Who's Going to This?

Lineup and Details for Vocal @ Mint


When vocal was created it all started with a list of DJs some from old and some more recent, but all in all they were our favorite DJs and friends from over the years and we just wanted to put them all together to play for us.

Leeds has always been at the cutting edge when it came to music, club nights and after parties and we wanted to capture the best of all those years and recreate the nights you never wanted to end, when you could walk into a club and everybody knew each other, the nights when it was all about the music, the people and having the best night of your life!

One by one we selected each DJ from our list to form a massive line up of Leeds legends to play at our parties, and by our last event in June our list was nearly completed…..NEARLY!!!

It left one DJ, a person that we have all listened to most of our clubbing lives and have way to many great memories to mention, a person involved in one of the most iconic club events ever to hit Leeds, a person who was everybody friend and we didn't hesitate to ask him to come out of retirement to play to all his fans one last time........... a man most call 'DEANO'

So for our next instalment we are proud to announce Vocal Presents… back2mine and the one and only Mr Dean Smahon!!

Surrounded by a lineup of people that have once upon a time played for the iconic back2mine this is one night not to be missed, Deano will be play a massive back2mine set (VOCAL STYLE)

Completing the epic line up with Dean on the night will be…

Rob Tissera

Tony Walker

Mark Wilson

Marc Dennis


There is no doubt that this event will sell out!!!

Dean Smahon

Dean has played in and around the Leeds club scene since 1997 with residencies such at Glasshouse, Baby Cream, Habit & Off The Wall Events his never ending energy to 'always improve from the last one' and determination has given him the dividends of being a well respected DJ amongst his peers Over the years he has gained a lot of experience having done two full seasons in Ibiza his knowledge of music and the dance scene makes him a force to be reckoned with having played to crowds of 5000+ in clubs such as Amnesia (Cream) El Divino, Eden residencies at Kanya, Plastic and a live weekly radio show on Ibiza FM has led him to play amongst some of the worlds celebrated DJ's Shape Shifters, Seb Fontaine, Annie Mac, NYMC Project, Jon Carter, Yousef, Tim Sherridan to name but a few and even recently Zurich Switzerland. Drawing on this experience he came up with the idea of an all day event especially for those clubbers who just do not know when to stop! Eventually, after testing several venues (4 years of testing) Back2Mine found it's home at Stinkys Peephouse. The loyal followers and new members made Back2Mine arguably the best all day event in Yorkshire with its no prejudice of gender or creed attitude the loyal followers and new members made Back2Mine arguably the best all day event in Yorkshire. In May 2012 B2M relocated to expand its potfolio to the all new refurbished superclub The Mint Warehouse where the outdoor terrace serves its ethos of day clubbing outdoors!! Covering a wide spectrum genre of music with the latest Funky/Electro/Deep Tech and Club Classics.... Back2Mine was not to be missed.

Tony Walker

In the 2 decades that have passed since Tony Walker discovered dance music and spent his entire student grant on decks, his illustrious DJ career has spanned five continents and seen him work alongside some of the worlds most revered DJs, producers and promoters. Since his first ever gig (after a Carl Cox main set at a Leeds rave no less) the self-confessed vinyl obsessive has maintained a permanent presence on the northern dance scene making his name synonymous with house music and club culture Walthamstow born but with an affinity for the home of all soulful music, also known as the North West. Tony has made Leeds his home since his Uni days in the early 90s. First residing at the Gallery in Leeds alongside pop dance act Utah saints in 1992 (and touring the US with Tim Utah), Tony went on to create Happy a weekly house night at the once infamous home of Back to Basics; The Music Factory in Leeds. The night soon became notorious in the north and eventually nationally winning the prestigious accolade of best UK midweek dance night from DJ magazine. Then came Love to Be (voted club of the year in 1995). Immediately a phenomenal success, this promoter/ DJ role lead Tony to further work with clubs such as Gatecrasher and eventually his own radio show with American icon DJ Disciple. The Transatlantic mix was soon nationally networked on Kiss / Galaxy and the direct American influence set a welcome precedent in the field. The show was truly irresistible as it showcased the most upfront tracks from both sides of the pond often months before national releases were made and attracted interviews and acclaim from international players such as Armand van Helden, Roger Sanchez, Dj Sneak, Eric Morillo, Mousse T, David Morales. An underground, grass roots show but with all the benefits of commercial radio commented Mixmag. Indeed the show was such a success it was later translated into global syndication and a sell-out tour with dates as far and wide as Australia and the US. With his status well and truly elevated into that of superstar DJ, Tony became a regular spinner at some of the best clubs around the globe including: Ministry of Sound, Gatecrasher, Pacha (Ibiza), Centro Fly (NYC), Speed Queen, Passion, Déjà vu, Federation, Sugar (Singapore), Salt (Australia), Stark (Dallas). Since the turn of the millennium due to the success of his radio show on Kiss Fm and Galaxy he went on to be listed no 22 in DJ magazines top 100 DJs public poll. Despite this accolade Tony’s talents are by no means restricted to DJing. Extensive Knowledge of the intricacies of the industry has been gathered writing freelance for Muzik, Ministry and DJ magazines as well as managing both Urban Rhythm and Eastern Bloc record shops, producing his own tracks (recorded as Trimtone, One Foot in the Groove, Main Connection, Soul Friction and the Barkin Brothers), managing his own labels (Love to be... heard,Trimtone recordings, One foot in the Groove records, Peak time players and Route 1) and co ordinating his Love to be brand. Today Tony can be found at Leeds based club of the year (as voted by Mixmag) Federation as well as playing a prestigious selection of UK and European venues with Love to be... During the week he is kept busy as managing director of Love to be... as well as being Chief of Operations from Premier Entertainment Yorkshire LLP which owns the Ivory bar and clubs brand.
