Trikk, Jonny Sleight, Kahwe - 06/02/12
We are extremely proud to present a Leeds debut for our next headliner, Trikk.
Despite having a sound that is becoming ever more distinct he is still managing to defy genre stereotypes, moving effortlessly between house, techno, garage and bass music. Since being picked up by George FitzGeralds' Manmakemusic label, tastemakers have taken notice. He's thrilled partygoers at the likes of Dimensions, Eastern Electrics and Church - dropping his wild brand of dance music alongside Pariah, George FitzGerald, Blawan and the rest of the frontrunners of electronic music.
Leeds based Jonny Sleight is one of our favourite residents amongst the abundance of talent around our adopted home city. As one of the founders of underground house, disco and techno connoisseurs - Butter Side Up - Jonny has introduced some of the finest selectors to the scene for well over two years now. As one of their resident DJs, with his diverse and on point record bag, he has proven time and again he deserves to be up there side-by-side with the artists that take centre stage.
On top of this, we are delighted to welcome back Kahwe who performed expertly at our launch. The youngster, Joe Cowie, is a part of the ever-growing Transmission Collective, for whom recent productions have sparked interest from the likes of Laurent Garnier, Bondax and beyond.
We strive to continue to create an atmosphere where music is the focus and with a crisp, newly installed Funktion One System - we have no doubt Beat Bar will once again provide.
