Zed Bias' Last Ever Interview in Leeds

Champion up North caught up with Zed Bias, the garage and broken beat hero, just after his last ever set in Leeds at Detonate. He discussed his 20 years of making music, his inspirations as he started out and predictions for new music in the future.


Preditah Interview || Detonate

Champion Up North went to Detonate at Canal Mills in October and caught up with Preditah one of the most recognisable names in the Grime scene. From touring with the legendary Skepta, to producing none stop bangers for his solo career.

Next week we'll be interviewing Swamp 81 representative Benton and hear about what he has in store for us in 2015.


Iration Steppas Interview || The Base Leeds

Champion Up North TV caught up with the legendary Iration Steppas at our studio in Leeds. From bringing you the worlds top heavyweight sound systems, to spinning dubplates ‘in a year 3000 style’, the Iration Steppas are recognised worldwide for a good reason. Here is what happened!


Mele Interview || Detonate 2014

Champion Up North went to Detonate at Canal Mills in October and caught up with Mele, one of a select few that knows how to deliver a true club atmosphere. The northern DJ and producer combined his dynamic mixing techniques, a unique track selection, and his own crazy energy and destroyed Canal Mills at Detonate in October.

Talking us through his plans for 2015, the launch of his label Quadrants, artists such as Callahan and Mak & Pasteman, and how he “blagged it” in London, Mele is as flowing and energetic in conversation as he is on the decks. If you’re new to producing and want to know how he crept on to the scene, his story of how he progressed as an artist and managed to build a name for himself in the digital world, is essential viewing.

Next week’s video will see Champion sitting down with club legend Preditah.
