MISSION, HEATON COURT, LEEDS NORTH
FRICTION, YODA, RUSKO
Legendary Drum and Bass event organizers, Metropolis, are taking over one of Leeds premier clubs, Mission, on the 13th of February for one hell of a mash up of everything currently rocking the scene. With a line up including Drum and Bass legend, Friction, the amazing and unique DJ Yoda and relatively new but doubtlessly talented Dubstep star, Rusko. Three incredible acts together at this awesome venue will create a serious amount of bass abuse, and an atmosphere unrivalled by any other DnB brand in the UK.
Friction has been a big player in Drum and Bass for so many years now he’s been elevated to superstar status. With fans and fellow DJ’s support from all genres, this true legend’s ability to severely shake up a party is indisputable. Endless tours of clubs and festivals as well as a steady flow of highly regarded releases and remixes, put his name firmly on the DnB map, and leave no doubt that every appearance behind a pair of decks will leave clubbers short breathed and open mouthed.
Not just a mere DJ, Yoda sets out to thrill his crowd with a feast of beats from all areas of the music scene. From Hip Hop to Drum and Bass, with a bit of country thrown in for good measure, no one can accuse this insanely unique master of the decks of following the crowd. With sets filled with mind boggling audio-visual sets, touching on comedy, Yoda provides each gig he plays with a unique energy and show stopping ability to bend boundaries to their limit an truly stop clubbers in their tracks. With international support from every big name about, and fans from every corner of urban music, Yoda’s shows are seriously unmissable, and in a venue as intimate as this, are set to cause some immense stirs...
Only in his early twenties and already collaborating with the likes of Switch and Wiley, this northern Dubstep lover is making serious waves within his field. Putting a more energetic, electro vibe into the sometimes more serious land of Dubstep, he skips through tempo’s and merges the dark and light aspects of the scene to create a sound instantly recognizable as his own. Now branching out internationally the word is spreading on this massively talented young DJ/producer and an outstanding, high energy performance is guaranteed.
Metropolis have got the formula right again, picking some of the biggest stars in music today and placing them at one of the best venues in the North, this party is going to bump and break it’s way through every genre you can name, and leave a messy aftermath in its wake…
