Review – Flux Halloween Special

On October 31st, Flux hosted their annual Halloween event at one of Leeds’ all time favourite venues, Beaverworks. As expected, Flux did not spare any expenses when it came to the decor: the venue was kitted out with suitably spooky decorations and the nights’ revellers were looking their best. From corpse brides to killer clowns, Beaverworks was an impressive scene. With hair raising themed rooms like the Sacrifice Chamber, The Dungeon, Day of the Dead Warehouse, Witches Cauldron and of course the Haunted House, it was ensured that these areas to boogie would leave your spines tingling for the whole evening.

Doors opened at 10:00pm with crowds spilling out onto the street, not long after 11:00pm the venue was rammed and Beaverworks’ usual bonfire was in full swing. An especially nice touch, that added a whole other dimension to the night was Flux’s small firework display; it almost made if feel like you’d been transported to the middle of a park somewhere instead of a gritty Leeds industrial estate.

As always, Flux did not disappoint when it came down to providing Leeds with some of the hottest house, techno and disco music around. Flux resident and master of all things disco, Reuben, took to the stage with an impressively upbeat opening performance from 1:30-3:00am. He threw down Late Nite Tuff Guy’s remix of ‘Burning Down The House’ by Talking Heads that left the hyped up dancers ready for more. Moomin, one of house music’s finest new artists, flaunted his sweet and sensual vibes down in The Dungeon, and Mickey J left the crowds ears bleeding over in the Witches Cauldron. Flux goers were also treated to a legendary house and disco set from Gerd Janson, co-runner of impressive German record label ‘Running Back’.

Look out for Flux’s Christmas Party on December 11th. Boasting a line up that includes Kosme and Deetron, it will be a festive event you won’t want to miss!
