Hospitality at We Are Electric

City Spotlight: Leeds


Leeds has always been one of our favourite cities to host a Hospitality, we’ve made over 6 years of memories in the North’s vibrant city and we’re proud to keep coming back every year with even bigger takeovers than before! Throughout the past decade we’ve been lucky enough to play in some of England’s best venues and Leeds definitely looks after some of our favourites!

Nottingham’s party bringers Detonate are the perfect partner in crime to take Hospitality to Leeds with. They’re also responsible for getting the best in bass to Sheffield and Nottingham and have appeared at some of the biggest dance music festivals in the UK such as Mint festival.

The almighty Leeds O2 Academy has been the home to some incredible nights over the years! We had one of our fastest ever selling shows in 2011, the family force has always been strong within its walls.

Since 2015 we’ve added Canal Mills to our Leeds stop-offs, an 18th century creative and artistic space for art, fashion, food and electronic music events – the perfect place for a Hospitality showdown.

D+B in Leeds continues to stay strong with numerous other nights like ‘Jungle Jam’, ‘Overflow’ and ‘Central Beatz’ representing the 174BPM contingent. These three separate nights all come together for ‘License To Jungle’ at The Old Red Bus Station. Alongside holding some pretty memorable drum & bass parties Leeds is also home to some seriously talented artists including high flying duo Sigma and Dispatch Recordings label owner Ant TC1.

To Hospital Records, Leeds is so much more than a city – its a community rich in music culture and bubbling hub of creative minds that have contributed to the diverse and open armed exploration of drum & bass. For these reasons Leeds has become one of our favourite cities to visit, and we cannot wait to see you again in October!

Catch Hospital favourites Fred V & Grafix, Metrik, Maduk, Krakota and Ownglow alongside special guests Wilkinson and Calyx & Teebee on Friday 14th October at Canal Mills.

Top 5 Calyx & Teebee Tunes

Calyx & Teebee have stormed back onto the scene after a 5-year hiatus from the D+B scene. Their early collaborative forays date back to 2004 and their landmark debut album “The Anatomy LP” was released on their own imprint Momentum Music in 2007 and featured some much loved, awe-inspiring classics. However, it was not until this year that Calyx & Teebee made a welcomed return to the airwaves with their second album. Having signed exclusively to Ram Records, they have gone on to release three singles – “Elevate This Sound / Hurting”, “Pure Gold ft. Kemo” and “Scavenger / Stepping Stones” – before unveiling their highly anticipated follow up to “The Anatomy LP”, “All Or Nothing”.

We’re really feeling what Calyx & Teebee are doing at the moment and are looking forward to welcoming the duo to Hospitality Leeds on Friday 1st February 2013 where they are guaranteed to smash up Room One. In order to get an idea of what they’re all about we decided to give you our run down of our top 5 Calyx & Teebee tunes from across their career to get you in the mood:-
