Over the past 12 months or so, Leeds' Canal Mills has carved out a reputation as one of the leading warehouse spaces in a city with no shortage of them.
Opening its account with a night headlined by SMD and curated by Wax:On, it was obvious that this untamed ex-industrial textile mill meant business from the beginning. Today over a year down the line the venue is only getting stronger, offering a stop for the bigger events of local leaders such as Mono_cult and in-demand live acts like Bonobo in recent months.
During December, there are two nights bound to excite Leeds' house/bass enthusiasts at the venue. Last weekend saw Dusky, Redlight, Ben Pearce and Shadow Child join Friend Within in room two, and Disclosure (DJ set), Karma Kid, TCTS and Mediate join Bigger Than Barry on New Year's Eve.
