BEAT BAR PRESENTS : DJ PREMIER
Beat Bar is a brand new intimate basement venue situated in the heart of Leeds, which is regarded by many as the UK's premier city for clubbing outside of the capital. The club boasts a mind blowing Funktion 1 sound system geared towards the most demanding of bass-intensive music. The ethos of Beat Bar is to showcase the finest in underground dance music from around the globe, through live performances and DJs. We aim to bring you the full spectrum of the underground, everything from Soul & Jazz all the way through to House & Techno and everything in between.
It is an absolute pleasure and a dream come true to welcome the incredible DJ PREMIER to Beat Bar.
As one half of Gang Starr and arguably the greatest Hip Hop producer of all time, Preemo, as he's also known, has created classics for the likes of Nas, Big L, Jay-Z, KRS One, Mos Def, Rakim, Biggie...I could go on and on! This man's production style epitomizes the New York sound that dominated Hip Hop in the 90's with his raw and rugged style that still influences artists to this very day.
Premier was born in Houston, Texas but it wasn't until his teenage years when he moved to Brooklyn, New York where he met Guru that his music career really began to take off. In 1989 Premier joined Guru's Gang Starr and later that year released their debut album 'No More Mr. Nice Guy'. A year later they were signed to Chrysalis Records and, as they say, the rest is history...
In 1994 Hip Hop had one of it's golden years and Premier had a huge hand to play in thatt, in addition to dropping another Gang Starr classic, Hard To Earn, his productions appeared on five-star, all-time classics by the likes of Nas (Illmatic), The Notorious B.I.G. (Ready To Die) and Jeru The Damaja (The Sun Rises In The East). Since the Premier has gone onto cement his place in Hip Hop history as THE greatest producer. He's joined by one of today's best beatmakers and DJs, Statik Selektah, who has worked with the likes of Mobb Deep, Q-Tip, MOP, Action Bronson, Mac Miller and countless others.
This is an extremely rare performance and if you have any interest in Hip Hop music in the slightest then this is one that you will not want to miss
