Another incredible year has flown by, with so many highlights and memories to look back on, everywhere from Leeds to London, from Ibiza to Croatia. Thanks to all your support, you are what makes Flux so special. Later this month we will find ourselves celebrating Flux's 2nd Birthday at our home venue, The Beaver Works. Showcasing a range of Flux friends old and new, we will be joined by Amsterdam dynamo Tom Trago and Dresden's eclectic innovator Jacob Korn, as well as welcoming back American man-of-the-moment, Perseus.
The new DJ Diner, podcast series and blog can now be found via our website:

Dutchman Tom Trago is a man of many influences. Once a student of jazz and contemporary music in his native Holland, he has since made his name as a leading member of the Rush Hour stable and a stalwart of legendary Amsterdam hotspot, Trouw. Like a modern day renaissance man, Trago refuses to be bound by the rules of just the one genre but mixes and matches all his influences into an infectious concoction of mesmerizing grooves. Or as he puts it; “In the end it’s just about you developing yourself and not keeping up with the pressure of maintaining some kind of sound. If it’s honest music, your signature will always be there.” You might call it a hybrid form of house and futuristic boogie but maybe it’s better to just define it as the Tom Trago sound. His 12” ‘Use Me Again’ became a 2012 summer anthem driving every dancefloor from New York to Amsterdam into a frenzy and we look forward to welcoming him for his first Flux.
Jacob Korn was born in Dresden in the 80's, and grow up against a musical backdrop of Kraftwerk and a diverse range of 90's house and techno. His early musical exploits, under the GranUfunk pseudonym, saw him play with eclectic blends of jazz, hip-hop and techno, with an experimental attitude to electronic sound. Once he turned his attention to more classical but versatile house and techno stylings he chose to go by his birth name. Jacob continually experiments in new recording styles and production techniques, while developing his own music tools for cross-media arts and interactive performances. After having slowly accumulated significant underground support for his fresh approach to music, Jacob's recent album You&Me on home label Uncanny Valley catapulted him to notoriety, gaining universal acclaim from pundits and party-goers, and featuring on a whole host of end of year Best Album lists. We are very excited to welcome Jacob and to watch his live set get the basement moving on his Leeds debut.
Leon Oziel, aka Perseus, started out as a tastemaker writing for one of the world’s biggest music blogs. After uncovering talents such as Azari & III and Disclosure he decided to have a go himself, setting us the French Express label from his base in Texas. Now his own music has received massive blogosphere acclaim, with tracks such as ‘Running Back to You’ and ‘Seychelles’ giving him a reputation all of his own. Perseus made the terrace his own at the Flux & RBMA terrace party last May, and has continued to go from strength to strength, recently joining the esteemed ranks of those invited to do an Essential Mix for Radio 1. It only seems right that we bring him back to Leeds for this milestone party.
