Subterranea – Music Comes First

We started out as a podcast series back in 2013..then moved into putting nights on at the hallowed realms of Ziggy’s basement in York where we welcomed the likes of DC10 Resident Clive Henry and LFO member G-Man..from there we spread our wings further afield and delved into the Leeds scene, running regular nights at Wire and 212 Bar and welcoming esteemed guests like:- Nick Hoppner, Radioactive Man, Lawrence, Steve O’ Sullivan, Alex Smoke, Oskar Offermann, Redshape, Conforce, Annie Errez; alongside the finest local Leeds and UK talent.

We have now moved into different venues at Sheaf St. and the brand new Imaginarium. Previously we had some wicked parties at Eastern Bloc in Manchester and hope to do that again soon..

We now have 5 resident DJs, all equally elusive yet talented, each of whom has an intense love and knowledge of music, art and the scene in general.

After the rollercoaster of life over the past few years, we’re ready to bring things together and have some amazing parties soundtracked by DJs who know their onions..

We hope you will come and join us at the rave X

Phil Warner

Phil got his first pair of belt-drives when he was 16 and spent the next year of his life locked away learning how to use the things. Once confident in his ability and after upgrading to a pair of 1210’s Phil became a regular on the York house scene with his residency for No-Shanti at the Judges Lodgings. A move to Nottingham brought with it his own night Sherbet at the legendary Moog as well as various guest slots around the city before re-locating back to York in 2007. Phil has held residencies at Yorkshire nights One Step Beyond & Howdoyoudo? and has had guest slots at various nights including Yorks underground house night Freakin and FuturePast in Leeds. Having warmed up for DJ’s such as Jamie Anderson, Surgeon, Inigo Kennedy & Technasia Phil is an accomplished DJ in his own right and brings energy and groove to any dance floor. Phil plays exclusively on vinyl.
