C4E started as a free entry night in the Kazimier Garden back in summer ’16, hosting locally overlooked club music enthusiasts (Faux Queens, Alec Tronik) alongside like minds from elsewhere (Taystii, Hesska, Kleft). Since then Cartier’s All-Stars have grown to include an array of producers, performers, artists, DJs and friends all stood in roughly the same spot at roughly the same time.
A shared love for new currents in global club music with a bias towards the progressive remains the raison d’être. C4E Social Functions continue to platform not only these lesser-heard styles, but aim to posit womxn, LGBTQ+ people, and people of colour more front and centre stage as the progenitors of these genres of tomorrow.
Their monthly slot is an exploration of partially-reconstructed club tracks, bootlegs, edits, sound system pop, industrial grime, bassy bangers, anti-bangers and ofc the ambient book-ends… All brought to you with passion, affection, and a serious expression. You are welcome!
This month George \m/ and M T Hall are joined by Abena, representing Manchester collective All Hands On Deck. Get Saturday ready with all things club, footwork and fun!
