Sam Mitcham is one of the guys behind Captured Festival in Ibiza, one half of Digital Society, an ex Godskitchen resident DJ and the man responsible for the Wax Format events. He is also a guy who understands trance music; what works in a club. Running at a relaxed 132bpm, Manchester Calling is dark, moody and powerful stuff. No cheesy one-finger riffs here – in fact what we have is a wicked moog-esque sequenced and saturated synth-line which filters and bursts with precise envelope and FX programming. An interesting inclusion fact-fans, is the track was written around a sample of the infamous, strange and alien like howl a strong wind makes through the architecture of the Manchester Hilton skyscraper – or Beetham tower as it’s formally known. Curious tales from the UK’s capital of dance music.
