Headed down to the Wire again on Friday night this time for the Tectonic party put on by Room 237 and Exodus. The line up was huge with label owner Pinch, Kryptic Minds and 2562 on the buttons, along with Jack Sparrow and Exodus himself. I was expecting a straight up eyes down rave, but instead the night was pretty much 100% dancefloor business.

Kryptic Minds were first on the played a filthy set. After doing the interview with them a few weeks back, I was excited to see them and see what kind of set they would play. I knew it was going to be sick when the first tune (One Of Us VIP) gave me goosebumps. His skills and technique on the decks was impressive with incredible track selection. Rather than being straight eyes down business, the set was full of dark bass driven halfstep riddems with tunes like 'Badman' and Distance's remix of 'Tell Me' getting the crowd hype before 2562 took to the decks.

He played an incredible set with sick track selection. Some of the tunes were proper techno and wouldn't have been out of place on the Terrace in Cocoon @ Amnesia. If you haven't got his new album 'Unbalance' then make sure you grab it as this guy is definitely an absolute badboy producer.

Next up was Pinch and I was so hyped to see him as I hadn't seen him play out for a few months and I'm loving his production at the moment. His set was actually a f***ing JOOOOKE! Some of the tunes he was playing were absolutely massive. I don't know the names of them because he refused to give me any track id's, but big tunes that I knew the names of included Benga's 'Descending', Skream's 'Metal Mouth VIP', the RSD mix of 'Get Up' and some sick new Distance bits. The last track of his set was one of his own tunes, with some proper tribal drums, which apparently only him and Mala have at the minute! Dread MC was perfect MC perfectly balancing spitting bars and knowing when to let the music do the talking! He complemented the music perfectly rather than trying to steal the limelight (which is more than can be said for a lot of MCs in the scene).

Overall, in typical Exodus style it was a banging night with sick music and a good crowd. The Wire continues to be my favourite club in Leeds by far, so if you haven't been down already make sure you get down there soon!

Stay locked for more info regarding a collaboration between Disrupt:on Inc. and Wire nightclub, an upcoming feature on man like Dread MC and details of our night (Disrupt:on Inc. Presents Disrupt:on 001) which will be held at Wire due to start in February 2010.

Big up Wayne, Wire, Pinch, Exodus and Dread MC for their support.
