Following the very sad recent news that The Garage Leeds has been forced to shut it's doors for good (read more here) Leeds based promoters Set One Twenty are one of the many brands in the city (along with the likes of Back to Basics, Nest, Beatstreet and more) that are now faced with the task of rehoming themselves.
As well as Leeds' bludgeoning weekend underground scene, club nights including Teknciolor, Bigger Than Barry and of course Set One Twenty have developed an incredible mid week party scene in the city. Following The Garage's closure however, next Wednesday (27th November) will see the Set One Twenty gang bowe out of their midweek party session with one last Wednesday foray – this time at The Faversham – before moving things to the weekend in the near future.
A special lineup has been curated for the midweek departure with two Leeds debuts among the headliners. With releases on the likes of OFF Recordings, ALIVE Recordings and more as well as their recent nomination from DJ Mag for Best Breakthrough DJ, Leftwing & Kody are the first of two Leeds debuts on the nights – bringing their low slung, garage infused, jacking house to the party. Everybody's favourite disco alliance, Horse Meat Disco, are next up on the bill. From hosting their infamous weekly HMD parties in London (take our word for this, these are a real experience) to bringing disco to the masses through the likes of Channel 4's House Party , the Horse Meat Disco crew know more about disco than Brian Cox does about science – not a set to be missed.
Finishing off the main room headliners is the second Leeds debutant of the night and Amadeus and Manucci's Mistress signee, Cassio Kohl (full lineup below).
As ever an advance sell out is expected and with Early Bird Tickets already sold out we'd advise grabbing your ticket soon for the final midweek Set One Twenty ever!
