* 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 **
ANNABEL FRASER [NTS, HIDDEN]
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.
NO MOON [LOBSTER THEREMIN]
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.
SOFIE K [BLOOM]
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!
TOM & SEB [EASTERN BLOC / NTS]
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!
FRANCIS WOOFF [THAT AMAZING THING !]
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.
WHIRLDFUZZ [NTS, SOUP KITCHEN]
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.
