WORDS: Ketoloco

A lot has happened in six years. We’ve gone legal for one thing, moving from our now much mythologised basement in Headingly to clubs around Leeds and Ibiza, before coming of age in London. We’ve forged tight relationships with a number of our headliners (and regulars, of course) with one of those being tonight’s ringmaster, Solomun. So too have we offered up plenty of exclusives, as will be the case when Hot Lunch aka Ewan Pearson and Sasse step up to the booth on October 27th. Because we’re shifting for this event to underground haunt Cable, we’ll have a tasty second room, hosted by Bad Apple & Quantize with Buckley, Chris Stanford and the Bad Apple clan all joining us.

The shift to Cable is to keep things, fresh – the club has a world class Nova line array sound system with a gnarly, crisp and bassy bottom end. The raw, stripped bare Victorian arches the club hides in has exposed air ducting, an industrial vibe and plenty of high end lighting, though still feels intimate and personal. We’ve been regulars there for three years, and it’s taken almost as long to finally get our foot in the door!

Solomun helped us turn 5 in fine style a year ago up north and owned our terrace back in 2010, and since then has continued to grow in stature around the world. His Diynamic label has never been hotter, whilst the Croatian’s own catchy disco-house edits are increasingly hot properties. As are his DJ sets, naturally joining the dots between an array of emotive sounds from house through tech and on to disco at places like Watergate, Sankeys Ibiza and Brazil’s Warung.

Hot Lunch is a partnership between friends, studio buddies and label co-bosses (Machinists) Ewan Pearson and Sasse. Pearson is a venerated studio wizard who, as well as producing his own essential cuts and remixes, adds polish to the work of acts like Fuck Buttons and Footprintz plus many more. Of course, his fabric mix is one of the series enduring finest, whilst Sasse’s deep house label Mood Music is equally well regarded. Together they’ll play an exclusive and extended set that will surely blow us all away.

Close friends of ‘Loco and stalwart underground pioneers in London’s techno scene, Quantize take room two with highly regarded (the likes of NRK’s Ed Davenport consider him one of the best) spinner and producer Chris Stanford. Ex Hacienda and current Back to Basics resident Buckley comes and plays, too, no doubt chuffed his recent productions on VIVa and Hot Creations are getting the attention they deserve. To ensure you really get your fill, deeper house, nu-disco and a touch of tech will be served up by the Bad Apple DJs in the same room.
