Hard Times has been amongst the North’s most respected house music parties since the brands inception 22 years ago. This Easter Sunday Hard Times will be descending on Birmingham to team up with the to-be-24 year old house institution Wobble to bring one of their all time favourite guests The Spotlight, which is one of the many venues encapsulated in The Rainbow Venues ever reigning nightlife powerhouses.
Todd Terry has played for Hard Times in Leeds a number of times, most recently at Wetherby Racecourse when the brand hosted the VIP area at Mint Festival. The New Yorker will be jetting over to Birmingham on Sunday March 27th armed with his never-ending collection of house music weapons, which he has fine-tuned throughout a lifelong career in music.
Known for being one of the first wave of house music selectors hailing from Brooklyn, New York, Todd Terry has played on dance floors all over the globe and everyone from Frankie Knuckles to Zip has championed his music. The consistent groove founded in all of Tee’s production is what gives it an insatiable irresistibleness that preserves an exciting sound of house music that has stayed strong throughout the years.
A selection of Hard Times and Wobble residents will be on hand to support the main man, with Jason Shaw, Brotherton Wing, The Lovely Helen, Phil Gifford, Silong, Harrison Daniels and Matt Skinner turning out to play.
