Live Review: Tuskegee at The Warehouse Project
The Warehouse Project: believe the hype, says Hannah Brierley
Don’t make the mistake in thinking a Warehouse Project event is just for one night. It is guaranteed to claim the following day too, so if you are lucky enough to go, don’t make any plans. I woke up at 4pm following the Tuskegee takeover at Manchester’s infamous Warehouse Project, and my legs still ached from the hours of continuous dancing the night before.
“It’s just impossible not to love the combination of festival fever and dingy rave
There was only one act the people at this event were really there to see though, and that was the ridiculously talented duo The Martinez Brothers playing back-to-back with the legendary Seth Troxler for five hours in Room 1. A match made in heaven. They began Tuskegee Music as a vinyl-only label back in 2014; this show was actually my third time watching them together and after their insanely impressive performance, I will definitely be going again. The visual effects, which were played on the front of and above the decks were unbelievably brilliant. At points they showed some of the infamous icons we’ve lost this year, like Bowie, Gene Wilder and Prince. There was even a psychedelic penis montage at one point. Although this all sounds a little mad, each visual fitted whatever track was playing perfectly with matching transitions, and the whole set had undoubtedly been masterfully thought through.
