Manchester Keeps on Dancing is a feature length film documenting – in exceptional detail – the arrival of House music into Manchester from Chicago in the 1980’s, through to the Acid House explosion of 1988.
Featuring contributions from Andrew Weatherall, Dave Haslam, Heidi, Mike Pickering, Justin Robertson, Marshall Jefferson, Todd Terry, Greg Wilson, Laurent Garnier, Luke Unabomber, Johno Burgess, Dan Flynn and more.
Tracing history from pre-Hacienda through the ‘80s and the following 30 years of dance music’s phenomenal rise to today, Manchester Keeps on Dancing is a social study of a culture that helped put Manchester on the worldwide music map. Delving much deeper than the famous Hacienda club, Javi Senz‘s film instead digs into archive footage that has never before been seen on film, alongside in-depth interviews and memorable stories.
We’re very excited that producer, respected edit-maestro and early Manchester club DJ Greg wilson (Credit To The Edit) will be our special guest for a post-film chat and to answer your questions.
