Thinking back it doesn’t feel like half a decade since we first dropped the needle at The Lounge one lazy Sunday afternoon. Five years on, we still have the same drive and ambition to provide underground music, to the music lovers.
On Saturday 10th March we return to the venue we share many memories with, The Faversham. The last 12 months have seen us bring the likes of Theo Parrish, The Revenge, Ben Westbeech, Julio Bashmore, John Daly, Floating Points, Soundstream, Tiger & Woods, Art Department to venues ranging from our spiritual home The Lounge to Warehouse parties in Holbeck, discovering the FullCircle space, and ending the year with a 12hr, 2000 person New Year jaunt.
To kick of the next milestone, Henrik Schwarz (Innervisions) drops in for a very rare and long overdue LIVE performance at mono_cult. Hard to believe it’s only taken us 5 years to book him. Henrik recently graced RA’s Top 5 Live Acts in the world, and along with good friends Ame and Dixon, has been responsible for shaping the mono_cult sound as it is today.
One of our favourite guests of 2011, Joy Orbison (Doldrums/Aus) returns with armfuls of acetate to deliver on his reputation as one of the biggest artists of the last 18 months. Axel Boman will make his mono_cult debut, rising to the forefront with the epic screw-house anthem ‘Purple Drank’ (Pampa Records), remixing Tricksi 'Good time to pray' (Suol), while dotting in occasional appearances at the RBMA.
3rd Strike Records’ Homepark bring the sound of London to Leeds with some eloquent deep house, ever present on their mono_cult podcast, while Hypercolour/Glasstable’s resident string-puller Ste Roberts, displays why both labels have dominated record boxes the world over. Last but not least the gimp room is hosted by Manchester’s party starters Limbo, headed up by Cecille and Get Physicals latest signing, H2.
Thank you for your support. It’s been emotional.
