Lady Like

This June 30th “Lady Like” brings you a collection of female artist from the dance industry performing and presenting you with all the best music from house, tech, liquid D&B and disco!

“ That’s not very LADY LIKE… 

Often women in the dance genre are fighting for their recognition in the industry, from only being added as a feature artist on tracks (or not credited at all) or having to kick down doors to be on a line up and still only coming as a small print… However the industry is changing and women are getting better opportunities, more equality, opening the doors and paving the way! But the work is never done, so we want to create an event, yes BUT more importantly a community that supports the rise of local female talent in the industry.


Our Host EBONY BAILEY From the Unity Radio show GENESIS will be kicking the night off at 6pm (perfect day rave warm up for the weekend!)

???? Starting the night with the baseline babe ‘FXCKBOUT’ she will be warming you up and setting the tone for our night! FB is a Dj who plays everything from UKG all the way to D&B, All though she is pretty new to the city she has been making her mark already, you might know her from her own event ‘F*cking about with friends’ or the community of females she represents  ‘Sisterhood’ either way you’ll know she is about supporting and celebrating the craft and keeping the women front and centre if it all.

???? We have a summer set from TORIAH a producer and Dj from Liverpool, working with huge labels across the north west, even before her rebrand she was hosting weekly radio shows and gigging at many events in the north west BUT now is an unstoppable producer and Dj who you might have seen perform at local hotspot Joshua Brooks or maybe even Creamfields! Supporting artist like Hannah Wants & MK! If not you will have definitely herd her on BBC introducing, KISS FM or BBC radio 1 with her continued support from the station and radio presenter Jaguar.

???? Our first singer of the night is someone you’ll know from her previous work in the urban side of the industry, or maybe you’ve herd her heart and soul poured over her ballads! After smashing out the Xfactor back in 2018 she has been a whole journey as an artist and more Recently repp’d the 0161 with her feature on “queens of the city” with PLT where her track “pretty” was used on all their content! Not guessed yet? Of course we are speaking of the AMAIZNG BELLA PENFOLD!! Bella has been working on some dreamy house music this last few month and will not only be performing her latest single “ prodigy “ but also sharing some of her new summer hits!

???? Lastly on our line up, performing a mix of her house, tech house and D&B music is the performer herself EMILY F*CKING JADE! Emily Jade has been traveling all over the country working with multiple producers to create music to soundtrack your summer! With radio support from the BBC and her extrovert social media presence Emily has found herself racking up over 100 thousand streams on her first 2 releases alone! Recently she been working with big labels like ultra and the Crucast collective but As an independent artist she does it all… from writing & singing, to planning the music video, artwork concepts, release events and of course her social content. On the 30th of June she will be celebrating her newest release “Run” which she will be performing for us with her live band… yes we are talking Drum & Bass with a live band

SO with a cool NQ venue, a fully stocked bar, tickets so reasonably priced that ya gran could afford to rave even on her pension and a SICK all female line up the only thing to do is round up your favourite ‘shades on – world out – gun fingers up’ dance partners and secure your ticket!


CANCELLED motus presents james andrew b2b t.jacques, lowerhauz & schlechte

Our 3rd party this year and we have a very tasty line-up ready to start your bank holiday weekend off with a bang.

With a first ever B2B between two wizards on the wheels, T. Jacques and James Andrew, we cant wait to see what they have in store for us. Don’t miss out on a little bit of history and witness two masters at work.

The stage is set, Aatma is a secluded, cosy space tucked away in Manchester’s northern quarter, a venue perfectly suited to the artists and sounds that will be pumping through the airways all night long.

James Andrew is really flourishing in the scene at the moment, his cutting edge sound is something that simply can’t be ignored. He’s the brains behind Nothing but Nice Records, a label to keep an eye out for with some stellar releases, but James has also released on some major labels such as Limousine Dream & Subsequent and in our opinion one of the best in the game at the moment. On the back of a tour down under and some major dates in the diary this year in Europe, we’re so honoured to have him on board. His style goes hand in hand with Motus and more importantly T.Jacques who he will be sharing the stage with on the 26th.

T.Jacques is another artist who has really blossomed in the scene over the past few years, with his high energy DJ sets, providing beats that you just have to groove to. Not to mention an extremely talented producer with releases on huge labels such as mind helmet, churning out tracks that have made a huge impact in more ways than one. Whether it be making people move on the dance floor or influencing a new generation of producers with his unique sound that leaves an imprint on the mind, his sound is something that we really adore and to have him spinning some records B2B with another insanely talented artist, it would be daft to miss out on what’s to come.

Body Double co-founder and good friend Schlechte makes his second appearance for the Motus faithful. His record bag is filled to the brim with absolute gems. Last time he was nocking out some serious grooves, he really knows how to get the people going. This year Body Double have showcased some serious names such as DJ Pipe and Malika already and they’re only just getting going, watch this space!

Lowerhauz finish the line up, Motus co-founders and brothers who share that party starting telepathy. Anyone who has witnessed one of their sets in the past know exactly what to expect, if not just expect energy from start to finish!

ots @ aatma

OTS is back ????. This time we’re taking over Aatma in Manchester and we’ve got some of the best local selectors ready to bring the beats.
