As one of Manchester's most loved house brands, Kaluki has since 2006 positioned itself as one of the prime destinations for underground clubbing in the city. It's residency at Gorilla has yielded some beastly line ups, as the finest artists in modern house music make regular appearances under the arches at Whitworth Street.

The next few weeks see Kaluki continue to deliver the kind of clubbing quality we've come to expect from them. On Saturday 28th February Kaluki hook up with the fantastic Transmission team to bring all conquering house don Hot Since 82 and his Knee Deep in Sound party to Albert Hall.  See him in action above to see what's in store.

Booka Shade, Deetron, Pirate Copy and Pete Zorba round off the all star cast hitting the sublime venue on Friday. Get your tickets here.

Hot Creations favourite Patrick Topping is next to be summoned by Kaluki on Saturday March 7th. Hitting up Gorilla once more, the fast rising star of grooving, no nonsense house will unleash one of his fierce sets primed for full dance floor manoeuvrability, finely demonstrated in his and Green Velvet's 'Voicemail' (above). The always impressive Pirate Copy round off the first Kaluki shindig of March. Grab your tickets here.

The ever popular dubstep turned house master Skream makes an appearance on Friday March 20th. Having really hit his stride of late, Skream's conversion to house and techno has been one of the true success stories of underground dance music. His crowd reading skills and ability to get ravers whipped up into a frenzy is nigh on untouchable, see his Boiler Room set for evidence. Bag tickets here.

Further into the future, Kuluki join forces with Loco Dice and Martin Butttrich's all conquering Desolat brand to bring label stalwarts Guti and Hector to Gorilla on April 24th, whilst May 16th sees them hook up with Yousef's almighty Circus empire to bring techno don Marco Carola to Manchester's Albert Hall, featuring sets from Yousef, Nathan Barato, Pirate Copy and Pete Zorba.
