ANTON STEVENS – DIRECTOR OF HIDDEN CLUB (MANCHESTER) is next in my line of men you should know about. He’s a music loving Mancunian born and bred, a Leeds University graduate, a techno dj, an events organiser and promoter, a club director, a blindfold-level nappy changer and a grafter who eats hard work for breakfast. He is the Director of Hidden Club in Manchester aka Anton Fitz (DJ) with a 360 understanding of clubbing from artist to promotion, marketing and events and he gives a deep insight into where his natural affinity to the job comes from and the behind the scenes graft required to take him from being a 13 year old schoolboy handing flyers out for his birthday party to maturing into a keen business man who can keep one of Manchester’s finest underground clubs running like clockwork even during the pandemic.
I am really looking forward to speaking on this panel today and watching the two episodes #Work and #Dress of Pandora’s Box featuring the award winning Joan Bakewell. Event starts at 15.20 sharp!!
This #BlackHistoryMonth, MCR:Live caught up with their favourite person DJ Paulette to chat through her own musical heroes and the ways in which Black music & culture has helped to shape Manchester.
It’s 2018 – and we’ve already hit the ground running. In this year that celebrates and highlights the centenary of women’s suffrage, I am proud to be featured amongst the 25 STRONG portraits in the ‘Suffragette City’ exhibition that has been curated by media powerhouse and Manchester Digital Music Archive co-founder Alison Surtees and photographed by Elspeth Moore.
My friend, Producer Mark Ovenden, posted this about his ground breaking show ‘Loud and Proud’ on his Facebook page a while ago. I am honoured to have been chosen to front this show and thankful for having had the experience of working for Radio One.
From secret pubs in Salford to underground club nights, a new exhibition captures Manchester’s gay nightlife from the 70s through to the 90s
2nd FLOOR – Is Manchester turning its back on music? This is the second event in the Floor electronic music talks and discussions panel series. The event starts at 7.00pm sharp at Lock 91, 9 Century Street, Manchester, M3 4QL. Admission is free.
We return to Texture for the 2nd FLOOR. This time, we bring the the two often opposing worlds of music and property development together and ask “Can Manchester be the blueprint for a city where we break new ground without forgetting our roots?”
