Get back from your holidays. Manchester’s the place to let your hair down with weekly wig outs. The techno and house music promoters Covert and Exploit have risen to the challenge of curating a series of summer shindigs, keeping the tempo alive with Shiba San, the globally renowned groove peddler with a background in hip hop production, now treading a sonic path through deep house across the world’s finest dancefloors. His ties with Claude von Stroke’s Dirtybird label and ANIME & Dance’s Cuff have helped to raise his profile en route to chart success through the Beatport House chart and beyond. The Covert and Exploit residents, Just Jorge and Lewis Smith, supply the warm ups to get feet tapping and heads nodding, so loosen those limbs under Manchester’s railway arches with sunshine soundsystems at Gorilla.

Sat 18 Jul, Gorilla, 54-56 Whitworth Street West, M1 5WW, 11pm, £8 – £15,
