No Rest for the wicked as we bring to you our next party , which promises to be another absolute belter. Firstly Thanks for everyone who came down to the joint affair with the legendary Back to Basics. The near sell out night was one of the busiest we’ve ever had, and we expect plenty of the same this month.
Next up we go back to what makes Nest special, a night of fun and frolics in a Secret Location which as always, we will reveal closer to the time.
This month we’ve got two of the biggest duo’s around at the moment, both playing in the city for the very first time!
We are proud to announce:
Fresh back from a very successful summer which sees the pair having played Milan’s Timewarp, The Legendary DC10 & Various Life & Death Showcase’s around the world. This time around we’re looking forward to bringing the hot duo to a more intimate, gritty secret location.
The pair are of course most notoriously known for their highly received ‘different morals’ with Ali Love, on the hugely acclaimed Southern Fried Records. This track was played globally in all the hot spots from DC10 to Watergate and beyond. Francesco Leali & Federico Maccherone, aka Clockwork have blown up over the last year with releases on some of the biggest labels around.The pair have had numerous releases on Life & Death working alongside Tale of Us & Le Loup Remixing dOP’s ‘After Party’. With releases also on Hot Creations: ‘It’s You Again’ and support on the remixes from Art Department, Robert James & Lee Foss, it’s easy to see why they are gaining such notoriety on the underground circuit.
It’s not often that these boys play in such intimate gigs and we can guarantee that you won’t catch them in a venue like this for a long, long time.
WAIFS & STRAYS
Waifs & Strays aka; Amos Nelson and Rich Beanland, are a duo born out of diverse musical backgrounds but brought together by a sheer love of house music.
Their debut track – 2010’s late night ‘3am’ – was rapidly snapped up for our good friend Matt Tolfrey on his Leftroom imprint, and set the benchmark high for future success. Featuring in DJ Mag’s essential releases, it picked up props from major players including DJ T, Anja Schneider, dOP, Danny Tenaglia and Laurent Garnier.
The follow-up record ‘Yeah Yeah’, gathered significant international support following its debut at last year’s Detroit Music Conference, and has been ubiquitous on dance floors ever since. With Heidi calling it ‘the dirtiest house track I have heard in a very long time’ and featuring it on her Radio1 show, it’s not hard to see why it has already been named as the must-have releases of 2011.
It was not long before some of the biggest names in the industry saw the potential in these guys. This year sees tracks and remixes on the likes of Get Physical, Hot Creations, Leftroom and Futureboogie.
With exclusive cuts for the ‘Five Years Of Leftroom’, Heidi’s hotly-anticipated ‘Jackathon’ compilations and a residency at Bristol’s super-hot after-ours The Breakfast Club, it’s time to take notice of these two. With such a big year coming up for the dynamic duo we’re happy to offer them their first ever visit to Leeds, I’m sure you’ll make them more than welcome.
