In hype of the mega Chibuku 10 year birthday bonanza this coming Friday, Leo Belchetz, one of Chibuku’s own resident DJs and all-round house music guru has presented us with a very special mix. As if holding a sonic seminar on the history of Chibuku, the mix guides us through the kind of silky sounds and grinding beats that have come to represent the hugely successful clubnight over the past decade.
As the man like Belchetz says himself: "Chibuku actually started as an underground house night, providing an alternative to the big room trance and funky house that dominated Liverpool at the time, and it’s that aspect of the night I wanted to reflect. So I put together the mix using only tracks by my personal favourite DJs and artists who have appeared at Chibuku over the years."
