Maybe the real underground in Manchester in the last couple of years has been the drum and bass scene. Indie may grab the headlines but the club and dance scenes have always been a key part of the narrative from Guy Called Gerald’s genius groundbreaking tracks all those years ago to Bloc2Bloc work in propagating the modern drum and bass scene and its circuit of pirate radio, online soundcloud and party scene. The virus may have kiboshed some of this action but the scene is still fervent.
One of the rising stars is IndiKa who bucks the male dominated scene with her deep knowledge of the music and her skill at honing her craft down to perception. Her sets are full of the thrilling rhymes and bass shapes of the form – a fluid and thrilling trip into the future music.
