Manchester's super club 'The Warehouse Project' has had a whole host of hype surrounding it, making a big name for itself across the UK and beyond... Daily Beat decided to find out what a night inside the ex-brewery holds for a clubber.

When first entering the Warehouse walls, one can't help but be shocked by the sheer size of the venue. Even with a capacity for 5000 people, the grand scale of things makes finding space to dance easy, with a collection of Funktion-One sound systems providing floor shaking bass, and crisp sounding trebles. Daily Beat first checked out one of the smaller rooms, and we were met with industrial, plastic strip doors, which really helped add to the Warehouse feel of the venue. Estonian Beatservice played an absolutely cracking set, with huge sing along moments when he dropped his remix of Nothing Without Me by Markus Schulz, a personal highlight for me.

Next it was time to hit the main room to catch W&W's set. What ensued was a tasty amalgamation of their trance routes, alongside their new found electro trouse sound. A whole host of big-room bangers worked wonders alongside the sound system, and hugely impressive lights. The crowd were hit by some of the brightest LED's I have ever seen, as well as some huge laser beams!


W&W concluded their set to roars from the crowd at the arrival of DJ Mag number one legend himself, Armin Van Buuren. Armin absolutely killed it, mixing in some of Armada's recent trance banger's, alongside classic tracks from his new album Intense. Whilst I might have been forced to flee Armin due to the worst rain I have ever seen at Tomorrowland, this set certainly made up for it in my mind.

Finally the trance champion John O'Callaghan took to the booth for the final set, treating us to a fantastic journey through progressive Trance, sending the crowd into a feelgood frenzy that only the beauty of Trance music can create. Arms in the air, people from 18 up to 50, all just falling in love with the rich soundscapes and epic light shows, truly an incredible night of music.


Warehouse Project and DJs: you absolutely nailed it with this one. If you haven't all ready, and are from the UK, make sure you get to the Warehouse Project sometime soon, an incredible experience with a very different vibe to your standard DJ show!
