There are few givens in this life. One stone cold truth, however, is that Hot Creations man Richy Ahmed is wicked on the ones and twos – a sure fire party starter. Then there's the soundsystem at Club Warehouse, tipped in our pages as possibly the best in the UK by both Nick Curly and Grant Nelson last year, it's state-of-the-art Funktion One rig yet another absolute certainty – a recipe for dancefloor destruction. It's fair to suggest, then, the two together would be a desirable combination. Two pluses make a plus, right? Naturally.
Throw in Culprit label heads Droog, Gist residents Mono 4 and local favourite Jnr Windross and you have something to really go to school for, all happening to launch brand-spanking new hotshot promotion Somewhere on Saturday 20th April.
