In the decade that has passed since Store Street first hosted The Warehouse Project, the venue has become synonymous with the revered Manchester club series. 2018, though, is Store Street’s final year. With the season well underway, there are only a limited number of chances to catch The Warehouse Project in its spiritual home, and one of the most exciting nights is just around the corner. Curated by Daniel Avery features some truly exciting artists from the electronic underground. It also features Avery himself – one of the most talented producers of the moment.

Back in 2013, Avery’s debut album Drone Logic was met with massive acclaim. Created for the darkest corner of the dancefloor, this deeply individualistic record was a masterclass in acid house/techno/electro. It was followed by Song For Alpha, just a couple of months ago. Digging still deeper into the underground, in this record Avery expands his sonic vocabulary and widens his ambition. Ambient lullabies morph into booming big room which slips into hypnotic techno. The early nineties are definitely present – Aphex Twin, William Basinski and Warp Records’ Artificial Intelligence series are obvious reference points – and yet this is all imbued with a sense of exciting freshness. His set at Warehouse will surely be one to remember.

The rest of the line-up is just as strong. Headlining is Berghain resident Marcel Dettmann. One of the most influential figures in modern techno, his hard-driving, intense live sets leave sweat dripping off the ceiling. A lighter affair, Daphni – the alias Caribou uses for his dancefloor oriented music – will bring his distinct, soulful beats to Store Street once again. Elsewhere, the more underground artists feel like the most exciting. Known for his atmospheric 90’s breakbeats, Skee Mask, like Daniel Avery, has been touching on ambient music and IDM in his most recent musical offerings. We look forward to seeing what his set holds. Similarly, Avalon Emerson is a really exciting pick. Always adventurous, her cosmic synths and leftfield electro beats are sure to bring a sense of warped euphoria to the proceedings.

Tickets, somehow, are still available, so if you’re thinking of catching one last Warehouse event at Store Street, then let this be it!
