This weekend Thrasher returns to the Warehouse Project bringing in toe a beautifully diverse lineup that has all the makings to keep the party going till the early hours. With a lineup featuring the likes SBTRKT, Evian Christ, Jay Electronica and many more, we picked out 5 tracks from the artists descending on the Store Street venue this Saturday to help get you in the mood.
SBTRKT - Pharaohs
Following the release of his eponymous first album, London producer SBTRKT has been riding high as one of the most respected architects of electronic music over the course of the last 4 years. Tracks such as Wildfire featuring Little Dragon vocalist Yukimi Nagano and Hold on featuring Sampha highlights SBTRKT's ability to craft beats that can be a club hit whilst also possessing a wide audience appeal. The masked producer will be performing a DJ set when he appears at Warehouse Project this weekend.
Pharoahs contains one seriously infectious synth line, don't be surprised to find yourself moving in ways you never knew you could if SBTRKT decides to drop this one.
Koreless – Sun
Hailing from Wales, Koreless has been on people's radar since 2011 following his 4D EP release and will be treating the audience to a live set when he appears at Warehouse Project this Saturday. The EP was chocked full of glitchy sounds and beautifully crafted bass lines which were never more evident on tracks such such as MTI and 4d.
Sun taken from his Yungen EP released on Young Turks features the staple glitchy sounds present on Korless' early releases. A seriously euphoric reach for the lasers kind of tune. (FYI, don't leave your hands in the air waiting for the drop....)
Seven Davis Jr – Wild Hearts
Seven Davis Jr offers up the unique blend of funky house beats infused with his own soulful vocals. The US producer and singer songwriter is one of the most forward thinking minds in house music and has been perfecting his craft over the course of a number of high profile releases and EP's before dropping album Universes earlier this year which see him teamed up with the likes of Julio Bashmore.
Wild Hearts, with its relentless bass and precision vocal fills, demonstrates why Seven Davis Jr is regarded as one of the most unique acts around.
Special Request – Tessla - Hackney Parrot (Special Request VIP)
One section of the mind of Paul Woolford is Special Request. Specialising in jungle breakbeats with the side effect of uncontrollable dancing, the Leeds producer conjures up tracks that would be at home fuelling warehouse raves as well as ensuring party goers get a good workout when filling the dance floor in clubs.
Rave siren alert!
Leon Vynehall – St Sinclair
Leon Vynehall has been lighting up the house music scene over the course of the last 4 years. In this time he has been able to produce a collection of sincere deep house tracks that have featured on a number of EP's as well as his album Music for the Uninvited. Tracks such as It's Just (House of Dupree) and Butterflies have become useful tools for DJs looking to subtly get the party into full swing.
The likes of Time and Be Brave Clench fists exemplify what Vynehall is all about, however it is St Sinclair that is a personal standout as this elegant sub 4 minute track has all the features to raise the arms of party goers.
