Tommy Marshall is an audiovisual artist, film maker & producer. His video work focuses on repurposed found footage and animation to create hypnotic collages of sound and film. His work has featured in a number of exhibitions and events across his
production, with a number of album releases under the aliases of ‘Third Person Lurkin’ and ‘Marshall artist’. Yasmina Hamaidia is a multidisciplinary artist, working with a broad minded approach to print, collage, drawing and digital processes, she creates complex artworks on a variety of surfaces for interior and exterior display. She has works in many public places in

FESTIVALS P.10 - Hideout Festival Movement has had a busy old summer, check out what happened when we hit Croatia for Hideout Festival.
P.14 - Garden festival We keep those summer vibes going with our second stop on this sun drenched paradise, Garden Festival.

We relocate to Europe’s fastest rising clubbing destination for Europe’s fastest growing festival. On the eastern shore line of the Adriatic Sea you will find the beautiful country of Croatia. Its distinctive coast is an array of over a thousand various sized islands. On this journey however, we are only interested in one of them, Pag. Hideout immediately stands out as a unique festival on location alone. The site is set out over two areas, Novalja Town and Zcre Beach. Novalja is a picturesque place with a host of hotels, apartments, restaurants and bars. Don’t worry though, it is also by the sea and has a beach for the down time. This leads us to the first feature of Hideout, which
many say is its best, the boat parties. All the boat parties leave from Novalja bay and none of them disappoint. An exceptional amount of effort went in to production of these sun soaked, aquatic adventures. The promoters brought a long list of headline acts including Soulclap, Heidi, Benga and many more. The main site is located on Zrce beach and what a site it is. Hideout chooses to break the festival mould of tents and quirky stages. Instead, open-air super clubs line the beach and this where Hideout really shows they’ve got the minerals. Kalypso, Aquarius and Papaya are three epically designed clubs all with their own style and finesse. MOVEMENT MAGAZINE
Kalypso is the smallest of the three and is completely open air. With it’s tree lined backdrop it offers the most tropical environment of them all and it opens an hour later. We found this combination extremely effective, especially when we stumbled upon Scuba playing a marvellous set at 7am. A five minute walk along the beach and you come to Aquarius, a multi tiered club offering a little bit more by way of its swimming pool, plus indoors and outdoors stages. There is a lot of varying sized spaces for you to decide whether you want to have it large or find a corner to climb the walls. ‘Annie Mac presents’ was where we had it, with her stream of acts going through the night and Jackmaster dropping Sexual Healing as the sun cam up over the hills….tear. Finally we have the grand arena that is Papaya. Here is where the big players could be found and not surprisingly the big crowds followed. Not much can be said about this arena apart from it is an open-air dream space. With a backdrop of bungee jumping clubbers and mountains with a host of separate levels all over looking the main stage. This is where you go to get the real festival feel that Hideout offers in this tropical climate. Many who managed to make it out this year will tell you that the set of Hideout 2012 was Senor Loco Dice. Few words can really give the set justice as it felt like every necessary ingredient for a perfect memory occurred in those ninety minutes. Hideout we salute you!!!
Words: Kag Katumba
So you’ve just come off the stage after an impressive 3 hour set, how was it for you? Did you enjoy getting given the extra time? Did I? I could DJ forever if the crowd is right and let me tell these guys here did not let me down. I loved the vibe from start to finish and the reception I got from everyone was really humbling. I like to feed off the crowd you see and it really helps me manufacture the journey I want to take my listeners on. In all honesty, if they’d offered me another 3 hours I would’ve been like “Hey I’m your guy”. The way I see it is the longer I get the more people get to know me and my music tastes. How would you describe the feel and atmosphere of Hideout to anyone thinking of making the trip the Adriatic? Are there any specific features you enjoyed more than others? There isn’t a thing wrong with this place. It has so much to offer and I know you guys in the UK struggle
to keep the weather on your side but out here you don’t have to worry about it. I love the fact that all the arenas back on to the beach, not to mention there are beautiful music lovers everywhere. I think the best way for me to sum up Hideout is a party in paradise.
and tracks to make sure I don’t let them all down. The Leeds Warehouse gig that I did recently was a really special night.
Having been set up by Leeds based promoters did the connection to our northern home help or hinder your choice of tracks?
Well you might laugh, but it’s actually a club called Sir Henrys in Cork. They would let me play for as long as I wanted and I really felt I could be myself. When it got late they would lock the doors and if the police came they would keep them out. It was crazy in there, people would just dance the night away knowing they were safe to do so. You don’t get anything like that anymore, especially in Ireland.
Don’t worry you didn’t let us down!!! On a final note we’ll throw this at you… If you had one more set to play and you I suppose there is no point in me could choose any venue, where would you like it to be? asking if you would play here again then? Ha that is a good one. Is it allowed to be a place that Well that goes without saying, as doesn’t exist anymore? long as these guys will have me then hell yeah I’m going to keep Of course… coming
Well Leeds holds a very special place in my heart because every time I go there the place goes off. I mean I’ve played a lot of places all over the world but in Leeds the crowd knows their stuff. I kind of thrive off that because it means I have to draw on my best skills
September 2012 sees the highly anticipated opening of a new venue in Leeds. Canal Mills is the next installment from Sound Channel UK, a Leeds based events heavyweight who consistently deliver stellar line-ups in phenomenal settings. As joint founders of Hideout Festival in Croatia, Canal Mills is set to be a main player in the Leeds nightlife scene. Presented as a ‘creative-space’ the venue will see a host of film, theatre, visual arts, illustration, and live and electronic music events throughout its inaugural season. Kicking off on 28th September with a line-up to match no other in the city, the Simian Mobile Disco duo will be headlining the old textile mill alongside Julio Bashmore, Tensnake and The 2 Bears. Saturday night follows with the UK exclusive launch of Skreamism, the new tour from BBC Radio 1 DJ Skream. Oliver Jones, aka, Skream will be headlining with a three hour set, following Breakage, Hijack and Bobby Tank.
Venue director Mark Newton said;
Both nights will be a memorable introduction to the mainstay venue in Leeds. A series of installations will provide a backdrop to the venue's events, inspired by its history as a textile mill, courtesy of aesthetic construction team Mad Ferret. The venue will partner with time-honoured electronic club nights Wax:On and Metropolis, along with other esteemed labels, attracting culture vultures both locally and across the UK to this phenomenal new space. London-based, illustration-focused collective Technicolour Moon are set to link up with the new venue to create an outside wall mural, alongside an exhibition of their work, which will mark the start of a series of similar projects. Canal Mills will work with local and emerging art connoisseurs to open up the doors for students and other rising artists.
“Canal Mills is a creative space, a venue which is there for artists from all genres to be inspired by and exhibit in. We have been based in Leeds for a long time now and the city is a veritable mix of creative mediums. We want to provide a meeting point for them. Our launch weekend brings electronic DJs and illustrators under one roof, that’s the dream.” "We chose Canal Mills as it relates to Leeds' history as 'the city that made everything'. Our industry has evolved from textiles to arts and therefore Leeds could not be a more perfect place to host a creative space. We really wanted to include the city's history by supporting its future and we feel that Canal Mills was a perfect mix of industrial open space and historic essence. Re-purposing a local landmark, ensuring it does not go to waste or disrepair by introducing a younger generation to this significant building will hopefully ensure its continued usage for many more years to come."
Croatia continues to give electronic dance music pleasant new locations to enjoy a festival experience. Garden festival carries on that trend as it played host to its new home, Tisno. A sense of relaxation is apparent throughout this postcard town and nothing gets disturbed, as the capacity of the festival is 3000. Ideal if you are after the music and the atmosphere without having to plot a course on a compass and leave sand trail to each destination.
The festival site is unique in the respect that it lays on a holiday resort. This means that the onsite accommodation ranges from tents to nicely A/C apartments. The restaurant on site is cheap and bloody good so for the more mature festivalgoer, Garden festival is more than enticing. At the resort all of the daytime acts pay at the globe shaped main stage and down at the impressively placed, Tiki Bar and beach stage. If the shore isnâ€™t your thing on any day then you always have the choice to jump on the Argonaughty boat parties. The boat parties are quite simply banging as we found out on the Prosumer voyage. In a welcome break and the pirate ship feel makes the experience all the more enchanting.
On the beach stage and Main stage you always have a choice of funk, soul, disco and house. Yes thatâ€™s right you may find yourself listening to a range of uplifting tracks from dawn to dusk and that is what makes this place so special. When the site closes all is certainly not over as thee eagerly awaited, refurbished, Barberellas nightclub opens its gates. This open air, Funktion One driven event space is arguably the best part to Garden Festival a day of wonders and perfect memories. If you donâ€™t want to take my word for it then how about the word of Miss Laura Jones of Visionquest.

