In a world where genres collide and style means nothing, it would be churlish of us to plough only one furrow. So, in contrast to the somewhat brooding sounds of our Park Hill birthday (http://www.residentadvisor.net/event.aspx?286944), weâ€™ll be seeing in October in a somewhat brighter manner.
Richy Ahmed (Hot Creations)
As resident DJ for one of the worldâ€™s most on-form labels, this young Geordie has seen his star rise exponentially over the last year. Personally picked by Jamie Jones for party-starting duties at Hot Creations dates around the world, Richy is an integral part of the labelâ€™s set up and a damn fine DJ to boot.
Also dabbling in production, his solo work has appeared on numerous Hot Creations compilations, and alongside Miguel Campbell and SAS among others heâ€™s reworked Black Strobe and stable mate Alexis Raphael. Focused firmly on the dancefloor his is not music for moody introspection, but rather for shaking it until the small hours.
Richy comes to us off the back of gigs at Fabric, Space and the DC-10 closing party, and weâ€™re looking forward to having his blend of house, funk and disco blow away the autumnal blues.
Part of Sheffieldâ€™s house and techno renaissance, the DE:BUG day raves at Rise may have only been running for a few months but have already hosted Mancunian techno dons H2 and rising talent Chris Special.
Weâ€™re very pleased to have DE:BUG residents Reece Johnson, Stephen Roberts and Steve Lynam bringing their brand of deep techno and house to get things moving.
Next month they launch Upstairs at DQ with the ferociously talented Jordan Peak, and with One Records boss Adam Shelton lined up for Novemberâ€™s party things look very bright indeed.
Support comes from drumro[ll] residents Up and Atom and SixFootSick, and door is just Â£4 after 11.
