On April 23, 2010, Randy Credo and Timothy Lin formed a new duo in the lightshow world. Also known as Intake and Domo, the duo had the idea of taking the hobby of gloving to the next, uncharted level. This idea would soon grow to become Team Whomp. These two had created a signature form of lightshows with the help of William Kietly and Michael Huang. Will and Michael shared their experience with a form of synchronized, double lightshow which would develop into Intake and Domo’s signature style. Around September, Intake and Domo decided that they should come up with a name to be identified by. As these two were some of the few glovers who loved the deep and “filthy” basslines of dubstep, they found the name “Whomp” to be suitable. Intake and Domo spent most of their practice time using dubstep, as opposed to typical genres of EDM used by glovers today. Almost a year and a half later, Team Whomp decided to expand. After learning and adapting to Team Whomp’s signature style, TimEbomb and Kuma were added.
As lightshows have gone under the spotlight for the drug connotations that have come with it, we at Team Whomp have vowed to separate the art from drugs. Whomp now stands for “We Hate on Meth and Pills,” and we as an organization promote responsible raving. We love what we do, and we want to share the Whomp experience with the world. Please, join us in the fight against irresponsibility and support us! If you love raves and lightshows like we do, help us keep it alive.