JUNE 27TH 2009 SAW SOMETHING VERY special, a fresh and new open-air day event that would shape up to be one hell of a party. The well-respected Luciano, ‘Poker Flat’ founder Steve Bug and underground house enthusiast Adam Shelton, joined the legendary Sven Vath at Temple Newsam, Leeds. Cocoon In The Park is completely unique at this stage. It’s the only Cocoon open-air event within the UK that is endorsed and set within 1500 acres of historic grounds, it creates it’s own vibrant atmosphere. Heavyweight tech label Cocoon takes what some people might class as its spiritual home on the White Isle. Originally based in Frankfurt where the brand holds regular parties, it’s perhaps more famously recognised for it’s star-studded Monday night residency at Amnesia, Ibiza. But if this is out of your budget than CITP is definitely for you. Settling at the 16th century ground of Temple Newsam, the day festival has continued to grow

and gain a firm place in the calendar of house heads around the UK. Since the debut of the Cocoon spectacle, joining Sven Vath in 2010 and 2011 the event has seen impressive sets from Loco Dice, Reboot, Ricardo Villalobos and man of the moment Seth Troxler. This draws our attention to July 7th where Cocoon again takes over Leeds. Joining ‘Papa Sven’ this year we can expect a hard-hitting set from Berlin favourite Cassy. She has an eye for unique house music that can range from deep and underground to a harder techno-influenced sound, Cassy represents this through her self-titled label. Tunisian DC10 resident, Desolat founder and all round leading name, Loco Dice. His well-selected sets represent his vast music knowledge, whilst the diversity of Dice’s productions has gone from strength to strength on each release. After the recent worldwide success of the intimate ‘Under 300’ tour, expect a heavy techno infused spectacle. The trendy Visionquest brand lay an impressive

hand with owners Seth Troxler, Ryan Crosson and Shaun Reeves. The Detroit founded label has impressed with their releases that range from Dinky to Footprintz. Fun yet intense sound is expected, with a lot of summer anthems to be heard. The ever growing, ever impressive yearly exhibition is yet again set to be another huge hit. Prime location, experienced line up, and in the prime of the summer. This is one event that is certainly not to be missed.

