* Community Record Stall Pop Up*
Hosted by Mcr’s underground music heavyweight Irfan Rainy – Community Record store pop-up ensures the city’s musical heritage is reintegrated to the right people at the right prices. Don’t be surprised to find obscure Brazilian LPs, under-the-radar Detroit 12”s or the much coveted Rainy City EPs at confusing prices. Come engage in some of the best used music our city has to offer!

** All profits fundraise for Partisan’s accessibility and full license **
A lover of music not genres – Annabel carries the torch as one of the city’s most respected and well-loved DJs. Shifting effortlessly from obscure post-punk, to Chicago house, to your favourite disco tracks in a blink of an eye, the NTS mainstay ensures all bases are covered for a locked-in dance floor.

Cometh the hour, cometh the wormhole. Lobster Theremin alumni No Moon engages the cerebral cortex in a tight grip of free-float melodies and subtle acid licks to keep synapses ticking nicely. Leading the way the right side of the ‘lo-fi’ revolution, we’re exciting to see what this elusive entity has to offer.

Rapidly raising through the ranks of one of the most interesting selectors and go-to promoters the city has to offer, B.L.O.O.M don Sofie K keeps the ‘floor engaged through a heartfelt pick of the best disco, boogie, funk, soul and world music you know and wish you knew!

Springboxin’ off the back of shutdown sets at Moovin festival and Ibiza’s DC10, Tom & Seb’s deft selection of emo-house bangers and tech-house rollers ensure to keep the dancefloor lubricated whilst tuggin on the heartstrings – not 2 be missed!

Part of our Musical Heritage, That Amazing Thing ! resident Francis Wooff kept the city’s hedonistic juices flowing since before most of us were out of secondary school. Alas, submit yourself to a master at work, a true professional in the art of P.A.R.T.Y

A craftsman in the art of house, Mouridis is a name for those in the know. Subtly ploughing his trade in some of the cities most underground and well loved parties, our much-loved and respected DJ maintains a second to none selection of some of the best underground house music going.

Easily one of the most interesting and engaging shows on NTS Manchester – the Whirldfuzz ladies put in more research than the average PhD student and continually turn out one of the broadest and most cohesive selections of outer-national music around. Expect everything from Zouk, to Soukous to Afrobeat to whacked-out Pysch and everything in between.
