Muzik 2nd Birthday Review – Friday 6th October
What a night to remember. After what feels like such a long break, Muzik returned with an absolute killer night! Code warehouse was once again transformed into the Tech House haven of Yorkshire, pulling together 6 massive DJ’s at the height of their game!
The night started with the duo from Yorkshire – L&F Project. Dropping a short yet sweet set, this event got off to a massive start, and these lads are definitely ones to watch out for! Their new ‘Keep Dancin’’ EP is set to drop very soon, and the tracks are massive!
Jacky took over from the duo, and put on an incredible set. Dropping banger after banger…it was a close contest between his beard or the set being more impressive. When you hear a sample of ‘Modjo – Lady (Hear Me Tonight)’, you know you are in for a treat. His hour and a half set gave the Sheffield ravers an eclectic taste of all this Geordie lad has to offer, letting one particular space head complete his trip to another planet. The kid was NASA’d…
Towards the end of his set and with the appearance of Leftwing & Kody, Jacky dropped two massive tunes. One classic – ‘Stardust – Music Sounds Better With You’, and one new tune that combines the naughtiest acid house drop to date… ‘Marlene Shaw – Woman Of The Ghetto (Catz N Dogz Remix)’. This was one of the best sets I’ve seen this man do, and continued the crazy start to the night!
We had the chance to catch up with Leftwing & Kody at the start of the night, asking them about there previous times in Sheffield which could have potentially harmed there career as they played at…Plug. Muzik have offered counselling services to the duo to help them get over what must have been a tough time. But here they are, at the infamous Code, having had one of their “busiest” summers to date. Following a residency at Sankeys Ibiza for the summer, the pair were ready to take Sheffield by storm, and they definitely didn’t disappoint. They told us that they wanted to showcase their newest tracks, which went down an absolute treat. For me, their newest mix ‘Sound Boy’, literally blew my mind, and left me retrieving it from lost property. Damn, I swear my banter is as dead as a night at Plug…
Waze & Odyssey carried on the ‘cool sexy vibes’ of the night dropping some off the record tunes, giving you ‘Something For Your Mind’. There were massive drops throughout their set, and as we heading in to the latter part of the night, kept the hardcore ravers two stepping. One lad had travelled back to the 1990’s, sporting an ‘edgy’ bowl cut, which bobbed independently of this lads dancing. It was clear which part of Yorkshire he was from…
Huxley and Pawsa completed the final 3 hours of the night, with a set each. Having both just released some new music, Code was in for a massive finish to one of the best events to have graced Yorkshire this year. Huxley, cranked up the temperature with his newest track ‘Heat’, making sure that he got every tired raver refusing to dance to move their feet again…it was clear that he just wouldn’t ‘Tech-No’ for an answer!
Pawsa took us right up to the 6am finish line, smashing out his massive tracks, including his newly released ‘Party’. He recently tweeted ‘muzik Sheffield LN was unreal, thanks everybody for staying till the end ! x’
Massive respect for this DJ who literally helped create such an incredible night, and we’d love to have him back in Sheffield soon!
The countdown is already on for the next HUGE Muzik event, the see’s some insane DJ’s take Code by storm, including Boxia, Reset Robot, Enrico Sangiuliano and the legend that is Alan Fitzpatrick! This is one you really don’t want to miss, so stop being a ghost, and grab a ticket now!
It’s been rumoured that even Aristotle said “Muzik is not just an event, it’s a philosophy”…trust me, that really isn’t fake news….
There are limited tickets left for this Halloween event, Muzik won’t be ‘tricking’ and only ‘treating’ on the 27th October. Check out the event now, and remember the only excuse you need to get you off the hook from you partner, work or family is…’I’m sorry, but Muzik Made Me Do It’.
