If there's one way of buckling the trend of sticking to what you know then brand new 1000 capacity Manchester club space Vent have cracked it. With their programme of music coming to Friday's in November (not to mention their 24 hour license) they're bound to draw punters from their usual club haunts over to Vent for a musical master class.

Phife Dawg 7th November

Announcing their presence on the Manchester circuit is a piece of hip hop royalty. One third of legendary hip hop ensemble A Tribe Called Quest - Phife Dawg hits up the venue on Friday 7th November with some punchy wordplay blared out over some classic jazz infused beats (some of that below), made that bit sweeter with guest appearances from DJ Rasta Root and Probot The Mighty

The tables turn for the remainder of the night as a squad of five star house and techno purveyors take over proceedings. Hector Moralez provides a soulful injection of house music, backed by the likes of Tommy Largo, Jamie Trench, David Glass, Jade Cox and Oliver Drops. Bag those tickets here.

Content with Chez Damier 14th November

Long standing club night Content celebrate their 5th birthday at the venue on Friday 14th November with some finely crafted beats from two major underground players.

A man who needs no introduction, Chicago's own Chez Damier (check him out below) spins some house from the deeper echelons of the genre, joined by the man who served up Carl Craig a 'Demo On Rye Sandwich' - Recloose who'll likewise thread together a set full of funky techno numbers. Tickets are available here.

Martin Buttrich 21st November

A third helping of colossal house and techno is headed up by none other than Martin Buttrich (below) on Friday 21st. The all star selector famed for releases on the likes of Planet E, Cocoon and his own Desolat imprint will undoubtedly give the newly open club the recognition it deserves with a live set of the highest order. 

Joining him for the shin dig is the genre blurring Tuccillo, revered for his distinct sound carved out from analogue and electronic components.
