Dress Theme: 1990’s!
Well the time has come, we’ve reached the ripe old age of two! Time fly’s when you’re having fun, and we can certainly vouch for that. It doesn’t seem two minutes since the inaugural nest which was hosted in grotty backroom at a warehouse in Barnsley. But we’ve come a long way in two years, we’ve thrown some amazing parties / after parties for days on end, in some of the best and worst places in Leeds. Musically we’ve focused on debuting new and fresh sounds throwing up more Leeds debuts than you can shake a very large stick at.
We welcome you to our biggest party to date, In true Nest form we are having one hell of a party, we’re offering up a three part birthday celebration spanning over 24 hours. Staying true to our musical ethos we’re offering up 4 debut headline acts who have never played in the city and a massive UK Debut from one of the leading house acts of all time.
Mood II Swing –
We are proud to announce we bring a UK Debut from US House legends MOOD II SWING, true purveyors of the early 90’s house sound.
As Mood II Swing, production duo Lem Springsteen and John Ciafone became one of the most in-demand remixers in the late '90s. There was a point in the early 90’s that these guys could do no wrong producing hit after hit after hit for the underground US Garage Scene.
The duo's production career began modestly, however. After a failed attempt at R&B, the two turned to house music. The duo gained credibility with early remixes of Ultra Nates "Free" for one of the biggest labels ever: Strictly Rhythm that struck gold. The song became a huge hit and soon Mood II Swing was remixing big-name producers like BT ("Remember") and King Britt ("The Reason") Then, as a testament to the duo's success, the New York-based Nervous label dug up some old, forgotten productions by the duo and released them as Mood II Swing's Nervous Tracks. But it is undoubtedly their track ‘Closer’ on King Street sound which gained them most notoriety, and has become one of the most infamous house tunes of all time.
We’ve had to pull some strings to get these guys out of Retirement after the duo parted company over 7 years ago. One half of the duo Lem Springsteen has agreed to a Exclusive 90’s House Set which will see him dig out all the old gems that made Mood II Swing so respected and undoubtedly a name in house music which will last forever. We’re super exited to be offering not only a Leeds Debut, but a UK Debut for you lucky people!
DJ Deep –
DJ Deep is what’s known as a DJ’s DJ. It’s a name we’ve been toying with for a long time now and we’re finally stepping up to the plate and delivering it to Leeds. It’s a name you may not be familiar with but it’s a guarantee it’s a name you will remember by the end of our Birthday celebration.
Dj Deep is a obsessive record collector ; He'll be drawing on 25 years of crippling vinyl addiction to play you 2 hours of Detroit and Chicago records you should have heard before but haven’t. He’s been handpicked support DJ of choice for the likes Carl Craig & Theo Parrish and a true legend in the House and Techno Scene.
He was a long standing Resident at the legendary Paris Rex Club & to top it off he run’s the label Deeply Rooted Which has legends such as Franck Roger, Kerri Chandler & Francois X All Releasing on one of the most respected labels around. The man literally has a vinyl collection to die for and we can’t wait to see what musical treats he throws up at Nest.
Jeremy Sylvester –
It’s a Honour bring you another massive legend, this time from the UK Garage scene. As if the bill needed any more umpfhh to it we’ve gone out of our way to bring Nice ‘N’ Ripe’s Jeremy Sylvester to Leeds for an exclusive and very rare set.
Jeremy Is one of the founder forefather of the Uk Garage scene and dominated the scene in its hay day during the late nineties. Jeremy Sylvester has been both the backbone and poster boy for the UK Garage scene and has continued to pump out tune after luscious tune and was signed to legendary house labels Nice n Ripe Records, Azuli Records and Roger Sanchez’s imprint Stealth Recordings.
