Gatecrasher Wet is the third Andrew Gallagher produced album for Gatecrasher, released in 1999.

Release[edit]

On 26 July 1999, the Sheffield-based club Gatecrasher released their third album, titled Gatecrasher Wet. Despite the massive success of the Gallagher produced albums Gatecrasher Black (1998) and Gatecrasher Red (Feb 1999) the third installment was initially rebuked by Simon Raine and Scott Bond due to the Northern expression "don't talk wet", but Gallagher to persevered with his concept, explaining that its release date would coincide with what was to be an incredible summer of dance music. The album debuted at #3 in the UK compilation charts.

Presentation[edit]

Gallagher's previous two Gatecrasher albums had a unique look and feel in their presentation (velvet covers with golden lettering for the special editions) his third installment didn't disappoint, with a card digipack, layered with slippery plastic for the water droplet effects, and the lion logo. The tag line on the back of the album showed true confidence in the album; "Immerse yourself in the greatest dance album of the summer..." The inner contained a bold yellow booklet to continue the summer theme, and 2 teal blue discs, named Aqua and Sub respectively.

Sound[edit]

Scott Bond once again mixed the album and gave the album a 'Wet' feel and theme, with a selection of songs that gave wet, Ibiza sound. Saltwater by Chicane - one of the years big hits, was added to the album which tried to reflected the sounds that people associate with the summer - bright, wet, and uplifting.

Disc 1, named 'Aqua' had the more variety of sounds and rhythms, whilst Disc 2, named 'Sub' had a "harder" sound to it.
