Brummie producer Mike Skinner makes a return to the DJ circuit this January with a rare appearance at Gorilla. Anyone who fell for the canny rhymes and irreverence of records like Original Pirate Material (2002) and A Grand Don’t Come for Free (2004) will want to see the talent behind The Streets selecting some of his most influential tracks. He’s gone on to have a career in production, as well as running his own label (The Beats Productions, sometime home to Example and Professor Green) so this really is one for the love of music. We’re losing it just listening to Dry Your Eyes.

Sat 26 Jan, Gorilla, 54-56 Whitworth Street West, M1 5WW. Tel: 0161 407 0301, 10.30pm-3am, from £6.
