After their 15th successful season in Ibiza, the coveted ‘We Love...’ brand come to Leeds for a night that will most definitely stamp a musical imprint into your head. Their closing party at Space in Ibiza hosted some of dance music’s greatest innovators including Fat Boy Slim, Groove Armada and Simian Mobile Disco, so if you’re looking for even a fraction of what went down as one of the most outstanding closing parties of the season, then get yourself down to Control on the 25th October.
We Love come heavily armed with the likes of 2manydj’s, Cassius and Greg Wilson to be put into the firing line.
2manydj’s are two of the best dressed men on the scene and are uniquely genre-less. Their sets are notoriously fun and include everything from upbeat electro house to downbeat disco and even the odd classic rock anthem in between. These are two men primarily known for their ability on the ones and twos and backed up by their renowned visuals, we expect them, as always, to cause a carnage on the dance floor.
Next on the line up are a French duo that have, under their belt, one of most recognisable tunes on the planet - Cassius 1999. They began working together almost 25 years ago releasing music on Ed Banger, remixing for Daft Punk and even working with the legendary Wu-Tang Clan rapper, Ghostface Killah. Also known as La Funk Mob, the clue is in the name as to what you’re going to expect from an act that excited us from the second We Love released the line up!
Heading the Geodome room is Greg Wilson. He began to DJ at the tender age of 15 and was a resident for the one most famous clubs to have ever graced this country, the Haçienda. The man’s illustrious career took flight in 1983 as he became the first DJ to strut his stuff on British Television and he’s been going ever since!
It doesn’t stop there, The Revenge has been releasing tracks on Wolf Music, Get Physical and Phonica Records and his track, Just Be Good To Me is clear evidence of this boys ability. Haydn Porter, Slave To The Pleasure and Jacques T finish up another marvellous line up from We Love. The ethos of the night is eclectic genuine quality, 2manydjs, Cassius and Greg Wilson have been in the game for a combined 74 years - we can’t wait for this one!
