The Warehouse Project – Edible featuring Eats Everything, Laurent Garnier, Midland

Last weekend, Human Drizzle took a trip to a rain-swept Manchester to experience the 2014 edition of the world famous Warehouse Project.

This year the Warehouse Project returned to its spiritual home of Store Street for the first time since 2011. A series of arches that once comprised an old air raid shelter underneath Manchester Piccadilly train station, this is a venue that the promoters know well, and it shows in the organisation of the night.

One minor complaint about WhP is the insistence that you have to be in the club by 10:30pm at the absolute latest. It’s unclear whether this is to increase bar sales, to catch out those people with poor time management skills, or to reduce numbers inside – but it feels like an overly authoritarian move.

However, this is the only real complaint we could have about the organisation. The sound in both rooms is crisp, the venue isn’t too full (as it was at the Victoria Warehouse when we last came in 2012) and it’s easy enough to move around, get a drink and find a seat in the whatever-people-are-calling-the-chill-out-area-nowadays room. Most importantly, we were able to do our thang on the floor without having our style cramped by anything other than our own diminishing manoeuvrability.

Onto the music. We arrived to Drop The Mustard laying down Sasha’s massive remix of London Grammar ‘Hey Now’, a slightly lighter than expected start to a night that featured Subb-an, Paul Woolford, Catz N’ Dogz, Midland and Laurent Garnier, all of whom were lead by the ever enthusiastic Eats Everything.

As the doors shut behind us, Catz N’ Dogz took over in the main room. We took the opportunity to go and check out the excellent Marquis Hawkes in Room 2 (you could do far worse than spending an hour listening to his mix for WhP…)

Soon, the man the punters came to see took to the decks in Room 1 – Eats Everything displaying his usual carefree abandon and willingness to interact with the crowd.

It wasn’t long before he was delighting a now fully charged up dance floor by hammering into 90s classic B.B.E ‘Seven Days And One Week’.

It was a shame that Laurent Garnier and Midland played at the same time, such fans are we of both of their abilities. Laurent Garnier’s Essential Mix from earlier this year is top – a full 20 years after his first session for Radio1?! – whilst regular readers of HD will know how highly we talk of Midland.

Midland rounded off what was a brilliant night by calling on one of the big tracks of the Ibizan summer; the ‘Re-Plant’ of ‘Never Grow Old’ by Floorplan which rocked the White Isle throughout 2014.

By that point, HD was well past its bedtime and we collected ourselves and headed out, ears ringing, into the North Western night.

It’ll be interesting to see where the Warehouse Project goes next. They’ll be celebrating their 10th birthday next year – not a party that you want to overlook in a hurry – and you hope that they are given the support they deserve to properly laud what has become a Mancunian, if not national, clubbing institution.

Disclosure – F For You (Eats Everything Remix)

It was only a matter of time before a collaboration like this came about. In fact it’s crazy it’s not been done before, but after both acts supported one another on tour dates recently at XOYO and Ally Pally, a remix has come to fruition. Eats Everything has taken Disclosure’s most recent version of ‘F For You’ featuring Mary J. Blige and given it the once over. Surely a match made in heaven.

Although it does contain Eats’ trademark infectious, punchy synth stabs, we were a little underwhelmed. Sure it’ll get a dancefloor shifting their feet when it’s dropped mid-set, but nothing to write home about here. Considering their gargantuan stature, it’s a shame 😦

On the plus side, Eats Everything is releasing some original material with Justin Martin in the form of his ‘Hello Mr. Jello’ EP at the end of March. It nicely coincides with the last few weeks of his residency at XOYO, check out who is playing alongside him here.

Catz ‘n Dogz – Mass Confusion (Eats Everything Remix)

Fairly hefty remix here of Catz ‘n Dogz’s ‘Mass Confusion’ from Eats Everything. Out on Pets Recordings, you wanna watch out if you stumble across this one in the clubs.

Breach ft. Andreya Triana – Everything You Never Had (We Had It All)

So, finally, it’s happening. Breach‘s ‘Everything You Never Had (We Had It All)’ featuring Andreya Triana on vocals looks like it is finally going to get a release. This has got us extremely excited. Four months ago, it was played by Annie Mac on her show, and two days later T. Williams featured it on his Sunday night Rinse FM broadcast, to a massive response.

