Mercury award winner James Blake returns in a double bill, with a live performance and DJ set as part of the Manchester Warehouse project. Not only are we treated to Blake, but this Saturday night also offers Dan Foat and Airhead, Klaus, Mala, Frank Tope and Trim amongst others.
WHP returns to its original home of Shore Street under Manchester Piccadilly Station. The dark smokey atmosphere contained in bricked tunnels provides the perfect setting for channeling Blake’s unique blend of soul and beautifully minimal electronic music.
Blake, whose two albums have received massive critical acclaim, deliver a staggering sonic performance filled with beautiful melodies and plenty of powerful bass and trance inducing rhythms designed to both mesmerise and hypnotise.
Also featured are artists from his very own label 1-800-Dinosaur. This emerged originally as a club night in London and now includes people that Blake has collaborated with (such as Airhead) or have an equally original take on modern dance music. If you haven’t experienced the WHP before, then this certainly would be a good introduction.
