While a less varied offering than last week’s Outlook launch party, 19 April’s The Tuesday Club was headlined by up-and-coming Liverpool DJ duo Camelphat, whose diverse range of high quality house music has won over tastemakers such Annie Mac and gained them an impressive following. The duo will spend the summer on a huge tour, which kicked off with their Tuesday Club appearance and will take in locations ranging from Ibiza to Paris.
With events relocated to the smaller Studio as opposed to TTC’s usual home of Foundry, the night was kicked off by highly promising up-and-coming producer Cloonee. Gaining huge popularity on social media with tracks such as ‘Want It’ and ‘Separated’, he is definitely one to watch over the coming months and an improvement in quality since he supported Eats Everything was noticeable. While most people waited until Solardo was on to get up onto the dancefloor, this was not a fair reflection of a high quality and atmospheric set from Cloonee.
Solardo upped the levels further with ambient, expansive deep house which was accompanied by impressive visuals. The smaller location of Studio gave more of a house party feel to the night, and the quality didn’t let up with a series of selections that were handpicked to work the crowd. Staples of the genre from producers such as Jackmaster made an impression on the crowd, and Solardo put his ninety minute slot to good use with the biggest tunes saved until the end once the atmosphere had built.
Finally, headliners Camelphat played out the night with tunes rooted in deep and tech house. An array of dance anthems from the pair had the whole room moving through propulsive rhythms mixed in with elements of other genres of dance music and hip-hop. Their wealth of new material sounded great, and testament to the exciting things that lie ahead for Camelphat as they continue to ascend in the house scene. Extended build-ups and pauses preceded enormous jobs with basslines that grabbed everyone’s attention and compelled them to dance. Mixing the intense and the euphoric, Camelphat’s performance – in a similar way to Cloonee and Solardo’s slots – was a real success in winning over a relatively small crowd, in an intimate setting, to produce a great vibe throughout.