But then…nothing. Rips of those shows disappeared off the web, and there was no sign of any release date, although young Ben and Eats Everything continued to play the song out. Maybe Mr. Westbeach was overwhelmed by the success of his massive summer hit ‘Jack’ and fantastic remix of ‘Everything’ by Maya Jane Coles and decided to shelve the release for a bit…? Who knows? Who cares? It’s here now and, despite it being in clip form, it looks certain that this will be Breach’s next single.

The tune itself can only be described as a dance floor banger, with a soaring finale. It mixes a thumping house beat over Andreya’s soulful vocals, with a crescendo that sees him return to the type of intensity that made ‘You Won’t Find Love Again’ such a brilliant tune last summer. We really can’t get enough of it.

As for Ben himself, he continues to go from strength to strength, with an increasingly impressive range of releases. 2013 has been huge for him. Catch Breach and T. Williams amongst a strong line up at XOYO next weekend for Bugged Out!

Huxley – Body Talk

Light up your life/Friday/bank holiday weekend with this from Huxley:

As part of the 2020Vision 20th anniversary compilation, ‘Content’ (which, by the way, is something you all need to watch out for – new stuff from Eats Everything, Maya Jane Coles, Simian Mobile Disco and Paul Woolford), Huxley has produced this deep house delight. WATCH for the piano coming in at 2:50, it’s a serious business.

Bonus tracks:

All this hits you 30th June on, you guessed it, 2020Vision.

LEAF 2013

Now, we don’t usually give the announcement of a new festy a quadruple take, but this one caught our eye.
LEAF is a London-based three-dayer celebrating the city’s electronic music heritage. It pushes all our buttons with talks from luminaries such as Giorgio Moroder and New Order right through to upstarts like Eats Everything and Happa. Major Lazer, Trentmoller and Omar Souleyman chip in with live sets, and we could go on but it’s becoming Buzzfeed-esque (“17 events you wish you could go to, but  can’t!”)
LEAF is helmed by veteran selector Rob da Bank, together with International Music Summit creator Ben Turner, and you can get your tickets and further info here.
Here are some tunes to whet your appetite, if you needed it whetting any more:

Justin Jay – Static EP

We were blown away by Justin Jay’s ‘Everything’ EP released last month on Southern Fried Records, so it’s no surprise we’re thrilled to hear he’s already got another EP up his sleeve. It’s entitled ‘Static’ and is out on Dirtybird, April 15th. For those unaware, Dirtybird’s a San Franciscan label that’s renowned for releasing party music. Think Justin Martin, Eats Everything, and of course label owner Claude VonStroke. Now they’ve got the pleasure of welcoming this chap on board.

Deviating from the silky sounds of ‘Everything’, Mr Jay steps it up a notch on the two tracks we’ve heard. You can tell the 19 year old means business. Give ‘Static’ a spin for just over a minute and you’ll see what we mean: it’s like a blow to the jugular. ‘Waves’, a little more controlled yet similarly impressive, is just over seven minutes of downbeat and deep, heady house music.

This guy’s fast becoming one of our favourite young stars.

T. Williams – Dreaming

T. Williams is bussaaaaay this November. Following his recent stomping remix of Disclosure (a ‘club edit’ if we ever heard one), he’s treated us to a new single, ‘Dreaming’, very much in the same vein. Out November 19th on PMR, home to his thoughtful ‘Pain and Love’ EP, ‘Dreaming’ just shouts weekend at you, loudly:

Mr. Williams is also doing the honours for the latest Rinse release (number 21, if anyone’s interested) and it reads a dream. Anyone for DisclosureJulio BashmoreEats Everything and Maya Jane Coles?  Full tracklist over at FACT. Worth jotting down the launch party too; 22nd November at Plastic People. We like the sound of “various special unannounced guests who feature on the CD”…

Javeon McCarthy – Lost Time

Bristol-born vocalist Javeon McCarthy has already appeared on some pretty big records, in collaboration with L-Vis 1990 and Julio Bashmore. Both are friends and label mates on PMR Records – who today release McCarthy’s own tune, ‘Lost Time’.

The track is produced by Craze & Hoax and is a heady mix of Balearic vibes, busy percussion and heavy bass. Most prominent of all though is McCarthy’s soulful vocal, which impresses with its versatility and sets up the tune’s cinematic mood.

Remixes by T. Williams and Eats Everything add a bit more oomph for the dancefloor, but we actually like the original best. What do you think? Why not let us know over on Twitter.
