Contours x Werkha – Live-ish stream 7pm Friday 30th April

Live-ish from fivefourstudios

While live music has been on pause, we’ve been busy working with a cohort of emerging artists from Manchester, recording full live sets over at fivefourstudios, Salford. These artists, who feature on the ‘2020’ compilation (available now via Band on the Wall Recordings) represent the future sound of Manchester – an outstanding collection of musicians whose work spans neo-soul, jazz, afro-electronic and more.

Weekly at 7pm Fridays, we present full sets from a different artist, broadcast ‘as-live’ for you to watch along. For our final stream we present Contours x Werkha.

A joyous coming together of two of Manchester’s most exciting, genre-twisting & future-facing producers, this collaboration sees the multi-talented Contours, following two acclaimed & sold out releases on ANMA, trading beats and synths with friend-since-childhood, Werkha, a producer who manages to turn all styles to his will, from broken beat to jazz and soul.

Contours & Werkha perform a live rendition of their killer recent release ‘Sweat’, which you can hear below and on the new Outlines compilation from ANMA & Cognitiva Records.


Live-ish streams are free to watch, but these are extremely difficult times for independent artists. You’ll see a donations box at the bottom of this page where you can give as much or as little as you wish to help support the musicians.

100% of all proceeds go to the artist.

Note: If you can’t see the YouTube Premiere stream embedded on this page, try hitting refresh shortly before the broadcast time.
