With under a week until the much anticipated second edition of this year's Louche and System Terrace Parties at Mint Warehouse we take a look at the four headliners and give you another reason (if you needed one) to grab your ticket and enjoy some of the best house and techno the city has to offer beneath the bank holiday sun (hopefully...).
Louche & System Terrace Party Part 1 – Sunday 5th May – Image: IGR::Photo
Heading up the bill is one of France's most celebrated exports and one third of the undisputed trio of the underground (Apollonia); Dyed Soundorom. An incredibly in demand DJ, this month alone will see Dyed take in gigs in Portugal, Lebanon, Greece, Switzerland, Sweden, Holland and Spain, and he'll be jetting off to Ibiza the day after his set in Leeds for the infamous Circoloco Opening at DC10, Ibiza. Be sure to check out Dyed's latest release, 1+1=1 [Cajual Records], ahead of this weekend's party and keep your ears peeled on the day – it' a shoe-in for a big response.
Next up is a Louche favourite, and recent guest on their debut Boiler Room appearance, Roman Flugel – and it is that exact recording that we turn to wet your appetite ahead of the German's appearance this weekend.
Finishing off the bill are analogue advocates and 'defenders of the vinyl' The Analogue Cops and Wolf Music's Medlar.
The Analogue Cops aka Marieu and Lucretio have released a string of deep and seriously raw releases on the likes of Tabernacle and of course their very own, Restoration Records. Sunday will see the dup bring their famed live set to Mint Warehouse's main room, in the mean time get a taste of their sounds on the video below.
Medlar's releases have been reserved exclusively for Brighton's Wolf Music label to date, and the label has flourished thanks to this loyalty. We have chosen his remix of Steffi's anthem Yours [WOLF 10002] here, make sure you check it out ahead of his warm up for Dyed on the Terrace this weekend.
1st release tickets sold out long ago and 2nd release have been flying out over the past the week. Advance tickets are strongly advised to guarantee entry.
