Resident Advisor Page

Every man and his dog seems to have a Resident Advisor DJ Page these days, and if you can't beat them, then join 'em! DJ Charts and first person DJ bio attached ;-)

Ostgut Ton Party 28th Jan

In their opening party of 2011, Detatched team up with renowned German techno label Ostgut Ton. Launched in 2005 by the team behind the infamous Berghain club in Berlin, the label has quickly become synonymous with the uncompromising techno and experimental sounds associated with the club and stands now as one of the most influential house and techno labels over the past five years. For the first of their two collaborations with... the label this year, Detached welcome SHED (live) and MARCEL FENGLER to the Beaverworks warehouse.

KILL THE DISCO will be hosting Room 3 at this event, providing deep house and disco beats as an alternative to the techno assault in the main room. With Twaddle doing their thing in the basement and more quality sounds emanating from the bar, this event provides the perfect solution to wash away the January blues.

A limited number of early bird £10 Tickets are on sale now through: and are expected to sellout before xmas.

Full price tickets only £12 ___ Door £12 (nus) or £14

Doors open at 10pm and please note that this is a FRIDAY night and not the usual Detatched Saturday!

Happy New Year!

Not posted on here for a while so thought I would do a quick round up of our New Year celebrations.

First off, we had a wicked NYE spent at Distrikt, where Kill The Disco teamed up with This Way Up for a free party that ran through until around 5am. We all played our sets and then all went back to back for a free for all at the end; unfortunately by this point a combination of Jagermeister, Peroni and Champagne had got the better of me and I had to be escorted from the decks! Start as you mean to go on and all that! Midnight tune was none other than Kool & The Gang - a bit predictable perhaps but a sing-along always goes down well as the clock strikes twelve.

Wax:On with PBR Streetgang

I'm playing for Wax: On again this weekend, at The Mint Club in Leeds. Headlining are Asylum & We Love Sundays @ Space residents PBR Streetgang. Asylum has easily been the best night for music at The Mint Club over the last three years of working there, and I was close to shedding a tear when they announced there was to be no more at the end of last year. I don't think I need to say too much about We Love!

Distrikt Videos

Distrikt's 1st birthday was really good fun last weekend. Maurice Fulton was wicked, amazing music and he mixes old disco with live drums absolutely effortlessly - not a dropped beat or hi-hat clash all night! I took a couple of videos throughout the night when Me & Seb were playing and thought I would bang them on here. There is a link at the bottom to the pics Soonnight took also - some really good shots.

Absolutely buzzing about this coming Friday night in Leeds - one of the biggest lineups of the year for disco heads in the North.

First up is Distrikt's 1st Birthday party, which kicks off at 9pm. Distrikt is a wicked venue, hidden in the basement of a side street just round the corner from the Corn Exchange in Leeds. They host some wicked free parties and loads of good pre-parties for all the best nights in Leeds (Think Basics, Mono_Cult, Louche, Dirty Disco etc..) and this year alone has seen Mr C, Moodymanc, Tim Sheridan, Simon Baker, Ryan Elliott and loads more come down and play on the decks. It is their first Birthday this friday and disco legend Maurice Fulton is the main guest of honour. Me and Sebastian Budniak have been asked to provide warm up duties and we are incredibly looking forward to it!

As soon as this finishes we will head over to the Loft, where Throwback host Mark E for what promises to be another cracking party. Support comes from residents Death on The Balcony and the Last Waltz DJ's from Geordie Land. Friday can't come round soon enough!

Wax:On This Friday

I have managed to swing at set at Wax:On's weekly hoedown at the Mint Club in Leeds this coming Friday and I am immensely looking forward to it! Unfortunately Azari & III of Reckless Love fame have had to cancel at the last minute due to a double booking in Berlin but MagicBag Music production duo People Get Real still top the bill.

Wax:On has had a bit of a change of direction over the last few months and after making it's name in electro, nu-rave and more recently dubstep amongst other genres, they have decided to host a weekly friday night at The Mint Club dedicated to house, disco and techno as well as their monthly parties with Metropolis at the 4500 capacity Leeds University. The line-ups they have coming up over the new few weeks are very much up my street, and expect to see Ivan Smagghe, Optimo and Aeroplane amongst many others.

Here's the info for this week - if you are in the area pop down.

Wax:On continues this Friday for the third week of it's blinding new residency at The Mint Club. After Rory Philips and The Sonic Emporium absolutely tore the dance floor to pieces at the last party, this weekend we see Wax:On resident and MAGiCBAG production duo People Get Real joined by Kill The Disco's very own resident and promoter Adam Daniels. Expect nothing more than the finest house, techno and disco throughout. See you ...on the dance floor!
