Tue 28 Jan | Red Bull Music Academy | Gorilla
The lecture/workshop component of the RBMA event is already full, but there’s nothing stopping you heading down to the free party afterwards, although getting down early is advised. A lineup of RBMA-affiliated acts, including Artwork, T Williams and a back to back from Hoya’s Krystal Klear and Illum Sphere, for no money, is not to be sniffed at.

Wed 29 Jan | DJ Haus  (pictured)| Soup Kitchen
After bringing through El-B at the back end of last year, Obscure’s next headliner is the bossman at one of my favourite labels, Unknown to the Unknown. With a roster that includes the likes of DJ Q, Palace, Murlo and Stingray and a refreshing scattergun, see-what-sticks release policy, UTTU do things differently. Haus himself has been making power moves with his recent Thug Houz releases and collaboration with DJ Q, Trumpet and Badman being particular highlights.

Thu 30 Jan | J Dilla Changed My Life | The Roadhouse
There’s not really much you can say about J Dilla that hasn’t already been said. Now an annual event that’s firmly cemented into Manchester’s calendar, this fundraiser features the likes of Spin Doctor, Jonny Dub and the Juicy DJs paying tribute to the great producer. Dilla’s brother, Illa J, will also be performing live on the night.

Fri 31 Jan | Soul:ution | Band on the Wall
Headlining this month’s instalment of Soul:ution, one of the UK’s most loved jungle/D&B producers and DJs: Dillinja. 20 years strong into his career, Dillinja’s a true veteran of the scene, but don’t expect that to translate to a lack of energy. Support comes from Soul:ution’s stellar cast of residents, Marcus Intalex, Bane & Galvini and our very own MC Fox will be hosting on the night. Don’t expect tickets to hang around for much longer with this one.
£10 tickets: www.skiddle.com

Thanks to Swing Ting – street + soundsystem music, 3rd Saturday of the month at Soup Kitchen.
