On this day last year (7th January 2013) the Sub:terranea project was formed and we kicked off proceedings with an excellent mix from resident DJ, promotor and co-head honcho Rory Flynn. A year on, 25 podcasts, countless radio shows and 7 events later we’re celebrating our birthday and we can’t think of a better way to do that than with a 3 hour all vinyl belter of a mix from one of the trio that have made it all happen. Here’s a few words from the man himself;
“To celebrate a year since I was asked to launch the Sub:terranea podcast series I decided to put together a mix that represents everything I love about electronic music. Rather than pull out mainly new tracks I chose to go through my full vinyl collection, putting together some classic records that go right back to when I started DJing in 2001. I wanted to keep it interesting for 3 hours with smooth transitions and enough variety. I hope you enjoy”
More about Rory;
Ever since being introduced to the sound of Tyrant at the age of 16 and investing in a pair of 1210s, Rory has immersed himself in underground dance music. His sound is one that draws influences from lost nights at intimate clubs such as Back to Basics, The Garage and Mint Club in Leeds, Freakin in York and the old Bomb in Nottingham. It is a style that has little respect for genre boundaries and instead focuses on creative electronic music, encompassing elements of deep house, techno, acid and more.
Rory is now based in Leeds where he is establishing himself as a DJ and producer within the city’s vibrant underground music scene. So far he’s played alongside the likes of Tom Demac, Crazy P, PBR Streetgang, Buckley and Annie Errez and is also monthly resident at Sub:terranea in York. Now signed up to Midnight Social Recordings for his first release and with plenty more music in the pipeline, 2014 is looking like a big year for Rory.
