For their second event, the truelove. crew bring Adam Port over from Berlin for his usual serving of banging techno music.
After several years of trying, the Butter Side Up crew have finally booked Nicolas Lutz, the Uraguayan breakbeat, house and techno maniac who has all of the tunes that “selectors” across the world want. Given four hours to do his dirty work, there’s little chance you’ll make it out of the club as the same person.
In his sound, visual aesthetic and sheer volume of output, you may be fooled into thinking that Carl Finlow isn’t of this earth. When he does come back down to terra firma, he doesn’t stay still, but traverses it: in the 2000s, probably the height of his powers, Finlow was regularly embarking on world tours, having made a name for […]
To celebrate three years of parties in Leeds, Treehouse are bringing in yet another back to back pairing of dubstep and techno heavyweights, both of whom have released on Hemlock: Randomer and Hodge.
If there’s one thing that Rhythm Section-affiliated anu is an expert in, it is making bodies move. As one of the party’s resident DJs, she has been key to making it not simply an organisation, but a movement (and an international one as its full name suggests). Her radio shows, often calm affairs that trace a history […]
There is a sense in which the ZamZam Sounds label now acts in the same manner as the wellspring of Islamic mythology from which it takes its name. It is an ever-flowing fount of nourishing sounds, all aimed at engaging the spiritual potential of dub-reggae through modern production techniques. Encompassing dubstep, breakbeat, digidub and more, the label […]
We love Daniel Avery at One Night With… We invite him back pretty much every year because, when allowed to play for an extended period of time, he never fails to transcend the dance floor with his singular brand of techno. If you missed out on the last couple of times, or whether it’s your first chance […]
After two years of running amazing parties across Yorkshire, Limit come back to Wire to celebrate the anniversary, inviting Harrison BDP to lead the festivities. We caught up with Matt and Sammy to reflect on the work they have done so far. You are known for your ‘Limit Social’ events. How did you come to put […]
In spite of the amount of DJs in Leeds, and its wealth of new record shops, there is a distinct lack of production here, and even fewer record labels. One group aiming to change that, and with a dollop of panache at that, is Valby Rotary. Now on their third release, premiered by Mixmag, they are starting […]
Club goers and dance music fans have a unique relationship with time. In a way, our aim is to completely overturn the conventions of day and night. We live nocturnally and underground, compelled by darkness and artificial light. The repetitive music and hypnotic atmosphere melt the hours away, and reject the rigid ticking of the clock. But, at the […]
