FutureEverything’s friday night party is hosted by a bloc of Manchester’s forward and outward looking music promoters; Faktion, P13, High Bank and Annex Agency.
Hotly-tipped new producer/DJs, Nidia Minaj and Nkisi, showcase respective solo sets alongside revered sound designer and selector, Errorsmith, with 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 associated with Hamburg’s Doomcore label and hearkening back to Belgian new beat and rave.
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 picks and UK bass trax.
Acre [P13], Croww [High Bank] and Crono Hotmas [Faktion] will complement the guests with a Manchester flex repping the city’s discerning and upfront club sounds.
