Square One 1st Birthday - Night Slugs #27
From square one (excuse the pun) this Leeds based underground club night, founded by local house veteran Jo Kira has persisted to introduce pristine and innovative line ups to the city, therefore it is not a surprise that its first birthday celebration will be no exception, with nothing more fitting than a Night Slugs takeover.
More fitting…why? Possibly because ‘Square One’ was purposefully named after the primary release on the Night Slugs label?
In reference to this release the labels chief, Bok Bok stated in an interview with XLR8R that it “pretty much nails down this whole crossover; a house track swallowed up by the UK soundsystem portal.” which also translates to the ethos of the club night, and the intentions of its originator Jo Kira.
Night Slugs, both as a label and brand has gone from strength to strength since it was formed in 2009 by the don that is Bok Bok and his equally talented associate L Vis 1990; releasing EPs which could easily be considered the cream of the crop of the current House, UK Funky, Dubstep and Grime scene with artwork designs (by Bok Bok) to coincide.
After his stunning appearance at the first ever ‘Square One’ almost a year ago and having since debuting his own release on the the label the ‘Southside EP’ along with many other projects, Bok Bok will be returning to bless the dance floor with another mind-blowing, grime influenced selection.
In a further attempt to showcase the Night Slugs musical spectrum, another two of their key players will also be in attendance. Jam City has taken the underground scene by storm since his debut ‘Magic Drops’ EP and with his album ‘Classical Curves’ due for release this year what a great opportunity to catch him in action.
Girl Unit… wuuuuut. Yes, that’s right, the badman that brought us what is often referred to as the label’s signature tune ‘Wut’ will be smashing up the dance with his eclectic collection of exclusive dub plates and absolute bangers. Jam City and Girl Unit share different styles of both production and deejaying, whilst always in keeping with the Night Slugs originality.
Not forgetting the ever-fresh selection from the ‘Queen Bee’ herself Jo Kira to round off the baddest roster of deejays to touch Leeds in the near future.
Needless to point out, but in true British fashion, this will be an immense start to the Bank Holiday weekend and in such an intimate venue as the Wire night club, this is definitely one not to miss!
