One of Leeds’ most celebrated party curators; Butter Side Up never fail to disappoint. Their innovative artist choices, ability to promote a friendly and welcoming climate and their sheer dedication to ensuring everyone has an unforgettable experience always accounts for an unforgettable night.
Previous guests have included Ostgut Ton’s Nick Höppner and Tama Sumo, Hunnee, Margaret Dygas, Jane Fitz, Theo Parrish, Motor City Drum Ensemble and many, many more. Surely that alone shows their impressively open-minded approach to showcasing artists that can be enjoyed by a range of music lovers. This time round it’s their 6th Birthday, and Swiss selector Sonja Moonear will be sermonising the symphony, no doubt combining her eclectic taste and hefty experience to take onlookers on a journey through the heart and soul of funk, house, minimal and everything in between.
Having released on globally recognised prestigious labels such as Karat and Perlon, Sonja is a highly sought after DJ with an organic and self built reputation, purely grown from her own technical talent and ability to amalgamate standard musical genres. Combine Butter Side Up’s passion for expanding the boundaries of music within Leeds alongside Sonja’s deeply rooted passion for music and mixing, and the results are sure to be exquisite. Especially when you factor in Wire’s flawless Funktion One sound system… one of the best in the UK.
Whether you’re a first timer or a loyal Butter Side Up follower, make sure you get down to Wire on Friday because otherwise you’ll be missing out on a truly world class performance right on your doorstep.
