Movement returns after its staggering debut in the summer with more bleeps, bass and breakdowns within Joshua Brooks. Bringing Kaisersdisco and a Funktion One rig down in July, Mark Santangelo announced his new party within Manchester with great success, packing the intimate venue to the rafters for an evening of funk licked house grooves.
Now the platform is there to translate a promising and eventful start into a lasting legacy within Manchester’s nightlife, and already the wheels are in progress to ensure realisation of Marks’ vision. If Kaiserdisco’s debut set in Manchester was to be a statement of intent, the next stage is an emphatic acclimation of where Movement is heading, with a bona fide international star at the helm of the party
This time the line-up is bolstered by none other than Argentinean firebrand Hernan Cattaneo, the international doyen touching down for his first set in Manchester in years. Blending mesmerising melody and gritty grooves has become Hernan’s signature, becoming the premier South American DJ and a global superstar to boot.
A legend in his hometown of Buenos Aries and the rest of the continent in the nineties, he was championed by Paul Oakenfold and his Perfecto imprint in the late nineties and quickly became a superstar beyond the south atlantic. Having released a slew of compilations for Renaissance and Perfecto, he represents the vanguard of DJing ability; super silky mixing and a glorious tenacity across genres.
Whether blending deep and melody drenched house music or strobe inducing techno, Hernan remains a pivotal figure within the global electronic music fraternity. This is the chance to witness him in the gloriously intimate confines of Joshua Brooks, backed up Funktion One sound. Dance music rarely gets so exciting.
