Eat Your Own Ears, one of London’s most revered promoters and labels, are taking over The Warehouse Project on 19 November, bringing the likes of Four Tet, Floating Points and Overmono to the cinematic confines of Depot Mayfield.
Starting life 20 years ago, running iconic nights at Brick Lane’s 93 Feet East, Eat Your Own Ears still throws some of the best parties in the capital, showcasing new and established artists from their own label and a raft of other independents. For their 20th anniversary, they’re bringing the party to Manchester, partnering with The Warehouse Project, and taking over all three stages at Depot Mayfield.
Headlining the Depot, Four Tet will perform alongside Floating Points – a tried-and-tested twin punch comprising two of the UK’s finest electronic exports. TSHA and I. Jordan will also grace the Depot, with live sets from hard-edged ravers Overmono, Swedish house star DJ Seinfeld and the mercurially talented Leon Vynehall.
The jazz-inflected disco sounds of Folamour and the anthemic floor fillers of Daphni take centre stage in Concourse, with Joy Orbison, GRAMMY-nominated producer Jayda G, The xx’s Romy, Barry Can’t Swim and Aletha joining closely behind.
Bridging the worlds of techno, house and rock music, Erol Alkan heads up the Archive stage alongside Jessy Mitsu, Two Shell, Ela Minus, and Gracie T b2b Djpriya. Appearing live on that stage will be Hackney rapper John Glacier and producer/singer Elkka, from whom you can expect a cross pollination of house, electronica and dreamy pop.
Speaking about the event, Tom Baker, Founder of Eat Your Own Ears, said:
“Ever since Eat Your Own Ears hosted an event at The Warehouse Project at the Boddingtons Brewery back in 2006, EYOE has very much enjoyed being part of curating some epic and thrilling events, seeing the WHP grow and develop into something very special.”
“There is always a fantastic level of expectation and buzz when the lineups are revealed, so I’m very proud to celebrate Eat Your Own Ears’ anniversary with another eclectic and brilliant lineup that brings together so many of the artists EYOE has worked with over the years alongside some exciting new artists, that is sure to be a truly joyous and magical night in Manchester.”
