DBP & co’s Warehouse brand is continuing to reveal its 2015 bookings with the likes of Pete Tong, Patrick Topping, Julio Bashmore, Scuba, David Rodigan all added to the calender, following the reveal of a free party with Blonde and an extended set from Hannah Wants last week. Pete Tong will brings his world famous All Gone Pete Tong club night to Switch, with support from Disciples on Saturday January 31st. The following week sees the Warehouse brand collaborate with Brighton based promoters Supercharged to secure a RamJam booking with David Rodigan and Shy FX. The pair are set to play Engine Rooms on Friday 6th February.
It’s hard not to be familiar with Pete Tong, the host of Radio 1’s Essential Mix, a show that Tong established as a producer back in 1991 along with Eddie Gordon. The show has been running ever since, promoting the most diverse selection of DJs and electronic music on radio. As a matter of fact it’s not long until The Essential Mix of 2014 is decided by Tong’s carefully selected panel of judges. Tong’s selection skills have earnt him a reputation, not only as a world class DJ, but as the man to go to for compilations. All Gone Pete Tong is the Radio 1 DJ’s club night brand, that sees him take up residencies in Las Vegas, Miami and Ibiza as well as tours across the globe.
Playing the first Warehouse night in the newly re-furbished Engine Rooms (formerly the Mo’Club Warehouse), Shy FX and David Rodigan are teaming up again after their victory in The Redbull Culture Clash as one half of DJ super-group Rebel Sound with teammates Chase & Status. Having constituted one half of the group, the pair, respected and talented DJs in their own right are teaming up again to play against one another. Founder of Digital Soundboy, Shy FX, is known for his quality Jungle, DnB, and bass oriented productions as well as his skill on the decks. Like Tong, David Rodigan has earned himself an MBE for his services to British broadcasting as one of the most longstanding and respected radio DJs, representing the best in Reggae, and Dancehall. Rodigan and Shy are together a force to be reckoned with, promoting the best in urban bass culture.
Also confirmed to play at Switch in February are Julio Bashmore and My Nu Leng, on the 7th. The following week, Hot Creations’ Patrick Topping will take to the decks with support from Leftwing & Kody. The Food Music showcase night that was postponed from Warehouses’ autumn season has been rescheduled for 21st February, and British born, Berlin based Scuba, head honcho of Hotflush Recordings will be in charge on the 28th February.
The complete list of acts confirmed for January and February is as follows: Blonde, Hannah Wants, Pete Tong, Disciples, Julio Bashmore, My Nu Leng, Patrick Topping, Leftwing & Kody, Shadow Child, Kry Woolf, Eli & Fur, and Scuba. An image recently published from Warehouse also contains pictures of Annie Mac, and James Zabiellia, so it’s likely that we’ll be seeing these two make an appearance at Switch during March.
