Friday 19th April | Mint Club | Leeds
“A combination of Trap Music and Bass music which is set to be the country’s next trend”. Remember the name Strapt, the brainchild of Mike “Sonar Cousin” Davis who is widely regarded as one of the UK’s best music producers. Alongside the Strapt team, we’re ready to launch the first official Strapt night at Mint Club in Leeds on 19th April 2013, which will be the first of many memorable milestones in years to come.
By definition, Trap music is a hybrid of Southern American Hip-Hop, Electro and Dubstep. The popular Bauuer track “Haarlem Shake” is perhaps the most known commercial example, but with strong underground roots, fans of the single can expect to hear a whole lot more come 19th April at Strapt. The pure energy and excitement that Strapt will be offering fans is unrivalled, so don’t miss out on what promises to be an unforgettable night.

Following the release of Chief Wigz and Sonar Cousin‘s “The Cat Came Back”, we have another video for their single “Suck Sess” featuring West Yorkshire based Matter. Suck Sess is featured on Chief Wigz and Sonar Cousin’s forthcoming mixtape “The Cat Returns” which will be available later this year, and Matter is called upon to provide an excellent verse for the track. Filmed and edited by Major Kuts and The Local Heros, credits also go to the label Dont Talk to Strangers who are the label behind the artists, and the most high profile West Yorkshire label ever.

The West Yorkshire Hip-Hop scene has proved it’s worth in various forms in 2011, and to wrap up what has been an incredible year for the North of England, Chief Wigz has teamed up with Lunar C for their collaborative track “Cat Mafia”. The track has been produced by Sonar Cousin, and was recorded at Sinoptic Studios which is the home for many featured West Yorkshire Hip Hop artists.
