We are very, very proud to be bringing DJ Spooky to Leeds! He will smash it as he always does.
DJ SPOOKY (Slew Dem) >>>
A longtime member of Slew Dem, last year saw him establish himself as a truly vibrant and popular grime producer. He released the massive 'Spartan' 12" on No Hats No Hoods, as well as ‘Murderer EP’ on the colourful new grime label Oil Gang (along with a track on the same label's ‘Quadrant EP’). Add to that the six EPs Spooky has released this year through his own Ghost House label (one of which – ‘A Bag Of Myths EP’ - will be available on white label 12" for free on the night), and you have one hyped-up man!

MARGER (Alien Muzik) >>>
Marger is about! The success of last year’s ‘Kushwave EP’ (featuring It’s A Grime Ting and My Thing) has raised him high amongst the crop of so-called ‘new wave of grime MCs’, followed by the recent free ‘Sneaky EP’. Expect a harsh vocal delivery and too much energy.

Having released 7 EPs as well as the acclaimed Workaholic and Grime To Five mixtapes, this year has seen him release the ‘Shutdown’ (with Merky Ace) and ‘Do It’ singles. He has vocalled many a Spooky production before and will be http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifready to shut down the dance!
