Over the last year, when briefcase-clad suits made their way to work near Old Street on Mondays, they unknowingly walked over a banging club tucked deep underground, chock-full of fashionable club goers still wildly clinging on to the weekend. Sunday nights (and Monday mornings, consequently) in London have been irrevocably changed since September 2007, thanks to the notorious, unstoppable Wetyourself crew (named - among other obvious reasons – in relation to the venue for their nights, Club Aquarium, equipped with a pool). Fuelled by their joint desire to bring serious dancefloor hedonism to Sunday nights, yet presenting quality music in an unpretentious way, it’s little wonder that WYS is one of the most loved hot spots on the London circuit.
The artistic trio behind the phenomenon – DJs, promoters and producers Jacob Husley, Peter Pixzel and Cormac – consistently smash Sundays by booking stand out DJs from the local scene, alongside techno, house and electro luminaries from around the globe. The seemingly unending list of DJs that have performed at their cult-followed night is staggering, a veritable who’s-who of dance music: Hannah Holland, Skull Juice, Zombie Disco Squad, Sweat X, Pig & Dan, Miss Kittin, Ellen Allien, The Hacker, Mr Oizo, Sascha Funke, John Acquaviva, Matt Walsh, Rex The Dog, Severino and Tim Paris, to name but a few.
The secret behind WYS’ vibrant success lies in its strong alliance: Cormac, Peter Pixzel and Jacob Husley are each as powerful on their own as they are synergistically…
Jacob Husley: Jacob Trier aka Jacob Husley started his Djing career in 1997 in Denmark, moving to London three years later. Beyond WYS, Husley’s takeover of London nightlife has been vast as a promoter: appointed resident, booker and promoter of Brick Lane’s 1001 in 2004; securing a monthly home at the Rhythm Factory for his party brand TEMBA (Techno-Electro-Minimal-Breaks-Acid) from ’05 until now; becoming booker and resident DJ of The Egg’s ‘Always Fridays’ - now one of London’s biggest Friday nights out in London. Musically, his production partnership with August Jakobsen under the alias Nocturnals led to countless performances at esteemed venues and festival stages around the world, and an EP on Eye Records. 2006 saw their newly-formed Husley & Gunz project (now signed to Rui Da Silva’s Sixty Four Records) rise up with their ‘Sonance’ EP in Oct 06. Most recently, Husley & Gunz have released 3 EP’s on Kismet Records and are due to release their first full-length album by the end of the year.
Cormac: Ever escalating forward, Cormac’s sets have seen him help mould underground London into the soundscape it resembles today. Dates in Japan, Brazil, Mexico, Israel and Europe have meant that Cormac’s been keeping busy, bringing his unique artistic talent of mixing and music to the rest of the world. One half of underground music melody makers Cavalier, Cormac and Peter Pixzel combined their efforts to make the sinister electronic lullaby soundtrack for workday-rebelling Londoners. His recent remixes of One Little Indian artist HK119's ‘C'est La Vie’ single have caused a big stir amongst the scene.
Peter Pixzel: Described as a "One Man Rave," the Copenhagen-born, London-based DJ/producer has been trotting global dancefloors (from Berlin to Tokyo to Milan) for the better part of a decade, making wondrous music every step of the way. Signed to KISMET Records, home of his imaginative remixes and ‘SynthReich’ EP, Peter Pixzel is a prolific producer to keep an eye on, and a brilliantly unpredictable DJ for your head, ears and feet. With beginnings as a house DJ back in 1998 (as resident of Copenhagen’s Mantra nightclub, run by the boss of the legendary Multiplex Records), in-between a myriad of lively gigs Pixzel is currently a resident for both TEMBA and Always Fridays.
