Addison Groove set for Selective Hearing

And so it begins. Manchester’s always something of a clubbing wasteland in the immediate post-New Year aftermath, but now the listings are starting to fly in for what’s already looking like a particularly hectic February.

The month will start off in fine form, as one of the city’s more discerning nights has a particularly difficult to ignore, broken beat, electro-edged party starter lined up for its first event of the year. Previously Selective Hearing have drafted in the likes of Martyn, Kyle Hall, Kode 9, DJ Stingray, and George Fitzgerald to do the do, all unarguably cracking contemporary faces that are far from regulars in the region, 2012 looks set to follow suit.

Saturday February 4th sees the crew welcome none other than Addison Groove, AKA Headhunter, a chap perhaps most commonly associated with labels like Tectonic, 3024, Swamp81, 50 Weapons, and Hessle Audio. Joshua Brooks is the basement in question, and full details of the session are below, which also sees an appearance from hotly tipped techno-bass man Objekt, alongside another fresh face who has been turning heads thanks to releases on Numbers, with fans including Giles Peterson giving him the nod, Randomer. Two tracks from the main attraction are embedded beneath the following information to remind you what the fuss is about, meanwhile those after tickets need only click here, and all Facebook shenanigans can be monitored on the end of this link.
