Leeds will play host to a very special booking at Wire this Friday as Butter Side Up presents motor city veteran Mike Huckaby.
As well as being both a DJ and producer, Mike Huckaby has also described himself as “a sound designer and an educator”. Taking the Detroit legends background into account as a notorious crate-digger with an astonishing knowledge of dance music from Michigan to Berlin it’s easy to see why.
Huckaby has notoriety for being a furiously active remixer, producing tracks on his two labels, S Y N T H and Deep Transportation. He’s also gained positive renown for his project Youthville, which sets out to educate and motive young adults in inner-city Detroit in the art of music production.
Huckaby is a figure with a deep and clear understanding of the dynamics, ancestry and culture encompassing dance music, specifically deep house and techno. For this reason we can look forward to a unique and totally unpredictable set this Friday, if you haven’t already got your tickets, get them HERE.
