Jon More (Coldcut) 45 Live Manchester
2nd December 2017 - 11:00 am till 3rd December 2017 - 4:00 am
Back once again the 45 Live crew are set to take over at Night and Day Café in Manchester’s Northern Quarter this December 2nd.
This time we present the legend that is Jon More who will be supported by and local create diggers Beatphreak, Paul Thornton, Phil Austin and Shaun Foran spinning 7″ classics into the small hours.
Jon More – one half of Coldcut and co-founder of the mighty Ninja Tune record empire – needs little introduction. A veteran of 80s Soul Weekenders and warehouse parties like Flim Flam he was harvesting crates for their wares whilst most other 45Live DJs were still at school. He also helped set up the pirate radio station KISS FM with Gordon Mac before teaming up with Matt Black to form Coldcut and their long-running mix show, Solid Steel.
The duo brought break beats and Acid House to the charts with their own creations whilst remixing Eric B & Rakim into Seven game-changing Minutes of Madness and giving the Godfather of Soul some payback. Being one of the hottest production teams of the late 80s dance explosion their success meant international travel and a chance to plunder all manner of rare records now at eye-watering prices for just a few dollars. It was here, with an eye for the obscure and an ear for the left foot selection that Jon honed a collection that stretches from African to Zither via Soul, Funk, Reggae, Rap, Salsa, Latin and all points in between.
Early bird tickets are available but are very limited. Tickets are available from Resident Advisor and Night and Day Cafe.
There are some Golden Tickets available for this event where if you buy one of these very limited tickets you will receive on the night a rare collectors 7″ with two tracks from DJ Format and Boca 45.
You can expect to hear some of the finest block rockin funk, soul, hip hop, boogaloo, latin, breaks and beats ever pressed on a 7”.
This is a monthly event with some pretty serious lineups to be announced. Keep it 45!
