Despite the early arrival of summer, ravers packed out the Tobacco Dock for another quality party. This time it was the turn of Abode to bring their unique vibe back to the beloved venue.
After flying through the doors and sourcing drinks we headed to straight for the main room catching the final moments of what seemed like a huge set from WIll Taylor. From dominating the London club scene, Taylor became an Abode resident back in 2014 and has since become a household name, clocking in for gigs across Europe and beyond. Whatever he pulled in the Great Gallery, the crowd were as eager as ever, ready for more house magic.
Who better to provide this magic than the Ibizan heroes, Mambo Brothers. These Ibizan brothers have been turning heads for all the right reasons since 2015. They’ve taken their balearic beats from the iconic sunset strip in Ibiza all across the world. This time it was the turn of Wapping’s Tobacco Dock to get a taste.
Fresh off the back of their debut release on Abode’s label, ‘Slow’ the brothers wasted no time getting into their groove. Laying down banger after banger, the packed out Great Gallery was seriously getting into the vibes. Their infectious energy grew with each passing moment, hands down a stand out set from a party that was now really getting into the swing of things.
Following the epic set from the Mambo Brothers was another Abode resident, GW Harrison. This guy has been smashing it recently, so expectations for his performance were high, though for someone who got his first set of decks aged 12 everything was under control. He rinsed out a serious mix of house and tech, keeping the Great Gallery moving.
Once GW Harrison had finished his fresh mix of quality music he handed over the the special guest of the night - Richy Ahmed. He’s been at the forefront of the UK house scene for time now, so his appearance at Abode was more than welcomed. He smashed his set, standard, before handing over to the legendary Erick Morillo.
Following his last performance at the Dock last year would be no easy feat, though the house legend torn through his set with a another incredible selection of tunes. His energy behind the decks is unrivalled, his enjoyment oozes through his music and his technical skills make ever the harshest critics get down to the groove.
That signed off another mind- blowing party at the Dock. Despite two house legends coming through, the show was really blown away with the outstanding performances from Mambo Brothers & GW Harrison. They built up the crowd in the best possible way for the epic finale, legends in the making...
