Society’s latest tour will feature top underground artists from the worlds of house and bass, and the aim is very much to reintroduce quality underground sounds from the vanguard to mid-week parties and student friendly shindigs.
Ministry of Sound has been a scene leading club brand and peerless party space for decades now. They know exactly what it takes to make a party the most memorable you can imagine, from the sound to the lights and lasers to the production, so you can expect all this and more at every one of these special student focussed Society events. As well as a healthy dose of fun and playfulness, there will be some seriously skilled selectors on show at some of the country’s finest venues, so the vibe will very much marry proper underground clubbing with the great sense of fun that is inherent in any student party.
This carefully considered tour takes in four special dates and kicks off in Sheffield at Code with none other than Ejeca & Maxxi Soundsystem. Wednesday 28th October its Reading and Sub89 who host sets from Toddla T and Hatcha, then Tuesday November 3rd is when Tokyo Huddersfield has the one and only Tough Love playing, before things wrap up on the 5th November in Southampton at leading warehouse space Engine Rooms with Toddla T and Zed Bias.
This really is a one of a kind tour that will mean you can experience all the history, greatness and attention to detail of a Ministry of Sound party, combined with a student atmosphere, right in your closest city, so do not sniff at the chance.
Friday 23rd October
Lineup – Ejeca & Maxxi Soundsystem
Code, 28 Eyre Street (Next door to Plug), Sheffield City Centre, S1 4QY
Code nightclub is the newest addition to Sheffield’s scene. Boasting Funktion One sound, immersive LED lighting and vertical smoke jets, it is sure to go off on Friday October 23rd when Ministry of Sound’s Society Tour rolls into town. Headlining will be Ejeca & Maxxi Soundsystem.
Eject is the Irish DJ and producer who shot to fame with some big house cuts, then evolved into a more melodic, epic sound that found favour with none other than Sasha and his Last Night on Earth label. Maxxi Soundsystem is another man who knows how to craft killer, bass heavy house cuts laden with his own sweet vocals on labels like Hypercolour, Ellum Audio and Black Butter.
Wednesday 28th October
Lineup – Toddla T & Hatcha
Sub89, 110-117 Friar Street, Reading, West Berkshire, RG1 1EP
Reading’s finest live music venue is the host of Ministry of Sound’s unique Society Tour on Wednesday 28th October when Toddla T & Hatcha line-up.
Toddler T is the former Radio 1 show host who is known for his mashed up style that takes influences from bass, dubstep, juke, house, techno and plenty more sounds in-between. He is a party starting DJ who really knows how to lay down compelling sets, and tonight he is joined by one of the originators of dubstep in Hatcha. Expect the pair to really put the Sub89 rig through its paces with lashings of booty shaking bass.
Tuesday 3rd November
Lineup – Tough Love
Tokyo Huddersfield, Old Court House, Queen St, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, HD1 2SP
Tuesday 3rd November will see Tokyo Huddersfield taken over by Ministry of Sound’s Society Tour, and a headline set will come from men of the moment, Tough Love.
Tough Love is the new school pairing of London producers Alex and Stef. Taking cues from r&b, fun 90s dance, and infectious garage, the pair has already made it big with two Top 40 tracks in ‘Pony’ & ‘So Freakin Tight’ which has now gone silver in the UK, so tonight expect plenty more of the same dance brilliance in a great setting.
Thursday 5th November
Lineup – Toddla T & Zed Bias
Engine Rooms, West Quay Road Industrial Estate, Southampton, SO15 1GZ
Ministry of Sound’s essential Society Tour warps up a great mini series of events with a big blow out at raw warehouse space Engine Room in Southampton on Thursday November 5th. Toddla T & Zed Bias headline and you can expect plenty of great production and on point sounds all night long.
Producer and Radio 1 DJ Toddla T is one of the UK’s most original talents and has a real magpie approach to sound that finds him playing and making everything from reggae and dancehall, to soul and RnB. Expect the unexpected from him tonight, whilst Zed Bias is a garage legend also known for his edgy crack house and slick bass heavy bombs. He has been in the game for years but is still as fresh as every with many essential cuts in his arsenal.
