NAM X size? present Lotus - An evening dedicated to celebrating Manchester’s womxn in music!
NAM and size? have joined forces to present the second segment of the Lotus event. The collaborative showcase is an evening dedicated to celebrating Manchester’s womxn in music, and will be hosted by BBC Radio 1’s Victoria Jane.
Lotus is NAM’s latest listening concept, launched back in June with the intention of showcasing the sounds of the best womxn DJs. Established as part of NAM’s ongoing commitment as a venue to deliver diverse musical talent to their community, every Thursday is dedicated to platforming womxn in music in their very own basement. This month sees NAM team up with size? once more for another Lotus special.
Victoria Jane will be the host of an R&B panel with Manchester’s acclaimed R&B stars Pip Millett, The KTNA and Robin Knightz, followed by a heavyweight line-up of DJs taking over NAM’s elite audiophile system. The evening will be running from 7pm until 11pm, with entry free for all and drinks courtesy of The House of Suntory.
The evening will commence at 7:15pm with the panel serving as a portal into the music industry for aspiring musicians, whilst also shining a light on each of the homegrown artists’ incredible journeys. Then, from 8pm there will be a legendary line-up of womxn selectors getting behind the decks to take-over the basement’s elite audiophile sound system.
First up, Zèyla, who prides herself on her genre-crossing crate. Next up, producer, singer-songwriter and DJ in her own right, Katbrownsugar. The NTS resident has amassed a global following with her distinctive style, that encompasses neo-soul with lo-fi hip-hop and jazzy feels for the mind, body and soul. Closing the night, Mix-Stress, will be bringing a scorching soulful set.