Hypercolour in forest? Would you recommend that such a lively bunch be let loose in such an environment?
Interview performed by Kag Katumba
We talk to Hypercolours Charlie Banks & discuss woodland antics
It's completely out of the way from anywhere else and you seem to be in your own little bubble for the weekend.
Yes of course i'd recommend it, especially at Gottwood and with everything else around us and all the other great party people here this is the perfect place for Hypercolour to come and let loose. Last weekend I played at Glade Festival which surprisingly was even more remote than Gottwood, it took me about 7 hours to drive there but in the end it was well worth the journey. It's a good look for Hypercolour to come and showcase their artists at a festival like Gottwood, everyone here seems to be on the same wavelength musically and you don't seem to get that at many festival which I think is great! Did you guys manage to see the legendary Robot Viking cousin of Techno Viking? Robot Viking? I've never heard of him only the legend that is Techno Viking. That guy has been the highlight of my festival season, he was at Glade last week busting out his infamous hand/dance moves and he's also here at Gottwood going in hard! You know in Ibiza where in clubs they hire the best looking stage dancers for nights, well I think if Hypercolour ever end up having a night in a superclub then they just hire him to dance and maybe Robot Viking as well. It would be a lotmore entertaining in my opinion. There is now a facebook page dedicated to him now as well.
We are surrounded by quite the display of lights and artwork ...Has the hedonistic side to Gottwood had an influence on your sets? I definitely think the lighting, visuals and artwork play a massive roll at festivals, the most random and weird festivals are without doubt the best festivals in my opinion and Gottwood hasn't failed to impress on this front. I'm not sure if it's affected my set but still, I loved it none the less and I can say that it's the first time i've ever played in the front of a boat before. Can you each give our readers you own personal advert for what to expect at this festival? A festival full of 1500 like minded individuals who are all here to party to the best Electronic music. It's completely out of the way from anywhere else and you seem to be in your own little bubble for the weekend. More on to yourself now... We know that they pump out the productions at Hypercolour so what can we all look forward to from Mr Banks? My Hypercolour release at some point which i'm slowly working on. A remix i'm doing for CP Connection forthcoming on Love Not Money Records and some collaborations that I can't quite say at the moment. I'm also playing some great gigs around the UK in the next few months, you can find all that out on my Facebook page.

LAURA JONES Words: Joe Morris
So as we're in Croatia that seems like a good place to start. Have you played here before? And how did you prepare for playing at the Garden Festival. It's quite an older, shall we say more clued up crowd here, did that affect you in terms of how you might approach you're set? No I've never played Croatia before and in fact this is my first festival abroad so I'm really excited about it. To be honest, I didn't really think too hard about it. I was just honoured to be asked and I'm just gonna do my thing and see how it goes.
But did it put you at ease, knowing that the crowd here are knowledgeable and expect to hear good music?
Last night you stepped in and helped Louche out by standing in for Dyed Soundorom, how did you find that?
Well that's always nice. The last ten month's have been so hectic for me and I've pretty much experienced all types of crowds and scenarios in that time. So like I said I haven't thought too much about it so I'll just asses on the night how the crowd is and what the vibe is like and go from there.
I was quite knackered after getting here late but I was pleased to be asked. The crowd was cool and it's always nice to play back to back with Gavin which I don't do very often. Although I did miss out on seeing Nicolas Jaar who I really wanted to check out as I've still not seen him play!
"Seeing so many great DJ's come into Leeds during the period I was really getting into house music was a great influence. It's essentially, like a mini London"
You've played out in Ibiza quite a few times now, we wanted to ask how do you see it there now in comparison with Croatia? Before DJ'ing out in Ibiza I spent many years holidaying and also worked a couple of seasons there so it does hold a special place in my heart. Obviously this is my first time in Croatia so maybe this is a question to ask me after a few more visits but I definitely sense Croatia is starting to attract a younger crowd. This could be their Ibiza, and also it's a lot more affordable and cheaper here. MOVEMENT MAGAZINE
Lets step away from Croatia and the Garden Festival and talk about your incredible rise over the last twelve to eighteen months. How has it been for you? Emotional! Yeah it's been amazing. I was working in marketing before doing a nine to five job straight from University, they understood I was trying to pursue a music career in the background and were cool about it. I did a crash course on DJ'ing but along the way I had a few health issues so I'd resigned myself to the fact it wasn't going to happen for me. I was still producing music and when I finally did get a couple of releases out they were so well received it ultimately helped me to get where I am now. But even though I'm new to a lot of people
I have actually been producing for the last three or four years. Do you feel that being from Leeds has helped you? With such a rich clubbing history and incredible nightlife scene, has that helped you with your DJ'ing and producing? Definitely, like Ibiza I think Leeds inspired me to start DJ'ing. Seeing so many great DJ's come into Leeds during the period I was really getting into house music was a great influence. Essentially it's like a mini London, we are quite spoilt really. And it's like a family scene too, I'm really good friends with the Basics crew who obviously know their stuff back to front and they've been really helpful for me also.
You've been there a while now, are you not feeling the pull to move to London or Berlin or somewhere like many other DJ's and producers on the house scene? It's funny, when Gavin and I were at Sonar this year we decided in the space of twenty four hours we were gonna move to Barcelona and definitely not move to Barcelona! We saw so many people getting mugged, it's just so rife. But yeah I am starting to think about maybe moving away from Leeds to get the creative juices flowing but we haven't decided where as yet. You want to start using your own vocals in your tracks we hear, is that something you've had a background in? Yeah I did some classical and contemporary vocal training in my teens but I haven't done much singing since then. I'm a little rusty but I'm enjoying it and also learning to write lyrics as that's a whole different ball game
that I haven't experienced before. So just to finish up could you tell us if you and Gavin have any collaborative projects coming up? At the minute we don't have anything in the pipeline as we are busy with our own stuff, but we did work on some tracks but just haven't got around to finishing them. We'd like to do some tracks together in the not too distant future, and maybe down the line when I'm a bit more established we may do our own label at some point. Or even do some live performances where I sing and Gavin control the production. I'd really like to do a live thing but again its just finding the time to put it all together.

