It’s a sad time for the Northern Quarter, as the event space at Kraak Gallery – one of the area’s hidden gems – is soon to shuts its doors permanantly. However, the venue still has a few cool little events on its calendar, including a club night coming in mid-September hosted by the local label Natural Sciences. The headlining DJ, Asquith, can usually be found in glamorous London where he runs his own night at the uber-trendy Corsica Studios. He’s also the main man at indie label Lobster Theremin. Also appearing is Space Afrika, a duo specialising in dubbed-out techno dread. Their tunes are inspired by the industrial architecture of Manchester, and they use field recordings to create an expansive, driving sound. Stu Spandex is a DJ and recording artist who’s known as a master of hardware, because of his use of lo-fi music tech.
