Given that High Hoops have brought the likes of Hunee, Antal, Fit Siegel, Honey Dijon, DJ Qu and Amir Alexander to Manchester during their two year tenure, it comes as no surprise that their second birthday has a remarkable line up of guests to help them memorialise the landmark occassion.
Giving a rare UK performance, the legendary Detroit producer Omar-S makes the trip from Motor City to get in on High Hoops' celebratory soiree. The unyielding, often eccentric producer is venerated in the underground for his peerless, hardware grounded deep house and techno, and rightly so. Revisit the utterly sublime rawness of 'Thank U 4 Letting Me Be Myself' below.
Fellow Detroit and NYC selector Mike Servito also joins the bill, his adventurous, intuitive style of DJing a welcome addition to the High Hoops experience. Spencer Parker, Aurora Halal, Willow, Volvox, Annabel Fraser, Akaram and Space Afrika are amongst the other names plying the birthday party with acid, deep house, disco and techno.
