Resonate Presents – The underground is spilling over
In 1977 a new scene was born. Legendary DJ, Frankie Knuckles, opened the Warehouse in Chicago for the first time and a new sound of electronic music was born, soon to become globally known as ‘House Music’.
It wasn’t long until house music found its way to the shores of the UK via the White Isle of Ibiza, the explosion of house in the UK saw legendary clubs like the Hacienda, Shoom and Bagleys filled to the rafters week in, week out, with those craving this new sound!
Fast forward 40 years and house music is still flourishing in the UK, with events like the Warehouse Project and Printworks leading the way. It’s now the turn of Leicester to enter the big time with a number of promoters working together to bring the biggest and freshest names in House music to the city.
The newest promoter to enter the frame is ‘Resonate Presents’ launching in October at the newly opened Dryden Street Social (formerly Streetlife). Dryden Street provides the ideal setting for likeminded people to gather and enjoy the freshest sounds in electronic music, housing an immense sound system in a dark and intimate warehouse style venue.
For the launch party on October 21st, Resonate are bringing two heavy-hitting international house DJs to showcase their talents, with a headline set from Abode and Elrow regular, Denney and support from Hot Creations Favourite, Jey Kurmis.
Denney’s undeniable talents as a DJ have lead him to play all over the world including the notorious DC10 in Ibiza for Jamie Jones’ Paradise and the infamous Elrow party at Amnesia. His style is unmistakable with a unique blend of house and techno with a distinct ability to create a special atmosphere. It’s set to be a memorable evening on opening night!
This is a truly exciting time for Leicester’s nightlife and house music scene. It’s time for people to realise how important nightlife is for the arts. Nightlife is a creative industry, it offers us the chance to experience new ideas in art, culture, fashion & music and it should not be overlooked.
