After almost a year's hiatus, Modulate returns to a Friday evening at Wire to bring you the freshest emerging sounds and artists in electronic music. Having introduced Leeds to people such as Machinedrum, Jacques Greene, DJ Rashad, xxxy, Pariah and George Fitzgerald - its shaping up to be the most special one yet…
MACHINEDRUM - Berlin [Luckyme, Planet Mu]
One half of Sepalcure, Machinedrum, will be coming back after tearing the roof off Wire at the last Modulate last March. Originally from New York and now residing in Berlin, Machinedrum's past year has been monumental - releasing a string of EP's and most notably dropping his incredible album 'Rooms' on Planet Mu. Its a pleasure to bring him back to Leeds.
SINJIN HAWKE - Barcelona [Pelican Fly]
Canadian born Sinjin Hawke joins Modulate for his first UK show. His debut EP 'The Lights' fuses his own brand of RNB spliced dance music that is unmistakable, setting 2012 to be Sinjin's breakout year. Make sure you catch this special one-off appearance.
ELIPHINO - London [Brownswood, Somethinksounds]
Fellow ex-Leeds resident, Eliphino, has been making some big waves in recent months, from releasing on Gilles Peterson's Brownswood compilation, to releasing 2 EP's courtesy of Somethinksounds. It didn't take long for his 'More Than Me' EP to sell out, you'll be hard pushed to find a DJ who doesn't have this one in his bag.
BEHLING & SIMPSON - Bristol [Future Boogie, Apple Pips]
Bristol-based duo Behling & Simpson are quickly becoming two of the most talked about newcomers in house music, having already remixed the likes of Juilo Bashmore and Crazy P, signing to Appleblim's Apple Pips label, and dropping one of the smoothest slow house jams of the year with their re-edit of Faith Evans.
As usual support comes from LOUIS SAVILLE and Infrasonics' own JAMIE GRIND...
