Get ready to experience a seismic shift in the Leeds DNB scene as we unleash the electrifying beats of Colombian Drum & Bass maestro 'Brain' for his debut performance in February. Prepare for a sonic journey, as Brain, with his stand-out releases on Dispatch Recordings and Sofa Sound Bristol, drops music that seamlessly fuses classic DNB vibes with cutting-edge tech wizardry. Bogotá, the base of Brain's operation & DJ residencies, is known as a DNB hotspot of Latin America. With 2 to 3 weekly parties and a wave of producers crafting a distinct Colombian DnB culture, it sets itself apart, echoing more deeper & techier sounds, unlike neighbouring countries such as Brazil who are more focused on Liquidfunk or Jungle. It's a sonic scene like no other in the region that we'll be bringing down to the Old Red for one night! But that's not all - joining us we have top squad selectors Talisman & Xoneout from Bass Culture in Chester, Juvenile Jungle's Billy North with El Chappo, as well as Leoa & LD50 to ensure we've got the full spectrum of proper Drum & Bass and Jungle music locked in. Hosted throughout by residents Salem Focus & MC LD. Expect an inclusive atmosphere and weighty tunes over a thumping sound system until the early hours. FREE advance tickets are available however places are limited, make sure you bag one beforehand to secure entry for zero cost! Free tickets are valid until midnight. Entry is £5 after midnight. Doors open 23:00, 18+ only.
