Pearson Sound‘s Acetate is back for its 7th birthday at one of Leeds’ best electronic music venues; Wire, bringing in four of the UK’s most acclaimed DJs to celebrate. What’s more, they’ve taken on a charity special, raising money for two vital local causes.
Hessle Audio cofounder Ben UFO joins Pearson Sound to headline, sure to impress with the versatility and range his infamous sets are known for. Then we’ve got Bristol/Berlin-based Shanti Celeste supporting. As one of the best DJs emerging from Bristol in the last few years and a familiar face in Wire club, she’s set to bring a new angle to the night with her fantastic recent ambient house track releases. Tribe Records’ Simon Scott completes the lineup, and with his experience of the music scene in Leeds, he will not disappoint.
Most importantly, the event is for charity. Resident Advisor will be giving 70% of the ticket booking fees to Music and Arts Production (MAP) and Leeds Food Bank, which is run by a charity called the Trussell Trust. Both charities are extremely important to the Leeds community. MAP helps young students who struggle in mainstream education access alternative ways of learning through music, art and creative media. Secondly, the Trussell Trust has over 20 years experience in providing food for people in crisis, running 400 food banks, and impressively providing 1,182,954 three day emergency food supplies to people in crisis in the UK. Wire Club is contributing to these causes, and the DJs of the night are playing to support this. All in all, there couldn’t be a better event to support this October.
