Analogue Sound DJs have a very different approach to the art of DJing
DJs at parties and weddings can be very varied in their approach. There has been a resurgance of live music at functions which has replaced the outdated 'wedding DJ' who likes to talk to guests and has lots of flashing lights. However, the art of Djing is still alive and well.
Our DJs are sought-after because of their unique style, their extensive vinyl collections and their appreciation of music.
These DJs are not typical run of the mill DJs; they have style, taste and still know how to fill a dancefloor.
Vintage 78s DJ - 1930s
It’s a wind up, but not in the usual sense as DJs Matt and Annabel spin the discs on their 1930s picnic wind up gramophones. These two shellac jockeys started collecting old 78rpm discs over five ago and have now had to convert their garage to cope with the vast collection of over 20000 records and 15 gramophone players.
The couple combined their passion for music and all things vintage and three years ago created “It’s a Wind Up! Vintage 78 DJs", since then their popularity has been growing and they have been performing all over the UK from weddings and garden parties to corporate events and private functions.
Annabel is collector of vintage dresses and textiles which mean that the stage and costumes can all be set for their performances whether it’s a 20s speakeasy or a 50s Rock ‘n’ Roll party.
Matt and Annabel use 1930s Gramophone players which, by all accounts were the iPod of their day portable and with a great sound. These are then linked up to a P.A. system to amplify the music for any size of venue “It’s the Highest Low-Fi you’ll here. People sometimes just can’t believe the great sound quality we can get from our old players even without the P.A.” Annabel adds. “All our machines are in tiptop condition fully reconditioned We’ve trekked far and wide to find the best music and lots of our records are in near mint condition
Current favourites on the decks are Fat’s Waller, Louis Jordan, Ella Fitzgerald and a host of others. Sometimes this collection can bring back to life some near forgotten great bands such as the brilliant Scottish saxophonist Tommy Whittle and the magnificent Welsh clarinettist Harry Parry who when arriving in London ran the Radio Rhythm Club Show band for the BBC and recorded over 100 discs for Parlaphone records.

"Music is the language of the soul". Thanks for listening!
The Sugarfoot DJs are ‘Manchester’s finest cultural DJs’.
They play off 100% vinyl records.
They are 2 serious record ‘diggers’ with the soul* aim of sharing their music (& their love of music) with the people that they play for. With many years of experience DJ-ing in clubs, bars & festivals (PSV, Hacienda etc.) & representing record labels (Blood & Fire, Grand Central Records etc.) their current ‘Disco Cultura’ nights are hugely appreciated and very well received wherever they play out.
Culminating in over 50 years DJ experience (& with each of them also being musicians) their choice of records & ability to read a crowd is of the highest standard.
Specializing in the years 1930-1990, the themed nights they can provide are:
• Latin – (Boogaloo, Cha Cha Cha, Mambo)
• Soul – (Northern, Disco, Funk)
• Brazilian – (Bossa Nova, Samba, MPB)
• Reggae – (Ska, Rock Steady, Roots)
• 60’s – (Pop, Mod, Garage, Psychedelic)
• Hip-Hop – (Electro, Early Hip-Hop - 1990-s)
• World – (Afrobeat, Highlife, 70’s Bollywood)
(The ‘Disco Cultura’ nights are a special blend of the styles listed above)
Their ethos echoes the phrase voiced by Motown Records owner Berry Gordy - “It’s what’s in the groove that counts!”
