Air London was started up in 2007 by David Oyston as a way for his friends to search and find gigs in London. Six years later and Air London prides itself on being one of the best independent agencies in the world for electronic music, and especially house and techno. The DJs and producers that the agency represent are some of the most talented rising stars in the business, and Exhibit are showcasing this on Saturday night with Jordan Peak, Alex Celler and Death on the Balcony at one of Manchester's favourite clubs, Gorilla. 

Exhibit have been continuously providing not only massive headliners, but subtly intelligent bookings, leaving us desperate for the next announcement after each party they host. Previous DJs to don the headphones at Exhibit included Butch, Nick Curly and the recent party at 2022NQ with Slow Hands. On Saturday 12th October they return to the cavernous and insatiable dance floor of Gorilla to bring a musical conglomerate that will have the crowds chasing and dancing with their shadows to the barrage of tech house beats and flashes of light like there is no tomorrow. 

First up on the bill is one of the UK's finest up and coming acts, Death on the Balcony. The duo are known for their diverse style which can change between disco and deep house, to a house and deep techno sound, all dependant on how they judge the mood and the crowd. They often provide a few head turning tracks to keep the crowd on its toes whilst ensuring their sound is still soulful, encapsulating and warm. 

Alex Celler

Alex Celler returns to Manchester to join the party 

Alex Celler is a man who is no stranger to Manchester clubs. Having played a variety of the city's best parties in his time he will undoubtably be able to create a stir in his usual style this Saturday at Gorilla, digging out a cocktail of tunes including old rarities and brand new hits.  A deep and energetic sound from a man who knows how Manchester likes to party. 

The third and final addition to this incredible Saturday night line up is Jordan Peak. A versatile and interesting addition to the British scene, he carefully ebbs and flows between house and techno with an ability to put a fresh twist on old classics, giving him elevated status as one of the best rising stars around. Supporters include Pete Tong, and DJ Mag who nominated him for 'Best British Breakthrough DJ' at the mags Best of British Awards.

I can't think of any reasons why you wouldn't be buying tickets for this one. A stellar line up of up and coming stars ready to smash the glass ceiling and bring a party of monumental proportions to Gorilla with one of the city's best promotions, Exhibit.

Tickets are £8 advance, and the night runs from 11pm - 4am.
