Werkha (LIVE) (Tru Thoughts)
Ahead of his new album, Werkha presents a club focused live set featuring added percussion and MC; taking in transatlantic jazz and soul, diasporic West African percussion, trembling Chinese guzhengs, rolling Lancashire hillsides and vibrating urban tenements. This one’s not to be missed!
Check out a recent live session at Old Granada Studios here –

Contours (Rhythm Section)
Contours’ sound explores the spaces, rhythms and textures that sit between House, Jazz, Afro-Beat, Electronica and Hip Hop. With a string of dance floor focused releases under the Rhythm Section label, expect an set lathered with infectious beats.

Hot Diamond Aces
Sheffield based 7 piece, Hot Diamond Aces are the ultimate party band. Blending Funk / Afrobeat / Jazz / Fusion to combine infectious rhythms with a raw brass sound, they guarantee to get the party started!

Skinny Pelembe (Future Bubblers)
Having recently been taken under Gilles Peterson’s wing as a ‘Future Bubbler’, we had to get Skinny Pelembe and his band involved in this one! Expect Afro Psychedelic Soul for surfers and urban explorers alike, from the South African born, UK exiled beatmaker / guitarist.

Danuka (So Flute)
Co-founder and resident of the vibrant night, So Flute in Manchester – Danuka’s music policy is fiercely focused on the groove and on the soul – whether that’s hip hop, afrobeat, jazz or funk is irrelevant when the party is the main concern.