FLUX Words: Jordan Gray
Flux has gained a respectable audience in its fairly short existence. With regular parties in Leeds and an impressive involvement with overseas festivals, the party has grown with time. How did Flux begin and was starting your own night always something you wanted to do?
Johno: Being a DJ and a promoter for other peoples nights, it had always been a dream to create my own night with my own musical and creative freedom. My friend Lydia needed to raise money for a charity project so I offered to run a club night to help and we doubled up together for the launch party at Wire. What followed was a Christmas holiday spent planning and conceptualising Flux, which should really have been spent writing my dissertation! The first night was literally 250 friends all gathered together for what seemed like a birthday party. It was a huge success and as with all nights, the best nights are the ones where all of your friends are out. Combine that with music you love and we were onto something! Rob Cary, Jacques Adda, Johno Williamson
What gave you guys the inspiration to start your own night? Was it to create something different or just add a little diversity to the current house music scene? Johno: DJing and putting on house parties was kind of where it all started, and that gave me the buzz and motivation to want to do it properly. Whatâ€™s the difference between getting 300 people over to your house and getting them to a club? Surely putting on a club night would be no harder! I was quite naive back then and didnâ€™t really understand what it took to run a club night, which almost resulted in me losing my 2:1! Jacques: At the start of University, it was quite obvious that D&B and Dubstep governed the student nightlife and that was what most students listened to. However, I myself have been a fan of house music for years and the distorted sounds of Plastician or Scream were never my cup of tea. Nights like Louche, Monocult and Back2Basics promote some of the best electronic music in the country and have been doing so for years. But with their parties MOVEMENT MAGAZINE

Tory Clark, Alex "Beetle" Wall, Jonny Cade
Why Leeds? Was it purely because you all met in the city and it seemed appropriate?
being on weekends, it was time for us to step in and offer something a little different on a weeknight and introduce house and techno to the student crowd. Creating a distinctive yet appropriate name can be difficult I believe. What was the inspiration behind your name? Johno: To be honest, I definitely spent all Christmas holidays brainstorming and overthought it… so it’s slightly embarrassing/deep and meaningful! Flux by meaning, refers to the movement and fusion of things, which I thought was relevant to the sound I wanted to push – a combination of house, techno, disco and live performances, really drawing together all the different elements of underground electronic music. That was then the basis for the X logo with the 4 arrows pointing in. What were your techniques when getting things going and making it official? How did you let people know about Flux?
Johno: The name, artwork, bookings and logistics all took some time to learn and do initially. It was ultimately about getting the right team on board, friends who were really into their music. Then a ridiculous amount of hours spent flyering! Often a group of friends are generally fans of the same music and scene. How did you guys meet though, was it through a love of music or due to other circumstances? Beetle: We were all friends at uni together apart from Jacques, who was found behind the bins of Hyde Park Pub. We took pity on him and decided to take him under our wing. What truly set the ball rolling? At which point or party did you believe that Flux was in full operation and began on its journey? Jacques: Our summer day and night party at Stinky’s Peephouse was definitely what got the ball rolling. We put on a 24 hour
Johno: It’s really a once in a lifetime opportunity being at university with the opportunity to meet so many like-minded people. I guess back at home in the Lakes, something like this would be much harder to pull off as I just wouldn’t really know enough people into house and techno to put a party on. With over 100,000 students in Leeds, anything is possible! I was in my final year and it was a now or never opportunity, which I’m now extremely glad I went for. Some punters who aren’t huge fans of the music still attend for other reasons than the line-ups. Flux is very popular for other reasons than just its impressive bookings. Why do you believe Flux is so popular? Phil: I’d certainly like to think that people enjoy our lineups! We do try to bring over a variety of artists that our crowd (or even Leeds) may not have seen before and I think that does keep things fresh. But I do think it’s more than that. We know our crowd value the atmosphere at our parties and we always try to make sure we don’t overfill venues so people can really dance, we try to give a lot of thought to decorations and visuals etc. In such a nightlife focused city, I think people appreciate the little things. I also
think we really struck lucky in finding a venue as compatible with our vision as The Beaver Works to be our home. Jacques: We also like to keep things fresh and change venues every now and again, ensuring that our parties do not get boring and that they constantly provide something a little different.
"It’s very important to remember our roots in Leeds and use the experiences we gained when we start up in London. " Would you describe the flux bookings as reflective to your personal music taste? What are your favourite genres outside the artists you book? Johno: Between the four of us, we all have our specific tastes and there’s often lengthy debates as to who gets booked, but I guess that’s a good thing as it keeps it varied. Personally, I’m very much a believer in booking musicians as well as DJs and pushing the live elements through. Beetle: A variety of bands kick started my interest in music, with festivals and the live element cementing my obsession with it. This then developed further and by the time I was in Leeds, electronic music was on the cards. I’d definitely say our bookings reflect our tastes, that’s a large part of the motivation behind running Flux, being able to book
artists you want to see! Phil: We’ve always made a conscious effort to book artists we enjoy and respect, rather than some flavour of the month who will draw a crowd this year but be forgotten the next. In terms of genres, I also enjoy a wide range of music and have had numerous obsessions over the years, but I particularly get a lot of enjoyment out of listening to soul, where so much of the inspiration for house music has been taken from. Jacques: After going to Boom 2012 and seeing Andrew Weatherall’s “A Love From Outer Space” at Beacons, my love for acid house alongside other genres encompassing weird psychedelic elements has grown even stronger, the side of me that John always tries to keep on a tight leash! However, I am a very open minded person when it comes to music and the answer to your second question is that I cannot say I have a favourite genre. For me, good music is good music and that’s all there is to it. Flux has seen itself invited Dimensions in Croatia and other festivals and success has come quickly. Would you have ever thought your growth would be this rapid? Jacques: Definitely not. Although, we have worked hard to get this far and it is such a great feeling to see that our efforts have been worth it. Johno: It’s pretty hard to comprehend how far we’ve come in just a year and a half.
It’s been a huge team effort and there’s a lot of people to thank for where we are now. Beetle: Yeah, I agree with Johno. You kind of take the whole thing in your stride, bit by bit. The differences between our first party and our most recent one are so large that you can’t really compare them and it is very hard to comprehend.
“For me, good music is good music and that’s all there is to it.” The flux residents are well respected solid DJ’s themselves, do think this helps give the night a boost in terms of interest? Johno: Yes definitely. With Robert Cary now on board as well, I feel like we’ve got all bases covered in terms of our Flux sound. Maybe it’s time to test the waters and do a residents night only and see who shows up!
(Nevada) – love the freedom involved with these festivals, rules and regulations are almost non-existent. These places leave it to the crowd to act responsibly and to respect one and other so that everyone has the best experience possible. Moreover, the music in these places never seems to stop! Despite its already quick expansion, what are the plans for the future of Flux? Are there any new locations around the UK or even outside the UK that you have in store for yourselves? Johno: Jacques and I couldn’t resist one more year in Leeds, so Flux in Leeds will carry on. Lots of ideas in the pipeline Ibiza was definitely the highlight of our summer, so we’ll be planning a second trip back there for sure. We’ve also got a little weekend excursion to Berlin or Amsterdam on the cards for autumn.
Jacques: Jonny Cade is also moving forward with production and is now playing at some of the biggest parties around, which is definitely a huge boost for us. He has now moved to London and is going to help us get the ball rolling with our parties down South.
Phil: We are very excited about our new website, which launched recently, and that will be a major focus going forward with Alex Sainty joining the team. Whilst our eyes are purely on Leeds and London in terms of parties, the new online platform gives us the opportunity to reach a wider audience, nationally and even internationally, and hopefully give a whole load of new people an insight into Flux’s ethos and what we’re all about. Jacques: I think it’s all been said apart from this – SEE YOU AT THE FRONT!
Everybody has a favourite location or venue. What would be the dream for you guys in terms of hosting a party? Where would you love to see Flux? Everyone: Burning man
Beetle: Phil and I have now both moved down to London, which sadly means no more flyering in the cold outside the Parkinsons building. We’ve managed to work things out so that we stay fully involved, and we’re going to be handling bookings and help develop the new website this year, as well as preparing for our long-awaited London launch and all the new challenges that it will bring. We’ve scouted some really interesting venues and are going to be involved with some special events down there. It’s very important to remember our roots in Leeds and use the experiences we gained setting up Flux when we start up in London. Look out for Flux in London come the end of 2012 and early 2013!

