A co-headline show from two modern day musical pioneers at the Warehouse this weekend. Detroit’s Danny Brown (pictured) champions Manchester-influenced new album Atrocity Exhibition (named for the Joy Division track on final album Closer), a brilliantly varied explosion of bass and lyricism which pretty much kicks commercial hip hop in the teeth, then shouts at it. Wiley’s much anticipated latest album, Godfather, is now delayed until January so catch a preview of it tonight. The rest of the line up encapsulates the current best of bass: Exit Records head honcho dBridge, London road rappers Section Boyz, legendary producer DJ Hype, dreamscape beatmaker Clams Casino, the DJ’s DJ Benji B, Rinse regular Oneman plus fresh selections from Amy Becker. Preditah rounds up the grime side of proceedings whilst garage don Wookie drops in to add even more weight to the line up. The dashing Manchester trio of Bane, Chunky and Rich Reason provide a solid foundation through the night while city stalwarts Juicy take over Room 3, with Sheffield rogue Rev Austin and In The Loop vet DJ A-UP guesting. A percentage of profits from tonight will go to the #savefabric fund, set up following the closure of the Islington club earlier this year.
Fri 11 November, Warehouse Project, Store Street, Manchester M1 2GH, 9.30p-5am – last entry: 10.30pm, £29.50, www.whptickets.eventgenius.co.uk
