Well, well what a night!! Great Suffolk Street Warehouse is always an interesting venue for club nights.  Amidst a car park among the dusty pee puddled floors and lengthy queues for portaloos, lies two large stone arched rooms playing host to a variety of big names in electro, house, trance and many more.

December 3rd was the long awaited Numbers Warehouse Party, with headlining acts including: Hudson Mohawke, Jamie xx, Deadboy, Redhino and Spencer. Without a doubt the music was truly splendid and offered everything we could have expected from such an amazing line up. Unfortunately… the crowd was less than splendid. We were eagerly waiting Jamie xx’s set and had aimed to work our way towards the front to get a glimpse of him in action; no need though. To our horror we were aggressively moshed towards the front and spent the next two hours battling hoards of crazed revellers …anyone would have thought we were at Download festival going ape to Metallica…where have the days of politely dancing within your bubble gone? We have been to many events in our legal rave days, but none quite compared to the chaos that bestowed us in the early hours of Sunday morning. Rest assured we are not aggressive people fellow readers-in fact we are a rather docile more than socially polite trio, but truth be told the demons were unleashed, elbows were swinging and knees were jolting-dance or die was the resounding motto of the evening. However, this is not aimed to dampen the night or the effort of the Numbers team, it is highly likely that given only one of the stages was action this eve, the popularity of the event and the acts, the crowds were simply bursting with Numbers excitement; and frankly if everyone is having an amazing night, so are we.

The light displays were amazing and the drink prices were relatively cheap for a London event averaging at £4 for spirits and £3 for shots and RedBull. The bouncers were professional, the staff well organised and the first release ticket prices were super.

I now officially have a rather large crush on Mr xx and highly regret not saying hello when we saw him out having a cigarette in the smoking area (but given the sheer cringeness of such an act this simply isn’t our style). One of the Raiders was compared to looking like Skream by Jackmaster’s cousin (which he was veeeery happy about); and where the other Raider got too is anyone’s guess; but true to his lone wanderer style on epic club nights, it is highly likely he had an uber amazing night.

Sound quality-much better closer to the stage-the sound can get somewhat muffled towards the back…strangely enough sit in a portaloo and it’s like sitting on a subwoofer!!
