Throwback event: Bohemian Grove presents Trus’Me and Space Afrika

Bohemian Grove are a much loved mainstay in Manchester’s underground scene. The heads most certainly turn out for what are always stellar bookings but[and] the vibe is downright charming from start to finish.

Nextup: FJAAK – Gewerbe 15/Rush

It has been a glorious week, new releases from the likes of Gary Beck, Nicolas Massayeff and even a remix from the legend himself Robert Hood, have literally been music to my ears over the past few days.

Londoner Capracara enlists assistance from across the Atlantic in the form of James T. Cotton aka Tadd Mullinix for his latest EP. Both artists are devoted to things a bit squelchy, 303 and jack orientated so no surprise the result goes a bit acieeeed. What is a surprise is just how flagrantly it sets out […]

Throwback: Surgeon – Atol

Later this month, Anthony Childs, a.k.a Surgeon will grace the city of Manchester with his presence. Bringing a plethora of stomping techno records straight out of the darkest corners and most unexplored spaces of the Berghain, he’ll be smiling away as he delivers yet another one of his uniquely unrelenting, but appealing sets. Surgeon’s upcoming appearance […]
