Here are various things that have been written about us by the press:

Here is a transcript of a Time Out review of our October 2007 Party:
Time Out’s first preview of Wang in 2000 described it as putting ‘an end to further back-in-the-day nostalgia by moving on from where the so-called old guard left off’. It is not the case for tonight’s shindig seven years later, however, as the Wang crew appear to be getting soggy at the very thought of Gerald Simpson (aka A Guy Called Gerald) and Graham Massey (of 808 State) reuniting here.
Not that you can blame them – it’s the first time the two UK house legends have played live together since the second summer of love (we’re talking 1989) and who hasn’t basked in the classic ‘Pacific State’ or ‘Voodoo Ray’ at some point in their clubbing career? It’s a big deal for a crowd who are as keen on the classic tracks as they are on fresh and hard-hitting electronic genius.
It’s no surprise then that Simian Mobile Disco are tagging along. It’s a rare chance to catch the infectious twosome for those that couldn’t elbow their way into their storming Scala show last Thursday. Wang has a fine habit of showcasing future stars before they shoot off into the stratosphere. It throws them in with maverick masters like Andrew Weatherall and the result is not incongruous as you might expect. Young guns this time are Uncle Buck, a duo touted as the next Chemical Brothers (but then again, who hasn’t been these days?) who have barely had time to forge their own sound but are, even so, going to erupt. They’ve already graced Ibiza Rocks, Glastonbury and Fabric and their electro-house re-rubs should tear the roof off these fine-art studios. Andrew Weatherall is popping in, so isn’t it about time you popped your Wang cherry? It’s only fair on your ears.

Here is a transcript of a Time Out review from May 2000:
Trip, Shoom, Zap. The names of many seminal clubs describe an emotional high, because through music, mates, and magic, that's what they were about. Wang is no exception - but it puts an end to further back-in-the-day nostalgia by moving on from where the so called old guard left off. 'People always want to recapture the old vibe,' says effervescent promoter Lula, 'but you can't do it by playing the same old tunes. We wanted to put on a night for all the new, really out-there music, and also for live acts.'
Wang finally came together when Lula saw the Premises. 'I scoured London before I found it. The people are so friendly, and the place has a perfect house party atmosphere.' It looks like a house too: with a flight of steps, a proper front door and even a hallway leading into the world of Wang. A bar space winds away down into three small rooms, each one grooving to spaced-out undulations of sound centred on the finest electro and pioneering noise. DJs like Process and Jon Reynolds are 'friends who are into what we're doing,' she adds.
'I know it sounds corny but it's about people coming together and having a good time.' Wang is that rare place that combines the best elements of its small party origins and the quality music of a proper night club. We arrived at 2am and our Saturday night seemed to begin again, with my friend declaring that he'd 'never been to anything like this' and dancing non-stop until it finished. So it ended happily too, not with a bang so much as a Wang!
