TRiPP have just announced the remainder of their dancetripp August listings along with the first date in September. As a result, we now know that Kry Wolf, Wayward, Jack Wickham, Isaac Tichauer, and Nail will all be playing at the venue over the next month. dancetripp is TRiPP’s flagship night and has a leaning towards underground house and techno music – much like TRiPP’s sister brand, Junk Department.
Update: Bodhi will be playing at TRiPP on the 13th September, completing the dancetripp summer schedule.
The Isaac Tichauer night had in fact been announced previously, so that’s not news per se. Tichauer will be brought to TRiPP via a collaboration with Portsmouth’s Concrete Music clubnight. TRiPP (and indeed, Junk Department) have collaborated with Concrete before, most noteably at the Big Top event back in may where Concrete Music hosted a stage.
Kry Wolf are fast becoming recognised as one of the UK’s big underground players due to their distinctively creative and varied production style and consistently strong releases. The duo are also behind some of the biggest parties ever thrown on the south coast through uber brand Sumo, not to mention putting out some of the freshest new talent on their own label Sounds of Sumo.
Wayward is the DJ/Producer partnership of long-time friends Louis Greenwood and Lawrence Gale Hayes. The duo have garnered what Fabric describes as “a sassy, metropolitan sound that suitably falls under that pop-esque, 4×4 banner” which has seen them rise up the ranks to emerge alongside the Eton Messy / Black Butter Records crews. The pair have had a busy summer playing festivals across the UK alongside many club shows and their room 1 Fabriclive debut earlier this year.
Jack Wickham’s style stems across House, Deep House and Deep Techno, being influenced and imbued by other DJs, sounds and inspiration around him to create his own unique image and sound. Carrying a mixture of deep musical passion, a collection of music way past his current age and an open minded perspective.
What goes around comes around, so the saying goes, and for Nottingham’s Neil “Nail” Tolliday—2013 was the year for come arounds. Whilst this side of the millennium was spent chiefly on Bent, his eight-year partnership with Simon Mills that headlined festivals and was a huge commercial success, prior that he was simply Nail, underground house producer and admired cult DJ—origins that some twenty years later are being exposed anew.
