This week Manchester is in for a treat.
Heres a quick Interview and more information about the event.
Please introduce yourself.
Hello, I am Series:One and I am a DnB DJ/promoter, sound engineer and masters student based in Manchester.
Manchester at present has some great drum and bass club nights.
What will your new night bring to the city?
It definitely does. I’d like to think I’ll be bringing a breath of fresh air to the city with Acetate. I love the deep rolling 2-step tech and there isn’t enough of it in Manchester (in my opinion anyways haha), so I’ll be looking to push that side of DnB up here. Obviously the night is vinyl focused, so I’m hoping that people out there will appreciate and connect with that angle as well!
Do you feel that you are competing with other promotors in the city?
I think I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t competing with any of the other promoters. But that’s the nature of the game I guess. What I love about DnB is that it’s not about who you are, it’s about the music and how people connect with that music, so the competition doesn’t really phase me personally.
Why did you want to start a drum and bass night?
It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a good few years now, but have never really had the cash to do so until recently. I also wanted to do it as a way to get myself on the map, to show people I’m not messing about and to show Manchester what I think the city is missing out on, DnB spectrum wise anyways.
What can Dnb fans expect on the night?
A good load of tech, breaks and a damn good party. I love a good party and DLR & Gusto are a killer combo that will make sure the vibes are running high on the night.
Any further events in 2015?
Nothing set in stone yet, I’ve got some ideas of the kind of parties I’d like to do, DJ’s I want to book etc… But it really comes down to money, if next week is a success then there will definitely be a 2015 for Acetate. I know that’s probably not what people want to hear, but it’s the honest truth. I think people forget about how much it actually costs to do something like this. I’m also not 100% certain about my future in Manchester, I have some contacts in London that might be able to help me get some work in a recording studio, so we may see an Acetate crop up in London. Just got to ride the wave and see where life takes you!
The stakes are high, the competition is fierce, but I’m ready to take it on and show Manchester what’s up. Fingers crossed we will be back in 2015 either in Manchester, London, or somewhere, who knows!?!
Many thanks Series:One.