YASMINA A RT. Highly talented Yasmina Hamaidia pulls together aspects of theatre, the dark and the surreal to create an array of imaginative pieces spanning from bold prints to grandiose interiors. Through her fascinating dreamlike style, her work brings a sense of the extraordinary and the fantastical into the everyday realm. The result is an impressive (a thought-provoking) portfolio that is rich in both emotion and curiosity.
forms, Yasmina is unrestricted in how she can express her style. “I got into textiles because it was more free,” she told us. “I was more interested in making 3D spaces that you could go inside and it can be more of an experience.” The flexibility means she can be spontaneous and uninhibited, which translates into honest and original art. Hamaidia has also tutored others in the ways of her work at Bristol uni, and still does talks at her old college. It was after her stint at Bristol that she decided to pursue her ambition to work for herself. This creative freedom allows her to work on a multiplicity of designs. She can be called upon to create bespoke tattoo illustrations, club flyer design or even stop-motion animations for club visuals. There’s no end to the variety the northern artist can produce; her tshirt design company Bedroom Gully intricate illustrations and bold print style. She favours the experiential side of art, working with spaces and textures as well as with collage and canvas. Her fanciful compositions pull from a range of influences, including surreal-

Her approach to interiors is inspired by theatre; the environments she creates are like changing stage sets, with the objects as the actors telling a silent, personal story. “The way you display your things says a lot about you… like the objects tell a story in the room.” Expect no magnolia paint with her designs, instead you’ll find intrigue, with a sense of mood and personality. So what does she want for the future? Interiors are a favourite of hers because the scope and scale that it gives her: “I want to do some really with being pigeonholed however, she also looks to push more with both her painting and her drawing work.

The first thing that becomes immediately apparent when talking to Greg Wilson is his absolute unbridled passion; that being his love of music and in particular the championing of the influence of black club music that resonates throughout club land today. We chatted with Greg at this summer’sGarden Festival in Croatia in what proved to be one of the most insightful and thoroughly enjoyable interviews Movement has done to date.

