With summer finally round the corner, we are planning an all day event held on the second bank holiday weekend in May in the courtyard of the Angel Pub.
There will be Record stalls, Vintage & Arts/Craft stalls, Live Art, a yummy BBQ done by the Angel, some very special Sunglasses on sale, a very talented face painter, and of course it wouldn't be Ensemble without MUSIC!!
So we've carefully selected some artists who we know will be perfect to play the soundtrack to the Ensemble Market Party!!!
- Annabel Fraser (Hupendi Musiki Wangu)
- Rick Nicholls - (Brain Machine Radio)
- Michael Holland (Haxan Presents)
- Macca (Soup Kitchen)
For the Record Fair, we have invited some of Manchester's avid vinyl collectors who will each bring along an intimate selection of their records for you all to have a nosy at! Here's who will be involved so far:
- Leon Paddock
- Peter Mangalore
- Asher Jones
- Rick Nicholls
- Michael Holland
- Andrew Macca
- Sameed Alexander Rezayan
- Rikki Humphrey
If anyone is interested in being part of the record fair, please get in touch as we could make room for you :-)
On top of all the above, we are encouraging producers & DJ's to bring along demos/mix tapes of their own work, to simply share what they're up to and hopefully gain opportunities from it.
Please feel free to get involved, we'll be providing a device for people to have a quick listen.
We would like this event to be a platform for people to show off their creative talents, while enjoying a nice parteh in the sunshine - so if anyone wants to share their work, whether you're a DJ/Producer, Artist, Photographer, Graphic Designer etc you can come along, mingle and hopefully make some good contacts!
The party doesn't stop there. . . .
We are very pleased to welcome one of Moscow's finest - Maksim Panfilov AKA Killapitch for his UK debut.
Maksim has been Djing since 1998' - and has played alongside the likes of Vakula, Dj Minx, Terrence Parker, Anton Zap, Dices, Klepalov and Hoopa.
He is also part of the collective Untitled Gear, having released on Croatian label "Fields & Forests" and Moscow based "Udacha".
With his sets ranging from Acid House, Deep House, Techno and Electro through to Disco and on to the more experimental sounds, Maksims sets are carefully put together and are full of soul and energy - we are extremely excited to finally see this guy in action.
Supporting Killapitch we have our Ensemble regulars and close friends:
