    Hi there

    Im Roxy, a 26 year old Leeds-based promoter and music lover :)

    Great to discover this site.

    I organise a festival-style annual event which has a new room which focuses on Drum and Bass/Dubstep sounds. Any hints and tips for both recommended DJs to book and good places to promote the event would come in very handy. Info on the event below

    Yep indeed, still just navigating my way around the forum! So are you still based in Leeds?

    Pitts - yes that would have been a Raisetheroof night for sure! I think we had Steppa djing right at the end of the night. We haven't had him on for while which is a shame, might book him again next year though - in 2011, so perfect timing for you Scatcat!

    Are you serious?? That is my favorite shop in Leeds! The vegetarian selection! The asian sweets! the fresh samosas! You are a lucky person, I would be raiding that shop all of the time if that was my uncles.
