Micron is ending. MICRON IS ENDING. MICRON IS ENDING!
It just is.
Our final closing parties continue as per protocol every second Friday at Joshua Brooks, Manchester followed by one last Micron on NYE. So itâ€™s business as usual as we put to rest a party which will â€“ we think â€“ be fondly remembered by many and for rather a long time.
When we play our final tune in the early hours of next year, we will finish an incredible five (and a bit) year adventure. From our first, jam packed night at Joshua Brooks in November 2006, we caught an instant vibe. After hitting every party and festival in Manchester we built residencies in London and Moscow, via DJ Mag awards ceremonies and visits to remote Russian festivals, Indian Beaches, Exit Festival and bonkers Dutch boat parties.
Some rules were agreed at Micronâ€™s inception. Excellent music, naturally. But FUN seemed to be missing in Manchester at the time. All a bit serious. Loads of chin strokers. So we ripped the piss out of ourselves and that seemed to work. Luckily, people seemed to like that and we were immediately and consistently blessed with our very own wonderful, loyal, sexy, fun crowd. We owe them everything and we love them all.
Few producers of recent years have exploded onto the underground house scene like Crosstown Rebelsâ€™ latest signing Russ Yallop. While some producers spend years finding their feet, Russ made a clear statement of intent with â€˜I Canâ€™t Waitâ€™ his debut release on Crosstown Rebels, a solid cut of nu-school house that was charted across the board by everyone from Jamie Jones to MANDY and was featured by Heidi on her â€˜In New Music We Trustâ€™ show on BBC Radio One. Meanwhile, â€˜Rock Meâ€™ on the B-side was picked up by DJ Mag and featured on their â€˜Best of Britishâ€™ covermount compilation at the start of this year. Named as â€˜One To Watchâ€™ in Electronic Beats magazine and with future releases on Jamie Jones and Lee Fossâ€™ Hot Creations and Crosstownâ€™s new â€˜Rebellionâ€™ label offshoot, it should come as little surprise that Russ got snapped up by â€˜Ibiza Voiceâ€™ to mix a recent instalment of their hugely popular podcast series despite being relatively new to the scene.
Long-time friend and now a fully-fledged member of Crosstown Rebels, Russ Yallop has been biding his time, honing his production skills for the last few years. Part of a new breed of DJs, with studio skills to match, which includes his close friends Lee Foss, Richy Ahmed and Robert James, Russ Yallopâ€™s sound is infected with warm charm and boundless energy. Fusing fun into dance music again, Russ and his UK-based peers are creating a new strain of house music that is currently taking the worldwide underground by storm, promising bright things for the future.
