- Christmas special addition of everyone's favourite rave-up..
- Festive power-ups and x-mas cheer guaranteed
- Full Beam! Hydrofoil and Cerberus Future Technologies in full live support (more below), alongside esteemed selectors Ruf Dug, Kickin' Pigeon & Swayward...
- Set in a dark, dystopian, Mad Max adventure playground.

Ok folks, it's that time of the year again. The dark nights have rolled in, it's cold outside, mycelium networks have been harvested and there's little to do other than to get right at it in a dock off warehouse on the outskirts of town listening to some of the freshest new musica around. 

Wet Play carry on the great British tradition of a Christmas knees up in the hottest underground party joint in town - The White Hotel. Serious - if you think the gentrified, magnolia-beige undercoat that's been smeared over much of the city centre recently applies to this gaff - think again. This is a RAVE BUNKER of the highest order, players; tailor made for a wet and wild soaking. Extra sound is gonna be brought in, alongside Ruf Dug's now patented multi-media experience: lights, projections, tv screens, tons of smoke and that oh so sweet smell of incense will consume the senses. We're gonna go ALL OUT to make the venue, sound and vibes all work in symbiotic harmony to achieve MAXIMUM DRENCH

Make your transition, break the cycle break the chain...

Cerberus Future Technologies:

Levenshume's finest DIY-hardware manglers, CFT make organite-fuelled sonic wizardry and shamanic techno voodoo. If Levenshume was in London these guys'd be on the front cover of Vice and Wire every fucking month. Instead they're holed up, out of sight from us mere Earthlings, getting twisted on mind altering frequencies before laying down some of the most strung-out, cerebrum bustin', wigged-out shit you're EVER likely to hear. A rare live show from these true rave gremlins. Gotta be heard to be believed.

Full Beam! Hydrofoil:

Non-stop Proton boogie hitters & flying carpet tackle for the club... special effects and boing powered bombs gratis in 1st class. Bridge crew ridin' the rudder: Randy Marsh, Metrodome & sonofapizzaman. No lifeboats.

Ruf Dug, Kickin' Pigeon & Swayward

Full WP crew in DJ support. Expect everything from slo-mo eroticism, peaked-out power bombs and psychedelic dance music from the upper echelons. Cuddles from old friends and gentle nibbles with your lifestyle individuals. Meaningful opportunities have, and will develop, installing a pathway to victory.


The original purpose:
Wet Play - A glorious feeling. Soak up the fun.

Dress to impress

Wet Play w/ Mori Ra 20.08.16

A glorious feeling…

For your pleasure on Saturday 20th August Wet Play presents all the way from Osaka… Mori Ra!

Mori Ra = Super heavy Japan digger. All this rare Japanese music vibe is pretty ON TREND right now but he's been at it for a long time... he isn't only content to just own all the records that regular chumps have to cough up 100s of £££s for, he also has a nice little edit rig in his Osaka apartment where he takes that rare shit, chops it up and makes it bang even more before cutting custom 1-off dubplate versions for his own exclusive use... He's already hard at work cutting fresh plates for this journey so believe you are gonna hear shit you'll never hear anywhere else...

Need to quench? Come the drench...

Power-down force fields at the threshold. Dress suggestions – ‘Dilithium Debonair’. All species welcome. Plumage boosts positively encourage and will receive heavy nods. Dress-ta-sweat for extra enjoyment. Tucks will be appreciated on the way in - in various ways...

Increase your feeling....

BYOPU (bring your own power ups) *Special treat for early comers = Sample Swayward’s famous badman swish upon entry (whilst stock last (probably not very long)). Warning – do not drink if you are preggo or a pussy. *Additional libations available to purchase from the bar…

This is a SPICE free event. Anyone caught smoking, possessing or braggin about SPICE will be bounced out of the club and on to the next 192 back to Levenshulme. NO EXCEPTIONS (:

Venue: Kraak (now known as Aatma) Stevenson Square, Manchester.*Air conditioning sponsored by Wet Play (Where Good Friends Meet). *Multiply the vibe. Bring a pal or pure. Hang on to your crap. Lost property will not be returned so don’t ask. Wet Play highly recommend Bum-bags and not flinging your shit in corners when smashed...

Wet Play pals heavy in support. Passes available from various outposts for about 5 quid or cruise down at a decent hour to get in (MOTD=£7) ie: Before midnight = Slackers are crackers. Blast-off = 10:45pm…

…Soak up the fun.




Alternatively pick up a special 'TUB TOKEN' from Piccadilly Records to get yourself and a friend in for a fiver each... These are in short supply so don't dawdle...

WGFM#3 Release /// Tuck Report: Wet Play 11th July >>>FULL CREW<<<<< @Kraak

1. WGFM#3

After months of blood, sweat, tweeks and swear words our 'Where Good Friends Meet' triptych on Red Laser is almost complete. The third and final piece of the puzzle; WGFM#3 is edging towards it's official release at the beginning of August 2015... Featuring 4 landmines from some of our closest and mostest including massive debut heat on wax from Scottish boogie wizzard Tension a.k.a Hidden Groove... Here's pidge with the full lowdown:

Wet Play invite you to take a dip into their aural bubble bath for a third soaking as they complete their “Where Good Friends Meet” triptych on Red Laser Records. Inaugurating three new players into their much-loved steam room alongside long-serving patron, Metrodome. Rest assured this is one wash closet you're sure to frequent again and again.

