This week our man Carl paid a long overdue visit to Eastern Bloc, up in the Nothern Quarter. The place is a bit of a Manchester institution and amazingly this year sees its 25th Anniversary. We’re pleased to report that Eastern Bloc is still enthusiastically feeding the dancefloors and bedrooms of the North West with as much Techno, Drum N Bass, Dubstep and House as it can eat and, despite the age of CDJs and MP3 mixing, almost exclusively on 12″ Vinyl . It would seem that there is still a large and lively community of DJs and Tune affocianados for whom only a pair of Technics and a box of black plastic will do.
Sounds like the guys are doing a great job keeping the buzz going and Carl came back all twitchy and with an insatiable urge to mount a club podium, crack open a can of Breaker and throw some Techno ‘shapes’. So, we salute you Eastern Bloc and we’ve updated our E-Bloc page (click here) with an updated review and cool new pictures.
