Mica (UK) AKA Mica (Mee-sha)
Blurring the lines between the conformities of micro house and deep house, Mica represents the latest in a new wave of artists to break out of the devilish minimal house scene.

Her diary has been flooded with an array of high-profile bookings, including the likes of the widely respected Episode Festival, Parklife, We Out Here and Highest Point Festival and will often be found dropping into underground locations and hidden gems across the country.

Andy Watkins AKA Wags
Wags has been a regular face on the Leeds Techno circuit since the mid 90's, first cutting his teeth behind the decks as a regular guest in the bottom room at the legendary Orbit nights between 1997- 2000.

During this period Wags also held a residency at Burnley based Deep House night Mind Biscuit playing alongside such Dj's as Ralph Lawson, Digs and Whoosh and Justin Harris.

This Saturday we welcome back for another instore.

Present Tense - “After migrating north from its Bristol birthplace, Present Tense returns to Manchester's record store-turned-dancefloor, Eastern Bloc, for another evening of sharp techno and oddball variants delivered by dedicated residents and esteemed guests, all fluent in beats.
T
op of the bill is Charles Green. The London-based DJ, promoter, producer and agent will be familiar to heads in attendance at festivals like Transmissions from Hackney, Freerotation, Houghton and Queen’s Yard this year with club dates taking him to Berlin institution Renate and Hamburg’s PAL, RX Istanbul, Lion & Lamb, and Patterns, Brighton, where he holds a residency, with regular duties also locked at revered stomp-off, Jaded. Known for technical craft and tough, high-energy selections, it’s not without reason he headlines tonight.
Elsewhere, another London talent comes in the form of Present Tense trooper Sam Carroll. A DJ booth master whose productions have found their way onto Freddy K’s legendary Krzrzrz! radio show, among other places, his marathon stints smashing out forward rhythms with a 1990s attitude marry the sounds of today with timeless noises. His love for getting stuck in with those getting sweaty front and centre mid keeps things informal, accessible, and personal.
Add to those Present Tense founder Amy Amor, her keen understanding of sounds ranging from deep, intricate house to minimal and heads down percussive drivers has been honed at cult events and venues including Freerotation, Psychedelic Discotech, Stage & Radio, and Rye Wax, to name a few, impeccable taste and ability to hone in on groove also gracing your home via digital platforms such as Steam Radio and Club Solo. Finishing the mix, Martin Guttridge-Hewitt draws on decades behind the decks for consistently varied sets, a passion for unearthing curveballs, while refusing to let party atmosphere and intensity slip, more than clear.

£5 entry on the door
Love and light,
Present Tense”

Brighter sound manchester present ✨
Secret Technology: Performance in Practice W/ Iceboy Violet & Rainy Miller

A free community sharing platform, exploring music at the intersection of the personal and the technological.

This time we’re joined by two of the North West’s most ferocious cross-genre artists and . They’ll be discussing their performance styles and approaches and the technology of expression.

Iceboy Violet is a Manchester-based producer, vocalist and DJ. Their sound combines dark brooding electronics with a powerfully raw vocal delivery. Their lyrics are honest and vulnerable, inspired by the energy and resistance of Grime music in particular and Global MC music in general, warping genres in an aim to erode boundaries we face collectively

Rainy Miller was born and bred in Longridge, Preston. When Grime exploded onto the scene in 2006, he quickly began playing and experimenting with rapping and making beats. Miller recorded and released his debut project Limbs in 2019, a work of northern neo-R&B that was put out on his newly minted own label Fixed Abode. The project saw Miller beginning to develop what would become his signature approach, turning in on himself musically for both inspiration and liberation and this introspective, felt, personal style has become central to his output (“it’s cathartic, it’s therapy”).

> About Secret Technology >

Secret Technology places emphasis on a communal approach to learning, taking place in social spaces like pubs and record shops. Each session, guest artists present a mixture of workshop and discussions around aesthetics, wellbeing, technology and their intersections.

Discover and share new ideas that can be applied across all forms of electronic music, from pop to jungle to experimental.

First up, we’re back in the Bloc on January 21st, with two extended 3 hour sets from residents Rhod Parry & Lyle Sutherland

As all of our Eastern Bloc parties, the sets will be vinyl only, allowing these two to show off their expansive knowledge, collections and beyond the mark mixing

Better yet, it’s Lyle’s birthday, so we’re all gonna be out too 😏

Free entry as always…

Come if you want ⚪️⚫️
Rave-tastic bombastic vibes n views at down at Eastern Bloc which taught me 2 things, some tracks are totally timeless and also I massively need to clean all my records! 🧽

Big love Tom2Trax for the invite and all the ravers 🕺🏻

Forever in debt to my man Tom Kennedy for putting me onto this monster many years back! ❤️ 🎵 🪩
A massive thank you to everyone who braved the ice on Friday night and got their Dub Techno groove on with us down at Eastern Bloc!

It was another killer party!
We recorded the night so expect the sets to be uploaded and shared over the next week or so 🙏

Special shouts to our DJs who did us proud as always and extra special shouts to the Eastern Bloc staff for looking after us so well again!

It's been a superb year for us, we'll be planning more parties in 2023, see you there!
Peace

Thanks to the lovely people at Manchester's Eastern Bloc, the last of the Caution!Horses CDrs still in the Recommendations. 🙂
1 week to go until our last party of 2022 when we'll be back at Eastern Bloc for another Dub Explorations Live

Making a very welcome return are our regular party starters Alec Pritchard and Sam Burton, and to spice things up for the 16th, we've asked these two top tier selectors to go Back 2 Back!

Alec is the head honcho of the always impressive Avenue Red Podcast, which hosts superb DJ's and producers across the globe, and also which has surpassed 200 shows! His record collection is second to none and we fully expect him to bring tunes that you've never heard before and will give you a metaphorical audio hug! Last time out, Alec's set was incredible and you can dive in here:
https://soundcloud.com/quadrantsoundscape/dub-explorations-091

Sam needs no introduction in our fair town of Manchester. He's hosted parties and has been asked to play everywhere. The energy he brings to his craft is unsurpassed and we couldn't imagine having anyone better to lay down Deep, Sexy and Detroit Sonics for our gorgeous Dub Explorations crowd! His last set for us lifted the roof off Eastern Bloc, check it:

Just over a week until our last party of 2022 and we're back at Eastern Bloc for another Dub Explorations Live

Taking us into the early hours is Manchester's very own Daz Mac, who is another class act making his debut for Dub Explorations.
We are excited to bring local hero, record enthusiast, and one of the nicest guys in Manchester to our soiree.
Having educated himself at some of the best parties in the north west its fair to say Daz knows a good record when he hears one.

You can expect to hear some of the highlights of his collection as he floats between Dubby house and techno, with a side influence of Berlin and Detroit.
We know he’ll hit the mark with his selections and give us what is expected to be a very energetic set!

We’re excited to get him down to what is already looking like a packed Eastern Bloc again!

Just over a week until our last party of 2022 and we're back at Eastern Bloc for another Dub Explorations Live

Warming things up for us on the night, and making his Dub Explorations debut is Qualia's Luke Whitt.
After experiencing what his crew had to offer earlier in the year when they brought Steve O'Sullivan to town, we knew we had to get Luke on the decks for us ASAP.
He is an amazing singer / songwriter, but we've asked him to put down his guitar for the night because he is no stranger to spinning deep, dubby records so we expect you'll walk in from the cold and feel the heat immediately.
We're really looking forward to having Luke play for us!

Check Luke's mix for Qualia's mix series here:
