Launching on March 31st with what's set to be a ground shattering party from house heavyweights Defected, Gibb Street Warehouse will evoke the feeling of early Acid House parties whist embracing state of the art modern technology and a highly experienced operations team.
As one of the most successful and influential record labels in the history of dance music, Defected are perfectly poised to launch Gibb Street Warehouse as it means to go on, with a peerless cast of main room artists .
Top of the bill will be two artists who have been at the forefront of Defected’s grip on accessible house music, Junior Jack and Kid Creme.
The Belgian pairing remain one of dance music’s most bankable pairs; Crème being the perfect foil for the production genius of Junior Jack and his catalogue of aliases. The pairing have been ever-presents in the finest DJ booths across the globe since their explosion at the turn of the century, and their inimitable brand of filtered house music remains one of the most potent around.
Joining them is another deadly duo, Copyright. Mixing up a ferocious concoction of tribal beats, Latin percussion and belting main room vocals, Copyright make twenty first century house the old fashioned way. Their productions have been dropped by everyone from Pete Tong to Erick Morillo, Francois K to Derrick Carter, with their DJ sets representing themselves and Defected everywhere from Hong Kong to Helsinki.
The final name on the bill is another Defected stalwart as well as someone Copyright have got behind on their own self-titled imprint, Franky Rizardo.
He completes a bill of ferocious talent which marks Defected returning to the second city for their Gibb St debut.
