Me Gusta x Shifting Spheres: Our City with Dred Erik

Me Gusta and Shifting Spheres have been thriving in a bustling Manchester scene for some time now.

Me Gusta are a multicultural collective. Through music, dance, unity and art they form events to expose these rich identities from continent to continent creating a basis for all to connect as one.

Their friends and collaborators over at Shifting Spheres are a driving force for providing DJ training programs for women, transgender and non-binary people.

To celebrate August Bank Holiday weekend, Melodic Distraction came together with the two forces for a socially-distanced get together at the lovely YES Manchester. Sets came from a line-up of great DJs curated by the two Manchester collectives.

The whole event was geared towards raising money for the two collectives’ nominated charities; Kids of Colour and Manchester Refugee Support Network. Find out where to support them in the links below.

Beat maker and DJ, DRED ERIC has been churning out a stream of killer beat tapes over the past few years. We’re excited to catch his skills as a DJ having enjoyed his relentless Soundcloud based output.

Slap bang in the middle of the day’s proceedings, DRED ERIC played a lovely blend of gospel, house and bassline.
