Techno Night Chorus Returns To Leeds This Weekend
The variety of nights on offer in Leeds at the moment has been breathtaking since we've returned to clubbing. A newly found source of anxiety trying to pick between an array of unbelievable line-ups every weekend. Whilst you are guaranteed to go to a great event in Leeds every weekend, you are also in the same light guaranteed to miss out on so many.
We've heard lots about the ongoing work on Chorus, a series of techno parties in Leeds. focused on showcasing the UK's most exciting artists around. It was great to recently meet up with George Harper(Kaidun) who co-runs the night, from talking with him you could tell just how excited he is about everything going on in Leeds at the moment, and about the future of Chorus.
Chorus also run a mix series that has been a favourite of mine to tune into, some incredible mixes courtesy of selectors such as Eyerate, Iyesha and Luce. Chorus' first night went down at Wharf Chambers, with Yant and Stevie Cox leading a sonic procession that ran into the early hours. The night was received with open arms, leaving many wanting another. Look no further, it's happening this weekend:
Chorus 002 will welcome Manchester techno legends, Blasha & Allatt toWharf Chambers on the 25th of September. Blasha & Allatt are co-founders and residents at Meat Free, hailed as one of Manchester’s best techno nights and nominated for best UK club night in 2017. Over the last few years, they’ve established themselves as one of the most exciting, hard-hitting acts in the scene, with highlight sets at the likes of ADE, Fabric & Freerotation. With 3 hours to take us on a proper trip, we have no doubt their return to Leeds will be a special night indeed. Warming up for the evening is Chorus resident April. April curates his sets with a contrast of the old-school and the new, combining fast and funky grooves with gritty textures and uplifting melodies.
