A month at NOISELAB

It’s been a pretty busy month at the Noise Lab here in Manchester, with music and art being the focal points for a fantastic month. Here and now though, I’d like to go through two of the biggest events to take place this month. MC Envy performed live and put on a workshop for young up and coming MC’s. At twenty-two years of age, Envy is one of the most promising young MC’s around at the moment. She performed tracks from her new album, “Set Yourself on Fire”, (By the way, there never is a good time to set yourself on fire, in case you are one of those people who take’s everything literally) and superlatives don’t do her justice. She performed tracks such as “Chips In My Dip”, “Cocktails In Selfridges” and “Friday Night”. Set Yourself on Fire is available now from all good music shops and it’s definitely worth a listen.

Also in April saw street inspired artist Pure Evil is the most recent artist to pop into Noise Lab. He talked about his work, his gallery in London and the story of how he came to be an artist. He’s exhibited his work in Sao Paulo, New York and Amsterdam to name just a few places. He’s also worked with the likes of Jarvis Cocker and street artist Aaron Rose

Events like these have many similarities and they are a prime example of what Noise Lab is all about. Noise Lab gives young people somewhere to go and be creative. This is what Noise Lab does and long may it continue.

The next event at Noise Lab was In the Loop DJ & MC’ING Workshop Part 2. That took place on the 1st of May. After the way that the last event went, I would say that this event is going to be an “Off the Hook” experience. (Note to self. Never say off the hook again, because you just can’t pull it off).
