IN THE LOOP // DJ A-UP, AGENT J & BEDOS booking: In The Loop is all about block party vibes, spinning the span of hip hop and its influences - expect rap, soul, funk, bashment, reggae, disco, bass, Latin and Afro vibes for a start.

The crew consists of two DJs fronted by host and all-round good guy Bedos, who’s never failed to get a crowd cranked up yet.

The In The Loop club night has been integral to the explosion of Manchester hip hop in recent years, its trademark cypher the highlight of a community-centric movement. The Mouse Outfit were the original Loop backing band for the cypher, later giving way to 8 Gold Rings for a series of artist-based specials. Mr Thing, DJ Format and DJ Woody are amongst Loop heroes to have graced their decks.

The Loop crew have warmed up for the likes of Talib Kweli, Pharoahe Monch, El-P, Raekwon, Hypnotic Brass Band, Ultramagnetic MCs, Jungle Brothers, Jonwayne, DJ Format and DJ Premier plus shared the decks with RZA. They’re also a regular face at the only official J Dilla tribute night in the UK and have warmed up on a regular basis for the Juicy club night.

DJ A-UP is a veteran of legendary Manchester hip hop night C’mon Feet and turntablist crew Assmatics, and has shared a stage with Mos Def, Just Blaze, The Alchemist, Craig G, Canibus, The Herbaliser and People Under The Stairs. He hosts the underground podcast Nougold together with Bedos, showcasing the latest in golden-era style hip hop.

Agent J runs the Groovement website and podcast, interviewing everyone from Angie Stone to Sharon Jones and Flying Lotus, Pete Rock and Danny Brown, and also writes for the one of the last bastions of print, Bonafide Magazine. He’s played funk 45 sets ahead of Marlena Shaw, The Excitements, Myron & E, The Souljazz Orchestra, Lee Fields and the MIghty Mocambos, while feedback from his handful of sessions warming up for Craig Charles at Band on the Wall has been massively positive. He’s spoken about the Manchester scene on panels at Tramlines and Unconvention plus recently for Mixcloud and Eventbrite. Recently he hosted a Red Bull Music Academy workshop in Manchester with DJ Premier and Royce Da 5’9’’ about the making of the PRhyme album.

In The Loop = guaranteed jump up vibes!

Note re: bar sessions - We’re happy to tailor sets to spotlight funk, soul and disco sessions rather than a pure hip hop focus. You may not require Bedos to MC (although the troika comes highly recommended!), but having two DJs play back to back ensures the spice is kept in the set, and we both have our individual strengths. We’ve a lot of experience of the Manchester bar scene between us, including putting on Fat City DJs at regular sessions at the likes of Kro2, Cord and Fifty7, and In The Loop sessions at Terrace, Bluu and Allotment. A-UP is also a regular at the likes of Trof and Gorilla.

DJ Format - What you guys do is rapidly becoming a lost art - don’t give it up!
Tarik Graves, Hypnotic Brass Band - You guys should take this to New York, they’d love it.
