Resident Advisor and Absolut are shining a spotlight on the crews that keep their local scenes thriving. The crews who, outside their nine-to-fives, work tirelessly to put on killer parties. For little or no return, these promoters bring their communities together. To celebrate this we’ve collaborated with multiple promoters throughout the UK to bring some of their favourite artists to play rare, alternative sets. Each artist explores corners of their record collections that rarely see the light of day, in some of the best intimate venues around the country.
RA and Absolut developed Alternate Cuts to promote nightlife sustainability. The series supports club culture through the spotlight of crews operating in intimate venues that sit at the heart of their local communities. We support freedom of expression and see clubs as a form of escapism and the dance floor as a neutral, equal space for everyone and anyone to enjoy.
Since 1979, Absolut have supported LGBT+ communities and all of the proceeds from the Alternate Cuts series will be donated to Stonewall.
Stonewall is Britain’s leading charity for lesbian, gay, bi and trans equality, working to create a world where every single person can be accepted without exception. It was founded in 1989 by a small group of people who wanted to break down barriers to equality. Stonewall continues to campaign and lobby government to change laws to ensure everyone, everywhere, is free to be themselves.
