256 – Play No Games
Hoping he’ll turn up this time, UKG legend Artful Dodger is set to play 256. A surprisingly good venue and for South Manchester residents it’s super easy to get to.
Joshua Brooks – Let The Freqs Out X LibraryUK X Radian
For those who like it a little bit heavier, check out Joshua Brooks for Livity Sound bass-face inducer Batu and Swamp81 stalwart Chunky who’ll be blasting the dancefloor via the Void sound system.
Joshua Brooks – Neighbourhoods
Fatima & Eglo Live band
After her excellent album was released earlier this year, Fatima is pretty much unmissable, especially with a live band – you can’t beat that for a club night – with her unique blend of electronic, funk and disco beats.
Missing them support one of my personal favourite record labels this summer – Awesome Tapes From Africa – I felt like I’d missed out massively so this time around if you like your music all things African, get on down!
Roadhouse – Hairbrain
Optimo (4 hour set)
The ridiculously talented Scottish crate-diggers JD Twitch and Johnnie Wilkes serve up a lesson in all things techno, electronic, rock and everything between. I saw them at Dekmantel and was blown away. Not to be missed, they are playing a mammoth 4 hour set.
