Personal favorites W&W have been popping up with much more frequency stateside this year with the help of their recent signing to Armada Music Management as well as their continued growth in popularity, and there are no complaints here. I’ve been following the pair since 2007 but did not have the opportunity to see them live until their Mansion Afterparty during Miami Music Week this year. On the eve of their special extended set at Exchange LA, the duo stopped by what may be the best party in San Francisco, Torq Thursdays, to lay down some of their destructive trance and electro sounds.
From their initial dropping of Nowhere To Go, it was evident that the crowd was here to see W&W and weren’t just showing up for a random party, as you could hear the fans clearly singing every word. The set only increased in energy from there, featuring such tracks as their smash hit Shotgun, upcoming release White Label, and Sandro Silva and Quintino’s Epic, which garnered the biggest reaction of the night. Newer hits like Moscow were also on offer, prepping the audience for the upcoming release of their first label compilation, Mainstage: Vol. 1. My personal favorite track was probably their new mashup of Thing Called Love and Spaceman–an absolute crowd destroyer.
Torq and Ruby Skye continue to impress me with the caliber of talent they are bringing in. If you’re in the SF area, be sure to catch Krewella and K Theory next Thursday for a night full of bass music and sing-along vocals. Get your tickets here.
