Celebrating what has been an amazing year for The Warehouse Project, the team are proud to announce one of the most exciting line-ups of the series for their New Year’s Eve spectacular. Having recently been honoured with a Q Magazine Award for Innovator in Music, super-producer Mark Ronson will headline a line-up that also features Radio 1 favourite Annie Mac and Retro/Grade, both of whom will be making their second WHP10 appearance.
His production credits and collaborations are the envy of many having worked with some of contemporary music’s biggest stars from all genres and played at some of the hottest and most exclusive events in the world. Mark Ronson will now be able to add Manchester’s The Warehouse Project to that list when he makes an appearance as the headline act at the NYE special. Recently enjoying chart success and critical acclaim with his Record Collection album Ronson will bring just that to Store Street on Friday 31st December.
Already set for a WHP/Annie Mac presents night in November, the Radio 1 taste-maker will be making her second appearance in the series at NYE mashing up some of 2010’s biggest dance floor tracks. Also making a second WHP10 appearance are Retro/Grade, the modern Italo Disco two piece have received support from DJs including Pete Tong and Erol Alkan and between them remixed The Tings Tings, The Verve and Simian Mobile Disco among many others.
Picked by Kissy Sell Out as his favourite in the BBC’s ‘In New DJs We Trust’ poll 2008, Jaymo & Andy George is the youngest duo ever to record a live Essential Mix for the station. Expect everything from electro to indie via synth-pop from the force behind the Moda nights and label when they hit the WHP decks. Completing the NYE line-up is a raft of familiar favourites and WHP10 residents including Krysko, Greg Lord, Now Wave DJs, Ken Evil, Rich Reason, Juicy and Will Tramp.
