Snow Soldiers, Farewell to DJ Illas, Release Update, Live Dates

Hey guys,

First of all we'd like to thank all the wonderful people who braved the cold, ice, and snow to make it to our last couple of gigs! It meant the world to us that so many of you turned up to the Hifi Club, Leeds and Bar 1:22, Huddersfield - and, not only did you turn up, you made both evenings absolutely rocking and a brilliant way to finish off the year!

For those of you who have not checked this vid yet or, are newly tuned to Extra Curricular, here's a little bit of what we've been up to this year:


As we close the year we also bid farewell to one of our members as DJ Illas starts a new life in Australia this coming January. Over the past 15 months he has helped us shape our sound, rocked shows with us all over the country, and is featured on our studio tracks (release details soon to come!). We will miss him greatly, not only as a musician, but as a dear friend - we wish him every success in the future and will be, no doubt, hitting him up for some floor space in the coming years!

Check Illas' awesome series of mixes with long-time collaborator DJ Heritage here:

In case you are worried..... we have a new DJ joining the group - all will be revealed in the new year! :)

-----RELEASE NEWS-----

As well as a new member we will also have some lovely, new, shiny releases for you! We've been working so hard to get these recordings absolutely perfect and we now feel they are ready to be set free into the big bad world! More details to come in the new year but it's all gonna kick off with something FREE so make sure you've got your eyes peeled in January!
