This month is the Manchester launch for the ‘Friendly Bacteria’ album, released on 19th May on Ninja Tune.
Denis Jones will be playing live at 10pm, and the night will be hosted by MC Kwasi.
From early experimentations with acoustic guitar and loop pedals, Denis Jones has developed a show-stopping live performance based around the core of his exceptional and unique guitar-playing style and rich, soulful voice. Utilising a loop station and all manner of samplers and effects, Denis creates vast, complex orchestrations of beat-box rhythms, multi-layered vocals and other-wordly sounds which veer from subtle heart-wrenching folk and blues to heavy bass-driven electronica.
“scuzzy Mancunian blues at its richest and, most intriguing.” The Guardian
As always, Scruff will be at the controls for 5 hours, serving up a melting pot of jazz, soul, hip hop, funk, disco, deep house, reggae, afrobeat, latin, and plenty of goodies that don’t fit into any category.
This is a non-mobile disco. Please don’t use cameras and phones on the dancefloor.
We ask this because we want the dancefloor to be a place where everyone can be in the moment. If you’re tweeting, texting, bidding for a pair of socks on eBay or taking a picture of your friends, you’re not only out of the moment, you also might be making it hard for someone else to be in the moment. The bar or balcony is a much better place for this.
