FutureEverything’s Friday night party is hosted by a bloc of Manchester’s forward and outward looking music promoters; Fiktion, P13, High Bank and Annex Agency.
Hotly-tipped new producer/DJs, Nidia Minaj and Nkisi, showcase respective solo sets alongside a slot by revered sound designer and selector, Errorsmith, and support from some of the city’s most crucial resident DJs – Croww, Acre, and Crono Hotmas.
Bordeaux-based Nidia Minaj plays a key role in Lisbon’s world renowned Afro-Portuguese dance scene hingeing around the Príncipe label which released her debut 12″ Danger to praise from all corners in summer 2015. Nidia’s take on the kuduro, batida and tarraxhina sounds shares a rude, playful intensity with the UK’s own grime and house scene, so expect to sweat.
Nkisi is a member of London’s Endless crew and co-founder of NON, a collective of African artists and diaspora who aim to use sound as their primary means to oppose contemporary canons. Her sets uniquely weave Congolese rhythms with a palette of mutant electronic and new, hardcore sounds.
Errorsmith is an innovative producer and connoisseur of rhythms who’s probably best known for his collaborations like the classic disco cut-ups with MMM and Smith N Hack or last year’s Protogravity EP with Mark Fell. As a DJ he juggles up-to-the-second Jamaican music with Chicago house, outernational and UK bass trax.
Residents will complement the guests with a Manchester flex repping the city’s discerning and upfront club sounds – Crono Hotmas, Acre & Croww.
Purveyor of the Death of Rave and Boomkat Editions label, Crono Hotmas’ selections have drawn attention from all corners with his revered sets touching everywhere from house, techno and UK funky to hardcore, Belgian new beat and speed core. Your favourite dj’s favourite dj.
Following Acre’s destructive debut EP, the Manchester upstart has moved from strength to strength, with a split release with Filter Dread on PAN x CODES and his debut album ‘Better Stangers’ on Tectonic both dropping in 2015, receiving widespread acclaim.
Exploring sounds from all over the globe, Croww is the third of our Manchester cohort. Founder of Mcr based club night High Bank, 2016 will see the release of his debut EP. Expect a freeform set blending broken rave, rap, metal and hybrid fwd club sounds.
