Hideouscast #09 is from 3am Recordings founder Al Bradley.

Originally from Manchester, Al has been a prominent DJ on the Leeds scene for several years, and has showcased music from a range of producers through his 3am label since 2003. Truly dedicated to his craft, Al will often play marathon sets in local venues, as well as gigs in a truly broad range of places – from Fabric to the function room above Willy’s Pub and Brewery in Cleethorpes.

I interviewed Al a couple of years ago (or maybe longer, Covid has distorted time) for the (rather neglected) DIY Leeds and the piece is here

On Saturday 4th September, myself (Roya Brehl) and Al will be playing at Distrikt for what we’ve billed as 3am vs Hideous Things.

To promote the party, I asked Al if he’d like to be put next guest for our mix series and he had the idea of recording a mix comprised of music made by Leeds-based artists. The result is a really beautiful mix that spans seamlessly through a plethora of sounds. As well as being a great listen, it also highlights what a wonderful hub of creativity we have in our city.

Amongst many others, Al’s mix features ‘House For A Mouse’ by Pete Melba, who recorded our second Hideouscast mix. The track is from the debut EP, Plastic Goose on his label Planet Orange Records.
