After a thrilling month in which it seemed like the entire world was doing Dry January, dance-floors are aching to get your feet moving again, check out our picks of the month in the club world.

Heathens: Peder Mannerfelt + Henzo | Soup | Sat 11 Feb | £6

One of Sweden’s most prominent techno producers, Peder Mannerfelt, hits Soup for Henzo’s in-house night, Heathens. With over ten years of productions, Mannerfelt is known for his cerebral sonics, both in his propulsive DJ sets and highly intricate live sets. Expect nothing short of transcendence this Saturday.

31-33 Spear Street, Manchester, M1 1DF, United Kingdom
High Hoops: THC + Reflex Blue | The White Hotel | Sat 11 Feb | £15

Long standing queer night High Hoops return to Salford, this time inviting Tania Humeres Correa a.k.a. THC. Any presumptions you have based on her moniker can be swiftly disposed of, she is anything but stoned in her style, where fast, playful and uplifting techno punch brightly alongside classic house and rave thrillers. The same can be said for Reflex Blue, whose productions are anything but a deep violet as his alias suggests.

Dickinson Street, M3 7LW
Citric: Amaliah + Suchi + Aletha | The Loft | Sat 25 Feb | £12

Warehouse project resident, Aletha launches a new club-night this month at the newly refurbed Loft. Guests at the debut include Amaliah, a London-based DJ who’s spun at Berghain, Phonox and  Fabric following her breakthrough in 2021 and Boiler Room debut 6 months ago. She’s joined by Daytimers resident, Suchi, who wears her South Asian heritage on her sleeve, with Indian influences and samples blending effortlessly with cutting-edge disco, house and bass selections.

Unit 1, New Street, Manchester, M40 8AW
Grime Orchestrated | The Blues Kitchen | Fri 17 Mar | £12.50

We never thought we’d see the day when a 12-piece orchestra would be performing grime classics. The second wave of grime in the charts has brought the genre front and centre once again and it’s high time the genre’s rapidly extending heritage was celebrated on a night like this. Support comes from Hit & Run founder, Rich Reason.
