The sun’s been out and it finally feels like we’ve started to shake off those winters blues. In only a few days it’ll be the Bangface Weekender, and then the May bank holiday weekend will soon be upon us. So, we thought it’s only right that we put in an extra big effort for our bank holiday special – and with two full days to recover there’s really no excuse.
Simian Mobile Disco – it’s not often you find chart topping acts gracing the bill at WANG, but S.M.D. know how to rock a party! Come see them getting down and dirty in a much more intimate venue than their megastar status normally allows.
Alexander Robotnick – there are not many artists around that can be hailed as an inspiration by not only the great and the good of the Detroit techno community, but also most house, electro and disco producers worth their salt. Alexander Robotnick released the Italo-disco cult classic “Problèmes d’amour” way back in 1983, and he’s still rocking dance floors with a unique blend of funky party tunes today. He played for us last December and totally blew us away, and we’ve been gagging to get him back ever since.
Jim Masters (Hi Tek Soul) – Jim is a true stalwart of the UK techno community. Over the years he’s promoted the long running Ultimate Base nights and is currently part of the Hi-Tek Soul collective, alongside Derrick May, putting on parties at Ministry Of Sound and touring the known universe.
Jake One – Live (Toob) – Jake first came to prominence providing electronic accompaniment to Red Snapper’s live outings. He went on to become one half of Toob with Richard Thair and will be performing live.
Uncle Buck – these guys are gonna blow up big real soon, catch’em now before stardom calls and they disappear off into the stratosphere.
Hefty – long time WANG regular Hefty has been bugging us for a gig for literally years, and we finally got around to sorting it out. For all you old faces out there, come see one of you WANGers make his WANG debut.
This Is Music DJs – The groundbreaking music company is and has always been pushing great music and musicians forward, we are lucky enough to have the founder member spinning for us this month.
Lukey Roots – providing WANG with his dubwise goodvibes, it wouldn’t be the same without Lukey.
Electro Elvis & Lula – your hostesses with mostesses Lula and Elvis with be running around like headless chickens, same as usual, and if they are lucky might even get to play some records and have a dance.
