5 Years… Sotano & Upside Your Mind
Sat Sep 14 @ 2.00 pm - Sun Sep 15 @ 4.00 am
It’s been a great 5 years of weekends and music in the heart of York – I’m blessed to have been able to play in the Sotano basement for so long. It’s a rare thing to have such a special space and people who come and enjoy themselves to great music (and alcohol) late into the early hours.
Along the way I’ve had the good fortune to play alongside who I think are some of the most talented resident Djs, promoters and selectors in the area. We have done it DIY with the talent around us and had some absolutely top times down there.
Big Big thanks to the support and help of the owners, staff and so many people of which I am massively grateful. And to all the promoters who as a result of the Sotano sessions had me play at their events and the opportunities which have then spiralled off from these late night excursions- thank you 🙏🏻
We always play the music we think carries the best energy, spirit and message, wherever and whenever it comes from, no trends and no genres constricting the flow – as long as it’s honest and with positive intent. No two sessions are ever the same and that is something of which I’m very proud. We are only small but we do our thing 👊🏼👊🏼👊🏼
Join us on the 14th of September for a FREE event as we get to share 12 hours of brilliant music across two spaces in celebration of a great period and venue.
