》Shortly after exploding into the Drum & Bass scene nearly 5 years ago with his innovative sounds, we invited the exceptionally talented producer / DJ Joe Ford down to Leeds for his debut Central Beatz session. Sure enough we were all suitably blown away with the level of energy & skill he brought to his set.
Fast forward to 2017 and Joe continues to raise the bar with numerous productions on the widely respected Shogun Audio imprint, all whilst holding down an enviable global tour schedule supporting then likes of Noisia and collaborating with such luminaries as Icicle and vocalist Tasha Baxter.
Hailing from just up the road in Harrogate, Joe leads a new wave of producers currently taking the scene by storm, setting himself apart with an already outrageously accomplished studio skill set and trademark hi-tech drum & bass sound tinged with rock, funk and everything in between.
It's with great pleasure that we welcome Joe back down to Central Beatz for an intimate session down at Wire. This kicks off the new DNB season in Leeds for 2018, and is our second instalment of the 15 Yearz of Beatz celebrations!
》Revaux [Vision State / Flexout Audio / Lifestyle Music UK]
Having swept into Leeds a couple of years ago with their bar raising productions, and creating club night Vision State with its cult like following, we're stoked to have these guys on board. Continuously pushing boundaries within DNB these talented brothers have created a beacon of positive musical influence within Leeds and beyond. We know you'll love what they'll unleash in the dance at Wire!
》Tephra & Arkoze [Dispatch Recordings / Proximity Recordings]
Kicking off 2018 with serious weight this production duo have an excellent new EP dropping on Dispatch shortly. Known for their original direction in the studio with their signature sound of tight drums & rolling basslines, we're keen to hear what else will be played by them during their set.
