End Of The World Party

After finally getting over the death of BMT in July and with Depthcuts set for extinction mid December we have been wracking our brains trying to think of stuff to keep us occupied, then we thought ‘Shit it’s the end of the world this year, best put a night on’. What better way to see out our last few hours on Earth than one final mash up in one of Manchester’s most intimate venues with some of the cities finest DJs supporting one of the all time greats. This line up in a venue this size is a real treat and gives you the chance to get up close and personal to the acts. Expect the same friendly and enthusiastic vibes you had at BMT and Depthcuts events over the years and allow this new collective to take you on a not to be missed journey through golden era Jungle and ground breaking DnB from the years that defined the genre.

Ed Rush – 96-99 set

There aren’t many artists who can claim to have changed the face of a genre of music, let alone to have changed that face more than once. Ed Rush, however, is an exception to that rule. Ever since his first production outings alongside his neighbour (and infamous owner of No U Turn Records), Nico Sykes, Ed Rush has consistently proven he has the ideas and attitude to transform drum & bass and is never afraid to push that infamous envelope. We have booked Ed Rush for a 96-99 set, something of a rarity these days and in such an intimate venue his set promises to be nothing short of epic, unmissable is an understatement.

Sappo – Jungle Set
advisory/maverick records

Sappo started out in 1993, making tunes that’d end up helping usher in the sound of Jungle as we know it today. With a bulk of his output starting to be released in 1995, one of his largest tunes, and an anthem for years to come (“Ding Dong Bass”) helped solidify his spot within the scene. Building off of that, he started his Advisory Records imprint in 1998, which served as an outlet for his output, as well as cuts from Mutated Forms and remix work from staples like Kenny Ken and many more. He spent four years on BBC 1Xtra with the D&B M1x show, helping bring the only national four-hour Drum & Bass Show to the masses, as well as hosting the Xtra Bass tour shows. One of Manchester’s most educated selectors is booked to play a full on jungle set which is guaranteed not to disappoint.
