Selecting on the night are Sofie K (NTS Radio, Limbo Radio), Claud Cunningham (HOME Mcr and Black Angel, where she became known especially for introducing RnB, soul and even Bhangra to the soundsystems of the city’s gav village), Kim Lana Black (L.O.V.E. Party), Sayang (Equaliser, KMAH Radio) and Mixcloud Online Radio Awards winner Katbrownsugar (MCR Live, Unity Radio). There’ll also be original performances from artists including Acediia, Monopoly Phonic and  Ruby Ramelize with Elliss Turner of Moist Collective. Hosts for the evening are Sebastian Saint Charles and Sophie Satanique, and a nineties vibe dress code is encouraged.
