Coloursound Hits Manchester

WE’VE GOT A PAIR OF TIX TO GIVEAWAY TO THIS EVENT, SIMPLY EMAIL COMPS@THERANSOMNOTE.CO.UK WITH THIS IS IN THE TITLE “Manchester, she on fire at the moment!! Kenny Larkin, Kevin Saunderson, Lee Foss, Levon Vincent all under one roof?? Jesus!!”

Coloursound is the bold new club venture taking over the north of England which has already nailed a sold-out opening party across the Pennines in Leeds. Two of the first seasons parties will take place in the electronic music haven that is Manchester, with house and techno legends  Kevin Saunderson,  Lee Foss, Levon Vincent, Fred P and Kenny Dope playing at Soundcontrol and Joshua Brookes on 15th October and 3rd December respectively.

The first party will offer some deep and dusty sounds from legends and new school heroes a like. The venue is the intimate space known as Soundcontrol which is sure to make for a nice old school and intimate feel.  The December party meanwhile offers a very special night long set from Kenny Dope. Rather than the usual two hours, the Dope man will get at least four hours to run a gamut of styles from house to disco and more.

Both of the events are sure to offering something different than the norm, so to miss out would be silly

 Never has so much been expected by so many of so few is how you could describe the weeks leading up to the second Coloursound event, this time at Manchesters small but raw and future styled Sound Control on October 15th.  Having gotten off to a sellout start first time round, Coloursound will once again come true on all their promises with another hefty line-up of talent, this time from a techno and house mould. 

Kenny Larkin headlines a man whos colourful character always comes out in his seminal house and techno records and has done for years.  As well as being a stand-up comedian, Kenny is often cited as one of the most influential producers ever.  Someone just as instrumental to the development of techno over the decades is Kevin Saunderson.  A member of the Belleville Three, Saudersons legacy is ever secured thanks to his membership of Inner City whose seminal hit Good Life will never grow old. As well as on his own legendary techno label KMS, Saunderson releases on Planet E among many others.

Offering a lighter take on electronic music will be Lee Foss, the Hot Creations boss – alongside pal Jamie Jones who has reinvented a certain strain of disco fuelled, vocal, sexy and slo-mo house music for labels like LA Culprit as well as his own and is a party starting DJ like few others today.   He plays all over the world from fabric to WMC as well as cool underground parties like Lo*Key in London.

And so to US deep experimenter Levon Vincent whos smoky, basement aligned house and techno is perfect for late night dancing. His DJ diary takes him all over the world, whilst his records find homes on his own Novel Sound as well as connoisseur imprints like Underground Quality and Ostgut Ton.

Finally, it will be deepest house exponent Fred P AKA Black Jazz Consortium who completes the line-up.  Recording for a wide range of labels over the last 20 years – most notably Underground Quality headed by the legendary DJ Jus Ed – Fred P has gained a following of true deep house lovers the world over. Always touring the globe as a unique contributor to this genre, his albums and singles are always well received, as are his oh-so impressive DJ sets.

Aside from these big guns, Tom Craven and James Cotterill of Illusion Recordings, the house and techno spinning rebels that are Ketoloco; SiKe DJs, Zutekh DJs, PoleKatz, Burton Brothers and Higgy will all add some local flavours.
