York has never had a reputation for being a party town. If you go there in the daytime you will be surrounded by pensioners and tourists looking for a spot to feed the geese, and the city is quiet by 7pm on most evenings. However, tucked away just within the historic city walls lies Bar Lane Studios, where Sam Jefferies divulges his passion as a painter by day and a DJ by night under the guise of Yuri.
His party Rhumboogie has transcended the boundaries between locals and students, bringing together the underground clubbing community of York in the name of charity. Sam is fast establishing a reputation for having a musical knowledge beyond his years and a record collection that could outmatch selectors well into their 30s.
