System and Louche: A Royal Mash Up What better way to mark this June’s four-day Diamond Jubilee frenzy than with System and Louche in Leeds? Their Bank Holiday benders are becoming the stuff of legend, with this forthcoming party – the second of three summer events – promising a string of headliners at the new Mint Warehouse in Water Lane.

The 1000-capacity sister space of Leeds' credible Mint Club made its debut in January 2012 and has become a party staple for its sizeable space and phenomenal sound system.

Expect a marathon seven-hour set from Romanian trio A:rpia:r, plus German Ellen Allien, New Yorker M A N I K and UK bass sensation George FitzGerald. System and Louche residents Brinsley Kazak, Josh T, Annie Errez and Bobby O'Donnell will also be joining the bill at this all-day rave-up across three rooms – which includes the club’s sprawling purpose-built party terrace – all fully kitted out with Funktion One sound.

Minimal trio A:rpia:r – aka Raresh, Petre Inspirescu and Rhadoo – will be dishing up their signature expressive beats with an essential extended set. The Romanian label heads and Cocoon stalwarts – who are often regulars at Sven Vath’s Amnesia party in Ibiza – have become hot property on the house and techno circuit and are each respected techno overlords in their own right.

Jetsetting DJ, producer and breakthrough act M A N I K will also be destroying the dancefloor with the unique house style that has seen him recently tour Brazil, Japan, Asia and Europe, while Berlin-based head of BPitch Control – and Berghain and Watergate regular – Allien, will be bringing her experimental electronic sounds to the mix.

Dubstep driving force – and Hot Flush and Aus Music producer – George FitzGerald will also be creating waves with his fresh mash ups of house, techno and bass.

Flux will be cranking things up in Room 2, and with absentminds battling Inhabit magazine in the back room and an onsite gourmet BBQ fueling the 15-hour bedlam, this one's looking set to be a System and Louche Diamond Jubilee of royal proportions.
