Join Mr. Scruff for a Manchester Jazz Festival 2 room special with Nu Genea (DJ + Keys) playing for 2 hours, as well as getting involved in some B2B action, digging from a box of Soul / Jazz / Disco / Funk / House / Techno / Afro / Latin / Reggae / Hip Hop / Breaks / Balearic and lots more. Atiké, Léna C & Obeka take charge in Room 2 for a 6 hour Me Gusta throwdown. All welcome, regardless of age, nationality, mobility, gender or sexuality. Regulars & first timers getting down together… mixed up music for a lovely mix of people! 

Nu Genea is the artistic project from musicians/DJs Massimo Di Lena and Lucio Aquilina. Inspired by obsessive record digging, their infectious, feel good live project brings music from the past and reignites it in an original groovy equation inspired by disco,
funk, boogie, electronic, dub, folk and the Napoli music scene.. At Band on the Wall they will be sharing their inspirational music discoveries, adding live keys for a fruity cocktail. 

Ninja Tune recording artist & DJ Mr. Scruff has been running his regular Keep It Unreal party in Manchester for nearly 25 years, sharing a massive range of music with a keen sense of fun & surprise. 

Me Gusta is a Manchester based collective with roots from Ecuador, Togo, Bermuda, Kenya, France and Norway – a dedicated selection exposing the sonic boundaries of Afro-Latin, Caribbean and Middle Eastern musical diaspora. Atiké, Léna C & Obeka are running things in room 2 for 6 hours. 

All 6 artists bring a sense of musical discovery, shared with fun and passion. We can’t wait to see what they cook up together on the night!


Please don’t use phones on either 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 areas or balcony is a much better place for this.


Be nice to everyone. Tip the lovely bar staff. Say excuse me if you bump into someone. 
Respect other people’s space. If you’re made to feel uncomfortable, or if you see anyone behaving inappropriately let one of our staff know, and we will sort it. We will not stand for inappropriate behaviour of any kind. If you witness or are subjected to sexual harassment, intimidation, unwanted invasion of your personal space or any other form of disrespect, let a member of staff know and we will deal with the situation in a way that makes you feel comfortable – we’re prepared to do anything from have a quiet word to contacting the police.


Tickets are usually taken off sale at 4pm on the day of the event, so even if it looks sold out online there should be places on the door. Please come down early if you don’t have a ticket. 


If you have a wheelchair, please let us know in advance (at least a week’s notice is ideal) & we will do our best to reduce the number of tickets on sale to give more room to manoeuvre. Please contact the BOTW operations team on 0161 830 3888 or email The same contact should be used if you need to bring a personal assistant.
