You know the drill, on the last Sunday of every month, MOF Selectors takeover The Nook for 6 hours of eclectic music and occasional sillyness.

Each month we are joined by a guest selector from across Manchester’s musical spectrum – with Denis Jones, K.J Ill of PYC Sessions and Chunky passing through in recent months.

For the first session of 2013 we invite Jonny Dub from the Hoya:Hoya famly to join us. A great chance to catch easily one of the best party DJs in Manchester in a nice cosy setting.

Check his mix for Fabric from last year here:

The Nook’s famous roast dinner is available during the day, with MOF taking over from 6pm til late.

Expect music spanning genre, tempo, space and time.

DJ Cheeba

DJ Cheeba









Bristol’s DJ Cheeba is the sight and sound of Solid Steel’s new school. Always on top of emer…ging software, he is at the forefront of the new breed of DJs presenting audio and visuals through turntables. Mixing, scratching, cutting and remixing sounds (and pictures) in true hip hop style.

Heady beats and blistering sounds meld with iconic music videos and obscure youtube gems as Cheeba dices and splices audio and video live on turntables and midi pads with a nod to his turntablist history and love of cut and paste music. Following the invitation to join Ninja Tune’s legendary Solid Steel Radio Show as a resident in 2010, he has spent the last couple of years self-releasing DVDs and relentlessly touring some of the most prestigious venues in the UK, all over Europe and beyond.
