Some of you may remember – or at least have the occasional flashback, your smoky hedonism punctured by half-recalled blasts of light and noise – a wee shindig in a warehouse one rain-soaked Sunday in June. This meeting of Sheffield’s finest musical minds brought about a party of such monumental proportions, of such far-reaching and soul-plucking magnitude and knees-up excellence, that even now no one’s entirely sure it quite happened. Were you there? At Faction? When Move D wouldn’t stop and Slam tore everything asunder?
Well, with six months of reflection and repair undertaken, Sheffield’s crews are back with a wintry womb-trembler that threatens the traditions of that most sacred holiday - the underwhelming New Year’s Eve. No, it seems that 2013 will be ushered in not by damp party poppers and a regretful snog with Lydia from accounts, but rather with the rumbling thud of house and techno’s finest exponents doing their level best to frighten the new year out the door. I know. We’re sorry.
With Jools Holland otherwise engaged we’ve put our minds to constructing a true spectacle of a lineup, a scintillating selection of 4/4 gods who’ll be bringing in 2013 not with a whimper, but with an ear-shredding bang.
