For this month’s Nook sessions we’ve invited along special guest Agent J to get busy on the ones and twos… J is best known for his long running Groovement radio show which regularly attracts some of the biggest names in music alongside the cream of homegrown talent. Recent guests to his show include Pete Rock, Daedelus, Mary-Anne Hobbs, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Blue Daisy, Lorn and Paper Tiger, not to mention pretty much every DJ, MC, producer, and music collective making noise in the Manchester music scene! Agent J is also the driving force behind the In The Loop clubnights, one of the main local hip-hop nights currently holding their own in the city, whose freestyle cyphers are a somewhat of a proving ground for any self-respecting Mancunian MC.

Oh and we nearly forgot to mention Agent J is a damn fine DJ with an encyclopedic knowledge of hip-hop, funk, soul, psych, electronica and much more! We’re really looking forward to seeing what he pulls out of his record bag on the night, also playing on the night will be a selection of our Neighbourhood residents.

Neighbourhood at The Nook

Tonight and every 2nd Friday of the month you can find MOF DJs with the Neighbourhood family at The Nook in Chorlton. Good beer, good tunes and free entry every time, and with the tram from the city centre stopping literally outside there’s now no excuse!
