Preview: Slut Drop at Chunk

Pioneering experimental electronic music and providing a gender equal platform to all, Slut Drop is set to take over Chunk this March.

A lot can be said for Leeds’ music scene, and in particular that of those involved in the dance/electronic side of things. A lot of people love it, with the house, dubstep and techno nights becoming real favourites. The problem is that the same old songs, DJs and nights can get really boring after a while. And another thing that’s getting really boring? The lack of a significant or visible female presence within the electronic scene.

Thankfully, folk in Leeds aren’t happy to just sit back and let the same tunes keep on spinning and the same old DJs playing. Slut Drop is all about bringing the best in experimental, boundary-pushing electronic music while giving a platform for talented women to get involved, whether that’s behind the decks, on the flyers or sorting the lighting.

Since it’s about to hit its fourth party, it’s safe to say Leeds is has been more than receptive to the night and that will only improve once their partnership with DIY venue and events space Chunk on Meanwood Road kicks off.

That’s where you’ll find the next Slut Drop party on Saturday 14th March 2015 and with a quality line up too. Manchester’s Madam X heads up the night and as one of the leading lights of underground music it should be no surprise. Expect genres to be to be mixed up and messed around as Madam X creates the festival-like atmosphere Slut Drop is becoming renowned for.

Tacat is Slut Drop’s resident DJ and will once again be dropping a set that should blow your head and ears off, while the worldly sounds of Mina and DJ TeeTee should round off the night with a bang.

Local bands and Chunk’s own Esper Scout and Zozo will be responsible for kicking off Slut Drop number four, and those of you that have witnessed either before know it’ll be worth getting down early for.

Slut Drop is at Chunk at 9pm on Saturday 14th March 2015. Tickets are available now.
