A true supergroup assembled especially for Red Bull Culture Clash, Made In Manchester assembles DJs and MCs from the city’s drum’n’bass and jungle scene, stretching right back to the genre’s birth in the mid-90s.
Host MC Dynamite is no stranger to this musical city: “I’m a product of clash culture, I grew up listening to Jaro Vs Travellers, Saxon vs Coxon, King Jammys vs….the list goes on. Manchester is a city I’ve performed in many times over the years, from the Lighthouse to the Warehouse project. It’s an honour and a privilege to be involved in what will be one of the city’s biggest events.”
