Great Exhibition of the North: Lauren Laverne's Great Northern Soundtrack

Róisín Murphy

Sage One

Róisín Murphy performs her hip-twitching, pleasure-centre-stimulating music, stemming from her new music produced by Baltimore maverick musician/producer/DJ Maurice Fulton, full of the unadulterated, but deeply warped funk which Maurice has honed over his decades of dancefloor experience.

Her lyrics are intense, exploratory, probing into dark parts of her own and the listener’s psyche – all the while working on the immediate, endorphin-stimulating dancefloor level.

As one half of the Unabombers, his DJ and Production duo, Luke Cowdrey has been at the very epicentre of some of Manchester’s most iconic events for the best part of a quarter of a century. Electric Chair was the dictionary definition of a ‘proper’ club night for ‘proper’ clubbers…attracting a broad spectrum of music and punters alike, in fact, no-one would argue if you were to say the night became the stuff of Mancunian clubland legend.

Homoelectric followed suit with its strong manifesto and all-encompassing attitude to musical policy and clientele, attracting a passionate following from the get-go. Then in 2007 The Unabombers they took their stay free musical vision to Croatia, where their Electric Elephant festival saw them provide 8 years of under the stars magical parties.

It may sound like the biggest cliché in the book, but Luke Unabomber really does play music right across the board and then some, taking in an awe-inspiring range of genres and grooves, moods and melodies – some of which you may not have even heard of yourself. So zip up, pitch it up and prepare to take a musical trip…
