Friends, family, foes, we are back for 2018 with a very special party for you all. We are welcoming one of our favourites in the game to join us in Wire…. Tornado Wallace! With five years passing since he last set foot on Leeds soil, we’re excited to see what he’ll bring from his travels.
— Tornado Wallace (Running Back / Beats in Space) — As the forerunner of the new wave of Melbourne dance producers to his current international schedule, Lewie Day AKA Tornado Wallace has always been bringing the heat with his seasoned blend of disco, italo and heavy house builders.
An equally revered producer, Lewie Day has an impressive catalogue of releases, from early work on respected New York labels ESP Institute and Beats in Space, famed for their low strung and sleazy basslines. Now based in Berlin, he’s recently turned heads with releases on Melbourne’s own Animals Dancing as well as his downtempo flute heavy album on Gerd Janson’s Running Back.
It’s safe to say we are more than excited to see what Tornado Wallace can do with full reigns of the Wire soundsystem. Join us for a stormy end to dry Jan, we’re pretty sure he’s going to blow the roof off…
