MANCHESTER

Having bid adieu to our sanctuary of recent times, to take up the road less travelled back to the underground and irregular, we present our latest dance soiree in the clandestine KRAAK Gallery. It has been decreed that our focus shall be on jackin’ basement raves, surprise bijous bashes and periodical uber gigs. Stay vigilant and always be prepared.

And thus it is fitting that we invite a fellow who is synonymous with stealth clubbing to help us embark on this new period. James Priestley (alongside Giles Smith) is the founding Father of the Sabbath rave-behemoth that is SecretSundaze and consequently James has laid the blueprint for a multitude of copyists to follow their formula of cutting edge House and Techno + summer Sunday afternoons + evolving venue = triumphant shindig. Imitation being the greatest form of flattery and all that.

Having a style that of course envelopes the house and techno of SecretSundaze, Mr Priestley errs to the side of diversity also. A musical upbringing and a hunger for sounds of variety have led James to form the GoZilla! night that showcases the more alternative flavours out there, something also reflected in his current CAMP project. And it’s this element of eclectic that James is keen to exploit for us tonight. Expect House, Techno, Disco, Balearic, Bulgaric, expect whatever, expect everything, expect nothing. Expect a super riotous rave that’s reet off the dial.

It’s with great pleasure that we invite James to make his Diablos debut. Numbers will be uber limited and given how many hoards we turned away from the sell-out Greg Wilson party, you will need to pounce on a ticket with a certain degree of urgency.
