On the 7th of June, Control Leeds will be playing host to a very special guest, none other than DJ Snoopadelic, aka Snoop Dogg. The American rapper is one of the most well known hip-hop artists in the world, having sold over 30 million albums worldwide. After his reincarnation as Snoop Lion in mid 2012, he is now following a newly announced love for dance music as he begins a DJ tour under the moniker DJ Snoopadelic.
In September 2012, Snoop Dogg as DJ Snoopadelic released his first compilation ‘Loose Joints’ after announcing that he had a taste for dance music and that he would now be DJing under the new pseudonym. The album is a collection of electronic music featuring the likes of Toddla T, Jokers of the Scene and French Fries and delivers what is a bringing together of Snoop’s favourite dance music tastes after a call for entries was announced on Facebook. Having previously collaborated with Major Lazer and Boys Noize, Snoop Dogg’s love for dance music and inauguration as DJ Snoopadelic comes through a steady progression into electronic sounds.
DJ Snoopadelic’s music will be met with Control Leeds’ incredib;e Funktion One sound system and dazzling state of the art lighting in what is already looking to be a sell out event. Support comes from Hucci, Control regulars DJ Stoxx, Dan Hills and the resident DJs from Gin & Juice.
DJ Snopadelic Tickets are on sale now and available from Ticket Arena.
