It's 2018 and we're starting how we mean to go on in Manchester...
Not only is our next party at our favourite venue in the city, The White Hotel, but we’ve got one of our favourite artists and one of bass music's most mysterious figures flying over from Berlin for a very special live set.
If you’ve seen Shackleton before, you know what to expect. If you’ve been to The White Hotel before, you know what to expect. If you’ve been to a Loose Lips Party before, you know what to expect. Put all three together though and ya gunna have Kim and Aggy cleaning the gaff for weeks after.
Blueprint Records/Loose Lips resident Rommek also joins us, alongside Sheffield’s up and coming bass trio Denham Audio and the incredible improvised string experiments of WSR. More residential support comes from none other than head honcho Medallion Man & Manchester resident Paxman. Full power hours, till they lock it off in the early ones.
Pricing: £10, £14 & £18
Time: 23:00 - 06.00
- Shackleton - Live (Woe To A Septic Heart)
Electronic music producer, co-founder of Skull Disco and founder of Woe To The Septic Heart!
- WSR (Contort)
WSR first released on Contort Records and showcased on the main stage at the 2015 edition of Berlin Atonal festival.
He operates in the limbo between acoustic and synthetic music, humanising electronic sources while mutating sounds taken from real instruments and environments, experimenting with the possibilities given by self-built string instruments and their sonic physicality.
- Rommek (Blueprint/Loose Lips)
If you know about Blueprint Records, you know this is the man to watch. As a recent emerging artist, Rommek has shown promising developments in his own sound, as well as carving his way into the current techno scene. His extensive interest in sound design is embedded within the atmospheric, dynamic and textured tracks he produces. More exciting material coming on Blueprint very soon...
- Conor Thomas (The Death Of Rave/Fiktion/Boomkat)
Conor runs The Death of Rave and Reel Torque labels, co-runs Boomkat Editions, as well as spinning records all over - including on NTS. He's also a personal favourite DJ of Shackleton's. Expect unique selections tending towards the grimmer and darker ends of modern electronic music's fringes. He promotes Faktion/Fiktion sessions, had trials at Hartlepool FC, and was former 'Sea Cadet Of The Year’ 1998/1999/2001...
- Denham Audio (Art Aud)
D.A have had releases on Addison Groove's Groove Label as well as UK Techno producer Ejeca's imprint and have remixed and worked with a tonne of the most exciting undergroud bass acts in the scene. Their sound is best described as a mix of Jungle breaks, rave pads and heavy UK Bass.
- Paxman B2B Medallion Man (Loose Lips)
