Ad Hoc Records Takeover

Bar Takeover

13:00 - 01:00, Sat 15 Jan 2022

AdHoc Records join Ducie Street Warehouse again for another day of DJs curated from their roster and friends of the label as the second instalment of their new monthly residency at DSW. Expect DJ sets augmented with live production throughout the day.

Ad Hoc Records exists to celebrate music, not genres. With ever-broadening sonic horizons, ours is a home for music with soul. Established in 2017 with a mission to showcase the most exciting producers and DJs its founder Dave Burch had met in Manchester’s music scene to an international audience.

In its first four years, music from the label has been stocked in record stores as far afield as Japan and Australia, featured on Spotify and Apple Music editorial playlists and spun on the likes of BBC Radio 1/1Xtra/6 Music, NTS and Worldwide FM. The label has a monthly radio show on Reform Radio, and during lockdown hosted a showcase on the ‘United We Stream’ platform. As well as promoting parties in Manchester institutions Hidden, Night & Day and YES, they’ve also hosted label events in venues such as corner shops and canal boats. Having recently set up a management arm, the artists’ Ad Hoc represents have been released on labels such as Majestic Casual, stacked up millions of plays on streaming platforms and performed at sold-out gigs at venues such as Gorilla and a forthcoming showcase event at Manchester International Festival.
