1. Boddika – Heat
Recently released on Loefah’s omnipresent Swamp 81 label, ‘Heat’ exemplifies how Boddika has continued to back up the success of his own label’s ‘Think and Change’ compilation. An intriguing vocal sample is matched with punchy kicks to create a track that will no doubt be dropped by the likes of Jackmaster, Zed Bias and a range of other Warehouse Project performers.
2. The Prodigy – Breathe
Playing three already sold out headline nights, The Prodigy are back again to show why they are held in such high regard in the live dance music world. It could be ‘Breathe’, ‘Firestarter’ or ‘Omen’, it really doesn’t matter, The Prodigy will shake The Warehouse in a way few other artists will have ever done before.
3. Skream – Bang That
‘Bang That’ was surely one of The Warehouse Project’s most played tracks towards the end of last year and with it still being unreleased, a continued air of hype is created around this aptly-named banger. In the words of MC Chunky, “sing along if you know the words”.
4. Dusky – Careless
Dusky’s latest release on the AUS record label has the potential to carry on from where tracks like ‘Nobody Else’ left off in being a regular big room smash. The duo play on three separate occasions over the course of this year’s Warehouse Project season, giving ample opportunity to catch tracks like ‘Careless’ which feature Dusky’s near-trademark vocal buildup and bassline drop.
5. LFO – LFO
This track was first released way back in 1990, yet it still manages to sound relevant when listened to alongside modern electronic music. LFO are considered the true pioneers of the Acid and Techno sounds. Tracks like ‘LFO’ were originally created for the warehouse environment and over twenty years later this song’s purpose can still be served.