But the attitude at the time from the record companies was that UK DJ’s don’t remix, it’s purely a US thing, which was crazy! So I thought well if I can’t get
Although Greg’s involvement in the music industry spans more than three decades, his career as a DJ came to an abrupt and untimely end in 1983 when he took the decision to hang up the headphones. It’s the question most levelled at him as to why he decided to quit when things wereseemingly going so well, but as Greg explains there were a myriad of reasons for bowing out. In the early eighties you started to see a real influence of what was happening in the New York club

Walk into any club or live music venue that cares about the way t one thing in common; funny looking speakers placed strategically Funktion One sound systems and over the last twenty years they distorted speakers and in are state of the art, sonically accurate lo mind. Movement was granted an ultra-rare interview with Funkt One are the industry leaders in sound system installations. Q. You often hear by people who have been associated with dance music for a long time, especially the Americans and DJs in particular from the disco scene in New York in the late seventies and early eighties, that Richard Long’s sound system in the Paradise Garage is the best system they ever heard. How do you think those systems stand up to the Funktion One systems of today and A. It’s hard to say how the Richard Long system would compare with Funktion One systems. However, there are some obvious use of bass horns with an eight foot mouth. Although they would have sounded good the downside is that they occupied valuable floor space which is not often available in clubs today. Large format compression drivers were used for the midrange, high passed at 800 hertz. Compared to the Funktion One cone driven high-mids these large format compression drivers would have sounded harsh. A further point is at that time vinyl with analogue mixers would have been used which would have sounded way better than today’s average digital set up.
Q. Do you think it helps that when club spaces are created the design process is sensitive to the sound? And can badly designed clubs hinder the sound no matter how good the system is? A. You really do wonder how a club can be designed without any regard to room acoustics but it happens frequently and will compromise any system no matter how good. Q. And just to follow on from that, once a Funktion One system has been installed are they set up so no adjustments are ever required or do you think it helps for clubs to have an engineer who knows what they are doing to tweak them when needed? A. Once a system has been dialled in with a capacity crowd there is no need to adjust the system set up. If you can find a good engineer he or she can at least mitigate with equalisation the audio nonsense that some DJs/Artistes play out to people. Q. One of the things about Funktion One a regular clubber might notice is how you can talk and hear the other person when stood right next to a speaker. Could you explain why this is?
y their sound is presented and you might just find that they all have ally in and around the auditorium. These odd shaped speakers are hey have revolutionised the nightclub experience. Gone are harsh, loudspeaker systems often custom designed with the club space in ktion One founder Tony Andrews to gain insight into why Funktion
A. It is remarkable and encouraging how may people comment on this aspect of our systems. I believe it is because the packets of audio from a Funktion One system are so clean, tidy and well organised that it is possible to listen to the music and hold an audible conversation in the open spaces between the packets of audio. Q. Obviously any DJ worth his or her salt should know the do’s and don’ts when playing on a good system, but what advice can you give to someone when playing on a Funktion One system to get the best out of it? A. Don’t run the mixer’s input and output in the red. Don’t use poor quality source material such as MP3s. MP3s are not a professional medium. Do use a decent sound card such as the ECHO firewire. Q. With the rise of digital DJing and the on-going argument that vinyl or analogue sounds better, what are your thoughts on this? Should the format of the music played not matter, is the system only as good as the source of the signal that’s fed into it? A. Yes, you could say any sound system is only as good as the source material it is fed. Regarding digital versus analogue I’m not against digital as a musical medium. In fact done properly digital sound
quality can surpass analogue. However, to get digital right involves so many more processes and specialised bits of equipment compared with analogue that it very often goes wrong. Furthermore, digital usually involves some level of latency and unless signals are synchronised down to microseconds the auditory system will be disturbed by this and it won’t sound “right”. Q. In your opinion which club has the best system in the world and why? system in particular as there are several which spring to mind. Right now I would say the main room in Space Ibiza because the room treatment. Q. And know I have to ask you which is the worst!? If you’d rather not name and shame please tell us why the club’s sound system can be so bad! A. There are many bad systems all over the world but the worst collection I have heard were in Jakarta, Indonesia. The fundamental thing to appreciate about a sound system is that it is a chain of events. It only requires one weak link to compromise the whole story whether it is poor source material, over driven mixers or distorting compression drivers. Joe Morris MOVEMENT MAGAZINE |

