Subdub doesn’t need much bigging up, having such a reputation in Leeds, but this New Year’s Eve there is a treat in store for all you dancehall and dub lovers. There is no better way to see in the New Year than floating to the vibes of artists like Ranking Joe, Youngsta, Artificial Intelligence and Nucleas Roots.
In Room 1 get ready for the roots vibes! Ranking Joe (previously Little Joe), the veteran, a pioneer of the 70’s reggae dj scene – this guy knows how to please a crowd!
Manchester boys Nucleus Roots will continue to keep it alive with their shaking percussion and trembling bass. Other artists include General Lee and DanMan. The night will be fuelled as usual by the renowned Irration Steppas Sound System with these lads also making an appearance.
The raving Room 2 will be for those who aren’t lacking in energy. Rinse FM DJ Youngsta, a leader in the dustep world since day one, will be taking to the decks. Following this, heavyweight duo Artificial Intelligence (A.I), who have certainly secured their place in the world of drum and bass, will be ready to smash it. Also making an appearance will be Yorkshire based dnb/dupstep duo Northern Lights aka Steppa and Kitcha, and the legend that is The Bug aka Kevin Martin, ready with his individual style of dub, dancehall and jazzcore, with Grime artist Flowdan featuring in his set. All of this will be blasted to you through the Sweet Potato Sound System.
Room 3 will feature local Leeds DJs, including duo Vital Technique and Danny T & Tradesman. Your biggest problem will be deciding which room to hit up first. This night will be one not to miss; if you want to see in the New Year in high spirits with great music, look no further!
