Gorilla nightclub in Manchester has released its line up for the autumn/ winter seasons ahead.
Nestled between arches under Oxford Road Train Station, Manchester’s Gorilla nightclub is billed as a haven for lovers of forward-thinking music and immersive club nights.
Mixing up local talents with a carefully curated mix of international talents, the venue boasts a lighting and D&B audiotechnik sound system as well as hazers, smoke machines, sleek lasers, LED tubes and more sleek production that ‘sinks you deep into another dimension’ each weekend.
Local icons The Warehouse Project are regular collaborators who appreciate Gorilla’s big room but intimate feel, while fellow local promoters Kaluki started at Gorilla and have now gone on to make a global mark.
The next couple of months feature a mix of the best names from house, bass, techno, disco, drum and bass, and plenty in between. One of the most anticipated events is a huge 25th anniversary party for Metalheadz, Goldie’s definitive drum and bass label and one of dance music’s most important collectives. He plays with a selection of guests from his close-knit crew on the 27th.
