SOUL. RAP. RAGGA. RUFF HOUSE. GARAGE. GRIME. JUNGLE
After April's family affair, June sees us team up with Manchester's premier weekly to celebrate the release of the Swing Ting remixes of Mosca's Tilt shift - due out June 20th.
SWING TING TILT SHIFT REMIXES 12" LAUNCH PARTY>
Featuring some of Manchester's finest local talent and a very special guest selector
SWING TING SOUND ft. Deejay Samrai and Platt spinning the freshest street and soundsystem music old to new alongside:
SEIJI (Bugz in the Attic)
Whether you know him from his early outings on Reinforced Records, his work with broken beat lynchpins Bugz in the Attic or his recent output on his own eponymous label; Seiji's imprint is well and truly embedded in the history of dance music.
A rare opportunity to see one of the UK's most respected figures in such an intimate venue.

ILLUM SPHERE (Hoya:Hoya)
One of the guests at the first ever Swing Ting, it's only because of his high demand worldwide that we haven't been able to get him back sooner. His reputation ever-increasing, the future is bright for one of Manchester's favourite producers.
This month sees him go back to back with Swing Ting's own Platt; who recently ripped up hoya:hoya with nuttin' but rude riddims.
RICH REASON (Hit&Run)
Our second back to back session features Swing Ting's Samrai teaming up with one of the most familiar faces of Manchester's music scene. Not content with running MCR's best and most consistent weekly, hard-working-Reason is one of the most experienced, tightest DJ's in the city; boasting a wide knowledge of all styles old to present. With two of Manchester's most eclectic selectors going head-to-head this session promises to get mucky.
JONNY DUB (Hit&Run / Hoya:hoya)
Long time friend-in-swing Jonny knows how to keep feet shuffling till the early hours.
He came correct at our 2nd bday bash with a rugged mix across the board; talented Dub comes repping the Hoya:hoya and Hit&Run contingents. Big man DJ

HOSTED BY CHUNKY & FOX
Whenever these guys have touched mic at Swing Ting it's been special. Chunky is in demand for just reason; whether he's hosting on sets for the likes of Loefah and True Tiger or fronting Brass Bands with Riot Jazz - nobody knows how to engage a crowd with as much confidence and humour.
Mr Fox's rep is growing constantly; his collaborative works with Chimpo are stirring up a frenzy on road as well as recent appearances alongside Zed Bias, Fallacy + Rodney P and most recently stealing the show on Omar's summer smash 'Dancing'; versatile, natural and deadly when mic in hand.
