Circo Loco @ Victoria Works
Asylum & Back to Basics presents…
CIRCOLOCO Warehouse Party @ Victoria Works, Leeds
Saturday 17th October
Well, well, well, what a party we have in stall for you this month. For this very special soiree two of the nations finest clubbing institutions have teamed up to bring you a truly remarkable line-up of unforgettable electronic music all inside the extraordinary Victoria Works warehouse. The venue boasts a crystal clear sound system in a proper warehouse space…one word; HUGE!
For the last 6 years, Asylum has grown in to clubbing brand to rival any in the country whilst at home in Leeds it is a sure fire hit with the locals and hoards of travellers. Basics on the other hand has been a firm favourite in the city for the last 17 years, not only that but has been a pioneer of house and electronic music too securing it as a global clubbing institution. Both clubs are ran by two very charismatic individuals and since Asylum’s birth there has been consistent talks between Dave Beer and Tom Thorpe about doing a party together. Now, finally the moment has come and boy is it going to be a special party. So, for their first party together how have the super clubbing brands; Aslyum and Back to Basics decided to commemorate this occasion? They have decided to host a warehouse party with the most infamous clubbing brand on the planet, Circoloco.
Circoloco rests its weary heads at none other than DC:10 in Ibiza, the now legendary; almost mythical club which hosts the infamous Monday day time parties. Since its inception, Circoloco has too developed into a global player on the dance music circuit and you can find its crew of residents playing at various parties across the globe. Fortunately for them they probably have the biggest list of underground Dj’s as residents on the planet including dj’s such as Luciano, Tania Vulcano, Ricardo Villilobos and plenty more who will be gracing our massive warehouse party in Leeds. And what about the line up for this seminal warehouse party in Leeds? Well, don’t say we don’t spoil you because we have invited Timo Mass, Tania Vulcano, Tato, Jamie Jones, Clive Henry, Simon Baker, Buckley, Dave Beer B2B Tom Thorpe, PBR Streetgang, Negghead and Andy Whitaker. Now that’s what I call a line-up!
First up on the bill we have one of the finest Dj’s, producers and remixers on the planet. Hailing from electronic music haven; Germany, Timo has had releases on Cocoon, Ultra and Ministry of Sound whilst having the pleasure of remixing everyone from Madonna to Depeche Mode to Jamiroquai to Kelis.Timo is widely regarded as one of the pioneers of the tech-house and minimal movement and dj sets are always show-stopping.
Tania Vulcano & Tato
Tania is probably Circoloco’s main residents. She was amongst the first wave of dj’s to join the infamous brand over ten years ago. Her musical style and legendary dj sets formed the bench mark at DC 10, giving her instant respect and recognition on a global level. She will be playing an exclusive three hour set alongside fellow dj Tato, a U.K first.
JJ is no stranger to Leeds and has murdered many a dance floor in a city which must be one of his favourite cities to play. As well as having releases on labels such as Crosstown Rebels, Cocoon, Get Physical and Poker Flat Jones’ debut album is just about to drop too.
Formerly of tribal house due Peace Division Clive can now be found all around the world repping the Circoloco brand as one of its most reverred residents. Behind the decks Clive is a special talent, and anyone that was at Asylum last year will remember just how special he can be.
A bit of home-grown now with Simon Baker. Long time Asylum resident the last year for Baker has been mental. Largely since the release of his global smash Plastik Baker has taken to the internatioanal clubbing circuit like a fish to water and is carving his way as one of the hottest talents around.
Time for another local boy, Basic’s resident Buckley has crafted his art over the years. Beginning his dj career at non other than the institute of British house music, the Hacienda in Manchester. It is undeniable how much talent this guy has actually got, but what is even surer is that he knows how to work a crowd like no other.
Dave Beer B2B Tom Thorpe
And now a very special and rare treat. The two founding fathers of these seminal club nights go back to back for one night only. I’m sure you’ll have to see it to believe it, it may even be the highlight of the night.
After a summer spent playing Glastonbury, Space Ibiza and Croatia these boys get back home turf for a warhouse party Leeds style.
Dan Ward has spent the summer as resident at Ibiza’s Cafe Mambo whilst getting ready for his album to drop on Nightmares on Wax’s imprint Wax:on Records.
As label boss at 2020 Vision Tiker spends his days at the forefront of the electronic music movement and by night crafts the finest disco,† house and techno grooves.
We’re out of breath just thinking about the event, but if that’s not enough for you we have a very special after party hosted by BELOW, Adam Shelton and Acid Monday’s.
