Tussle are back this month, and the night that delivered such guests as Terry Francis (Fabric), Patrice Baumel and Jef K (Silvernetwork, One Recordings) have left their secret lair in the Northern Quarter and moved into the depths of Oxford Road at one of the newest and most intimate venues for clubbing in the city; Underdog. This Friday 27th September sees their biggest party to day with non other than Rush Hour's Tom Trago, supported by Play It Down DJs.
Tom Trago (Rush hour) will grace the decks to play his very own genre jumping Detroit-meets-disco sounds through the whopping Funktion One speakers at Underdog. Tom Trago is known for his incredible genre crossing beats and tunes that are showcased in the plethora of top releases he has produced in recent years. Described on Resident Advisor as quite simply "the Tom Trago sound", it has no boundaries and fears no man. He showed his quality in the summer of 2012 with the killer disco beats and funky melodies of 'Use Me Again' which had dance floors flexing and grooving from the UK to the US and everywhere in between. Supporters included Radioslave and Detroit techno heavyweight Carl Craig. His DJ sets shouldn't be hidden in the shadow of his production values though; you can catch his regular sets at fabric and Berhgain, and if he's not there in his home town of Amsterdam at Trouw smashing the place to pieces and pulling on the disco strings like a puppeteer towing the line between musical insanity and genre crossing genius.
Friday night promises to be a supreme start to Tussle's monthly tenancy at everyone's favourite Underdog. Support on the night comes from warehouse party throwing pioneers Play It Down, whose recent events have brought a much needed twist to the club scene in Manchester, taking the city and its club goers back to the days of turning abandoned warehouses into a place to lose your mind, but for one night only.
Tussle runs from 10.30m until 4am at Underdog on New Wakefield Street just off Oxford Road. Tickets are available still for a mere £6.50 and chances are with this line up at such an intimate venue, they will sell out, so get it locked down as it's worth every last penny.
