Deep dark moody techno, sexy DIY self-healing holistic industrial techno, utterly horrifying gorgeous noise, visceral and feral.

A facefull of full frontal animal magic with spectral bpms from Gabba to soul via R&B to dancehall. DJ sets from Nat# herself and Katie Hesska who is equally comfortable crafting atmospheric ambient openers and relentless, thumping closers, bringing us forward-thinking club sounds and intense rave tracks. Her sets are a masterclass in gelling seemingly disparate genres through fast, innovative mixing. Illusive & private performer Croww brings a fierce live set to the mix. There will be a donkey. Don’t miss this.

Hesska, a staple in the Manchester club scene, utilises her background in the city’s noise and industrial scene to inform expert selection of forward-thinking club sounds and intense rave tracks. Equally comfortable crafting atmospheric ambient openers and relentless, thumping closers, her sets are a masterclass in gelling seemingly disparate genres through fast, innovative mixing. Hesska is a long-standing host at NTS Radio Manchester and has shown her abilities as an outstanding curator at Club CITS and previously Gesamtkusntwerk. Her journeys through the club’s sonic margins have fixed her as a legend in the Manchester club scene.

Hesska recently put out a mix via Discwoman and they had this to say about it:

“Manchester’s Hesska steps up for our next mix. The Club CITS & NTS resident comes out flexing, her knowledge and obsession with music is apparent and shown by the intricate narrative’s she weaves throughout her selections using dramatic, creative yet seamless transitions. You’re in for a treat.”

Croww is a Manchester based artist pecking at the corpuses of Black Metal, Flashcore and DnB and nesting new mutations of hypermodern dance music. His process of painstakingly melding, dissecting and assembling in uchronic form to suppose an alternate history of the last 20 years of pop and subcultural phenomena, one where metal is dissolved and alloyed with the extremities of Grindcore, Flashcore, late ‘90s D&B and hypermodern Rap instrumentals.
