When: Throughout 2012 and into 2013
Music: Techno with a little house
It’s the day after the iconic Frankfurt club filed for administration and closed its doors. But if Sven Väth has taught us anything it’s that the party never stops.
Tonight is the final leg of the ‘Cocoon Heroes Worldwide’ for 2012.
At Great Suffolk Street Warehouse, Room 2 fills up fast as Carl Craig lays the foundations for a six-hour B2B marathon with Cassy. We head to the main room, where Sven is at the controls, bouncing around as the crowd cheers and punches the air at every drop.
Back in Room 2 the Carl and Cassy show ramps up a notch. As the music journeys through the many shades of house and techno the crowd cling on and enjoy the ride. One heavy-set guy in a cardigan, standing propped up against a wall like a discarded doll, is suddenly reinvigorated by the crisp beats and charged atmosphere and jerks into life.
As the night draws to a close, Craig grabs the mic: “Thanks to Cassy for keeping it real. And thanks to you. It’s all about passion for the music” – something that, after more than 30 years, Cocoon boss Väth has got in spades.
