Red Laser 'Manctaloween' room
The Red Laser megafoil descends on Hidden this Halloween for a much awaited debut takin over the green room of a 3 floor spectacular (Full line up on the event page).
Message from Red Laser Corp:
Red Laser Corp would like to formally thank the Hidden team for producing a venue fit for 'Manctaloween'. As a token of our appreciation we are flying in 2 heavy hitters to provide hi-class and hi-octane Italo hits, boogie bangers and heavy analogue thumpers alongside 2 of the 3 gees and a KP for extra plumage. We have sent our artist's riders via google drive separately as it would not fit on this email.
We rarely have guests from outside the Red Laser family come and play but Franz Scala, aka Franz Underwear, we’ve wanted to get over for years. Italian Franz is the Berlin based ‘play for ten hours straight no problem’ DJ unit that has been building an alternative underground sound to the domineering techno at the heart of Berlin's club scene , Some of the best venues in the city have hosted him and his Wrong Era club nights including Panorama, Griessmuehle, Wilden Renate, Paloma, Sameheads and About Blank . He’s also the boss of record label ‘Slow Motion’ and has released loads of mega music on labels such as Tusk Wax, World Unknown, Bordello a Parigi and Cocktail d’Amore.
This man is unstoppable. We’ve witnessed him play for hours into the next day at Griessmuehle’s gardens. Dropping all hitterz no shitterz across New Wave, Italo and Acid, Electro slammers and Chicago House. A perfect fit for Manchester’s love of musical journeys.

Kid Machine (Live)
If Red Laser were a family then Kid Machine would be the big brother that used to knock you out and throw darts in yer head. The Wythenshaw synth goliath comes armed with bare gear for a live set which has been wowing peops across Europe. It's been far too long since we had him on in MCR really (despite threatening to bludgeon Red Laser events co-odinator Randy Brunson over the head with his microbrute) so we're mega buzzin we've sorted him for this. This Manctalo heavyweight swings for the fences and brings more analogue thud than a lock-in at the Roland HQ Christmas party.

Randy Brunson (Wet Play / Full Beam! / Red Laser)
Red Laser's chief of events has been at the epicentre of the Manchester underground party scene for time. If he didn't change his DJ name every other week he'd be famous.
sonofapizzaman (Full Beam! / Red Laser)
Red Laser resident and Sicilian boogie supremo 'pizzaman comes armed with loads of good plus, in the wrong sleeve, footprint ridden but worth loads of cash crackly bangers to blow your nappers off.

Kickin Pigeon (Wet Play / Piccadilly Record)
Extended Red Laser family member and serious player KP has been providing Manchester's finest with bare hits for over a decade behind the counter at Piccadilly Records. He's gonna swoop in specially for Manctaloween with some super heavyweight tackle. Get ready to shuffle.
