This month Beat Beneath is showcasing the Manchester/Leeds/Cologne based Mutualism collective who’ve been releasing music and putting on events in clubs and other spaces across the North of England for the last few years. Representing are members Clemency and BFTT with an hour-long b2b session.
After spending her formative years in the power electronics and noise scene, as a DJ Clemency weaves together dark club music, heavy techno, abrasive trap and broken breakbeats and hosts a monthly slot on Manchester’s Limbo Radio showcasing this alongside always-on-point discussions of culture and politics in the club scene and wider world. She will make her production debut with Leeds’ Leftovers label in early 2019.
With recent releases including a 12 on the Whities Blue series alongside Upsammy and tracks on the always excellent Cong Burn and TT labels, and DJ appearances on NTS Radio and clubs around the North and London, BFTT is another DJ and producer to keep an eye on. His productions and selections are anchored by UK bass, techno and club music but fluidly balance everything from the more experimental sides of electronic music to straight-up pop belters.
If you’re around Sheffield next Friday, Mutualism are representing at Hatch alongside Rian Treanor & Karl D'Silva - details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/665716077158520/

Subcity Radio is proud to present a series of programming to celebrate the life and work of one of the most incredible musicians that ever lived. Despite passing tragically young, Arthur managed to produce a vast catalogue of work spanning disco, avant-garde and many more. From spending time in the Talking Heads to recording Buddist chants with Allen Ginsberg, no career in music is more unique.
The series of programming will begin with the screening of the film Wild Combination (2008) at the CCA and will culminate in the broadcast of a special performance of selected works by Peter Broderick
