Back to Basics
Award-winning US house DJ Erick Morillo has announced his first UK tour in more than 10 years, taking in seven of the nation's top venues from 18th to 27th November.
Hitting up the likes of Egg LDN, Dublin's Button Factory and South in Manchester, Morillo will build up to a double whammy of a grand finale — firstly playing the Back to Basics 25th anniversary show at brand founder Dave Beer's new club, Church, in Leeds, before heading north of the border for a free Colours party at SWG3 in Glasgow.
Leeds clubbers will have a new place to worship as of 30th September, with the launch of new venue, Church.
As we reported back in July's issue of DJ Mag, Church is new project of Back To Basics founder, Dave Beer, former New Order bassist and Factory Records and Haçienda owner, Peter Hook, and Aaron Mellor, the brains behind Digital Newcastle.
If you're not in London this weekend, (if you are you should be attending our DJ Mag Sessions party at EGG with Fred P and Delano Smith!), be sure to get yourself to legendary club night, Back To Basics.
The famed party collective is throwing an all-night-long Playboy-themed party at a secret location in Leeds on Saturday, featuring an X-rated cabaret, male and female pole dancing, plus a show from the "World famous", Mad Alan.
