Manchester deep house and techno night Content have only gone and done it again, with another belting booking for their underground basement rave.

February 24th will see legendary US techno pioneer and Ovum boss Josh Wink take control of Joshua Brooks' rave cellar for an intimate evening of his trademark mix of experimental house, chugging techno and acid stompers.

Although being almost a household name, Josh's roots are deep in the underground, having originally cut his teeth on the rave circuit in and around his hometown of Philadelphia as an upcoming 16 year old DJ. Two years later, in 1990 he released his first EP - Tribal Confusion - on the absolutely essential and massively influential Strictly Rhythm, with long time collaborator King Britt as E-Culture.

In 1994, Josh founded Ovum Recordings, a label that is still going strong to this day and over its 17 year lifespan has released music from such illustrious artists as Boo Williams, Aaron Carl, Rulers Of The Deep, Loco Dice, Levon Vincent, Davide Squillace, Stefan Goldmann, Steve Bug, DJ Sneak, Mutiny, D'Julz, Shlomi Aber, DJ Pierre, previous Content guest - KiNK and of course, Josh himself.
In 1995, Wink had massive cross over success with "Don't Laugh," "Higher State Of Consciousness" and "I'm Ready" (under his Size 9 alias). This success helped to secure Josh's place as one of the biggest electronic music artists in the world and since then he has been a mainstay on the scene, playing at all the best clubs and largest festivals on Earth.

It goes without saying then, that this is a rare and unique chance to catch one of the biggest DJs in the world in the extremely intimate surroundings of the Content basement.

Capacity is strictly limited to just 200, and the event's well on its way to selling out - so if you don't want to pass up this opportunity then we'd suggest spending £12 pronto.
