81 Leeds is the spin off event of Loefah’s near-legendary Swamp 81 label.
Since 2009, Swamp’s bass heavy productions, originating from Loefah’s links with DMZ and the dubstep scene, have been turning a serious number of heads from all corners of the club music world.
The label’s name is taken from the the stop and search laws put in place in 1981 in Brixton that directly lead to the widespread race riots of that year. Despite this emotionally charged bond with London, Swamp also finds a home in the Wire basement, which chimes with the label’s dark aesthetic.
Expect to hear savage tracks of bass, grime, techno, dubstep, and anything that gets your blood pumping.
None of these club nights are scheduled at the moment.
