tensile - 5th Install on Friday 9th February 2018
tensile's 5th install at Beaverworks will be bringing some amazing UK based talent to Leeds to welcome us into 2018.
A focus on quality music and talented artists has always been the premise of tensile and the 5th install goes a step beyond the norm and focuses on what feel's to be the more important aspects of techno culture...
This time round we're shelving the heavyweights to concentrate on the ever expanding network of talented and accomplishing DJ's and artists.
We are obviously looking forward to future events and booking the more established artists that continue to inspire us but we will also be searching for the less well established but equally talented Artists & DJ's to the forefront...after all, isn't that what its about?
We are proud to announce the following line up:
/ WAREHOUSE /
Sam Watson - Freerotation / Third Ear
Sam Watson has had a huge passion for all things Techno since the early nineties, playing at parties and clubs all over the UK including Birmingham's House of God, Uti in Edinburgh and Room 237 Bristol. He has hosted and been resident DJ at a number of nights in Aberystwyth in Wales, which have included guests such as Surgeon, Paul Damage, Andrew Weatherall, Billy Nasty and Si Begg to name a few. For the last nine years Sam has been a resident at Freerotation Festival and at Audiofarm Festival. His recent sets at Freerotation are legendary. Sam Watson’s signature sound is a rolling and twisting hard Techno set. More recently, he has been working on the slower, deeper side of Techno alongside his harder sets, with influences from Sandwell District, Marcel Dettmann, Mike Dehnert, Smear/Forward Strategy Group and Jerone Search. He uses four decks, three vinyl and one cd deck for playing his own material exclusive to his sets.
Aside from two releases in 2001 under the name Dr Watson, one on Complex Records (label formerly run by Regis and Female) and a remix on Steevio's Mindtours label, Sam has more recently released on Trust Recordings and 6ONE6.
With his upbringing in Snowdonia, Wales, where he is still based, with its deeply rooted free party scene, together with his early influences of the raw, industrial sound of Birmingham and Detroit, Sam has developed a unique style and flow to his sets.
SUAL first appeared on the airwaves of Leeds based KMAH radio – serving up a blend of techno, experimental, house & electro with a focus on newly released music. Guest mixes on his radio show have included techno/electronica luminaries such as Mark Broom, Patrik Skoog, Sen_na, & Tadeo to name but a few.
SUAL’s own music takes influence from a wide range of electronic music and pays homage to the past whilst keeping an eye firmly fixed on the future. SUAL’s music has been used in both cinematic & theatrical contexts of late and recently featured at the Cannes Film Festival in the critically acclaimed film STOLISMENOS.
We are very excited to hear that SUAL will be mixing up a set of both fresh and classic techno/electronica alongside his own productions for us here at the next installation of Tensile!

Time served operators with a combined record collection that would scare the shit out of the Detroit muscle people heading for the hills.
