Strapt launches with a bang and unites with The Mint Club / Leeds for a Trap and Bass Special. A showstopping line up delivers a unique party never seen before in Leeds. This monthly Friday event showcases the best Trap, Electro and Bass DJs in this ever evolving and new scene. Eletronic music is changing fast and this is a mouth watering event for all those who are musically ahead of the pack and want to turn it up.
Johannesburg born producer and DJ Sonar Cousin is without doubt one of the most important characters in the newly evolved UK Trap scene. His recent refix of 'Elliphant - Ciant Hear it' was met with critical acclaim. His signature live remixes and bass heavy sets are packed with drilled energy and heavy basslines that have earned him an excellent national reputation over the last 12 months. This A grade producer is the full package when it comes to live performances and is spearheading a new wave of producers pioneering this exciting sound.
When it comes to musical know how, Radio 1Xtra DJ Beatcleaver doesn't subscribe to anything but the most cutting edge sounds. It is with great pleasure that we introduce the Leeds debuet of a DJ truly showcasing musical innovation on a national level. In the last 6 months Beatcleaver has emerged as a major force in pushing forward the evolving trap, bass and edm scenes. Expect big things from a DJ at the very frontline of new music.
If you're not familiar with Leeds' Vital Techniques who last year launched their record label 'Second to None music' then theres a good chance you've been asleep. This duo of West Yorkshire producers fuse trap, dubstep, electro and dub to bring nothing but the livest sets and have an enviable and growing back catalogue of their own production to feature on the night.
We are lucky to announce that our new resident is Malaysian born / Leeds based Producer Kash Ramli. As a true advocate of progressive and future sound Kash Ramli has dizzying music knowledge and panache. His fused live sets showcase both his own production and some of the heaviest bangers on the scene. No imitations.
The Mint Clubs Funktion 1 sound system and lighting is widely regarded as the best audio and visual experience in the city. The club won best small club in the UK 2010. This is the Leeds debut of a trap and bass event and we are thrilled to be turning it up within this amazing environment.
