VALVE WAREHOUSE PROJECT LAUNCHES SATURDAY 14TH MARCH

• Brand new sound system and a fresh program of nights.
• Launch takes place on Saturday 14th March with DDD & Remote Area.
London Bridge is steeped in clubbing history. Back when Acid House and rave culture was at its peak, there were a huge number of illegal parties springing up in the area. Now in 2009 with the closure of so many clubs in the last 2 years, it would seem that the area is about to undergo a revival as the majority of London’s largest brands look towards south of the river for new homes.
James Manero is the main man behind Valve. After moving on from Bar Rumba late last year, James has decided to go it alone and in setting up Valve Music, and more specifically, the Valve Warehouse Project his aim is to provide something a little more underground for London’s clubbing faithful.
“For years clubs have been slowly becoming more and more corporate in their approach to clubbing, which is natural, as ultimately the scene has developed from being about a load of kids getting off to music, to being a true business. But at the same time, maybe some of the original passion and vibe that came with the underground nature of these parties has been lost. The Valve Warehouse Project is an attempt to get back some of that original underground spirit for which London used to be so famous for”.
And where better for the Valve project to be based than one of London’s last remaining underground venues, Jacks. Opened 3 years ago by Euan Johnston, Jacks has been the definition of underground, only open on the weekends and hosting a number of psytrance and techno parties including Tresor and the legendary Haywire Sessions, the raw feeling of Jacks suits the Valve Warehouse Project perfectly.
The new program kicks off with DDD’s new monthly residency. Their first foray south of the river features 2000andOne as part of his album tour, supported by Lauhaus.
"The musical philosophy behind Valve Music is to represent everything that is cutting edge and underground, so you can expect Techno, Disco, Dubstep, House and everything in between".
