As impressive as it is sad.

Big Up Yourselves!

A big thanks to everyone who came out and raved all day at the Gonzo/Kaos stage at Saturdays Unity Day.

Even though the heavens opened late afternoon, it was a heart-warming to watch everyone rave in the rain until close!

Great sets by all the Dead Channel artists and everyone else that played - roll on next year.

Hopefully we'll have some photos for you soon.

Leeds Unity Day: August 16th

Saturday 16th of August is the date for one of the best local one day festivals in the country - Leeds Unity Day .

Staged on Woodhouse Moor in Hyde Park (locally known as just 'Hyde Park') this event is always rammed with quality music, stalls, events and a D.I.Y ethos that just makes you smile. The event always showcases the best of local Leeds talent, and it wouldn't be Unity Day without the mighty Iration Steppas.

August's Fodder

We've got a lovely bunch of coconuts...

First up is our man Kubex with the hugely-anticipated 'Circuit Cities' LP. A beautifully constructed tapestry of ethereal atmospheres, warm synths, elegant melodies, intricate beats and abstract electronics; I've embarassed myself on more than one occasion trying to describe it in words. Suffice to say that this is genuinely a masterpiece. Get it!

Next up is Ant Orange with 'Plastique' - 8 zesty tracks of smooth beats, warm bass, lush melodies and gnarly funky acid goodness.

Finally, we're proud to present 'Lo-Fi' by Dimomib, an epic of electronic dub-bience all the way from Athens, Greece. With his background in dub-techno and ambient electronica, Dimomib describes 'Lo-Fi' as 'the result of an experimental game with sounds'. Atmospheric and hypnotic - definitely one for Sunday.

This month's Deadmix is a junglist rave-off courtesy of the lovely DJ Pesk. With a record collection the size of a small village and tunes that make other jungle DJ's mutter "bastard" under their breath, Pesk serves up choice cuts and blends them with ease. Rude is the word - get your gunfingers out.

If you like what you hear, please help us out by inviting your friends to our myspace page and facebook group, and generally spreading the word.

Lastly, anyone wanting to get involved in the 'Lego' and 'One for the Ladies' projects - get on it ASAP!

Head on over to the SITE and garb all this month's releases for free.

Thanks for your time... Enjoy.
