            about Back to Basics

            After six hedonistic years throwing legendary parties at Stinkys Peephouse in Leeds, clubbing institution Back to Basics will move onto pastures new and take residency at its new home, The Warehouse, Leeds from 21st January 2012.

            For the first time ever, Basics will switch from weekly to fortnightly events, allowing the team behind the night more time crafting the best parties, the sharpest DJ l...ine-ups, and ultimately, dedicating more time to its world class Basics crowd.

            The move marks the beginning of a new era for Basics as it joins forces with one of the oldest venues in Leeds, and with Basics now holding the title as the longest running club night in the world, the partnership between promoter and venue is unquestionably a force to be reckoned with.

            As a venue, The Warehouse is simply untouchable which goes hand-in-hand with Basics which has paved the way for club culture since the early nineties. Basics guest DJs and infamous residents will be at home on the venues Funktion One sound system and state of the art DJ equipment, and clubbers will revel in the mind blowing lighting displays and colour laser shows. The Warehouse has some changes of its own planned in the New Year as its set to expand into the surrounding grounds to open a third room.

            The Warehouse is a prolific venue in the heart of Back to Basics pioneering promoter, Dave Beer, who as a clubber was a regular during the 1980s. It also holds a poignant memory for Dave as it was here where he and best mate, Ali Cooke, exchanged handshakes with DJ Ralph Lawson as they entered a pact to set up Back to Basics. Dave Beer commented: After the 20th birthday, it was so good and we couldnt do anymore there. Basics has moved home nearly every 5 years or so and I didnt want Basics to become complacent. So in true tradition, it felt right for the move. Basics has always been about being true to its integrity and not becoming stale. There were good times at Stinkys, but we felt we needed to up our game and keep this exciting perfect for 2012. Former Leeds venues also to have housed Back to Basics include its first ever home, The Music Factory, The Mint Club, and Rehab, and with each integral move, Basics has continued to stick to its original ideas. Our first 4 line up's are of the highest quality and will give you an insight into why we have made this move.

            For our re-opening party on January 21st we have invited a true legend in Lil' Louis who will join Gavin Herlihy and our residents. Following that, the mighty Rebel Rave roll into town with Damian Lazarus, Clive Henry and Russ Yallop on February 4th. Circoloco resident Matthias Tanzmann makes his long overdue return to Basics on the 18th February, before Kerri Chandler returns to Basics on the 3rd of March for the first time since our unforgettable 1000th party.

            With a massive 20 year history behind it and it now being 2012, the end of the world as we know it, the time is ideal for Basics to make its move. Always Two Steps Further Than Any Other Fucker, Basics is positioned once again to bring something new and exciting to the UK scene, and looks forward to welcoming you back to the dance floor.
