rkss [UIQ/Where To Now?/Seagrave]
Working out of London, rkss has steadily been solidifying her place as one of the most exciting contemporary electronic musicians. Since she first came to our attention with "Cell" on Seagrave in 2015, her subsequent output with the likes of Where To Now?, Conditional and Alien Jams have continued to completely blow us away. Her latest LP - "DJ Tools", just released with Lee Gamble's UIQ imprint, is absolutely no exception to the rule and perhaps her best work to date - re-contextualising EDM sample packs via into utterly beautiful and astonishing pieces that explore club culture, politics and identity. As an artist we've loved and followed for a real long time, we're absolutely over the moon to finally be hosting her in Manchester! ♥

Low Power State [Permahigh]
We're also mad excited to host a live set from locally based producer and sound designer Low Power State, fka SGNL. Their EP, SKIN PRIVILEGE, is a tense, turbulent exploration of metallic club and ambient sounds. In live practice, Low Power State's sets are unpredictable, heady and relentless - this is not one to miss.

Opening the night we have a set from newest Mutualism resident, Clemency. Taking influence from her beginnings in the noise and power electronics scene, Clemency creates a skewed, drenched-in-dread interpretation of club music in sets crafted from deep experimental cuts and abrasive dance music.

Iceboy Violet [Mutualism]
Our very own Iceboy Violet will be performing live on the night. Known for blurring the lines between noise, grime, fashion and performance art - no iceboy show is the same.
