We’re back at the Leadmill on the 1 st March for our first event in the main room.
Not only that, but we’ve assembled quite an incredible line up. As well as this, we
are welcoming our good friends over at Sliced Bread down to throw a joint party
with us!


Fresh from his Radio 1 Essential Mix last month, Bontan has continuously
gathered attention for his slick production and DJ skills, Skills that has seen him
become one of the biggest ever selling acts in Beatport, also winning Best
Newcomer in the DJ awards this year. He is without a doubt taking over the
underground house scene.
He has caught the attention of BBC Radio 1’s key dance music gatekeeper Pete
Tong who would announce him as a Future Star off the back of releases on Hot
Creations, Elrow Music and Circus Records, as well as headlining shows across
the world such as Elrow Ibiza Rocks to Fabric in London. Based in the North
West of England, the much liked DJ/producer has grown from humble
beginnings as a resident DJ in 2011, honing his craft in the sweaty intimate
basements oh his hometown of Southport and growing through from the support
of Carl Cox, Yousef and Masters At Work.


The DJ turned producer has since gone on to win numerous accolades with his
studio exports with Josh Butlers ‘Got A feeling’ which was no.1 for 6 weeks
straight and is still the second highest record of all time on the platform. His first
release of this year ‘Call You Back’, another coming together with Josh Butler on
Origins Rcrds climbed to no.1 on Beatport, which was streamed over 500,000
times online. True to form, Bontan swiftly followed up with his debut on Hot
Creations, The First Time EP was premiered by Pete Tong and went on receive
over 300 radio plays worldwide and number 3 in the Beatport chart. The first
time became Hot Creations biggest selling record of the year, laying the
foundation for a defining year for the young artist.
