For clubbing purists in whatever their chosen genre, there is always an unquenchable thirst for an environment where the music takes precedent over everything else, an environment where people get lost in the moment, they aren’t thinking about the next week, the next day or even the next hour. They simply allow the music to take them on a journey and for those hours in the darkness of a club they are part of something, an experience that eclipses anything and everything else in the world.
The desire to create something with this effect has resulted in a new brand, ‘Solar’, entering the Manchester music scene. The brainchild of a consortium of DJs, producers and promoters all from Manchester who have been inspired by everything they have listened to, read and experienced over their years in the industry. From Detroit, Chicago and New York to the rise of German and European influences and not forgetting the lasting memories of the White Isle, all of this culminating in what ’ Solar’ is in its inception and will continue to be.
Season 1 of ‘Solar’ will concentrate on Techno, four events, one a month from September to December, hosting some of the scenes most credible acts headlining events supported by some of Manchester’s finest local talent. The first 4 headliners hail from some of the most respected labels out there; Desolat Music Group, Cocoon Recordings and Cecille Records. With the Manchester support coming from brands such as Disco Electronica, Data Transmission, Recore Records, Sequential Records and Mute.
