Duende #2 :Back:
DUENDE AT FEZ CLUB
THURSDAY 20TH FEBUARY
Following last term's sold-out party, Duende are back in the Bridge. In the meantime, we've seen Whities head honcho Tasker light up Leeds and we have been planning a series of exciting parties.
THIS TERM WE HAVE AN EXCITING LINE-UP, WITH SOME NEW FRIENDS, AND SOME OLD DUENDE FAVOURITES.
Purplehands (Motherchip Connexion).
Douglas - DJ (Duende).
Hattie Hammans (Playtime).
George Manley (Turf).
For those who don't know us, Duende is a party collective that started in Nottingham who now are now based in the thriving city of Leeds. Our aim is to showcase rising local talent alongside our favourite selectors from the UK and elsewhere. We create friendly, intimate party atmospheres with diverse and open-minded DJs providing the soundtrack.
THE EMPHASIS IS ON THE PARTY.
We are blessed to have Purplehands (Motherchip Connexion) headlining our show. He brings hard-hitting electro from a collection of records as deep, vast, and varied as any we have seen or heard. His selections are guaranteed to devastate the dancefloor.
Douglas - DJ is back. Aside from starting Duende, Douglas himself has solidified a presence on the Leeds circuit over the past few years, having played at most clubs in the city and supported the likes of Dr Rubinstein, Anthony Naples, Central, Pender Street Steppers, Will Lister, anu and more. Expect to see Douglas weave together bleepy house, UK bass, breakbeat, two step and electro with energy and purpose.
Hattie Hammans' set at Duende #1 was a real highlight. Her impeccable selections, full of chuggy electro, eclectic sounds and pure dancefloor energy. Hattie will be filling the floors and we, for one, cannot wait to see her again.
George Manley and OT:OT are also back. With keen ears for club sounds new and old, we are buzzed to see them keep the d-floor packed till close (again). Guaranteed to bring the booty wigglers.
With every Duende event, it is important that dancers respect our safer spaces policy. We have a zero tolerance approach to any form of discrimination at our parties, including (but not limited to) racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia and xenophobia. If you feel in anyway uncomfortable, please find a member of the Duende team (located on the door or by the stage) or a member of bar staff who will direct you accordingly.
All profits from our events are donated to our chosen charities. For this event, profits will be donated to the Nottingham Music Hub and Blue Smile, a Cambridge charity using art to help young people cope with mental health issues.
