CCL b2b LOFT – Partisan’s Queer Dubstep Special !

3rd May 2019 @ 11:59 pm - 6:00 am

£5.00 – £7.00
Partisan presents to you two international titans of incredible dancefloor music, coming together for a big, queer, dubstep special!! [Plus two secret special guests!! 😮]
One of FACT Magazine‘s top 10 favourite mixes of 2018 was CCL‘s phenomenal ‘Ode to the Queer Steppas’ mix, just over one hour of the most beautiful and supremely put together dubstep and dubstep-oriented sounds, inspired by experiences of euphoric queer parties. We recently learnt that our crush on CCL was mutual 💞 and so we have the pleasure of bringing the amazing Seattle DJ to Partisan for this mega fundraiser party!! https://soundcloud.com/honeysoundsystem/hnypot-289-ccls-ode-to-the-queer-steppas
LOFT is no stranger to lighting up the Partisan dancefloor after her unstoppable tour de force on NYE 😍 💣 The Manchester-based DJ and producer is well known for her utterly unique boiler room set with her characteristic vivaciousness on-the-mic, and her incredibly technical and heart-grabbing productions on highly-rated labels like The Astral Plane and Wisdom Teeth, as well as her own bandcamp page with her year-defining ‘thank u, next’ salford girls’ club edit. LOFT is ready to release her vault of dubstep bangers acquired in the burgeoning days of internet culture on now legendary, shut-down underground music forums, for us all to get loose to https://ellohefftea.bandcamp.com/track/thank-u-next-salford-girls-club-flip
CCL & LOFT will be playing a mixture of b2b and solo sets, with our secret special guests sprinkling in throughout xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
+ THE RETURN OF THE Microdosing [NTS Radio] chill-out room upstairs – a tailor-made bay of ambience & relaxation for tired legs and active minds to sprawl out together. More info TBA….
Get ready, cos this one will be very, very, special 🦄

Further information on their progress can be found on their website, and is updated regularly: www.partisancollective.net/accessibility/

Partisan is located across 2 floors of a 3-story building. The basement has 11 steps from street level, without a handrail. The first floor has 22 steps from street level, with a handrail. There are 40 steps between the two floors. All toilets are gender-neutral and are located on both levels of the venue. On the first floor, these are single contained stalls. In the basement, there are stalls and urinals.
Seating is available on each floor at all events. For performances, a seated viewing area will be available.
Assistance dogs are allowed at all times. Other well behaved dogs are usually welcome, with the exception of in performance rooms of loud music events. If you have a dog allergy/phobia let us know – we’ll do what we can.
For ticketed events, paying disabled people are eligible to a free additional ticket for a PA to accompany them.
Partisan aims to be a safer space. As such, harmful and discriminatory behaviour is not tolerated. As a cooperative, Partisan is democratically owned by its members, and is shaped by everybody through what we say and what we do. If you are challenged or feel threatened, speak to someone wearing a Partisan badge; they are there to help.
A quiet room is available on the first floor at this event for those wanting to take a break for a while.
