We will be launching a brand new clothing range, you've seen the 80+ designs for the hoodies and Habit will also be releasing t-shirts, vests, shorts, towels, sunglasses and many many more items to keep you looking fresh during summer! The iPhone App in association with Turbo is being developed as we speak which will feature all the latest mixes to keep you grooving on the move as well as pictures from each week of Habit plus interviews with all the residents and guests.
There are also some big big parties lined up over the coming months! This includes the Habit mansion party, terrace parties and a monthly residency at Castleford's Xscape on the last Friday of each and every month. A huge A-Level Results Party is also in the works plus Micky Slim and last but by no means least DJ Zinc booked for October!!
Hope the new mix keeps you bouncing as we warm up for the best summer yet for Habit!HABIT 5th Birthday Mix, Part One - Daniel John

BANK HOLIDAY THURSDAY 21st APRIL, 10pm - 8am @ THE SPACE (No work next day!!)
In 2006 business partners Alex Simmons & Daniel John Aka Danny Bond had a vision that Leeds was missing a vital part of the clubbing jigsaw. After throwing around various ideas they decided Leeds needed a Thursday night event that was "by the people for the people", resulting in the birth of Habit.
It was one of the first events to embrace the electro sound that was set to take the nation by storm, electro was still sexy, still vocal but with a dirty twist that rippled through your body and twisted your mind, body and soul. Habit’s music policy was and still is the same, playing tracks with no snobbery and welcomed anyone with a positive attitude and love for good music!
Habit now approaches it’s 5th birthday with an illustrious clubbing CV of touring various venues across the North with the highlights including supporting Deadmau5 & Swedish House Mafia as well as 52 weeks a year residency at our native home ‘The Space’. We now invite you to our 5th Birthday celebrations that will be held at our native home . These parties will feature all the DJs and performers who have played a key role in making Habit what it is today,thank you for all your support over the years we wouldn't be here without you.
On the 21st April HABIT reaches the 5 year milestone! To help us celebrate and party hard will be a selection of the Dj's that have played a part over the past fives years in defining and making HABIT what it is! The infamous HABIT pyjama party also makes a welcome return for an all night sleepover, we will be open from 10pm all the way through to 8am! Get your thinking caps on as the best PJ outfit wins a free bottle of champagne!

A weekly mix straight from the dancefloor of the UK's original electro house event. HABIT
Habit launched in Leeds in April 2006 when the Uk dancefloors were rocking to fluffy house Hed Kandi style... Alex and partner Daniel John were feeling another sound... still sexy, still vocal but with a dirty sound that rippled through your body and twisted your mind, body and soul!!! This sound was ELECTRO... Habit was the first weekly Electro event definatley in the North maybe in the world who knows... who cares... what we know is even though the clubbing world has jumped on the bandwagon Habit remains true to its customers, true to the sound and at the forefront of Electronic House music... HABIT is for all addicted to House Music... Everyone Equal Everyone Welcome...
