Mama Racho Takeover – a Partisan Fundraiser!

On Friday 1st March, we’re thrilled to be handing out basement over to one of the most exciting bands in our city right now.

Having formed just over a year ago, the Mama Racho are an enigmatic quintet. Originating from the city’s squat party scene, they first played at Partisan at RITE last year when they brought the house down. Since then their rise has been quick – and recently headlined MCR Live Free Vibes weekender in early Jan. And no wonder – with a sound that blends cumbia rhythms with psychedelic electronica, they a real special group.

After the band, the party will continue, with a showcase of the Mama Racho Soundsystem. This is not one to miss!

Mama Racho Soundsystem are:

Joaquín Cornejo
Hailing from Quito, Ecuador, Joaquin’s productions have been becoming increasingly noticed both in Manchester and abroad. Playing a deep selection of Andes-step, he’s guaranteed to put you in a trance. https://soundcloud.com/joaquincb

Mola Mola
A recently formed production/DJ duo whose sets are a smorgasbord of sound. Expect afro-disco, deep funk, oddball electro and post punk. Check out their wicked downtempo dubby collab with Joaquin https://soundcloud.com/canal-dub/joaquin-cornejo-laughter-of-the-sea

Producer Hermanito will be selecting everything from disco, soul and funk to Brazilian rarities and global electronic music. Their remix of Joaquin is proper broken beat electro vibes! https://soundcloud.com/konnrecordings/06-joaquin-cornejo-morning-eyes-hermanito-remixwav

All profits go to help Partisan continue to give free space to social justice organisations and make their building wheelchair accessible!
