Our first recommendation is:
Butter Side Up with Amir Alexander at Wire Club on Friday 11th January 2013.
At Butter Side Up you are always guaranteed to have a great night. You will be partying alongside the perfect crowd. Also, we love The Wire, such a nice compact venue with an amazing Funktion One sound system, perfect for any underground night.
Wth Amir Alexander (a truly formidable DJ) behind the decks you are going to experience some amazing American influenced underground house. You just can beat them old school vinyl sets. And as for the residents, the never fail to impress.
We definitely recommend this one, here is the link to the Facebook event:
Next, is in my eyes the biggest night of the month. It’s that big, that even though it is sold out we are recommending you find tickets:
Wax:On – Jamie XX, Floating Points, Huxley + more @ Canal Mills on 19th January 2013
This has all of the ingredients of an amazing night. The line up is quite simply… stunning. May we add also, the we have been desperate to see Jamie XX for a while now and this is our chance. I wouldn’t even like to think how much was spent on this line up, will it be worth it?
As for the venue, Canal Mills has quickly cemented itself as one of the best underground clubs in Leeds, if not the best. The venue is amazing, the sound system is amazing and the visuals are amazing. There is no reason not to love everything about this dingy old warehouse… or is there. Referring back to my last post the one problem I do find with here is the crowd, countless amounts of ‘posers’. Obviously, this is depending on the night, but there is no way of knowing what you are going to walk in to. I think however, it is worth the risk for this one.
Have fun dealing with the touts.

Last but not least…
Back To Basics Presents SUPERFREQ with MR C and AFFIE YUSEF at The Garage on January 26th 2013
Back to Basics have been pioneers of the underground scene in Leeds for 21 years and have very much established themselves as “The Party People” and my god do they live up to their reputation. No promoter can throw a night like this, the atmosphere, the crowd, the DJs and their choice of venue is all carefully selected to bring a true experience for anyone who has a love for the music.
The Garage is exactly what it says on the tin… a garage. Recently winning the best small club award from DJ Mag and in the top 10 for Mixmag it is safe to say you do not win this sort of recognition from such established brands for no reason. Recently reequipping themselves with a nice set of Funktion Ones. One thing that does stand out about The Garage is their staff, nothing ever seems to much and you always feel at home, unlike some other venues.
We think this is one event that can NOT be missed. Here is the link to the Facebook for more information on this event:
