It’s the first weekend in December, the start of the festive period and theres some extra special shindigs going down.
1. Hi Ku 2nd Birthday
I’ll be honest, this isn’t a night I knew too much about but the lineup is a real eye catcher. With Luke Vibert on headline duties it promises to be a naughty tear up. Always on any good promoters radar and with releases on Aphex Twin’s Rephlex Records as well as Ninja Tune and Planet Mu, Luke Vibert’s style range from chilled out hip hop to mash up jungle, incorporating techno, acid house and disco along the way. It’s guaranteed to be top class music throughout, with additional acts Funkineven and Romare set to join the party it looks like the place to be on Saturday. This is all going down at 1 Primrose Street in Ancoats over 2 floors and is definitely worth checking out.
Will Not Be Televised Present MOP
Not technically a club night but whatever. If getting sweaty and jumping around to hardcore rap is your thing then Sound Control have got a treat for you this Friday. Known mostly for their hit singles Cold As Ice and hip hop classic Ante Up the Mash Out Posse (MOP) are true legends of the genre and this rare visit to Manchester looks set to be a special one. With support from the Manchester based Mouse Outfit what better way to start your weekend? Doors 8-11 so plenty of time to party after.
Mr Scruff Keep It Unreal
Greeted by nothing but smiles expect one of the best atmospheres you will ever witness at a club night. No attitudes no egos no questions asked as Mr Scruff takes to the decks yet again for another five and a half hour set touching on funk, soul, reggae, hip hop and disco to name a few genres. An anything goes party that Manchester can be proud of, this will be as busy as ever at Band On The Wall on Saturday night.
Dubstep Grime garage beats and bass is what’s going on at The Roadhouse friday night as BPM host Kinzy, Monkey Wrench and Stanza aka True Tiger. As well as residents including Madam X and Darka it looks set to be a very VERY sweaty affair. Get down early for guaranteed entry on the night.
Lowdown & Dirty
The first official Christmas party of the season is going down at Sound Control on Saturday night as Lowdown & Dirty get the crackers out for The Stanton Warriors and Bocuma. One of the few nights in Manchester based around Breakbeat, the night is usually packed out with some of the most enthusiastic crowds arounds. Early attendance or advance tickets are advised.
