The event series returns for a third year, continuing to celebrate the UK crews that keep their local nightlife scenes thriving.
The live event series spotlights some of the best UK crews putting on parties across the country, while also giving DJs a chance to explore a musical style they might not usually play out.
It all starts on Thursday, April 4th, when we'll join Liverpool’s women-focussed club night SisBis to host Jayda G at 24 Kitchen Street. She'll be deep-diving into a genre that’s been a huge influence on her musically: Rhythm & Blues. From its roots in blues through rock, psych, soul and hip-hop, she'll be exploring every part of the sound, from its inception right up to the present day.
The next week, we'll join one of Manchester’s leading LGBTQ+ parties, High Hoops, in bringing Motor City Drum Ensemble to Soup Kitchen. On Thursday, April 11th, he'll be playing a set of pure techno. It's a genre that's been key to his musical style but is still a far throw from the deep house and rare soul that he's known for.
Our final stop brings us to Sheffield, where we'll join Pretty Pretty Good to host Tama Sumo at Yellow Arch Studios on Thursday, May 2nd. The Ostgut Ton mainstay has prepared a wide-ranging set of broken beats especially for the occasion.
Resident Advisor and Absolut launched Alternate Cuts in 2017 to promote nightlife sustainability by celebrating crews and intimate venues at the heart of their local scenes.
Tickets for each party will be £6. To register your interest, sign up here. Registration closes midday UK time on Thursday, March 14th.
All ticket proceeds from the series will be donated to Stonewall.
