— LINE UP
TOM BOOGIZM [NTS, PARIAHS]
Either through his regular NTS show 'Robbin Lobsters From Mobsters', legendary Pariahs party with Jon K or his own Boogizm nights, Tom's build a solid reputation as one of the country's (if not the world's) finest eclectic selectors. Guests at either of these parties will be sure to testify that Tom's quite content to rifle through pretty much any genre imaginable over the course of a couple of hours, whilst keeping the dancefloor in a solid state of cohesion. A true sight to behold!
SOFIE K [NTS]
Decribed by a group of respected Manchester music heads at our last party as a 'young female Larry Levan', Sofie K returns to the day party to paste the walls with her artillery of under-the-radar disco bombs and heartfelt picks with bags of personality. We're so happy to have her back and you will be too! nts.live/shows/guests/episodes/sofie-k-29th-april-2018
CONTOURS [RHYTHM SECTION]
Manchester's finest soulful selector, Tom's ear for picking out the finest musical delicacies is pretty much second to none, bolstered by a hefty knowledge of spiritual jazz, broken-beat, and music from all corners of Africa. Early releases on Rhythm Section and Fly High Society reflect his keen musicianship, and he's also a pretty good DJ — returning fresh from a one month tour of Japan ready for Partisan! nts.live/shows/expansions-w-contours/episodes/contours-24th-march-2018
MIKE PLANT [PARTISAN]
Having played multiple years at the much slept-on and increasingly-hyped Field Maneuvers Festival, and with appearances on the cult radio show Greta Cottage Workshop and Ireland's Do Not Tape Over podcast series, Mike has built a deep and far-reaching collection of records over the years, ready to share with us all with immaculate technique. (Also to be found mixing Espresso Martinis behind the bar)
BOLT [VAM] b2b SESKA [REFORM]
Since playing at our Open Weekend afterparty at the White Hotel, Bolt has become a regular of the best underground spots in the city. Fresh from supporting Whities don Minor Science at Soup Kitchen, and throwing an incredible VAM collaborative party at Partisan, she's ready to join her old collaborator Seska — curator extraordinaire at all the Partisan in-house events you've been loving — to get back to their old tricks.
A craftsman in the art of house, Mouridis is a name for those in the know. Subtly ploughing his trade in some of the cities most underground and well loved parties, our much-loved and respected DJ maintains a second to none selection of some of the best underground house music going.
One of our most committed community outreach team volunteers, Abena has long been ready to reach out to the community in a different way. With childhood influences of afrobeat, afrofunk and disco, we can't wait for Abena to share her love of African records and more with us.
Creative Director at the legendary Dust Off party, Anna's sensitivity to all things beautiful is really special. Expect a sonic serving of fruit on the dancefloor.
