Erick Morillo to headline Hacienda Soak night in Leeds

FAC 51 The Hacienda and Soak return to Leeds for a very special show Easter Saturday March 31 at Church where international artist Erick Morillo headlines alongside the best of The Hacienda's and Leeds talent, Graeme Park, Mike Pickering, Ralph Lawson and Marshall.

The FAC51 Hacienda Soak bill includes several famous names.

The night is the second Hacienda Soak at Church following last year’s fully sold out event with Derrick Carter and Francois Kevorkian which saw tickets go well in advance of the date for what many was a highlight of the year in Leeds.

For this Easter’s return Soak and The Hacienda have brought one of the world’s leading and most respected DJ’s Erick Morillo to perform a special set at the top of the bill. As a producer on Strictly Rhythm, whose Reel 2 Reel outfit scored numerous worldwide hits in the early Nineties including I Like To Move It, Morillo has also spent the last two decades running Subliminal Records, considered one of the very best house labels in history.

For his DJ performances, Morillo leans on his background, bringing in new and upfront material for tightly constructed sets that have become legendary. His clubs and residencies include his ‘Sessions’ New York weekly and the Miami and Ibiza ‘Subliminal Sessions’ events. Morillo also remains the only US DJ to hold a residency at the Ministry Of Sound so brings a wealth of experience to one of the very best events to be announced so far this year.

Joining him is The Hacienda’s original seminal DJ partnerships who have soundtracked numerous Leeds events over the years including many of the original Soaks, Mike Pickering and Graeme Park. Having played back to back last year for the Hacienda and Soak at Church to rave reviews for their dynamic modern set, the duo revisit Church for an eagerly awaited return.

Having played the original Hacienda, as well as making his name at Back To Basics, Leeds’s own Ralph Lawson is a welcome addition to the bill. Lawson honed his craft weekly at Basics, playing with world class DJs such as Daft Punk, Danny Tenaglia, DJ Harvey, Derrick May amongst others before striking out on his own to become a world famous DJ across the world’s best clubs and as a much admired producer with his own 2020 Recordings imprint.

Soak’s original resident and mainstay Marshall completes the line up for the second Hacienda Soak at Church.
