Review – Move D

3 years ago / 0 comments

The main room at Canal Mills is the mothership of nocturnal reckless abandon in Leeds. You’ve probably had a few heady moments in there of late, watching producing goliaths such as Detroit cool cat Moodymann or maybe even gaudy deep house merchant Gorgon City.

Review – Daniel Avery + Volte Face

3 years ago / 0 comments

Daniel Avery’s second appearance in Leeds this year was a sell-out, owing to his ever-dynamic sound (as proven by recent releases ‘Sensation’ and ‘Clear’), the additional presence of Volte Face (50% of ‘Rote’) and the mystery of the new venue, Headrow House, and how it would deliver a night of techno. … Read More

Shmlss Special Edition Vol. 3 Shmlss’ last release will be familiar to anyone who saw Gerd Janson last year, with their ‘Disco Sensation’ record popping up in a number of his sets.

3 years ago / 0 comments

Upon nights out in Leeds, my relationship with Shazam seems to grow persistently stronger, and within 5 minutes of arriving at Just A Little’s Swinging Speakeasy I knew Saturday night would be no exception. Returning to the good ol’ Canal Mills, Just A Little’s latest booking welcomed a variety of … Read More

Candi Staton – Do Your Duty / Evidence – Pepe Bradock Remixes (Honest Jon’s) When you put disco’s biggest voice together with house’s most revered producer, you get something sensational. No wonder it’s been re-pressed. Side A has a nosebleeding build up that vehemently refuses to drop, while side B … Read More
