In the DJ Booth: Fleur Shore, Jaden Thompson, The Martinez Brothers at the Warehouse Project in Manchester

Join us in the DJ booth at Manchester’s infamous Warehouse Project, as they opened up again in 2021 with a stinking programme for this season after a 2-year beauty sleep!

Back with a vengeance, we’re just desperate for a good rave by now, and so we hit the DJ booth on the concourse on the 2 October for the best party atmosphere ever! The Depot is great, the Archive is alright too, but it’s much more #edmfamily of the right size to feel the vibe of the crowd in this space, we find.

When Fleur Shore kicked off the evening, we were absolutely living it in no time at all. There’s a brilliant energy about this edm powerhouse, who produces dance tracks you can go on raving to forever.

Her infectious beat never stops, also digging out ‘Oldies but Goodies’ from the 80s & 90s. Jaden Thompson is another fresh talent nominee, already signed up to The Martinez Bros’ Cuttin’ Headz imprint. Being the youngest DJ to hold residencies at London’s legendary fabric, he already knows pretty well what ravers want.

We also caught up with Seth Troxler, who popped in to say hello – he was on from 2-4 am, by which time we had bowed out already. When Chris & Steven Jr rocked up in the DJ booth, the crowd went wild, knowing what’s coming…when The Martinez Bros hit the decks, there’s no time for taking a breather.

The Warehouse Project is back!

As an annual fixture within Manchester’s rave calendar, the Warehouse Project’s gigs are a big deal for clubbers each year.

The legendary event has 1000s of music lovers holding their breaths awaiting the huge line-up announcements. Getting bigger and bigger each year, these club nights have cemented their place into the iconic Manchester music scene.

From its beginnings way back in 2006, the much-loved clubland event has grown to become a much-loved institution. Expanding its horizons and introducing the by now iconic Parklife Festival – the WHP’s sister event which started in 2013 – the WHP moved to a new home at the Mayfield Depot.

Taking a look at the AW21 season line-up, TA-DAH.TV have picked out some of the biggest names you must be sure not to miss!

The season has only just begun, but with so much more to come, epic events literally continue until New Year’s Day.

The Warehouse Project – for those who don’t know…

Taking us back just over a decade, 2006 was the year the Warehouse Project began. Started as a joint venture by Sacha Lord and Sam Kandel, who both had involvements with the Sankeys nightclub (also in Manchester). Moving from several spaces, the organisation has put down roots in various areas of the ‘Capital of the North’. From the disused Boddingtons Brewery in Strangeways to an old air raid shelter under Piccadilly Station, to its current location at the Mayfield Depot.

Since its beginnings, the club has played host to a number of internationally acclaimed DJs. Including the likes of Annie Mac, Fake Blood, Pete Tong, Armand Van Helden, Carl Cox and Richie Hawtin. As well as big musicians such as Foals, The Prodigy and Manchester’s very own, Happy Mondays there isn’t a music act out there worth his/her salt, that hasn’t played the WHP. Watch our brilliant exclusive interviews on TA-DAH.TV’s music channel, and on YouTube too, where the ‘Oldies, but Goodies’ are still showing. The nice thing about the WHP philosophy is the fact that they pull along fresh talent, giving them a platform, alongside established artists. That’s just great…

The Warehouse Project is recognised across the UK, and globally, as one of the most popular clubs, actually winning an awards for this too. In 2007, The Warehouse Project was voted by Mixmag as the best club in the UK. Later crowned the Best Club Series in 2013 by DJ mag. So check out their programme online and get your tickets now!
