In July 2018, original 1980s UK salsa pioneer and long time vinyl DJ Lubi Jovanovic (Calle Ocho Leeds) launched MANTECA Salsa Vinyl Party at The Wardrobe Leeds with London salsa records don Erick Joel Lopez and dance teacher Gormack Dione. It was a big success so here comes Manteca Pt2 this autumn. Once again at The Wardrobe Leeds and hosted by DJ Lubi with a salsa dance class again with international dance teacher Gormack Dione. This time, there are TWO guest DJs.
Angus Peters runs all things salsa in the south west region of England under his Abanico Salsa brand – salsa dance classes and parties in Exeter, Bristol and Weston Super-Mare (the south west’s biggest party Salsa On The Pier). He is a DJ, dance teacher and promoter with over 20 years salsa business experience but he is also a long time music lover and record collector, including salsa and Latin music. He runs his quarterly salsa/mambo vinyl party Saturday Shingaling in Bristol and has guested at London’s I Like It Like That and Salsa Rocks Grande Leeds. He’s played at Calle Ocho Leeds previously and the Leeds La Maxima 79 show this year but they were laptop sets. Great to have him back in Leeds playing salsa records.
Mark Johnson has been involved in the Leeds salsa scene for the better part of 7 years as a salsa dance teacher, event promoter and DJ via his Salsa Rocks brand. Every Wednesday he co-runs their weekly classes and social but 4-5 times a year he hosts his Salsa Rocks Grande parties which are 100% vinyl. Over the last few years he’s invited the best salsa vinyl DJs from across the UK and mainland Europe to guest at his session. Great to have him onboard for this party.
