Topic: Nick Warren At Just Add Sunshine - Sound Control Manchester 8 Nov 2013
Following the huge success of our launch night in October we bring you a true legend in the Progressive House scene!! No other than NICK WARREN! Its been years since Nick has graced the decks in Manchester and we are very proud to welcome him back for a peak time 3 hour set. We fully expect this to be a lock out!!
10pm - 4am - last entry 2am!!
Full lineup for the night -
Nick Warren(Hope Recordings/Way Out West)
You can tell when Nick Warren's on the decks. The music emanating from the DJ booth is that perfect club mix of driving percussion and soaring musicality, bursting out of the speakers, soaking everyone in melody, drenching them in sound. Warren's impressive career has seen him release the very first ?Back to Mine?, a staggering eight albums for ?Global Underground?, and one for ?Renaissance?. He is also in control of A&R for record label Hope Recordings, as well as being a member of the highly acclaimed duo Way Out West. Starting as tour DJ with Massive Attack, moving onto a residency at super club Cream and playing at every self-respecting club on the planet, has led him to this natural position as one of the world's most respected DJs.
All this history has been eclipsed by Nick?s present: Nick continues to play out every weekend on every continent, whilst also maintaining Hope Recording's high quality output that they and Warren himself have become synonymous with; his DJ career spans two decades and is driven by a continual desire for change. His sound is forged by an enduring relationship with cutting edge producers all over the globe, in many cases long before they become established. This is no better represented than in the continuing bi-monthly Radio show 'Soundgarden' on Friskyradio which attracts over 150000 unique tune-ins to each airing or his mixes for Digweed?s 'Transitions'.
2013 has already seen two further Hope Recordings releases under Warren's name and also a landmark 20th anniversary edition of the Renaissance masters series album, which Nick was honourably asked to compile. These diverse outputs from Warren on Hope Recordings have included a remix of global pop sensation Lana Del Rey's 'Summertime Sadness' and also a breathtaking original 'Devil's Elbow', both demonstrating Warren's diverse abilities in assuming a classic timeless sound, whilst still injecting a glossy and modern slant into his powerful productions. The highly anticipated 'Devil's Elbow' was also supported with two highly reputable remixes from Max Cooper and jozif. Max Cooper's remix was supported by an unique conceptual video and received great critical acclaim reaching No.1 in Beatport's Electronica chart.
With many more releases planned into the exciting Hope Recordings calendar and an extensive touring schedule for the remaining year, Warren is still at the top of his game and showcasing why he is still standing as a giant within electronic music...
"Always able to put together top notch mixes, while keeping things interesting and exciting; Nick Warren takes a blank landscape, paints it with touches of atmospheric mastery, breakbeat magnificence, and experimental brilliance - thus creating a masterpiece." - Resident Advisor
"Impeccable mixing...uncommon skills" - Sound Revolt
"Multi-talented is an understatement" - Lunar Magazine
