The cream of Manchester’s upcoming hip hop crop is due to assemble at Band on the Wall for a free show, topped by LayFullStop. Rubbing shoulders with fellow Manchester hip hop acts Cul-De-Sac and Roots Raddix, Lay has been carving her niche with singles like ‘Ying Yang’ and ‘Aura’, telling tales of life in the city over atmospheric rhythms and hip hop beats. Support comes from Moss Sider Abnormal Sleepz, another fresh Manchester talent whose firm grip on hip hop grooves has earned him the attentions of BPM, SBTV and more. Also warming up are grimy RnB producer HMD and Kinkai, whose collaborations have seen tunes released with LayFullStop as well as Mecca:83 and Ape Cult’s Black Josh. Local genre stalwart Konny Kon will man the decks.

Fri 21 Jul, Band on the Wall, 25 Swan Street, Northern Quarter, Manchester, M4 5JZ, Tel: 0161 834 1786, 8pm, FREE (adv sign-up required),
