Coloursound Hits Manchester

Having gotten off to a sellout start first time round, Coloursound will once again come true on all their promises with another hefty line-up of talent, this time from a techno and house mould. This time round the northern powerhouse moves to Manchester’s Soundcontrol.

Kenny Larkin headlines – a man who’s colourful character always comes out in his seminal house and techno records and has done for years.  As well as being a stand-up comedian, Kenny is often cited as one of the most influential producers… ever.  Someone just as instrumental to the development of techno over the decades is Kevin Saunderson.  A member of the Belleville Three, Sauderson’s legacy is ever secured thanks to his membership of Inner City whose seminal hit ‘Good Life’ will never grow old. As well as on his own legendary techno label KMS, Saunderson releases on Planet E among many others.

Offering a lighter take on electronic music will be Lee Foss, the Hot Creations boss – alongside pal Jamie Jones – who has reinvented a certain strain of disco fuelled, vocal, sexy and slo-mo house music for labels like LA Culprit as well as his own and is a party starting DJ like few others today.   He plays all over the world from fabric to WMC as well as cool underground parties like Lo*Key in London.

And so to US deep experimenter Levon Vincent who’s smoky, basement aligned house and techno is perfect for late night dancing. His DJ diary takes him all over the world, whilst his records find homes on his own Novel Sound as well as connoisseur imprints like Underground Quality and Ostgut Ton.

Finally, it will be deepest house exponent Fred P AKA Black Jazz Consortium who completes the line-up.  Recording for a wide range of labels over the last 20 years – most notably Underground Quality headed by the legendary DJ Jus Ed – Fred P has gained a following of true deep house lovers the world over. Always touring the globe as a unique contributor to this genre, his albums and singles are always well received, as are his oh-so impressive DJ sets.

Aside from these big guns, Tom Craven and James Cotterill of Illusion Recordings, the house and techno spinning rebels that are Ketoloco; Si’Ke DJs, Zutekh DJs, PoleKatz, Burton Brothers and Higgy will all add some local flavours.
