Venue: Holbeck Underground Ballroom
67-71 Bath road, Leeds, LS11 9UA
Itâ€™s been an amazing first 12 months for FINA; weâ€™ve had some massive releases and remixâ€™s from the likes of Mic Newman, Move D, Leif, Roberto Rodriguez, Cottam and MAM.
So to show our thanks and appreciation, we are throwing a very special birthday knees up in our hometown of Leeds. Pencil Friday 27 April in your diary as we set up shop at raw warehouse space The Holbeck Underground Ballroom. We have decided the night is all about the love, not the money, and therfore decideed entry is completely FREE! All you have to do is drop an email requesting guest list for you +1 to email@example.com. There is a limited 400 capacity at this event and guest list is restricted to you +1, if your mates want to come they need to email us individually.
Making a rare Leeds performance will be headline act Cottam. The sub-aquatic housecat shot to notoriety in 2009 with three limited edition 12â€s that blew up the underground deep house and nu-disco scenes with no advertising and no info â€“ combining neo-soul, afro-beat and hip hop with slo-mo house grooves. All three sold out in double-quick time ending up gracing many a â€˜best of 2009â€™ chart. Since then requestâ€™s have come thick and fast, remixing our Morning Factory EP and releasing on labels such as Wolf Music, Aus Music and Delusions of Grandeur.
Co-headlining this event will be local boys done good, MAM. If you havenâ€™t heard of MAM over the last 12 months where have you been?! MAM have been behind some of the most influential underground disco tracks of the past two years, released a number one album through their Outcross Records imprint, signed to Wolf & Lambâ€™s â€˜Blackâ€™ with the huge â€˜Bedroom Dancerâ€™ and have constantly - and consistently - gained respect from peers as diverse as Jamie Jones to Annie Mac!
In support will be label bosses Simon Morell & Matt Long along with Hush House residents R.Cary & J.Were
