoying it and wouldn’t have had it any other way.

In room two I found myself a nice little corner on the dance floor which I kept returning to for a change in tempo. There was a real cosy vibe in this room which was a refreshing change from the intensity of the main room.

WHP Residents Kyrsko and Greg Lord got things warmed up at the beginning of the night and I caught a bit of Tiger and Woods sleazy disco later on.

The vibe was great, the drinks were reasonable, the staff were friendly and my ears were ringing.  All in all a great night was had, I only wish I had had the stamina to get on the bus to the after party!
