On 10/11/2012 Mind on Fire DJs make an appearance at the Junction for UnConvention hulme.

Un-Convention is a not for profit global grassroots and independent creative membership organisation. It’s crowd sources from it’s community for ideas that will help independent music makers, producers and communities. Starting off as a homegrown Manchester organisation it has since branched out holding events as far afield as Colombia, Spain, Venezuela, Uganda, Brazil, Germany and India.

Un-Convention 10.11.12 will explore Moss Side and Hulme’s rhyme, punk, rave, party, reggae and dance culture that ultimately influenced the world. 10.11.12 will feature the most diverse performers, musicians and DJs from Manchester’s exciting past and present. Through a magical journey of unpredictable encounters, parties, exhibitions, projections and talks, we will unravel the secrets of the cultural melting pot of Manchester, Moss Side and Hulme.

We are very happy that after many years of trying, Deadbeat is coming to Manchester. Playing the Opening Party of Future Everything Festival, in association with MUTEK and Mind on Fire and with support from Andy Stott and Szare, we kick off one of the best Future Everything lineups in years with a bang.

Deadbeat is Scott Monteith, a long time Montrealer and recent Berlin ex-pat who has been releasing his own special blend of dub-laden, minimal electronics since 2000, for labels such as Cynosure, Musique Risquée, Scape, and Spectral. His work has received consistent acclaim from the industry’s leading publications and websites, and has drawn regular performance invitations for some of the world’s most respected festivals, including Barcelona’s Sonar, Berlin’s Transmediale, and Montreal’s own MUTEK. Whether crafting kaleidoscopic house and techno, snap-clap digital dancehall, or impossibly heavy dub, Scott continues to search for his own unique voice between the ones and zeros.

Following the release of Paper Tiger’s Illuminated EP on Monday, we head into Soup Kitchen tonight to celebrate, with sounds coming from Paper Tiger (laptop/sax set), Raphael Attar’s Variety Hour, Blacksmif, who’s debut EP dropped today, and Groovement and In The Loop boss Agent J. The Illuminated EP will be on sale, along with other MOF releases and it is free entry before 11, so get down early (Only £3 after though!). See you there!?
