MUSIC IS LOVE
We're pleased to welcome our friend Leigh Lerwill to play some records this month. Leigh was long running resident at the night Asylum, which brought Theo Parrish and Maurice Fulton to Leeds among others. He has played at Manchester’s Electric Chair and set up Leeds' most undiscovered session - Kaput - a real hotchpotch of musical indulgence which we all love. Leigh is sure to take full advantage of his Slop slot this month and give us a sublime musical tour. He's a devoted collector, selector and proper music lover and it’s a pleasure to have him involved. We can’t wait!
We’ll start playing from about 9pm on the night to set the vibrations and get everyone nicely warmed up. Everything went swell at our last Valentine’s Day party and it was great to see the floor so active early doors.
If you’re interested in coming on March 20, please let us know so we know how many of you to expect. We’ve limited capacity and we also like to leave enough room for dancing. We have a list on the door and you gotta send your names down in advance to confirm you're coming (and please let us know if you can't make it this time, ta). Donations on the night, like the £5 everyone gave on Valentine’s Day are greatly appreciated, the money goes into the charity that runs the arts centre (of which Hope House Gallery is a part of) and makes a massive difference to many children and young people.
The party on March 20 is Cosmic Slop's third official party and we are settling in nicely. It’s something of a ‘home grown’ session with Leigh and the Slop collective and we hope we can continue to build our cosmic community. It’s been great meeting a lot of you so far. Slop is not about hype, 'the scene' or booking DJs while they're doing the rounds, it's our aim to build a night where we all love to party (friends and family style, "music is love", etc). We’re looking at booking some great guests over the summer, so keep in touch.
Leigh is playing alongside the other DJs that played the Valentine’s Day party - Tom, Kazim, Horace and Mike. Many, many thanks to everyone who came down for that one, and of course Jon K for his musical selection. The atmosphere was special, and respect to all dancers who stuck around for Harold Melvin and Bootsy at the end. We hope you enjoyed the sound improvements after New Year’s Eve’s party and work continues on the room décor and further development of Slop’s hand crafted sound system. Any suggestions on party decorations, treats or anything related to the parties are always welcome (firstname.lastname@example.org).
See you on the floor.
