House of Wax's 1st Birthday w/ Floating Points, Andrew Ashong and more on Wednesday 21st September 2016
So we're back, and we hope everybody has had an incredible summer thus far and continues to enjoy what they're doing whilst the last month remains. Please do remember however to save some of your energy for the autumn period because what we have in store for you over the coming months is impeccable.
First things first, we kick things off at Mantra Warehouse, one of Manchester's newly born clubs which is bound to gain monumental status. Boasting two rooms, with a capacity of around 1000 heads, the energy inside is set to be intense to say the least. Bringing towels is advised.
So, without further adieu, let's introduce our main guest, fuh-fuh-floating points..!
FLOATING POINTS (4 HOUR VINYL SET)
Man of the moment isn't a title fitting enough for Mr. Sam Shepherd. He is a man of many moments and has been ever since the famous, and favourited by many, release of Vacuum Boogie; which this magician actually created through the strenuous task of sampling his parents vacuum. Just two years later he dropped jaws yet again with an even more impressive collection of hybrid-genre works on his 'Shadows' album which recieved a five star rating from Resident Advisor, which is not something you see on a daily or even yearly basis. His powerful stride did not stop there, with his ability to blend ambient works with garage, house and jazz, Sam moved into the jazz scene and invented an incredibly sylistic 'electronic jazz funk' (if such could be labelled). Thus far he has produced two works, Elaenia, and the more recent Kuiper, both boasting impeccable rythym during his live performances which he holds steady in his hands for his DJ performances. His ability to craft music is not alone, as he harnesses his unique sense of hearing to blend frequencies at upmost quality. Words cannot describe the monumental stature this event will hold with both Floating Points and the stage upon which he stands for an entire four hours combined. Get your dancing shoes ready.
Andrew is a mighty musician with an incredibly eclectic (excuse my use of an incredibly overused word but this man is by far worthy) taste in music. Having only witnessed him perform live, the team are excited to invite him to their birthday event to warm the floor for the rest of the evening.
