Foot Therapy DJs
Foot Therapy DJ’s are couple Bryan Tomson and Maggy Hopson aka DJ Black Pepper. Inspired by a shared love of record collecting and silly dancing, we started Foot Therapy in spring 2018. Our musical ethos explores the diversity of dance music of black heritage with a grounding in house music but veering into disco, garage, jungle and African rhythms.
The concept behind Foot Therapy is to create a welcoming atmosphere for dancing with no egos or pretension.
The night features bespoke live visuals from Foot Therapy resident VJ Dee Dixon aka DeDe, who has recently provide visuals for Ad Hoc records nights, Floating Points and more!

Gaskell Garden Project
100% of proceeds from the event will be donated directly to the Gaskell Garden Project, who are an environmental and social justice project based in Manchester. As well as workshops on permaculture and environmental sustainability, the group provide amazing support and sponsorship for refugees and asylum seekers. With the current hostile environment most recently demonstrated with the unlawful deportations to Jamaica, we believe GGP’s work is more vital than ever, and we know that all money we can raise will help grow the project and directly benefit those in our city who need it the most.
