Week 5 of Teknicolor at Mint Club Leeds, and they are in full swing! With every lineup selling out each week a Thursday night is one never to be missed. Lee Foss, Francesca Lombardo and wAFF caused a lot of excitement on the 3rd of October and they did not disappoint.
Francesca Lombardo kicked off the night with an outstanding set! The London based DJ warmed up the night with her balanced blend of house and techno selections. With an extended set of around 3 hours, Francesca never lost our focus with colourful and exciting mixing, and brought us on a journey deeper into the night bringing in heavier basslines and deeper tones throughout.
At 02:30am Lee Foss, co-owner of label Hot Creations and one quarter of Hot Natured, appeared behind the decks. His set had a whirlwind of tunes, bringing the crowd up and down, including Dennis Ferrer's Mind Ur Step (Ft. Janelle Kroll) following some of the deeper sounds similarly heard from Francesca. Letting DJ Zinc feat Ms Dynamite - Wile Out loose also bringing a big reaction! Towards the end of his set he began to pull all the stops out with a mix of Daft Punk’s Da Funk.
wAFF still only in his early 20’s has undeniable talent, and with his first ever EP being signed to the globally revered and respected label Hot Creations it is clear he has a lot to give! As ever his selections kept the crowd alive till the end, testament to his skills behind the ones and twos.
