Mondays Over Thank God!

So, after yet another mental weekend in Leeds, Monday is the day where everyone is blue and reminiscing about what an amazing weekend it has been and are counting down the days until it is Friday again. For all you, ‘live for the weekend’ party goers, this weekend is going OFF! There is one particular night which is making me tingle from the toes up with excitement…

10 YEARS OF CROSSTOWN REBELS @ CANAL MILLS

What a line up! There really is no other city like Leeds. I am already pumped and rearing to go for the weekend and this is helping me get through the long days of the week. The thought of being in the majestical Canal Mills with the likes of Art Department, Damian Lazarus and Francesca Lombardo pumping their blissful upbeat tracks through the clubs incredible sound system, is enough to plan my whole weekend around!

I have received the opportunity to get discounted tickets for the rebel rave for my blog followers you can email me regarding this at katie@duskundergroundmusic.co.uk or by texting 07500964845. I am willing to drop off in areas local to Headingley/Hydepark or I can meet you in Leeds centre.

Thursday Brunch Sounds Like | Lee Sanderson with So Long (Original Mix)

Chase The Compass

It’s a familiar sample we all know and love, but the infectious melody of ‘So long I’ve needed love right near me..’ has been given a welcome new spin by 21 year old Leeds boy and House production up-and-comer, Lee Sanderson. Already widely recognised and adored in his hometown, Lee has released a slew of stella remix’s through Leeds label, Dusk Underground Music including So Long, What Does It Take, and a masterful rework of the hallowed Diana Ross classic, Upside Down. A trip to Leeds may be in order me thinks!

We’re all about supporting young and upcoming talent from around the UK and beyond, so if you have a production or mix you’d like to see on here, shoot us an email at chasethecompass@gmail.com.

So, after Dusks exciting start to 2013 bringing a unique twist to deep house events in Leeds they are moving forward to their next project in the music industry and are launching a record label. After weeks of searching through Sound cloud, Mix cloud, Youtube and Blogs INDRA was discovered with a unique sound to his productions he was the first DJ for DUM to approach. With songs storming on Subsoul YouTube channel and his productions having a unique and creative edge. INDRAs magical and majestic take on garage is like no other. Working extremely hard on his productions and mixing skills only feels right to have him headlining our launch party and making his Leeds debut. It will be a showcase of the artists and all their own creations making it a truly one of a kind night and an experience not to be missed! 

INDRA takes to the decks for Dusk Podcast 004

Easter Weekend Guide

So, its that time of year again when everyones jumps on the easter weekend band wagon and goes on a four day bender! and why not? This is supposed to be a religious weekend and did Jesus not turn water into wine? Point proven that the hidden message was that we are all suppose to be out boozing and spending our weeks wages that we have worked so hard for.

With a large selection of nights on Easter day anyone who is into the house scene has marked Sunday as a very special date on their calendar. There are three nights standing out that will cater to all you house lovers on every level. We have:

The Warehouse 34th Birthday with 2 Many DJS

https://www.facebook.com/events/476185052435846

This event has already sold out and not surprised what a booking. 2 Many DJs are still on my to see yet as I have only heard amazing things about the Belgian duo. Hopefully will be able to track them down somewhere this summer and I will certainly be looking forward to seeing the videos from the night. 

Beat Street at The Garage with Chris Lattner & Brett Jacobs

https://www.facebook.com/events/480683851993457/

If you still have not made it down to The Garage… DO! If a small intimate venue is what tickles your fancy The Garage is the place for you on Sunday. I can not explain the great crowd this club attracts with its underground feel with a twist of style and a chevvy truck you can only really explain that this venue is more of a home away from home. Its success in the past year has been mind blowing with winning best small club of the year in DJ Mag and attracting some of the biggest names in the industry. The Garages nights all meet up to standards and beyond and The Beat Street lads seriously know how to throw a party! With great bookings and residents that smash it out the water every time you know you are in for a treat. This is also the cheapest night of the three so if you are doing Easter Sunday on a budget this is the one for you! Below is a link to Skiddle to purchase your tickets for:

And finally but certainly not least my personal choice:

Canal Mills, Wax:On and Mono_Cult All Day Easter Sunday Party

https://www.facebook.com/events/106249849545287/

Room 1

Maya Jane Coles
Joy Orbison
John Talabot
Ryan Elliot
People Get Real

Room 2

Prins Thomas
PBR Streetgang
Last Waltz
Tom Grainger

Courtyard

Midland
Youandewan 
Matt Long / Brad Mercer / Paul Kaminski
Mike Jones

The second this event popped up on my Facebook news feeds I managed to buy my ticket at the bargain price of £12 with a line up like this I did not even care if i went on my own it was, ‘THE’ event not to be missed. The promoters behind this know how to throw a party and have been bringing nothing but the best acts to Leeds for our enjoyment. If it was anyone I would give brownie points it is this group of people behind this event.

With a line up like this, it is bringing back a bit of Ibiza back into my life. With all day parties at Circoloco every Monday @ DC:10 this sort of line up is meeting that balaeric standard that since being back in this unpredictable weathered country I have missed so dearly. For those who have not got a ticket unlucky for you it should not of been a thinking matter it is a straight YES. 

I will be attending this and will be writing up my review once I have recovered 14 hours of solid partying may take its toll on me but I will be informative as possible with images and videos to match.