ACROSS THE PENNINES P.38 - Idiosync Not happy dominating Manchesterâ€™s club scene Butler & Mert of idiosync talk to us about their new label too.
P.40 - Jamie Jones Hot Creationâ€™s label head takes some time out of his non-stop schedule to talk to Movement.
P.44 - The Warehouse Project The 2012 season line-up has been announced and we have it all for you.
Hello, and first of all thanks for being here with me today. Could you please introduce yourselves and give the movement fans a brief history of iDiOSYNC?
In recent years it has become almost a cliché. You all know the story, a group of music enthusiast meet at Uni, and after longwinded debates unhappy with the generic music in there local area, they make the nerve racking decision to start their own night… As cliché as this may sound the iDiOSYNC boys have done exactly this, but there is something superior about this Manchester based night. Ask any of its cult followers and they will enthusiastically tell you all about the distinctive parties thrown monthly at Joshua Brooks’ and how fluently on top form they always are.
Both: “Hi there, we are Josh Butler and Jay Murt ‘Butler & Murt’. Really iDiOSYNC music started as a side project for the club event we hold at Joshua Brookes in Manchester. Our first release set the tone for the label with ‘Ed Regans – Ghostly Notes,’ which was a forward thinking electronica piece. Remixes featured from Matthew Burton, Vision Quest, The Dark Side of Meat and our selves, Butler & Murt. Our second release came from local Leeds producers Alcatraz Harry & Ali Scott, a three track EP titled ‘He’s Mine’ which featured a quality remix from Saytek.”
This year the brand has managed to branch out and start a new label to coincide with their existing night. I caught up with rising talents and two of iDiOSYNC’s label instigators ‘Butler & Murt’, to gain a better understanding of the boy’s ethos and mentality behind running one of the U.Ks fastest growing underground record labels. MOVEMENT MAGAZINE
Josh: “Well I knew Guy Richards for a few years before he started the night with Leon Riley and Eoin Thomas. This is when I introduced Jay to the lads. Jay and myself had talked about starting a label and it seemed only natural to ask the lads at iDiOSYNC to join forces with us due to our similar tastes in music and how well we got on. The rest is history. “
A CATCH UP WITH IDIOSYNC’S BUTLER & MURT Words: Thomas Ashley
The five key members that make up the iDiOSYNC team have continuously prided themselves on debuting new and exciting artists into the UK. By doing so they have managed to stay one step ahead of the trend, effortlessly carving themselves a permanent fixture within the electronic community.
How did you initially get involved with the Manchester based night?
Could you explain to movement your musical influences? Both: “Well… this list could be a long one to be fair. We are generally just music lovers. Anything from ambient experimental to Gabba and everything in between. We listen to it all.” How would you summarise your labels sound? Is it strictly house music or is there more to it then that? What was it that triggered the decision to start the record label? Jay: “The idea was to use the label as an outlet for not only our own music, but to push local artists more and give them an opportunity to break into the market.” Josh: “There is so much good music being made and a lot of artists are not getting the exposure they deserve. We are all about pushing forward thinking music from up and coming artists and getting them heard!”
Jay: “As our musical tastes vary so much, we are not really attempting to pin an individual sound down. The label showcases forward thinking house music, in keeping with the idiosyncratic style the brand was born with.”
So, with all five of you involved it must be hard sometimes to agree on one track, what is it that you all look for in a potential release candidate? Josh: “Firstly and most importantly we all have to agree that we like a track. We are all constantly sifting through music and passing it on to each other to check out. There has to be a stand out element in a track, a wow factor if you will.” Jay: “Yeah, we are always looking at new music and welcome any artist that is trying to get there music heard. We listen to all demo’s that are sent to us and will give feedback where we can, everyone feel free to send us one.” DEMO SUBMISSION - email@example.com
Finally, what has iDiOSYNC got in line for us next? Both: “Our next release is from a young up and coming Irish producer ‘Brame’. He has tracks forthcoming on OFF Records and Tsuba and we are really glad to have him on board. The EP has three deep house tracks one being a remix from Manchester based ‘ReKreation’, who have just collaborated with ‘Saytek’.” Thank you and good luck with the labels future releases. As always Movement would like to personally thank Jay and Josh and all of the iDiOSYNC crew for taking the time out to chat. The label and night continue to impress us here at Movement, and we too are big on supporting our local artists.

A HOT CREATION Interview: Jamie Jones Words: Marcus Barnes
As label head at Hot Creations and one of the world's best-known DJs, Jamie Jones could easily rest on his laurels and take advantage of his high standing in the DJ ranks. But, instead, he continues to graft away, a self-confessed workaholic who refused to take short cuts on the road to fame. Having been an avid fan of house music since his early teens, Jamie has maintained a consistently high work ethic for well over a decade and the results are clear to see. Returning to The Warehouse Project this autumn with a huge party based on his Paradise night at legendary Ibiza club DC10, we spoke to Jamie about his first experience of DC10, how Hot Creations was born and the sacrifices he's made in the name of success...
When did you first go to DC10? What was it like back then? About 2000. It was completely raw. Free for everyone to get in, an after-party for about 200 people. Inside it was just bare... I remember the first time I went, being sat on a cardboard box next to a bassbin for four hours nodding my head. How did you end up getting involved with the people that run it and getting a gig there? It was through Clive Henry, I became friends with Clive and then got introduced to them through him. They all knew my face because I'd been going there for years, every week, and I got to know them a bit more. Once I started making more music and DJing more they asked me to play there for a closing party, then two or three times the next year, four or five the next and then about two years after I became a proper resident. MOVEMENT MAGAZINE
Can you remember playing there for the first time? Yeah, it was inside for their closing party. It was a bit of a nightmare because I'd just moved over to Serato back then and it sort of kept going wrong, but I pulled it off and it was cool. How did you hook up with Lee Foss? I believe it was in Ibiza? Yeah, we met in Ibiza about ten years ago in about 2001, we were both working in San Antonio. We got on really well and decided to live together the following year, so we spent a season living together in San An, and then lived together in Playa D'en Bossa the following year.
the Sunday night and it went on from there. We decided to make some music together, he was in LA using the studio of some friends of ours [Droog owners of Culprit] and we just started making some tunes together, that's how Hot Natured started really. Then we started the label [Hot Creations] about a year and a half after that. You've got the Hot Natured album forthcoming as well… Yeah that's the biggest thing I'm working on right now. It's all written, we're taking it back into a big recording studio to mix it down, reworking some of the parts and re-recording some of the vocals to tweak everything and get it to the best level it could possibly be. We've done about 80% of the album now. When will it be out?
And how did the whole Hot Creations thing happen? It started off as Hot Natured when we were in Miami. WMC in 2008. We were hanging out at the house we'd rented on the Monday [after WMC had finished] playing disco and stuff. We just had a break from house, and we said, “Next year we should do something where we can all just hang out together, with all our mates, just doing this.” So we did the first Hot Natured the year after, on
It's very time-restricted because I'm always busy, and so are the others. But we try to get a few days every week when we can get together. It usually takes one or two days for each track so we're going to be finished, I would say, by mid-September and then probably have it out about three months after that, so I’d say the beginning of next year.
“Inside it was just bare... I remember the first time I went being sat on a cardboard box next to a bassbin for four hours nodding my head.”
What does the future hold for you? Well, I've always been a house music person so I'm always going to want to DJ. Obviously as I get older I probably won't do as many gigs, I'll spend more time producing in the studio. I'll probably do more producing and writing for other people, just trying to be a little bit more settled in one area rather than darting off here and there every other day, it can take it's toll on you a bit after a while.
How do you feel about being held, by some, as responsible for bringing back the house sound? I tend not to think about it too much, people comment on it quite often but I just see it as us doing our thing. It's very cool to see that it's reignited a passion for it, but there's more than just me responsible, there's a lot of people around me that have been really influential in doing it.
It must get to you a bit after a while. Yeah, it's amazing because I've got to see a very large portion of the world and met some amazing people and experienced things I've never experienced before – but, after a while you miss being settled in and not having to constantly think about making your flights and getting enough sleep to be able to operate. Speaking about being settled, do you get to go back to Wales much? Not very often, unfortunately. I go back once, maybe twice a year and my family come down to London every once in a while too. I've been doing this quite a while now and you do kind of get them saying, “When are you going to slow down?” I try to make to the important things like weddings and my sister's birthday, but I have missed out on a lot of stuff. Do you think it's worth the sacrifice most of the time? Most of the time, yeah. I wouldn't change anything I've done. I wouldn't be where I am. I think the best thing is now, in this position, I can help lots of people. I can help my family. I'm able to help new artists and stuff, artists on the label that were where I was a few years ago; on your arse with no money, struggling to get signed and get gigs and so on to eventually making a living from something that you've been so passionate about for so many years. So just seeing that is very rewarding. It’s fantastic sometimes when someone can have one track on a Hot Waves compilation and immediately shoot up the ranks... Yeah, it's great when I see that, a lot of people really deserve it and they're really grateful to be in that position and to be able to do it.

