Since landing on the Manchester club scene only a couple of years ago, So Flute has firmly cemented its reputation as one of the go-to nights for groove bending, impossible to define vibes. They’ve spun with the likes of Giles Peterson, hosted unforgettable sessions with Motor City Drum Ensemble and Leatherette, and have already been compared to bona-fide clubbing institutions Electric Chair, Friends And Family and Keep It Unreal. Tonight we open up Band on the Wall’s dancefloor for what could be their biggest and best night yet, featuring Sadar Bahar, Danuka, Bolts and Yadava

Already fascinated by the DJs he saw mixing records in clubs at the dawn of the 1970s, Sadar Bahar’s career was kick-started the day his parents gave him his first set of decks, at the end of that same decade. The rest of his story is the stuff of legend on the Chicago house scene.

Freely admitting to having cleared a few dancefloors at the start of his career due to some over-ambitious sets, Sadar Bahar is nevertheless someone who accepts the consequences of his actions. What’s more, his audiences would not have it any other way: they come expecting the unexpected, gems uncovered by the expert after years of relentless digging. For Sadar, it is a passion which he is now determined to share with new generations.

“In a city that spawned multi-genre nights such as Electric Chair or Friends And Family, the leading exponent currently using hip-hop DJ techniques to join the dots between soul, funk, rap, reggae and Afrobeat is Mr Scruff. So Flute aims to redress the situation, offering a similar musical smorgasbord.”
