So Flute, KAT Records and No Fakin’ present Amir

As Manchester once again gets engulfed in the Rave season, 2022NQ zip up and wade in with another series in their soulful attack on the mediocre and mainstream offerings found elsewhere in the City. Teaming up with Manchester's ‘So Flute’ party protagonists, ‘KAT Records’ and ‘No Fakin’ out of Liverpool, the combined team will be laying down righteous grooves across the spectrum of Black music and joining the dots between Jazz, Soul, Hip Hop, Disco, & House for the more discerning of ears and dancers. Joining them and heading up the bill will be US based DJ, producer and black music historian, Amir.

It has been a 10 year hiatus for all fans of the crate digging supremo since he last visiting the Rainy city but with dope releases of his dopest finds being shared via the ‘one track’ mixes series [Kon and Amir], BBE compilations, and his own 180 Proof label, he certainly has been no slouch.


A combined force of Manchester and Liverpool promoters and Black music enthusiasts will be supporting. 


‘So Flute’ have firmly established themselves as part of the Manchester underground resistance, with their solid musical programming from residents Danuka, Bolts, Yadava and Baloo and guest selections including Detroit's finest, Andres their take on Soul, Disco, House and Jazz will be in perfect backdrop to the proceedings


‘KAT Records’, little is known about this label except that for the 7 years they have been releasing sought after re-edits and remixes from the likes of Ashley Beadle, Rahaan, Greg Wilson, Moplen, Ole Smokey plus many more across their KAT and KAT45 labels. Protectors and purveyors of rare and lost vinyl treasures they will be bringing some hidden gems to the dance floor.


Last but by no means least are ‘No Fakin’, Liverpool DJ's and promoters with 20 years under their belt. They have been putting on the finest Hip Hop jams for 2 decades giving Liverpool debuts to pioneers like Kool Herc, Madlib, Peanut Butter Wolf, The Pharcyde, Platinum Pied Pipers and many more as well as taking their 4 turntable, all encompassing DJ sets all over Europe.
