From House pioneers at Band on the Wall to huge day parties down in Salford, May’s club lineup is looking mighty impressive.

Nikki Nair | Soup | Sat 4 May | £13.40

It’s clear that the gap between the UK and US styles has grown a hell of a lot smaller in the last give years, and Nikki Nair is the prime example of this flirtation. He hits Manchester for an all-night-long session this Saturday, where his raw blend of furious electro, garage, techno, breaks will no doubt be lapped up in the Soup basement.

If you follow house music to its roots, you frequently wind up at Ron Trent’s feet. A true pioneer of the genre both as a DJ and a producer, Trent has stuck to his guns more so than most from that era, which maintains his fierce cult following. Don’t miss this rare chance to catch a master in action at Irfan Rainy’s bday shindig.
