History

Oporto was founded by myself back in the mists of time. I had one clear aim, to create a bar in Leeds that i wanted to drink and hang-out in, luckily others wanted to do the same, this principle still stands for me and the Oporto team. I hope you enjoy the unique space we have created, I also hope you enjoy the great drinks and crackin’ tunes that make Oporto one hell of a night out!!!!!””

We Were Frontiers

Relatively new to the Leeds music scene We Were Frontiers have already made a notable impact. Their exhilarating and multi-instrumental live show has won the band a strong live following which they hope to capitalise on with their upcoming appearances at this years Leeds and Reading festival.

Musically the band make several nods to the music of Ennio Morricone which they fuse with intricate guitar lines and rich vocal harmonies to create their own unique brand of guitar pop.

Having recorded and independently released three singles earlier this year the band are now set to begin recording their debut album in late September.

The Voyeurist
http://thevoyeuristmusic.tumblr.com/
Singer and lyricist Sarah Nagshineh and guitarist Richard ‘Rusty’ Ruston bonded over a shared and diverse love of hard-hitting tracks, and the mutual desire to create an innovative and multifaceted live and recorded sound. Their debut ‘mini album’ tells tales from the city; highly charged laments and melancholic yet buoyant odes inspired by the manifold metropolis after dark.

Fusing a ruminative, industrially-charged sound with pop hooks and melodic refrains, The Voyeurist champion a vein of dark disco. Combining guitar-weighted urban verve with an edge of electronica, skilfully violent guitar-handling is offset by haunting vocals and provocative lyrics; their emotionally-charged soundscape moving from dance-heavy to ambient.

This year has seen The Voyeurist play consecutively sold out gigs across London in anticipation of their debut EP release, including shows as lead support for Grimes, The Ting Tings, I Blame Coco and Light Asylum. They also headlined Club NME in Berlin, Roundhouse’s Emerging Artist Festival (featuring on the Roundhouse’s 20/20 compilation release) and Underage Festival to packed out crowds. Whilst only a year young they're gained airtime and accolade on BBC 6 Music, XFM and Amazing Radio and cultivated an impressive roll-call of collaborative production credits including official remixes for Patrick Wolf, Visions of Trees, MEN (JD Sampson), Worship and more.

La Machine
http://www.facebook.com/lamachinemusic
Intentionally loud & unapologetically confrontational, La Machine are hard to ignore. Blending industrial rock with elements of electronica and a distinctly punk ethos they create music which is as much abrasive as it is hypnotic.

Like influences Nine Inch Nails & contemporaries Death Grips this is not pop, but all the better for it.

The Horn The Hunt
https://www.facebook.com/thehornthehunt
With both electronic and rock influences, The Horn The Hunt defy straight-forward classification and prefer to call themselves a 'pop band' in reference to their desire to connect with people through story-telling and theatricality. "Like the precise samples they deploy, each member of The Horn The Hunt fits together like parts of a machine, both relying on each other symbiotically to enhance the aesthetic of the other." - Drowned in Sound

Suzy Blu
http://deadpennyrecords.tumblr.com/suzyblu
Armed with just an 80’s drum machine and keyboard, Suzy Blu (Insect Guide/Vacant Kiss) has a brand new sound and lots of songs to add to her ever amazing catalogue of dark-pop hits!

+ DJs & good vibes!

A night of pulsating beats, hypnotic vocals & dark tinged pop to keep you sane over the Summer.
