The first gig is on 26th January, and will see City Dukes and Alex Tracey supporting The Blue Wave Pavillion. Originally from Warrington but now based in […]

Influences: Kornél Kovács

Kornel Kovacs is one of those characters who has modestly and organically asserted his influence on the European house scene. As one of the co-founders of the Studio Barnhus label with Alex Bowman, he has aired releases by Baba Stiltz, Jimi Tenor, Mount Liberation Unlimited, HNNY and many more. It also serves as a home for his […]

PBR Streetgang’s Top 5 Late Night Jams

As a Leeds based club, we absolutely love PBR Streetgang. For years, we have been proud to say that they are one of our finest exports – and definitely one of the biggest. Name an international club, and Bonar and Tom have almost definitely played there. They’ve even played in an igloo. But they still […]

Introducing: Heretic

The final Sunday Joint x Leeds College of Music collaboration of 2017 features Heretic, who is actually making his second appearance when he joins Regime in our basement for a special festive free party. The hip-hop artist has just graduated from LCoM, but has stuck around in Leeds to bless us with his determined attitude […]

Q&A: Jamie Tiller (Music From Memory)

There are few greater feelings in the life of a record collector or DJ than uncovering a truly hidden gem, the sort of tracks that you shove in your mate’s face with pride, or alternatively keep concealed until the moment is right to unleash its latent power. For many people, this sensation is all-too infrequent; […]

Q&A: The Brass Funkeys

Ahead of their performance at The Sunday Joint this week, we spoke to bloody brilliant brass band the Brass Funkeys about life in the band, and being in such a niche genre.   What was your introduction to the New Orleans brass sound? Do you know much about its history? We love the New Orleans tradition and […]

In the bag: Will Lister

Ahead of his set at Loop next week, we spoke to a Balamii Radio regular, and a notoriously brilliant club DJ about the highlights of his record bag. He had an amazing summer of festival and radio appearances, even being featured on the Dimensions Festival DJ Directory, which spotlights the UK’s brightest young selectors. His second […]

Introducing: Loop

Having started their night at Leeds Uni, Loop have now moved down Woodhouse Lane and into the HiFi Club. Next week, they bring their first booking to the club: rising selector Will Lister, who had a fantastic summer of festival gigs and radio shows. We spoke to Ben, Michael, Caitlin and Zac about their new night, the […]

Introducing: Mamilah

You could argue all night about what you think the word “Mamilah” means – but there is no mistaking what this band is out to achieve. They are all about groove. They play the fourth event in the Sunday Joint’s collaboration with Leeds College of Music, in support of Tarzan Bros. We had a short chat with the […]

Q&A: Paper Tiger

Leeds homies Paper Tiger, possibly the city’s most accomplished hip-hop outift, are stopping off at HiFi on their tour of the UK this week. In a city that was once a real hotbed for hip-hop sounds, they are one of the few flag bearers of the genre – and, as their last album Blast Off […]
