The Albert Hall has become one of Manchester’s most loved live music and clubbing venues in the city since its refurbishment and opening in 2013. On October 2nd, 2 heavyweights from the worlds of house and techno will be taking to the stage as Kaluki host a very special night that will be ushering in the winter months.
Kaluki are one of the most renowned clubbing outfits in Manchester, having thrown parties at The Warehouse Project and Sankeys amongst many others of the best venues in town. To make this event at The Albert Hall extra special, the guys at Kaluki have invited one of the most illustrious house music producers and one of the most revered techno selectors ever to the dance floor.
Ibiza’s Pacha Nightclub has had many iconic nights over the years, with Solomun’s +1 being one of the most popular parties at the club today. As well as this, the German has held a residency at Destino all summer long, which has been where his new live project has been showcased. Being a hugely accomplished DJ known for playing all night long sets in some of his favourite destinations, he is the owner of Diynamic Records, the label that has fronted releases from the likes of Stimming, David August and H.O.S.H. Versatility and reading a crowd are Solomun’s strengths, making him a perfect half of the double headliner at Kaluki’s Albert Hall Show.
The second guest who will be visiting Manchester on 2nd October is Dubfire. Known for his multi sensory solo live Hybrid shows as well as being one half of Deep Dish with his friend Sharam, Dubfire is one of the most esteemed electronic artists to branch into mainstream music as well as maintaining a top quality underground alias. Sci+Tec Digital Audio is the label Dubfire fathomed in 2007 intended to further the minimal techno sound through emerging and established talent. The platform has released a number of Dubfire’s own tunes including the dance floor weapons Rabid and Exit, with his Deep Dish moniker winning a Grammy Award and several UK Top 10 positions.
Although the two of these guests may not usually be spotted on the same bill, this will give the two an opportunity to explore all parts of their record bags, which will be an exciting prospect for fans of either or both of these world renowned artists.
