When someone posted the Horizon Festival line-up on my Facebook a few months ago I got super stoked about it and checked out the festival properly, and then my jaw dropped when I saw that it was set high up in snowy mountains and everyone goes skiing and snowboarding at the same time and it all looks absolutely idyllic. And then I saw that it goes on for 6 days and a little bit of wee came out.
And then I noticed the festival happens at the end of March. Then I spent the next week crying and staring inquisitively at a bottle of sleeping pills because instead of spending the Easter holiday frolicking in the glistening snow and mandying out to some deep house, I have to go to dreary Miami and sulk as my bloody cousin gets herself sodding married. Yawn, right? Life’s tough…
But don’t worry if you’re like me and you can’t get out to Bulgaria in a month, because Waxxx are bringing the party to Liverpool and we’re joining them. Tonight we’re taking over Room 2 at Haus Warehouse (35-39 Greenland St) and we’re gonna shake the place so hard the the ceiling will start disintegrating and sprinkling down like the snowflakes over Bankso.
Here’s the run-down of our beat-droppers lining up tonight:
Our boy Nudist braved the cold of the outside world about a month ago but he’s already turning heads, and not because his dangly bits are on display. Rumours are starting to circulate that he calls himself Nudist because his bass is so warm he doesn’t need clothes. Regardless of what he’s wearing, it won’t be long before you’re stripping off yourself because the room is gonna get very steamy very quickly.

Can You Felix
The only bad thing about Horizon festival is the cold. Felix is bringing the heat tonight though with his massive bashment/carnival vibes straight from tropics across Africa and the Caribbean. If you love a big bouncy drum as much as us then you’re gonna love this guy. Hell, if you love summer you can’t go wrong.

“Ruffneck selector, promoter and a true Soundboy when it comes to beats with bump, flex and bounce. You’ve probably caught Oldboy rinsing raves with bags of UKG, 4×4, sublow, up-to-the-time house and grime, he knows how to stoke the party straaight!” – Swing Ting have got this hype-up covered.

If the Sick Chirpse x Chow Down Birthday Mix from last year is anything to go by, this is gonna be big.

We Are Wolves
Usually seen behind the decks of most fucked up house parties in Manchester sipping straight out of her bottle of gin, We Are Wolves knows nothing other than how to introduce herself to any dance floor with her top repertoire of hip hop bangers.
Oh and, by the way, this guy’s gonna be headlining the main room:
So I guess we’ll fuckin’ see you there.