Benny Badge, long term friend and cohort of our Randall Marsh, twice removed Manc and modern funk extraordinaire dons his Freekwency cap and kicks things off with "Streetboxx"; a loose and squelchy stroller / moocher dripping with Benny's flair for drum programming and goose-bump inducing melodies. Never untucked but rambunctiously grooving its way through Melbourne's sun-kissed, wide highways without a foamy dangler in sight.

Next, we jump into the Delorian and revisit 1983 as Glasgow's best kept secret, Tension provides possibly the most authentic slice of summertime soul you've heard since any of us here at Wet Play HQ were even born (Ruf Dug excused). Listen to that lyric - the guitars, niggling synth licks and perfectly executed tom rolls; fuck! Timeless boogie! and with the current off-the-wall pressing schedules post-record store day it's pure serendipity that we've got this banger out for summer 2015.

Giving you all the smells and feelings of a thorough soaking Metrodome and Il Bosco flip the script and give you the other flavours of our sensual soiree on the flip.

"Xanthan Gum" instantly reeks of what is now the standard de rigueur from Metrodome - futureproof as a Swiss army knife, sound system ready to tickle the fuck outta the tweeters n't subs n't yer nethers while being blissfully catchy, radiant and groovy as hell. The cats out of the bag on this guy. We know peops are after snapping up his art like a new Picasso. An increasingly busy body, wrist-deep in various projects including pounding out beats for Manchester’s infamous Levelz crew - we’re super buzzed that he’s kept some stone cold gems like this one held back for his foster family / nursery group Wet Play :) Nice one champ.

Finally, if you didn't already know, none of these Wet Play records would happen without parent label Red Laser having faith in our unprofessional, haphazard yet highly spirited outfit. Matt and Woody, perhaps witnessing a mirror of their former years, saw the intoxicating and unique atmosphere at our club nights and got us into gear to release these records; so it’s a double buzz when Woody sparks up his machines and gets all cybotronic on our arses with his Il Bosco guise. Hitting perfectly that late-night, drugged-out moment of floating-in-a-timeless-vacuum bliss when the smoke and the strobe and the lasers hit maximum, and the dancefloor's united in a serotonin flooded synergy; his 'Mind Meld' dub of Kano's "Another Life" instantly transports you to the centre of the dancefloor at our first adopted home, Kraak; emotional, hedonistic times whence which intense relationships were made, fresh moments were etched into people's minds and happiness poured into the streets. 


Each copy comes with a FULL BUZZ guaranteed. Unsatisfied customers can do one. We got a v. small handful of special test pressin's up to pre-bag on The Pyramid Suite, failing that you can pre-order the release proper via Fatcity Records right now...

Sport it people and get down to Kraak on the 11th. Manchester's number one lifestyle supplement is finally back... It's time to take it back. No tuck, no entry... Yes ladies... You too! We also accept VPL payments... Get down before midnight or we will turn you into a pumpkin upon arrival.

SFTOC / RLD Good Friday / WGFM#3

1. SFTOC - Wet Play re-materializes this May 3rd for Sounds From The Other City Festival. We're teaming up with El Diablo's and Red Laser Disco to hold court down at the First Chop Brewing Arm in sunny Shalford (Salford pronounced in Cantona accent). A well hung line-up has been put together between the three parties... For our end we have re-enlisted our pal Ruf Dug to join us and he'll be breaking out his Lion King Cassette case for one of his extra special live tape JAMs. Expect to see a shit load of Gazelle carcasses piled up under the first chop's arches...

2. RLD GOOD FRIDAY - Talking of Ruf Dug and Red Laser let us point you in the direction of this Good Friday 3rd April's Red Laser Disco... Ruffy will be toppling the bill for this n all but instead of tapes he'll be armed with records instead. Yes kids - records and tapes yo! proper shit. Our Randall Marsh will also be down to add extra sweat with fellow Red Laser residents...

Also behind 'The Wall' on the night will be Manc-talo goliath Kid Machine playin LIVE, fresh offa this MASSIVE track on the latest Red Laser EP7 12"...

And incase you need any more convincing to attend on Good Friday - we've also finally released (also guesting on the night) Dave O's pinnacle defining set from Wet Play down at Kraak a couple of years ago. We've been enjoying this all to ourselves for ages now but for the good of all mankind we've made it public. Proper journey this one. One of the best boogie missions around. Amazing selection of BANGERS fired out amidst the searing heat of a well over capacity night club... wave after wave after wave after wave after wave...

Oh yeah and some crazy maniacs built a fuckin massive, ground and back-breaking, relationship dissolving, widge shrinking (in regards to the building process I mean), arse clenching, dolmio day inducing, neck winding, urine darkening, eye belting, 'better than the Lawnmower Man' 5D visual video wall a couple of months ago.... It will also be in play on Good Friday. The blood stains have been tippexed out and the brain fragments have been scraped off ready for round two...

The 'Mega Structure' in action... Hold onto yer lunches.
