Amid a very successful autumn season, Dirty Box Promotions, (DBP) have been dropping some hints of things to come in 2015. Since launching their own Southampton nightclub, Switch, earlier this September with figureheads from other Southampton promoters (High Tide, Cafe Parfait), the brand’s Warehouse events have already seen massive success in their new home with a number of notable sellout nights, including Route 94, Mark Kinchen (MK), and Hot Since 82. Of course, with such notoriety, speculation has already begun on what the brand will have to offer in the year to come.
DBP’s Ryan Keary has already suggested Julio Bashmore, has caught the brand’s attention. Many will remember Bashmore for his acclaimed 2012 hit ‘Au Seve‘. The Bristol based producer is certainly one to watch in 2015, with an upcoming album slated for release in the near future, a booking at Switch would certainly prove to be a wise decision.
Also on the cards for 2015 are Chase & Status. The duo were previously rumored to be headlining DBP’s multi-venue Halloween event this year but those plans never came into fruition. Now, it appears they’ll be performing some time in 2015 at Switch.
On top of booking rumours, DBP have revealed that they have a very large project in the works for next year, with a date already set, 7 months in advance for May 2nd 2015. For now details are scarce, with only the date, and the promise of the biggest event and line-up to grace the WH Presents brand, however more news is set to follow with announcement throughout November. Something to note here is that on the same weekend this year Junk Department threw their one-day Big Top festival … maybe the two brands will be teaming up for 2015? Or maybe Southampton will have two large-scale, festival-style events in 2015?
With plenty more Warehouse Southampton nights still on the cards this year, DBP have all bases covered, with Food Music, Bondax and Digital Soundboy, among others, ready to see the year out. As for actually seeing the year out, the WH/Switch NYE lineups are yet to be revealed. More on that soon …
