Equal parts poet, musician, film-maker and visual artist, Hackney’s Kojey Radical has been making major waves in his native city with a series of incredibly explosive singles, most recently the dark, defiant Gallons. Seamlessly blending the intimately personal with the fiercely political, Kojey is a compelling and passionate live performer, and we were thrilled to present the first major Manchester show by one of the country’s hottest young rising stars. In support, a set from BBC Radio 6 Music DJ and Dark Matter curator Mary Anne Hobbs.
