9OCT14 // Endless City returns with guest Bloodboy of This City Is Ours


Thursday sees the return of beats and arts night Endless City, making its debut at the former Unity Radio Bassment club, now known as 1 Primrose Street. The sound system in there is absolutely brutal, so make the effort as my good pal Bloodboy is on selection duties along with residents Etrea, Heather Wall, Copy Kitten & JoshB. There will also be facepainting.

J Rocc in Manchester October 11



I was pretty hyped to see this poster today in Piccadilly Records – I love learning about gigs through posters rather than news feeds. Backed by the illustrious Hoya pairing of Jon K and Jonny Dub, J Rocc hits Joshua Brooks on Saturday 11th October 2014.

Tickets are here.

I was lucky enough to chat to J Rocc for Bonafide magazine – you can read a snippet at Stones Throw here or the whole thing in digital form at Issuu.

Manchester: JUNGLE BROTHERS + IN THE LOOP + KARMIC EVOLUTION // Band on the Wall 29 Sep 2014

jbs proper


Exciting times Monday as we (in the form of the In The Loop crew – DJ A-UP, emcee Bedos and myself) are warming up for the Jungle Brothers. It’s a Monday night, yes, but they’re obviously the new hip hop Fridays as eMC are also here in a month or so.

Buy tickets here, then go and buy some JBs. .

The don Karmic Evolution will also be performing on the night…
