After a long 9-month absence BackToFront has put down its backpack and is back for business on SATURDAY 20th SEPTEMBER. To kick off an exciting new chapter in our history we are launching a new monthly residency EVERY 3rd SATURDAY of the month at Manchester’s sickest new venue, Spektrum. As with all venues/spaces we use, this space is a little bit special. It will boast an amazing combined Funktion 1 and Phazon soundsystem, an incredible wall-to-roof-to-wall madrix powered light installation (similiar to Watergate’s in Berlin but more sophisticated), an intimate 400 capacity and a late licence til 5am. What more could you ask for???
So to usher in this new era and to kick things off with a bang, we at BackToFront have raised the bar yet again by assembling some of the freshest, most talented DJs and Artists from around the globe over the coming months, and none come much fresher or more talented than this month’s opening guest, Guillaume & the Coutu Dumonts or as his friends like to call him Guillaume Coutu Dumont. Yes, its one person called Guillaume and he hails from Montreal in Canada. Since setting up his Musique Risquee label in Canada, Guillaume inevitably packed his bags and bongo’s and moved to Berlin to progress his music career. Since landing there 2 years ago things have really moved on releasing a string of amazing releases on many of Europe’s most respected and forward thinking house/techno labels, from his incredible album on Circus Company to his tracks/remixes on Crosstown Rebels, Oslo, Karat, Mutek and Floppy Funk. Guillaume has many disguises; Egg (Mutek_rec, Karat, Floppy Funk), Luci (Mutek_rec, Morris Audio), Chic Miniature (Raummusik, Musique Risquée), Flabbergast (Mutek_rec), but his solo project as Guillaume & the Coutu Dumonts is a special blend of funk, house, techno, gospel, swing and afro-beat not to be missed.
For our house warming party Guillaume will be playing a special 2 hour live set, so if you love grooving, forward thinking house music at its finest come check him out as it don’t get much better than this! Guillaume doesn’t play in the UK very often so catch him while you can! Accompanying Guillaume for the night will be BackToFront originals Tom Craven and Adam Shelton and Dirty Disco’s Dave Sandford.
Demand for this event is already very high, so if you want to guarantee entry to this event please get down early (doors open 22:00) or buy a ticket at www.skiddle.com. For any info please do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected]
