WetYourSelf! is the weekly Sunday night Party at fabric London. On a weekly basis, the artistic force behind the phenomenon, DJs and producers Jacob Husley, Peter Pixzel and Cormac, pour their energy into a packed dancefloor.
Their frequent 3-way back to back sessions are legendary, with the crowd feeding off their obvious child-like excitement for the musical journey they are at the helm of. Their desire to create serious dance floor hedonism, yet present quality music in an unpretentious way, has irrevocably changed Sunday nights in London.
WYS! club guests have included luminaries from around the globe, including: Jeff Mills, Mathew Jonson, Alex Under, Argy, Ben Klock, Chris Liebing, DJ Hell, Ellen Allien, Gaiser, Kiki, Marc Houle, Marcel Dettman, Martinez, Miss Kittin, Oxia, Sascha Funke, Sebastien Leger, SMD, Stephan Bodzin and Style Of Eye plus many others.
"- When did WetYourSelf begin and what was the idea behind?
WYS! started in 2007. At the time we were 3 guys DJing separately all over London and involved in different scenes. We joined forces at the Aquarium club with the intention of presenting quality music in an unpretentious way, on the most relaxed night of the week. We wanted to embrace the east end scene but put the music first. Very quickly we found out that we worked great as a trio and have been working together since
- Was it important to do it on a Sunday? How are Sunday nights usually in London?
Sundays are Special. It feels really naughty to be out on a Sunday night and that creates this very special vibe. Like when your walking out of the club on Monday morning 8am with a big smile and sunglasses and the rest of London is stressing about getting to work on time. Also, Sundays are much more relaxed and attract a much more relaxed crew. The pressure of Friday and Saturdays is long gone by Sunday, leaving a very special number of party people.
- How do you choose your guests for the WYS parties? Are there some criteria?
Well as a trio, we are close enough musically but also different enough to make things interesting. Our bookings represent our meeting points in terms of taste. If we like what we are hearing then certainly an artist may well become a WYS! guest. Our bookings have always been a mix of talent that impresses us, that might be a worldwide recognised name, or it might be the guy playing in a london house party somewhere who plays an amazing set that we all love.
- Could you have done the same in another club than Fabric London?
Well, we did do it at another club for 2 years, but Fabric has been the perfect place to grow and evolve.
- You are broadcasting these parties live on Awdio. Why the live experience is important to you ?
It's another way to give people a taste of what we are doing, mainly for those who can't be at the club for one reason or another. It's important that its live, what happens vibe wise in the booth translates to the floor and to the audience. You can hear it in the mix. Awdio is perfect for this.
- How do you link the parties and the label?
The label is celebrating its 2nd birthday on the 26th of this month. All our headlining artists on this date have remixed or released original material on the label. The label is a representation of the club and of the 3 of us as individuals, in this way it is as diverse as our bookings.We have freedom to release anything we like as long we all 3 can get behind it.
It's increasingly true that our label artists become part of our events, as we are showcasing more and more WYS! related artists at our parties across the globe.
We have WYS! recordings events planned in Copenhagen and Brazil which we are very much looking forward to.
- What are your upcoming projects on WYS?
Lot's more music on WetYourSelf! Recordings, including Original music and remixes by Tomas More, App, Fabrizio Maurizi, Thomas Muller, Martin Dawson MHMone, Adam Stacks + more.
As well as this we are just about to finalise our second range of WetYourSelf! t-shirts which is a collaboration with our resident illustrator Martin Wollerstam.
Further more we are branching out further in this wonderful world and will be hosting WetYourSelf! parties from Denmark to Brazil -Stay tuned"
