The Warehouse Project 2017
Quite literally taking place in the underground (beneath Manchester Piccadilly station), for 12 weeks from mid-September through to the end of the year, there is so much happening for this year's Warehouse Project that it's hard to know where to start. Whether you like dancing to grime, tech-house, bashment, or even LCD Soundsystem, here's our pick of the mammoth line-up.
The UK rapper has truly broken through this year, but don't let his newfound global stardom via a number of Drake features fool you: Peckham artist Giggs' music is very much still from the streets. With his trademark gruff delivery (as memorably heard on JME's iconic 'Man Don't Care'), and a banging fourth album last year, Giggs epitomises gritty London hip hop at its finest, and his set at WHP should be full of that raucous and raw urban energy.
Where do we even start with Hunee? The Korean DJ - real name Hun Choi - is renowned for his joyously expert knowledge of music, and his sweetly enthused sets make him one of the most reliable dancefloor-fillers out there. Soul-infused house and colourful disco via warm African funk and so much more, when Hunee takes to the decks even those of you with two left feet will be throwing shapes like there's no tomorrow.
Chances are you know Mumdance (real name Jack Adams) from his work with grime MC Novelist - '1 Sec' and 'Shook' both wobbled with ominous, abrasive, excellent production courtesy of the Sussex man's spacious industrial-meets-jungle-meets-grime beats. Easily one of the most interesting, innovative producers the country has right now, this set should be deliciously humid, intense and thrilling.
