A chat with…Resom

We are always excited to see who Pearson Sound brings along to play at his Acetate night. As well as huge names such as Four Tet, his feelers extend to the more underground selectors that he has come across on his travels. Resom is one of them. Her work as a touring DJ, resident at ://about […]

Introducing: Alter

This introduction is actually something of a re-introduction. The Alter lads, led by Nick and Jamie Collins, put on their first parties at Wire just over a year ago: murky, mid-week underground raves featuring Tin Man, Oliver Ho and Matt Walsh whose success allowed them to move onto Mint Club for a few more glamorous […]

Introducing: Toby Nicholas

Leeds knows how to throw a party. Anyone that comes through the city as a student or worker acquires some of that special wisdom, whether it be in selecting records, promoting or just dancing.

The DJs’ heightened awareness of the vinyl record landscape seems […]

A chat with…Annie Errez

We e-mailed Mint Club resident, Strobewax Records creator, Mosaic-released producer and one of Leeds’ finest exports Annie Errez before her set at Butter Side Up alongside Daniel Bell, reflecting on her time as a DJ and music lover in our city.   How long have you been in Leeds? What was your introduction to life here? […]

Interview: Lord of the Tings

The overwhelming feeling conveyed by a lot of music coming out of our cities at the moment is irony. Would you expect anything less from a post-9/11 British youth? Our country’s inimitable, incisive sense of humour is a genuine reason to feel patriotic. It’s a fantastic way of coping with things: at once positively engaging with politics and also […]
