It may seem like Set One Twenty have been throwing parties in Leeds for much longer than three years, however this is the milestone that the club brand will be celebrating on Saturday 17th October at their home, Mint Warehouse.
Since beginning their journey at The Garage in 2013, Set One Twenty have welcomed the likes of Delano Smith, Kyle Hall, Marquis Hawkes, Beesmunt Soundsystem, Omar S and Eats Everything, all of whom are hugely appraisable choices to say the least. Last year also marked a huge moment for the brand as they moved to Mint Club, which also saw them team up with System, arguably one of the highest quality parties for serious music lovers, to co-host the semi-annual bank holiday terrace parties at Mint Warehouse, where this third birthday celebration will take place.
Headlining their anniversary knees up will be Julio Bashmore, a star of the new school music scene who has fabricated a number of anthemic tracks, which have become some of the most regularly heard tunes at clubs all over the country. The 2012 hit Au Seve and his recent LP Knockin’ Boots have become pop sensations as well as being dance floor friendly, with the album having been given great reviews by all sorts of mainstream publications including NME and The Guardian.
Also joining Julio Bashmore will be Kornel Kovacs, a name many not be familiar with. As always this shouldn’t deter, as Set One Twenty have been massively on the ball with spotting unearthed talent to play at their parties. With releases this year on Numbers and Studio Barnhus Kornel is one to watch. As always the Set One Twenty residents will be on hand to bring things to a simmer before the headliners crank it up to boiling point.
With the birthday on the horizon, there have been a number of other announcements throughout the weeks leading up to the occasion. Not only have Set One Twenty announced their September launch with Nic Fanciulli and begun their live stream series, they have also recently launched their website that has already seen an interview with SOT favourite Isaac Tichauer.
