Those of you have been to Mint will know what it’s about, after the first major refurbishment since its inception 11 years ago, the Mint Club reopened its doors to the public in 2008. The ceiling lighting panel based on the Watergate Club in Berlin has been installed (it’s the largest of its kind in Europe) is a major attraction to people all over the UK. The thundering new Funktion1 sound system is a massive plus, which when hosting acts such as Maceo Plex and Danny Daze.
Firstly, there will be Maceo Plex who is one of the most popular, in-demand artists in the world right now, Maceo Plex he has stormed on to the scene and taken over. With his debut full length ‘Life Index’ completing his transformation. Tracks from the album like ‘Vibe Your Love’ and ‘Can’t Leave You’, ‘Under The Sheets’ , and huge remixes of Laura Jones ‘Love In Me’ and DJ.T’s ‘City Life’ show the strength and depth of his sexy, soulful production. Mind-blowing performances at Rebel Raves all over the world and a first time assault on the Resident Advisor Top 100 DJ list at number 5 have cemented him as something of a phenomenon. The imprint will feature ongoing collaborations with their second guest Danny Daze and they are hosting the first label showcase in the UK, as well as the Leeds debut of the man himself, the irrepressible Maceo Plex.

Secondly, they will be hosting Danny Daze and he Mint Club has referred to him on their Facebook as having made a similarly dramatic entrance onto the scene. “A studio nerd with a taste for techno, Daze is influenced by his Cuban culture, thus giving him the Latin influence heard in some of his music and DJ sets, which are deeply commanded by Detroit Techno and Italo Disco. His debut track ‘Your Everything’ was a massive hit at last year’s Miami Winter Music Conference, getting heavy airtime from key players like Seth Troxler and Jamie Jones. It was undoubtedly one of the biggest tracks of the summer and propelled Danny firmly onto the map riding the tidal wave of Hot Creations. We welcome back our boy Danny Daze who completes the line up for Teknicolor’s 100th Party.” Get The Curse Podcast: http://soundcloud.com/dannydaze/danny-daze-get-the-curse
