With close to a million likes on their Facebook page, Stanton Warriors will be the most popular act that IndyMojo has brought to the Mousetrap in Altered’s 5 year existence. Making this Thurzday a promising night for a wall to wall dance marathon of epic proportions. SW are not just a name, they are a duo of pure talent, pioneers in the world of breaks and masters of what they like to call Rebel Bass. There is no denying it, we are all in for a treat and a one of a kind intimate experience that will be unforgettable.
Since bursting onto the scene with their multi award-winning compilation “The Stanton Sessions” back in 2001, the Stanton Warriors’ irresistible and inimitable sound has consistently remained the soundtrack to some of the world’s biggest and best parties over the past thirteen years; from East London warehouses, Miami boat parties and illegal Detroit raves, to the stages of Glastonbury, Exit, Burning Man, Ultra and Coachella, selling out global tours and topping DJ lists along the way.
In August 2013, Vice‘s music blog, Thump, premiered the video for “Cut Me Up”. Shot in Los Angeles, the video is a character vignette of a fictional gang of skaters named the Stanton Warriors. Much has been made over its presentation of the role reversal position of the city’s gang problem. It premiered on MTV in September. The video was directed by Edward John Drake.
In the studio, Bristol’s Mark Yardley and Dominic Butler have honed a trademark, uncategorisable sound that is at once all their own, but also utterly indefinable, leading to high-profile releases on XL Records, Fabric, Cheap Thrills, Central Station and Universal, alongside official remixes for everyone from Daft Punk and Fatboy Slim, to MIA and Gorillaz. This phenomenal output and remarkable longevity has ensured the Stanton Warriors legendary status amongst not only their fans, but also their peers, as they remain fresh, original and relevant; obstinately dancing to beat of their own drum and helping to pave the way for new talent.
In 2013 alone, the Stanton Warriors topped the Beatport charts (again), inspired Disclosure’s Grammy-nominated album Settle, got Annie Mac dancing on her living room carpet, opened London’s 3k capacity Building Six club, saw their podcast shoot to No. 3 in the iTunes chart and smashed the stages of Coachella, Ultra and Glastonbury.
In 2014, the Stanton Warriors typically show no sign of slowing down, with sold-out Stanton Sessions tours across the USA and UK, a brand new album with a tonne of exciting collaborations, including Claude Von Stroke’s Dirtybird-signed Cause & Affect, main stage slots at London’s SW4 and Miami’s Ultra festivals and a slew of exciting releases on their own tastemaker label Punks.
