Neighbourhood at The Nook on Friday!

This Friday, Neighbourhood returns to the Nook in Chorlton for what will be a regular session, on the last Friday of every month. Resident DJs will rotate playing the best in reggae and hip hop. Get down!

And then on Sunday Mind on Fire will be falling into the Nook for our now legendary Sunday session. Come down and spill your drinks on the decks.

Groovement Show!

On Sunday afternoon after This City Is On Fire, we rolled into the Groovement studio with Mount Kimbie and This City Is Ours for some hungover shenanigans… We even matched Norvun Devo with 8 of us in the studio! If you missed it you can listen back by clicking below…

Denis Jones live tracks!

So we’ve got our grubby mitts on some improvised recordings from Denis Jones’ recent sellout show at Band On The Wall. They sound immense and I can’t believe I missed the show. It’s going to be released later this year by Humble Soul, but Denis has klndly allowed us to host two tracks here for your aural pleasure.

We just can’t stop providing even more excellent reasons to be at Islington Mill on Saturday. Here we have From The Kites Of San Quentin (playing at 9pm), being remixed by Borland (playing at 10pm), and like (nearly) everything else on here it’s available for free download.
