⇧ A GUY CALLED GERALD [2 HR LIVE]
(( Sugoi Records / Pro Tech Shon / Rham! / Warlock / Columbia Records / CBS Records / Juice Box / Retroactive Records / !K7 Records / Sender Records / BeatStreet / Laboratory Instinct Records & Bookings / Perlon / Bosconi Records ))
Well, what can we say really? Gerald is an innovator. An originator. From raw electro funk to the washed out bliss of ‘Pacific State’, from the rugged and tribal sounds of ‘Groove of the Ghetto’ to the no nonsense jackin’ of ‘Blow Your House Down’, A Guy Called Gerald has been a driving force in dance music for over 25 years. In his 20s, Gerald was already making tunes with artists like Derrick May and co-founded 808 State, producing music that would go on to influence generations of artists all over the world. He has been described as a ‘self written bible of dance music’, collaborating with seminal artists like Frankie Knuckles and Herbie Hancock and releasing notable remixes of The Stone Roses, David Bowie and others. Taking influences from the sounds of New York, Detroit, Berlin and his hometown of Manchester, from ‘Voodoo Ray’ to ‘How Long is Now’, Gerald has been forever relevant, forever forward-thinking; his art forever evolving, forever musical. We are beyond buzzin’ to bring him into a city centre warehouse space for a two hour live session improvising his unique sound alongside some of our favourite acts from Sheffeel and beyond. This is going to be special…

⇧ MISTABISHI &KORG ELECTRIBE [LIVE]
(( Hospital Records / VIRUS Records / Noh / Infectious Records ))
Coming up from London to show us some real old skool electronic musicianship it's the man like Mistabishi. Honing his craft in squat parties on the Korg EMX and with notable releases on Hospital records & others, "This is real party music, for people who like their parties loud, screwfaced and completely free of official meddling"... expect a honking bass assault!!
⇧ DR CRYPTIC B2B PHATWORLD
(( Chip Butty Records // Off Me Nut Records ))
These lot have been murkin it left right and centre for the last few years, pushing and redefining the sound of Sheffield bass music in the process. Celebrate two of Sheff's primary independent labels with a gully bassline session!
▸ Dr Cryptic
⇧ DJ PIPES
(( Kabal Backstreet Bashment // UK Mondo Radio ))
Holding it down as Kabal's resident DJ and playing host to some of the most vibrant parties in these seven hills, it's only right that we invite Pipes down to celebrate with us. Warming things up for us before the headliners with eclectic groovers and bangers straight from the heart and down to ya marrow bone ;)..
⇧ ISIS MORAY [LIVE]
We describe Isis Moray's live performance as "A mesmerising live set which utilises various hardware boxes from vocal processors to drum machines and samplers to create a deep soundscape, progressing through washed out ambience to more rugged and squelchy techno." Her performance at Golden Harvest earlier in the year was a real highlight for us and we're delighted to bring her unique sound into a warehouse venue.
