The Warehouse Project - Circus
Friday 10th October
On Friday 10th October Yousef brought his Circus to town with a lineup that could be described as no less than bang on. Chris Malinchak, Joris Voorn and Shadow Child are a few names that headlined the night alongside the man himself.
Joris Voorn started the night with a rumble. The Dutchman kept a continuous glow of wavey music to please his fans. Looking from the back of the room to begin I could see many heads bobbing up and down as everyone grooved. He presented with a racier rendition of Natural High that gave me a kick up the backside, and I made my way in for the remainder of what turned out to be the perfect appertiser for the rest of the night.
For me, Chris Malinchak delivered the set of the night however. His set began with a slower, more chilled vibe than the act who was playing before him. He released soft electronic sounds into the crowd who seemed to enjoy the respite from the heavy detroit techno set they’d heard previously. He conjured a warmer vibe as he dropped If You Got It and So Good To Me - two tracks with a soft groovey feel that got the crowd waving and putting their arms around one another. However, he later ruptured the calm as he dropped his very own banger All Shook Up.
Shadow Child closed the night in room 2. His face has been seen at many a festival this year which undoubtedly and evidently increased his popularity as the place was crammed from wall to wall. Before the drop in Angels there was an extreme calm that cast through the air. As soon as the first bouncy synth emerged from the system, a chrous of jeers rung out across the room.
At the Warehouse Project it’s encouraged that you party deep into the early hours of the morning. There’ll eventually be commuters boarding a platform above you on the way to work with papers and coffees. They have no idea that beneath their feet there are thousand of people who haven’t been to bed yet, still involved in the night before. The Warehouse Project has settled nicely back into its spiritual home of Store Street car park under Piccadilly train station and the magic remains the same.
