Mint Warehouse will be continuing their ravenous terrace party season with a very tasty looking blowout on August Bank Holiday Sunday, in preparation for Mint Festival on the 19th and 20th of September at Wetherby Racecourse.
Yes, many have been getting very excited over the news that Mint Festival has added a second day this year, with both days welcoming the likes of Zip, Ricardo Villalobos, Apollonia, Sven Väth, Luciano, Seth Troxler and so many more. August Bank Holiday means one thing for fans of the dance underground in Leeds and that is that it’s time to flock to Mint Warehouse for another one of their signature terrace parties. This year has been an extra special year for the fans of these quarterly parties as there have been plenty of top-drawer bookings of the ilk of Mr.G, Dyed Soundorom, Soul Capsule, Zip, tINI and Enzo Siragusa. Following suit, this terrace party has invited one of the most exciting female DJs and one of the most in demand names in techno, Nicole Moudaber.
Fans of hard-hitting sounds all over the city have been craning to see Moudaber in Leeds, with this being her first appearance here ever. Label boss of Mood Records and a regular DJ/producer for Carl Cox’s Music Is Revolution, Drumcode and every prominent techno festival around the world, Nicole’s reputation precedes her. Nicole Moudaber’s Mood Records was launched in 2013 and has featured the likes of Carlo Lio, Macromism, Joel Mull, Wade and Nicole herself, with the sound favouring heavy bass and drums.
Nicole will be heading up the bill, however she will be joined by a further 3 headline worthy DJs in their own right. The second to be taking to Mint Warehouse on August 30th will be Frank Lorber. Frank last appeared for System 4 years ago at Mint Club for the brands 3rd birthday party. After a performance that can only be described as show stopping, the cities population of house and techno heads are very excited about his return. House maestro Butch will also be joining them, a name who has taken to Leeds a few times, but has yet to abuse the sound system at Mint Warehouse. Butch’s break beat laden house and tech has inspired many a DJ worldwide, with his DJ sets always proving exciting and energetic.
Josh Butler will be the final name who completes this quartet of heavies, a name who has appeared at Mint Club a number of times this year, as he has become a favourite amongst the student population with his performances at Mint Club’s Thursday knees up Mint Sessions. These 4 names are all akin to destroying dance floors, and with a further 2 rooms of local talent, this terrace party will no doubt be another standout event at Mint Warehouse this year.
