Background info on Speakers / Artists involved on the night:
Marshall Jefferson is a main figure of the Chicago House scene and producer of early House anthems, like "Move Your Body". Jefferson is one of the first people to use the Roland TB 303 to create an ‘Acid House Track’ along with DJ Pierre.
Luke Solomon has been a fundamental part of the dance music scene for well over a decade as part of the legendary Classic Recordings with Derrick Carter and as part of the band ‘Freaks’.
Adamski is best known for his international No.1 smash 'Killer' launching Seal, and playing a major role in the rave explosion of the late 80's / 90's is introducing a new music concept: 3STEP. And of course for his Acid House tracks "N-R-G" and "Killer".
2014 will see Bulletdodge release the debut album from label boss Gareth Whitehead. The album will not be the usual 4/4 house and techno affair but rather a reflection on the history of the genres. These musical mediations see Gareth pay homage to the industry pioneers who not only inspired him as a producer and DJ but have also shaped the musical direction of Bulletdodge. Each track involves collaboration and sees Gareth working with the originator of techno, Juan Atkins; the godfather of house, Marshall Jefferson; the legendary house vocalist Robert Owens and the Brooklyn innovators Lenny Dee and Frankie Bones. The album also includes appearances from newer talents and long-term Bulletdodge collaborators Carl Cox, Pig & Dan, X-Press 2, Darren Emerson, Detroit Grand Pubah’s, Space Djz’s, Tom Taylor and Werner Niedermeier. To celebrate the album, Bulletdodge will also be releasing a series of singles, a remix album and a DJ mix containing a selection of the tracks from the project.

Founded by current CEO John Breakell, life began as Spirit Studios in 1980. Located on Tariff Street, central Manchester, Spirit was a small complex comprising of 4 small rehearsal rooms and a single 4-track recording studio.
The Smiths were the first band through Spirit’s doors, and other rising bands of the time followed, including Simply Red, 808 State, and New Order. Bill Wyman paid a visit, as did many other famous faces. In fact, The Stone Roses recorded in Spirit Studios the very demo tape that secured their first record deal - that tape can be seen on our walls today!
In 1984, recognising an increasing demand for professionally trained sound engineers within the music industry, Spirit Studios became the School of Sound Recording, the first audio engineering and music production school in the UK, and one of the first in the world.
The School of Sound Recording quickly gained a healthy reputation within the music industry for producing well trained, professional graduates and the business thrived and continued to grow through the 80’s and into the 90’s, offering new courses and moving into a wider range of subject areas, not to mention also part of a brilliant, underground cultural venue for after-parties, diverse music and rising DJs.
In 2004, we outgrew the Tariff St site (now home to Kosmonaut) and relocated to our current premises in Ardwick, on the edge of the city centre. Shortly after the relocation, we began offering degree courses with our university partners. By this time, the company was known simply as ‘SSR’ to reflect the changing breadth of our courses and delivery.
In 2009, SSR was recognised with a Manchester Evening News ‘Business of The Year’ award, and embarked on the first steps to expanding the company into new countries and territories.
Still recognising trends and reacting with unique areas of creative education, including undergraduate programmes in 3D film and games development, all our campuses provide students with an excellent array of leading creative subjects, guest lectures and master classes combined with work experience programmes, career guidance and mentoring.
