Soak presents FAC51 The Hacienda w/ Derrick Carter & DJ Sneak
FAC 51 The Hacienda & Soak continue their special Leeds events with a return to the venue where Soak originally started, The Warehouse on Easter Good Friday 10th April 2020 with Derrick Carter and DJ Sneak heading the bill this time around. Soak was first conceived as a house music based alternative to it's harder edged sibling Kaos (Soak Backwards) and featured Hacienda DJ's Mike Pickering and Greame Park as well as early gigs from Sasha and Frankie Knuckles. Following a string of dates at the Warehouse it was then moved to the Corn Exchange, a grade one listed building for larger special Events. Headlining Soak’s return to the Warehouse, Derrick Carter was born into the Chicago house scene and was instrumental in creating that sound. From early collaborations with Mark Farina and setting up the acclaimed Classic Recordings with Luke Solomun, Derrick's commitment to quality dance music throughout his career have marked him out as a true innovator. Joining Derrick is DJ Sneak, originally Puerto Rican but who came to Chicago in the mid-Eighties to find inspiration from the city’s underground house scene. Famous for his filtered disco grooves that came to influence Bassment Jaxx and Armand Van Helden, Sneak also enjoyed a worldwide hit with “You Cant Hide From Your Bud” and his tight jacking style has graced the finest events across the world ever since. Graeme Park joins the line up from FAC 51, meanwhile the Leeds contingent sees Back To Basics’ Ralph Lawson added to the bill. Ralph honed his craft weekly at Basics, playing with world class DJs such as Daft Punk, Danny Tenaglia, DJ Harvey amongst countless others before becoming a world famous artist across the world’s best clubs and as a much admired producer with his own 2020 Recordings imprint. Soak's original resident and mainstay Marshall completes the main room roster of talent whilst The Loft sees UpYerRonson’s Paul Murray, Neil Metzner and Soak’s Miss Melodie complement the event. This is now the fifth of a special series of Soak Presents Hacienda events. Demand for tickets for all previous show's have been high and with the return to The Warehouse, this event is expected to sell out well in advance.
