The UK does What Hannah Wants: Review
Over the last few years Hannah Wants has become one of the biggest names in bass house. The self taught DJ from Birmingham took her What Hannah Wants tour around the UK and was a complete sell out. With a ten events tour it only seems right that the closing night was in her home town at the Textile Factory of the Rainbow Venues. The night had long been a sold out and our very own Lilith Hunt-Sheppard was there to tell us all about it.
You sometimes forget, just how many venues Rainbow Venues have, so this was the first time we had been to the Textile Factory. The line up for the What Hannah Wants tour was top notch and the previous day’s announcement that Katy B washer special guest was an awesome bonus. As we queued up to get in we knew that we were going to be in for a real treat right through till 6am.
We got here just after 11pm and there was already a growing crowd of ravers eagerly wanting to see the main lady herself. Devstar was on the decks and really got people going with his great miss of tracks. To be honest, the night was filled with highlights especially when one of our favourites, Sam Divine from the Defected label, hit the decks. The crowd was continuing to grow as the warehouse packed out and everyone went wild when Katy B took to the stage. Singing her top hits as everyone danced and sung along with her, she really pumped everyone up before introducing Hannah Wants to the stage.
We have seen Hannah Wants several times and she never fails to get a crowd pumped and tonight was no exception. Her playlist of bass house tracks was amazing with a couple of unexpected songs dropped into the mix. Smoke machines blasted out across the crowds and lasers lit up the warehouse as everyone was raving. It was evident that Hannah Wants was having as much fun as we were as she played to the cheering crowd. Local lad Tom Shorterz later took to the decks as everyone continued to dance the night away to his deep style of music.
As the night came to a close and the hyped up crowds filtered out, it was easy to see why the tour had been such a success. Our only issue with the night was the woman’s toilets, as they were a battle to get in and out but it was a small price to pay to be part of such a stellar night.
If you want to know more about Hannah Wants, keep an eye out for our summer issue in June when we will be talking to the lady herself about music, following your dreams and being a proud Brummie.
