Almost 4 years to the day Partisan first teamed up with Half Edge and Bruce to bring you an amazing night of dance and community vibes.
We’re super excited to be welcome this party to our new space at Islington Mill.
When – 11th February – 11pm-6am
Where – Partisan, Islington Mill, 1 James Street, M3 5HW
🚨Line up – Bruce B2B Mike Smaczylo all night long
From Mike – founder of Half Edge ❤
Half Edge began as an idea while I was studying in New York and missing Manchester a lot. It’s named after Half Edge Lane, the road in Eccles where I grew up, and the idea was that it would always be a Manchester party, a place to book my friends, and a home to return to from wherever I might end up.
Bruce was already my favourite producer and DJ when we met at one of his gigs in NY. So when it came time for me to move home and I started making plans to set up Half Edge, I asked if he’d be my first guest.
It’s been five years since that first party now, at The Peer Hat. Then we played all night together in Partisan’s old Cheetham Hill venue. Still one of my favourite parties ever.
If you’ve spent any time around the Mutualism crew you might have been asked who your Gary Oak is. The DJ rival who does what you do, always one step ahead. Jury’s still out on who mine might be, but in that framework Bruce is my Professor Oak. An unparalleled inspiration, a mentor when I needed it, and a great friend always.
I’m incredibly excited to see how this plays out. I couldn’t imagine a better way to celebrate the 5 year anniversary and my birthday, than partying together in the new Partisan, which was so formative from the beginning. Stoked doesn’t cover it.
The venue is wheelchair accessible and has a disable toilet.
