Bigger Than Barry @ The Rainbow Warehouse

The Bigger Than Barry phenomenon continues apace with the fervently anticipated hosting of Major Lazer. No doubt their mash up masterpiece, ‘Guns Don’t Kill People, Lazers Do,’ will be a heavy weight contender for album of the year, but it’s the live sound system that is sucking in the thousands through the door of The Rainbow Warehouse tonight.

The snare cracks of ‘Hold The Line’ are met with a fierce sea of arms raised to the roof and hips winding round the dance floor – even Blue Whale finds it impossible not to shake its arse like Borat with a flare up of piles. The auto-tune dancehall mayhem of latest single, ‘Keep it Goin Louder,’ signals a climax to the set with the bass rumbling so hard it makes our nostrils twitch.

Bigger than Major.
