Ahead of their second night at Night & Day in Manchester this Friday, resident selector ATiké (also one of the Me Gusta crew) provides a special Groovement selection.
On the night, expect italo disco, city pop, synth wave, Balearic and jazz fusion. Tickets over on Skiddle for £3 now.
The elusive Pan Amsterdam landed in Manchester a couple of days back for what was only his second gig – but not his first rodeo. Leron Thomas, the real life aka of the drawling lyricist, has his own rich musical history, some of which we dive into over the course of our interview which we chose to conduct (wisely or not, you decide) over food in Chinatown.
Pan Am recruited Tacoma, Washington beatmaker/producer Mr.Shn (pron. ‘martian’) to provide the soundtrack for the tour, big shouts to him plus Matt at Def Pressé for facilitating our meeting, and all the people who bought wax at the gig after succumbing to my sales patter.
Join Us as I steal his sweet and sour sauce, chat career, his good friend Malik Ameer Crumpler, thatmanmonkz, Madison Washington, opportunities, Bilal, Erykah and corruption in jazz.

Multi-faceted Manchester creative Katbrownsugar has been enjoying increased success over the past few months. She released the single Turn It Up with Woddy Green as part of the Pink Trees EP on Kush Records at the end of 2017, increased her DJ dates around the city and holds down a consistently excellent show on MCR Live. Mixcloud awarded her twice in the Best Online Music Show category in 2018's Online Radio Awards, both as Rising Star and best Hip Hop, RnB and Afrobeats show, describing her as one of Manchester's most exciting talents. She's also been featured by BBC Radio 1Xtra and the MOBOs. Kat's MCR Live show has empowered not only her own broadcasting flow, but her keenness and ability to share other creative vibes emerging from the city. She's also begun a show on the illustrious NTS Radio with colleague Jack Duckham.
Today sees Kat's face launch Foot Asylum and Nike's Next Generation Female Creatives campaign for the Nike AF1 Jester XX - see more on that here: https://www.footasylum.com/lowdown-just-dropped-nike-af1-jester-xx-/
Listen now to Kat's second mix for Groovement, following her Maltesers selection last year. It portays perfectly Kat's dreamy, beat laden, neo-soul style.
