On Saturday 20th November, roots house producer, DJ and promoter Irfan Rainy gathered Manchester’s dancers, performers and music lovers together in the depths of the Northern Quarter for his Loft Party, celebrating 20 years of his involvement in the city’s scene.
Alongside the Community organiser’s educated soundtrack of salsa, jazz, broken beat, rare groove, disco and deep house, ravers enjoyed performances from contemporary New York dance group Mixed Movement and various impromptu creative collaborations. Among those included a very random – but very cool – moment of when beat boxer Jason Singh did his thing over a digereedoo played by hip-hop artist Baba Israel.
Here some images of what was an amazing night.
Next up is Community with Sean McCabe at Contact Theatre on Saturday 4 December. See you there!
