Introducing: Timing

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.

The repetitive music and hypnotic atmosphere melt the hours away, and reject the rigid ticking of the clock. But, at the […]

A chat with…Minor Science

The UK underground dance music zeitgeist is soundtracked by the post-dubstep techno sound of London. It is bass-heavy, beautifully produced and often mind bending music, constructed from killer breaks and abstract sounds. Labels such as The Trilogy Tapes and Whities are leading this movement. Both are immaculately presented, placing art and fashion on level with their fresh-sounding […]

A chat with…Finn Johannsen

The next instalment of Acetate will once again exhibit selectors of world class calibre.

The Best of Bukem

Wire has had a rich history in pioneering drum & bass. Anyone who was clubbing in Leeds over five years ago will remember that Central Beatz and Momentum’s club nights under Call Lane always hit the genre’s sweet spot, pushing things further underground and creating all-round good times for punters. The drum & bass legend, LTJ […]

Nick Craddock to play at Butter Side Up’s Friends and Family Party

Butter Side Up has been rolling out the big name line ups for a number of years now. Hunee, Margaret Dygas and Marcellus Pittman have been its most recent visitors to the Wire basement, and played storming sets. But the night wouldn’t work without a rugged backbone of residents.
