Warehouse Republic start Turning Tricks.
12th November – Turning Tricks
launches at This Feeling, Queen Of Hoxton
2012 New EP, tours and confirmed festival slots.
A blistering quartet that formed in late 2010, Warehouse Republic’s sharply crafted songs, musicianship and incendiary live performances have started a buzz on the radar of music taste makers.
Fast forward eleven months from their first show at The 100 Club to a growing presence on line, introductions and accolades in national and independent media (including Music Week and Classic Rock Magazine) with their music being championed by BBC Radio, Frank Skinner on Absolute Radio, Q Radio and Total Rock.
Since formation the band has been surrounded and supported by a musical and art collective, headed by internationally up and coming visual artist, Eugene Ankomah, whose fans range from Dizzee Rascal to Downing Street. Their involvement includes published Beatall Juice (art magazine showcasing the work of their creative friends and fans).
Musically, Warehouse Republic are absorbing young urban producers, rap artists and DJs into a fresh, genre-spanning collective.
The project will launch with a special live show on 12th November at the increasingly legendary This Feeling club, and lead to the release of an EP in Spring 2012.
Warehouse Republic have made available a collection of works tracing the progressive sound of the band from formation until today. Lead track, Turning Tricks samples Jay-Z's Empire State Of Mind and is a bold statement of intent for 2012.
