Manchester gets a little taste of the hugely influential NYC house night Club Shelter this Friday, courtesy of legendary resident Timmy Regisford. On top of his contribution to one of the most important parties of the early 90s and beyond, Regisford is responsible for signing acts such as Eric B & Rakim and house icons Blaze in his role as an A&R. Known for his epically long sets, this is probably going to be one of the few appearances where the idea of being taken on a journey is actually relevant. It’s fitting that Community will be hosting this event – they’ve been flying the flag for quality house in Manchester for a number of years now and their commitment to creating events with a positive vibe runs parallel with Shelter’s claim to be ‘New York City’s only Non-prejudicial Progressive Underground Dance Club.’ Now seemingly settled into Dry Live’s basement, the party goes from strength to strength, continuing to book acts that others may be too scared to take a risk on. Advance tickets can be bought for £10, a more than fair price for one of the most well-respected house DJs of all-time. A great way to mark the end of the year for Community and one that makes 2014 look even brighter.

Fri 13 Dec, Dry Live, 28-30 Oldham Street, M1 1JN. Tel: 0161 236 9840, 10.30pm-4am, £10,
