This NEW YEARS EVE BackToFront are teaming up with GEEK to bring you a special one-off New Years Eve party in the basement of an old-school Castlefield Warehouse. Forget the same old venues, huge entrance fees and drinks prices; this New Years Eve we plan to throw an anti-credit crunch NYE party in a new amazing location, playing amazing house and techno. We’re not about superstars, super egos, and super prices, just a great party like only BackToFront can do!
I here you ask? Tut tut tut,... it’s very special and a secret!!! It’s called The Engine Room and it’s certainly got our cogs turning. We can’t give away too many details at the moment, but all we'll say is that it’s located in the Castlefield area of Manchester in one of the best industrial spaces we’ve ever found. Think old-school Berlin style warehouse you can walk home from (if you live in Manchester) and you'll be close! We’ll announce details of the venue location on the day via email, recorded message (0785-88-77-800), text and on facebook and myspace. So please don’t forget to leave your email addresses and mobile numbers when purchasing a ticket.
The line up?
To kick things off we have fresh-faced Geek residents, Phuss, warming up the party. Formed earlier this year, these two frisky lil buggers have been honing their skills around Manchester and are ready to unleash themselves on you before Big Ben bangs his bell. Next up are BackToFront residents, Protocol, who are Tom Craven and Adam Proctor. Both DJ’s have been shaking the coolest dance floors throughout the UK and further afield for the last few years but have recently joined forces to create something altogether new. Anyone who’s had chance to check out one of their sets of late will know exactly what I’m talking about.
After that we’ve an extra special someone to inject a little ‘style‘ in to the evening... yes, it’s the one and only, Matthew Styles! Having helped set up the pioneering Crosstown Rebels label and the legendary Stink and DigYourOwnRave parties in London, Matt has now upped sticks from his London crew and set up camp in Berlin to progress and evolve his own musical journey. Joining forces with current luminaries such as Pier Bucci, Dinky, Jamie Jones and Tobi Neumann, Matt is making huge noises with his own music at the moment on labels inc. Horizontal, Crosstown Rebels and Diamonds & Pearls whilst being possibly one of the best but most underrated DJs you are likely to hear. We are all extremely excited about getting Matt to come back and play after producing arguably the best set at BackToFront when hosted at the seminal CAST skate shop parties. If you don't believe us check out Matt's Rebel Podcast @ www.crosstownrebels.com.
Completing the line-up is our good friend from over’t pennies, Frenchy, making his long awaited debut for BackToFront. Frenchy has been a huge player in the Leeds scene on and off the pitch over the last 10+ years, starting up the legendary Mad Hatters party back in the late 90s and becoming a much loved regular guest at some of the UKs best parties, from BackToBasics to Below. If you’re over in Leeds anytime soon check out his new Digital Underground parties starting on the first Fridays of the month. Not to be missed!
We have an extra special surprise guest playing late on, so be sure to hang around or come over late on. But we promise you won’t be disappointed.
So, to put it mildly this will be an extra special one-off NYE party to end all NYE parties with a wicked line-up in an awesome, unique space. BUT the most amazing thing about it is the price… TEN English pounds. That’s right, it’s only a TENNER! Along with cheap entry, we are also keeping all drink prices lower than Jodie Marsh’s neckline, so start spreading… the word! Tell all your friends, tell all your family, tell anyone that’ll listen and get them all to come along cos this is gonna be one night that promises to go off with a… BOOM!!!!
