This month we have a very special Nest, we bring one a true legend of House music, and one of the world’s leading purveyors of turntablism: Terrence Parker. It’s not uncommon for Tp to showcase his unbelievable scratching and mixing skills to crowds of 100,000 plus, however we bring him to Leeds for the first time ever to play to one of his most intimate gigs to date.
A Lucky 400 people will get to see TP showcase his unbelievable talent, just yards away in the perfectly intimate confines of a Brand new Secret loactation, underneath the city! We can't wait to get down into this dark, gritty basement venue which has yet to be used and is bang in the centre of Leeds with a function one soundsystem which we believe to be the best in the city!

It is a true honour to bring arguably one of world’s best turntablist and leading legend in house music, Terrence Parker to Leeds. As a DJ, Terrence Parker has become legendary for his quite uncommon yet skilful turntablism style of playing House Music. His unique sets cleverly infuse scratching and turntablaism into a genre which has yet to ever see anything quite as similair. If you haven’t Terence’s iconic skills then you may recognise his notorious telephone headphones.
Detroit has been credited as one of the Soul Music capitals of the world, spawning legendary artists like The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye and Diana Ross just to name a few. In the mid 1980s, Detroit's Underground Music Movement has brought rise to artists such as Derrick May, Juan Atkins, Carl Craig, Kevin Saunderson. But unlike the aforesaid names, Terrence Parker has established himself as a producer, remixer and DJ of the classic sound of House Music, and is known as a pioneer of the Inspirational / Gospel House movement.
You could almost run out of superlatives when describing this man, Terrence Parker has performed as a DJ in more than 100 cities throughout the world. His work has been deemed as a valuable contribution to the global history of dance music and has been featured in books and nearly every magazine & radio show going. Since 1988, he has released more than 100 recordings, and had top 20 hits with his songs “Love’s Got Me High”, “The Question” and albums like “Detroit After Dark” in the U.K. He has performed hundreds of festivals, including Detroit Music Festival where he played a now legendary DJ set on 4 turntables with 2 live vocalists for a crowd of over 100,000 people.
However he won’t be playing to 100,00 people this time around. You will be very fortunate to see one of the worlds best, up front and personal. If you don’t believe the excessive hyperbole, just watch a man in action and see what you might miss out on.

As if night needed any more added to it we’ve captured the talents of a very exiting act Zoo Look; Zoo Look are a production dup from Bournemouth UK which undoubtedly pack a punch not only behind the decks but inside the studio.
With the guys having a great year in 2011 dropping their midas touch on imprints such as Tenth Circle, Kolour Ltd, Sccucci Manucci and more its clear to see after their first year together in the studio the prospects for the youngsters are endless.
2012 has seen regular gigs at Corsica studios at DJ Mags Best of British night..Trouble Vision and with future releases scheduled on Morris Audio as well as our own imprint Albion Records, and with Medlar and Detroit Swindle both Remixing their work this year its no doubt the future has just begun for Zoo Look.
