Hessle Audio co-founder Ramadanman has launched a new, vinyl-only night in Leeds.
Called Acetate, the concept is simple – no CDs, no laptops. And given the shocking increase in clubs not built for vinyl, sometimes not even bothering with spare needles (or not bothering with vinyl decks at all), we think it’s an incredibly welcome idea.
Based at the city’s Wire club on Call Lane, the first Acetate, on October 5, will feature house and disco golden child Floating Points and Ramadanman himself, alongside his partner in Hessle Ben UFO. November 2’s session will feature sets from Swamp81 label boss and dubstep pioneer Loefah, Sub FM’s Elgato and Billy Blanks, and Ruf Dug, while December 7 sports Joy Orbison, Appleblim and a Ben UFO jungle set.
Wire sports a Funktion One soundsystem, and is open from 10pm ‘til late. Entry for Acetate is £6.
