‘45:33 Part Two’ – LCD Soundsystem

“It was so hard picking just one LCD track but I play this one all the time in The Elbow Room and Oporto. It has an amazing piano loop and the guest vocals from Reggie Watts are just to special – love this…

‘Breathe’ – Sean Paul ft Blu Cantrell

“Seeing as it samples the music on ‘What’s The Difference’, it’s cool to play this afterwards for people to really dance to. Always a floor-filler! Also it’s probably one of…

Pick'N'Mix Si Hunter & Ryan John Wallace, Carpe Diem

Every month the top local DJs give us their top five tunes

Si Hunter and Ryan John Wallace are resident DJs at It Might Be Vinyl every Friday at Carpe Diem. The club plays a varied mix of rock, hip-hop, punk, Motown and more.

Hard Work’ – Smoove and Turrel (Jalapeno)

“This groove-drenched homage to Motown/Atlantic has slowly gained acceptance over the summer and, if Smoove and Turrell keep momentum over the winter period, will become a festival classic for 2012. Production heads will also notice a definite nod to the work of Fatboy Slim. A confirmed dancefloor hit!”

‘Girl, You Have No Faith In Medicine’ – The White Stripes (ThirdMan)

Interview Chris, Empire Bar & Club, Leeds

We catch up with one of the directors of the new Leeds venue and bar

Empire is a rather epic name for a bar – how did the name come about?

We had an online competition and had lots of good ideas. We liked Empire because it harks back to the Empire music halls of the early 20th century that all major cities used to have.

What kind of punters do you attract?

Live music lovers! Whether that’s indie, alternative, metal, northern soul or acoustic fans, it depends on the night. In the ground floor bar we attract people who know there’s more to life than crap beer. We’re getting a good after work following especially on…

‘Pressure Drop ‘72’ – Toots and the Maytals (Trojan)
“Toots Hibbert has one the best voices of all time in all genres, not just reggae - it always raises a smile when I hear him doing his thing. This is a re-recording of the classic track done in the early 70s (hence the…

Preview No Bones at A Nation of Shopkeepers

A night of indie, rock, electro, hip-hop and plenty more at this hip city centre bar every Saturday

It was Napoleon who coined the phrase ‘a nation of shopkeepers’, which he used as an early 19th century cuss against the English people, suggesting that we were a nation unfit for war. Come on Boney, is that the best you could do? I’ve been more offended by Andrex puppies. Nevertheless, these words were provocation enough to whip our boys into frenzy and the British Army defeated Napoleon, who is now only known in these isles for a chain of casinos. [Poke with a stick from editor], So yes, back to the bar preview – which this is, incidentally –…
