Back at it!

Following the fun we had with Tom Trago and Elias Mazian on the debut Homework tour earlier this year, I’m super excited to be unveiling the details of the sequel.

It’s only a couple of months away and I’m heading to some of my favourite underground venues in the country bringing some of my favourite new selectors with me.

We’re starting off in The Toon on 2 November with a session at Newcastle’s World Headquarters. They day after that (3 November) it’s Liverpool’s Buyers Club then the grand finale on the Saturday night (4 November) at Wire Club in Leeds.

Now let me introduce the line-up. I met Bambounou on the road and his knowledge and technical skill won me over instantly. We really hit it off and he’s got previous playing some of the greatest clubs in Europe so I’m confident he’ll bring the heat across these three shows. He works with Modeselektor’s 50Weapons imprint so, as you can imagine, his record crate goes deep. I can’t wait for you all to see why I’m so excited about his sets.

Then, for Liverpool and Leeds, I’ve roped in the minds behind one of my favourite underground labels in circulation – Banoffee Pies. When they play as a duo, Sandy and Ell are so clearly music fans first and foremost – leaving genre and pigeonholing to one side and playing stuff that oozes with quality. They manage to weave UKG, funky house, rattling jungle and everything in between into a prime recipe of gorgeous house and slamming techno.

We’ve also got the World Headquarters residents joining us on opening night. The idea of the Homework shows is to create intimate, high-energy parties where the music leads the way – deeper shades of house and techno and any records that we know will make the floor move.  I’ve no doubts that everyone on these line-ups can bring just that. I’ll try and bring my best too! Here’s a reminder of all the dates. See you down the front!
