After two amazing parties to commemorate Flux's 3rd birthday in both Leeds and London, we will begin our fourth year in Leeds at a brand new venue. The incredible and historic Temple Works will soon be opening up for 6 weeks only for 'Temple Time', a new project that will welcome a variety of underground music to the venue for the first time. Flux are privileged to host the opening party for this new series at one of the most unique spaces in Leeds. Joining us will be one of the UK's biggest success stories, Bristol-based label Futureboogie, with Hackman, Outboxx and Futureboogie DJs taking over the Main Room. In Room 2 will be hot new property Dan Shake, who recently became the first non-Detroit artist to be signed to Moodymann's Mahoganic Music imprint.

Young talent Hackman has been one of the most exciting artists to emerge from the UK’s ever-shifting dance music landscape in recent years. After forging his initial career in the bass-influenced post-dubstep landscape, including releases on RAMP offshoot PTN, Hackman has gone on to demonstrate increasingly soul-drenched influences, as seen in his EP for Greco Roman featuring the magnificent ‘Close’. Hackman has won fans across the board as his productions show increasing subtlety and maturity, and he seems to have found a fitting home at Futureboogie with his 'Change my Life' EP.
Operating from the core of Bristol’s 4/4 contingent with releases on iconic labels such as Idle Hands and Futureboogie, Outboxx are one of the city’s most recognisable acts, whose work adds colour to a tough bassweight staple using the jazz-inflected smokiness and key-driven hooks that defined house music back in the glory days. Outboxx’s bumper catalogue of peak-time singles have found their way into in the record bag of artists as diverse as Deetron, Ryan Elliott and Tama Sumo. 2013 saw their knack for dancefloor destruction and underground exploration leading them into new musical territories, delivering their debut self-titled LP to widespread critical fanfare. Outboxx uphold a unique live vibrancy of classic sounding soul, house and boogie, whilst pulling all the stops out of the best contemporary dance music.
Upcoming talent Dan Shake has achieved what no other has in over a decade: with his debut release in the music world, he has become the very first producer without a Detroit heritage or residency to land a release on Moodymann’s prestigious record label Mahogani Music. Based in London, the former Leeds student secured the feat in a charmingly anachronistic fashion: having just watched Kenny Dixon Jr perform alongside the 3 Chairs at Dimensions Festival, Dan simply handed over a demo CD with a collection of unreleased tracks. Moodymann was hooked almost instantantly, taking the first plunge on welcoming an outsider into his tight-knit crew of Detroit strong artists. Citing influence from the layered percussive rhythms of Afrobeat pioneers such as Tony Allen and Fela Kuti, the soul-drenched sampling of J Dilla and the kind of dark, dense grooves laid out by contemporary producers such as Flying Lotus and Motor City Drum Ensemble, Dan’s situation in winding up on a label renowned for encompassing all those traits is obviously a blessing for the young producer.
