Shift on Friday 15th February 2019
Grime is a genre of electronic dance music that emerged in London in the early 2000s. It developed out of earlier UK electronic music styles, including UK garage and jungle, and draws influence from dancehall, ragga, and hip hop.
Dubstep is a genre of electronic dance music that originated in South London in the late 1990s. It is generally characterized by sparse, syncopated rhythmic patterns with bass lines that contain prominent sub-bass frequencies
Fast forward to 2019 and were having a fu.king disco in manchester with some top dons in the game. Grab them tickets now coz it's going to be a night to remember.
co-founded Rinse FM in 1994. For a three-year period in the early days of the station the Rinse studio was hosted in DJ Slimzee's house. From the late 1990s Slimzee was one of the first DJs to start introducing the dark new music coming out of the UK garage scene into his sets and throughout the early 2000s he hosted a Sunday afternoon grime show which would regularly showcase some of the genres best MCs. Many artists who featured on Slimzee's pirate radio shows went on to have mainstream success, he received a golden disc in recognition of his contribution to Dizzee Rascal's successful debut album Boy in da Corner. In 2005 Ofcom disconnected a Rinse FM radio transmitter and Slimzee received an ASBO, believed to be the first of its kind, banning him from every rooftop in the borough of Tower Hamlets. This event ended Slimzee's regular show on Rinse FM, but he continued to host occasional one off shows and take live bookings until his return to regular radio on NTS in 2014. Since his return to radio Slimzee has recorded sets with MCs including Skepta, Jammer, Scratchy, D Double E and Trim.
There's a lot of talent in Manchester that tends to get overlooked, but it's a testament to the city's apparently inherent passion for music that this acts less as a barrier than as a hurdle that needs to be crossed at its highest point. Biome is a producer representative of this approach in that there is nothing rushed about his work and he only seems happy if what people are hearing from is something that he can call fully-formed. After first breaking into dubstep with the sort of big kicks and dark mid-range found on tunes like 'Sonic' he has honed his sound to something genuinely original and he's now reaping the rewards of his patience and getting regular plays from some of the biggest names on the circuit. By considering the importance of the mid-range of a tune alongside the bassline and still keeping in mind the idea of space, Biome builds that ever-elusive sense of darkness into his beats whilst maintaining the energy within them that is necessary to get people moving on a dancefloor. (hedmuk) Known for his brooding half-step, spacious vibes and dark atmospheric compositions, Manchester-based Biome - whose skills as a first-rate DJ are already cemented alongside his natural talent in producing incomparable crowd-pleasing tunes – is set to join an army of heavy-weights on the 15th of feb.

Manchester’s heavyweight producer making major movements right about now - better believe that. From the waves made by the gully “Leaned Out” collaboration with IAMDDB, Inka stepped it up again on the project Waveydon Ballads. Fusing his roots in bass music with elements drawn from all corners of the music spectrum – bringing through some serious talent along the way
Inka’s music has brought a new, widely appreciated sound to the Manchester scene, and as support grows in his home city, so does his notoriety across the country. His eclectic DJ sets often see off any dance in only a way Inka knows how, and the Waveydon himself is sure to be a known name in the scene for some time to come.
