In club night terms, turning one is a pretty big deal, especially when it keeps on getting stronger with every ‘do. In order to get to know project better Joe Kelly, one half of Project alongside Kristen Morrow, reflected on the past 12 months, spinning through the year by offering up some tracks to summarise each night because really, nothing says it better than music.
If you’ve been going to Project from the start, take a trip down memory lane and if not, get to know. Take it away Joe:
Night 1 : Project presents chaos in the CBD:
Chaos In The CBD – Midnight in Peckham
This song came on close to the end of Chaos in the CBD’s set and topped a great first night for us. A warm groovy deep house track which was what got me into these guys, real crowd pleaser!
Night 2: A night with O’flynn & Izem:
O’Flynn – Tyrion
Enormous track that I had head the previous summer, again another one that got me listening to O’Flynn. I would say this was probably one of my favourite moments at project. It was the last track O’Flynn played and the remaining heads were all bunched up in front of the decks bouncing in sync, it picked the energy levels in the room back up and rounded off a very fun night!
Night 3: Project presents Anthony Naples:
Powder – Afrogran
I have been a big fan of Anthony’s productions for a long time and after seeing him in Porto last summer along with very brief chat we arranged a date for him to come visit Notts! He was awesome and probably the most technical DJ we have had! The most memorable track for me that night was Afrogran by a new producer/DJ called Powder, I was hooked to it and ended up asking Naples for the track that night!.
Night 4: A night with Florist + Lukas Wigflex:
H.O.M – two days with Inor
This was wasn’t our busiest night with a lot of other events going on that night but musically it was probably one of our best. We brought in Canadian producer/DJ Florist to share some of the Canadian Riviera rhythms and Nottingham Bosman Lukas Wigflex. I wanted them to do a b2b session for this event even though they usually play very different stuff and it ended up being epic, Lukas certainly brought out Florist’s inner demon. This tack was one that Florist played not long after the B2b had begun.
Night 5: DJ Fett Burger + LNS:
Osunlade – Mommas Groove
Our favourite night to date! Fett burger is one of my favourite DJs out there at the minute and it was a genuine pleasure to see him do his ting in Nottingham. Both Fett and LNS slayed the decks and kept people dancing right until the lights were turned on. So many amazing tracks that night but I have a soft spot for Osunlade, and I took time out to have a groove to it.
