Turn it up! Here is evidence of the music line-up for IMBC 15. There were DJs at every session as well as a bumper live line-up from Aficionado on the Sunday closing party.
The Heavenly Jukebox : celebrating 25 years of Heavenly Records. Expect something special from this seminal London label whose current roster includes artists such as Mark Lanegan, Jimi Goodwin, Stealing Sheep, H.Hawkline, and King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard. Over the course of their illustrious past, they’ve released records with Edwyn Collins, Beth Orton, Doves, Manic Street Preachers and more.
Seasoned (with a sprinkling of parmesan) DJ professional, Pasta Paul, has been spinning one out on the Manchester circuit for a vintage amount of years now. You may have caught Pasta Paul’s regular turns at Kosmonaut and Ply in recent times. Always al dente, always a great selection of records.
SMS & PAT RYDER
Stop Making Sense, a trio of Manchester party time DJs, lock horns with one-man show, Pat Ryder (Piccadilly Records). It’s great to have SMS back on our DJ roster after previous IMBC workouts, expect diverse selections & high ABV bangers. Pat Ryder has recently been staging regular DJ night, Coastin’, with Emilie Bea at Soup Kitchen so check that out, Balearic troopers.
MATT WARD & WHITE PEPPER
Piccadilly Records power couple, Matt Ward & White Pepper, merge their non-more impressive record collections together to create something greater than the sum of both parts. Expect excellent relaxed crowd work and masterful mood swings. Highly endorsed.
FUNKADEMIA WITH MYK
Funkademia, Manchester’s famed longest running club night, offers up Myk Nolan spinning forth choice selections from his funk, soul, hip-hop & “other” pile. A fitting Saturday night accompaniment if ever there was one.
Virtuoso finger picker & celebrated long man, Dan Bridgewood-Hill, mesmerises every time with his John Fahey-esque 6-string sound. Great musician from many a Manchester underground band.
DREAM LOVERS (live)
Blissful adventures from lesser seen Manchester duo. Melancholic pop jams.
MÉNAGE A TROIS (live)
Manchester trio offering up atmospheric R&B, honing in on that alt-pop sound with vocal hauntings.
RUF DUG’S ISLAND TAPES
Celebrated DJ & Ruf Kutz label honcho, Ruf Dug, brings his tropical tape hiss to Victoria Baths.
MOONBOOTS & JASON BOARDMAN
Aficionado heads of state, Moonboots & Jason Boardman, turn up the Balearic to 11. Expect the perfect aural pairing to your pool-side October sipping.
