About

Easily the biggest event we've ever done. The ever sagacious Ross From Friends joins us for an exquisite night of equanimous dance music from a man who has pushed sound, production and serene music to the limits. On our inveterate quest to bring underground dance music to Durham, this feels like the icing on the cake. Collaborating with our good friends and North East powerhouses in Chain Reaction, a collective that have been making strides to push the North East's cultural significance. ROSS FROM FRIENDS // Ross From Friends, AKA British producer Felix Clary Weatherall, an artist who demonstrates an ever-increasing mastery of his craft, ‘Tread’ is a record that is at once sleek and melodic but also eminently danceable, nostalgic but brilliantly modern. NME praised Felix's unique sonic identity as “a mind-melting picture that takes in house, techno, jazz and ambient music, and ties it together to make something distinctly unique” and Rolling Stone declared him “a master of fun, gooey textures”. Similar praise came from the likes of Resident Advisor, The Wire, Pitchfork, AV Club, Loud & Quiet, DJ Mag, Clash, PopMatters, FADER and more. Ross From Friends has graced stages at the likes of Coachella, Glastonbury, Primavera, Lost Village, Green man and Sonar to name a few. 2022 witnessed multiple sold-out dates across previous tours throughout the UK, EU, Australia and North America. Felix really has made his sound international become a global superstar off the back of it. TAILOR JAE // Tailor Jae plays what she wants, and she’s earned it. A technical firehouse behind the decks, she brings her East London energy to her bass-heavy sets. Supporting DJs like Chase and Status and My Nu Leng in residencies at XOYO and KOKO, and shutting it down at The Jazz Café, she’s known for her genre-bending set lists and unexpected technicality. She mixes garage with jungle, and sprinkles some grime on top, harking back now and again to the beats of the 90s. In her own words, she’s genreless at heart, heavy on the bass. BEN PROPHET // A firm Durham favourite Ben Prophet makes his long anticipated return. Ben’s fine-tuned style has garnered global attention. With consistent support from revered tastemaker HAAi, she has lifted Ben Prophet’s career off the ground performing his records in clubs and festivals across the globe, including her Australian boiler room, as well as a release pending. Ben Prophet has seen continued support from heavyweight artists including Mall Grab, Skream, VTSS, & Kettama. His remixes and edits have been shelling clubs across the world, as his instantly recognisable sound merges gritty, piercing drums with mechanical sounding vocals and percussion to form a raucous blend of leftfield, electronic beats. When in control of the decks, unhinged basslines, shapeshifting synths and skillfully layered samples are a common theme in Ben’s high-energy sets which have left ravers around the UK and further afield burning holes in the dance floor.
