Cottam, Neil Diablo, Dave Walker
It’s P-A-R-T-A-Y time, we’ve only gone and made it to 8 YEARS OLD somehow. Don’t quite know how....but we have, and we are as keen as mustard to celebrate as raucously as humanly possible with all of our friends and comrades. Sticking to our nu-nomadic principles, after last month’s su-su-su superb KRAAK gallery soiree with James Priestley, we are emigrating to the City Of Salford for an all day Balearic BBQ, preceding an eve of epic rave over at Islington Mill.
Our special guest is something of a hot ticket yet also rather enigmatic on the slo-mo house and discoid scene. His untitled series of 12 inch EP’s and his down tempo house, disco & techno DJ sets, position him alongside folks such as Mark-E and The Revenge as contemporaries, whilst at the same time ensuring that there is no one currently, that sounds quite like man of the moment, COTTAM !
Since his first release in Sept 2009, Cottam has now put out four eponymous EPs and worked with greats like Ilija Rudman. Having spun techno for year upon year, he had a epiphany of sorts and these days embraces the full influence of his record collection. Last year’s Causes Of Colour mix over on the Warm blog was in many people’s end of year lists and it’s a coup to bring him back to Manchester in his current guise and for your entertainment.
It’s Bank Holiday weekend, it’s day n night, it’s our Birthday ! No excuses, let’s get down and party.
BBQ from 5pm in the courtyard supplied by the Soup Kitchen.