BEST CLOTHING Since 2008, at the bottom end of Leeds town centre, Best has become one of the most frequented fashion outlets in all of Leeds. Perri Isa and Alex Blanco have made sure the ethos of the shop has always been forward thinking, even if some of their designs and work take inspiration from the past.
“Vintage has been done to death” are the words of Perri the founder “We would rather count ourselves as second hand designer outlet or even future created fashion”. These are words of experience not just outlandnew spin on making fashion unique to the wearer because they let their customers have a firm say in how they want to be clobbered up.
The hardworking team make the environment unimpressionable and laidback which has caused them to build up an extremely strong cult folthe area for their sound fashion advice and generally good banter. One more way they set themselves apart is their alterations service for an array of clothing. You can have your jeans, trousers, jackets and sleeves
altered which really is one of Best’ best attributes. It’s a pleasure to see the ambition and individuality that the Best team strive for, especially as Leeds has become quite well known for its vintage style scene. In a place, which is oozing with big personalities and egos this really is a place that helps bring down the heads from the proverbial pedestal.

Birdsyard is the brainchild and life passion of store owner Michelle Walton, who, since opening her first shop, â€˜Bird Shellâ€™ in Trinity Arcade in 2007 has gone on to become a regular name in Leeds' fashion scene. She met up with Movement to tell us how things have developed as well as what the future holds for this multi award winning store. Itâ€™s been over two years since Birdsyard first opened their doors to Leeds and the city is still just as excited by the unique vintage arcade as it was back in July 2010. Michelle and the rest of the team, have lovingly nurtured and cared for the store over the last two years allowing it to develop and grow into a multi floor, independent retail outlet with many varying boutiques each complimenting one and other. Not forgetting the vintage tea room that now takes pride of place as you enter the store. Birdsyard has proven to be a very successful platform for many independent retailers & designers to get their creations into the public eye and test their products on the market. So much so in fact, that the store already has a list of awards and accolades as long as your arm, including, best newcomer 2010/11, best designer 2010/11 & 2011/12 and best jewellery 2011. So, what can we expect from year 3 then? Well, with the store ever growing and going from strength to strength, money from Mary Portas will hopefully be used to beautify the yard area outside of the boutique for events and functions; show ing there is plenty more to come from
Birdsyard yet as they continue to innovate and lead the way in unique thinking towards retail in Leeds. If you have an event or special night out planned why not take advantage of the new hire service now available too?

PRIMO’S Words, Dan Mckenna The Corn Exchange has seen many shops and eateries win our hearts over the years but since 2010 Primo’s Gourmet Hotdogs have been leading the charge. The winning combination of great choice, well resourced ingredients and generous pohelp Primo’s to grow and expand. May this year was a landmark month for Primo’s, seeing them open a second store at Xscape in Castleford. There’s more to Primo’s then just ‘Dogs’ though, with deli Bagels, Salads and Cubanos as well as amazing ice-cream milkshakes, smoothies and more, it’s instantly clear to see Primo’s have really done their homework. We opted not to build our own hotdog (not an easy choice) and went for the ‘Mexicana’ (pictured) for £3.95 and a Latte from £2.00. The ‘Mexicana’, an all beef Frankfurter, topped with Monterey Jack cheese, guacamole, sour cream, salsa and jalapenos, is not for the fainthearted but definitely doesn’t disappoint. All that topping means with the first bite (if you can manage to fit it in) you get an explosion of flavours as the peppers hit you followed by the cool sour cream, before the fresh baked bun and Frankfurter comethrough. With student discount, varied daily deals incluing Cuban Tuesdays, Bagel Wednesdays and the ‘Dog
to make Primo’s a regular haunt whenever you’re in the city.
