The Meat Free brand are at it again, this time welcoming some of techno’s darker acts to the city, Ancient Methods and SΛRIN. The Waveform Transmitter‘s Ambs Howard gets ready for some serious auditory annihilation.
The girls at Meat Free are celebrating their fifth year in business and have teamed up with Berlin based label Aufnahme + Wiedergabe, to host one of their strongest line ups to date. They are renowned for throwing unforgettable parties in Manchester venues, having previously booked techno heavyweights such as; Ben Sims, Luke Slater, and James Ruskin. Not to mention recently hosting room three of Warehouse Project.
Headlining is Berlin DJ and producer Ancient Methods, who started making waves on the underground scene back in 2007. The dark industrial style he has adopted is heavily influenced by his roots, which he remains true to when frequently returning to his iconic hometown.
Ancient Methods (Michael Wollenhaupt) is known for sampling vocals within his production, these are often as dark and sinister as his kick drums. We can expect much of the same during his set, providing the perfect sound for the stripped back, intimate warehouse, The White Hotel.
Signed to the label ‘Aufnahme + Wiedergabe’ and also headlining is fellow Berliner, SARIN (live). Anticipate a style very much similar to Ancient Methods, ensuring consistency throughout. SARIN’s production often has an EBM influence with dark synth basslines, which is reflected in his latest 12” LP – Current Conflict.
Warming up proceedings are Meat Free residents, Aalice, Blasha & Allatt and Lucy Ironmonger who are guaranteed to deliver. Not forgetting its BYOB, (Bring your own beer) this one is not to be missed!
There are a still handful of first release tickets available at £17 +BF. You can purchase those, here.
