Superstar DJ’s city date


A DJ who has made a home out of some of the most popular clubs in England pays a visit to Lancaster tomorrow night.

Over the last 11 years, Matthew Krysko has held three of the country’s most respected and revered residencies within the UK’s underground dance scene.

He has held his own at The Redlight at the former Sankeys Soap and Tribal Gathering in Manchester and now at the musical juggernaut that is The Warehouse Project, where he is the original and longest standing resident.

He has also shared the stage with some of dance music’s most influential individuals including Derrick Carter, Sasha, John Digweed and Andrew Weatherall, and he has played some of the most respected events from Ministry of Sound and Back to Basics to Glastonbury’s Radio 1 stage as well as international dates around Europe and the US.

Krysko, as he is best known, is also the youngest ever person to play two Live Radio 1 Essential Mixes from 2000 – 2010.

So it’s quite a coup for the relatively new club night at V-Bar in Church Street, run by Lancaster DJ and promotion collective Stylus and sound equipment specialists 118 Audio.

Simon Dodgson, one of the organisers, said: “Krysko is playing for two hours. We have fewer DJs this time allowing them more scope to set the vibe and direction of music.

“We basically set out on the nights together with Josh from Stylus with the intention of providing Lancaster with a night of quality house music and sound quality which is accessible to people of all ages that have a love of house music.

“We have plans to bring upcoming and more established artists in time as long as we are shown a positive response from our crowds, which so far we have had.”

The event is the fourth in the series of sessions, and kicks off at 9pm at V-Bar in Church Street, with support from Marlon Robinson and Stylus resident DJ Josh.

Advance tickets are £3, and entry is £5 on the door.
