Work Them THIS FRIDAY at Kraak

Work Them returns to Kraak this actual Friday (14th), for a non-Valentines evening of music that is nonetheless full of groove, feeling and perhaps the occasional smudge of romance... In terms of record selection, nobody does this sound better than our pal Patrick Ryder of Piccadilly Records, special guest for this edition of the party.

Patrick's all wax mix ('with the ruff stuff left in') can be found below and covers future classics from the likes of Andrew Ashong and Greg Beato through to irresistible, classic releases courtesy of Prince and DJ Nature. It's a snip at just over an hour long, and a free download too...
 You can also find John Loveless' latest mix here, another free download featuring music from East India Youth, Special Request, Soulphiction and more. Patrick, John and new Work Them pal Dan Coultas will be taking it in turns and pushing things forward through to the finish.

Work Them kicks off at Kraak from 11PM through till 4AM this Friday night into Saturday morning, and admission on the door is just £5 all night. Alternatively, you can grab a ticket on Skiddle in advance. Either way, let us know you're coming or direct any questions to our Facebook event.

Either way, wrap up warm and make your way to the floor.

Work Them at Kraak with John Loveless, Dan Coultas and Patrick Ryder (Piccadilly Records)

Work Them returns to it's original home, Kraak, for a no-nonsense, eclectic dance floor party on Friday February 14th. If you need to remember the date, it's also basically exactly the middle of the month, right?

Your usual John Loveless will be joined by new Work Them pal Dan Coultas, not to mention Piccadilly Records' own Patrick Ryder. As one of the dance music buyers at the North's finest record shop, in many ways, Patrick is the unassuming gatekeeper of solid, worthy grooves. Anyone that caught him playing with John and Stop Making Sense on New Years Eve at Islington Mill will attest to his superior selections, as indeed will anyone whose wandered into Piccadilly Records itself. And if you haven't, here he is in action for The Vinyl Factory last year, picking some largely local favourites...

Patrick will also have a mix ready for us next week in anticipation of the evening's entertainment, but in the meantime, following on from December's somewhat more melancholy tinged selection, John Loveless gets back in the dancefloor driver's seat with the usual hour and a bit of recent picks, featuring Paranoid London, Eat India Youth, Legowelt and even some mystery musical meat... Available as a free download below.

We kick off at 11PM on 14/2, at Kraak, just off Stevenson Square, and gwan till 4. It's just £5 OTD all night long, and we'll be putting a few tickets on Skiddle before the night itself too. You can let us know you're coming on Facebook, and follow Work Them on Twitter.

See you on the floor.

Work Them into 2014

Hello, and a very belated Happy New Year from Work Them. We had an incredible time at Islington Mill on New Year's Eve for their Future Party, as anyone who stuck with us and Stop Making Sense gone 6AM (and Lord knows plenty of you did), will attest. You can see some photos of the interplanetary debauchery, courtesy of Preston is my Paris, right here.

We have a few firm plans for 2014, and a few looser ones too, some of which are something of a departure. That starts with the first Work Them party proper of 2014, at Kraak Gallery, 15th February, from 11PM-4AM... More details to come soon. In the meantime, John Loveless plays his monthly residency at Kosmonaut this Friday, 17th January, from 9PM. It's free, and you can find him in the basement. It's not as ominous as it sounds.
