WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS 2nd Birthday
Well it turns out as expected that We Are Your Friends was unreal! The best night i have had in Bournemouth and definitely one of the best out of most places i've been. I started off the night from 10.30 until just before 12 with some electro/hip hop/ baseline. Loved it, that and the set the previous thursday at Big In Japan at the awesome Dusk Till Dawn are the best sets i've done to date. The crowd were sick and all got well into it. Following me was Ste-V-Something mixing out of my end tune (Foamo's remix of Mystery Jets, Half in love with Elizabeth) into Chase And Status' Against all odds featuring Kano. As always his set was impressive to say the least and the crowd loved it.
Then for the first headliner.. and what a fucking headliner. Example was blinding. His set was filled with energy with the crowd pressed up against the barriers with what seemed like an army at the front who seemed to know every word. If you want to listen to more of Example check out his myspace below, from there you can go to links for mixtapes and new tunes.. get downloading!
Or download his new mixtape The Credit Munch.. mixed by DJ Wire with banging tunes from the likes of Jack Beats, A1 Bassline, Chase and Status, MJ Cole, Herve, Devil's Gun and Don Diablo. Example recreates the tunes using his lyrics. It is fantastic.. get it here:
Following Example it was time for the final headliners.. Andy George and Jaymo. Apart from being really good lads they were ofcourse on form behind the decks. The end of the night finished with them and Ste-V-Something mixing it up to the most excitable crowd i have ever seen. While this went on all those involved in WAYF were on stage mashing it up reminiscent of the Ed Banger Parties in Paris. I think the night ended on Mr Oizo's rendition of Killing in the name of, but a running theme of the night was shortly played before.. Skream's lets get ravey remix of In for the kill by La Roux. The crowd, the djs and probably those not even at the Old Fire Station went fucking mental.
Check Out Andy George & Jaymo on Myspace
