Region2 was founded in 2006 by DJs Gazzmann & Dave Oliver with an ethos to bring a quality DIY Underground House night to York to support the much undervalued scene. Running in the small first floor room at Dusk for several years Region2 brought many varied and up and coming DJs to York. Pulling off some cracking nights and receiving much acclaim over the years, including regularly appearing in all the main Dance Music Magazines as one of the best small nights in the North. iDJ Magazine said Region2 was “the freshest night on the York scene” while Mixmag declared that “this is a proper DIY night that has a great vibe…”
In 2012 Region2 relaunched as part of Mansion Underground until a change of management and thus followed a brief hiatus. That was till the end of the year when they returned to their roots of providing a cool laid back vibe to go with an equally cool and trendy new bar, that being Sotano, one time basement of Kennedy’s.
Now Gazzmann & Dave Oliver are taking you deep deep down to the only place to be seen in York, proving that the underground never dies. An intimate atmosphere, groovy deep house, funky tech and the very best of the underground in the underground, all fuelled by the finest spirits, cocktails, wines and craft beers every First Friday of the Month.
