Fri 6 Jun | Hybrid Theory | Joshua Brooks
After hosting Cause & Affect earlier in the month, Joshua Brooks features another key duo from the Jackin’/House & Bass scene this Friday – Hybrid Theory. Their remix of DECiBEL’s Flowdan-featuring Skanks brought them to the attention of many a DJ last year, and the pair’s prolific label Four 40 Records has gone from strength to strength in 2014. They’ll be playing for an hour and a half and have the skills as DJs to be worth the price of admission alone.

Sat 7 Jun | Keep It Unreal 15th Birthday | Band On The Wall
15 years is an unbelievable achievement, and Mr Scruff’s party is still going as strong as ever. With a record collection unmatched by anyone and an ability to blend all genres into one coherent experience, Scruff remains at the top of his game – here’s to another 15!

Sat 7 Jun | Parklife Afterparties | Various venues
Unsurprisingly, there are approximately a million afterparties following Parklife this Saturday, official and unofficial. Hit&Run spinoff D-Tached feature School Records’ Paleman at The Roadhouse, Krystal Klear’s Labour of Love night makes its debut in Manchester with Jacques Greene at Soup Kitchen & Overproof host a special bootleg dancehall party at Odder. Crucially, these are some of the more reasonably priced options for continuing your festival fun.

Sun 8 Jun | Trumpet & Badman | Soup Kitchen
DJ Haus, boss of Unknown to the Unknown Records has his finger in many pies. The latest of these pies is Trumpet & Badman, a throwback garage-house partnership with the mighty DJ Q, probably the leading light in UK Garage right now. This party celebrates the launch of the pairing’s forthcoming EP and features Haus alongside a special, unannounced guest. You don’t have to be a genius to work out who this guest is likely to be, resulting in pure party vibes for a Sunday evening.

Thanks to Swing Ting. Street and soundsystem music, 3rd Sat of the month at Soup Kitchen. 

Thu 5 Jun - Sun 8 Jun
