mUmU announces Halloween
AFTER a sublime summer in Liverpool,
showcasing some of the world's leading artists across the techno and house
spectrum in a season of summer shows, mUmU is back again with a Halloween
special, on Friday, 27 October 2017, from 9pm to 5am!, within the Great Baltic
Warehouse, New Bird Street, Liverpool, L1 0BS.
Fast approaching its 10th Birthday that will take place in early 2018, mUmU
continues to develop and augment its standing as a true bastion of electronic
music, with an uncompromising and very much no-nonsense approach to its
bookings. Still built on its very original foundations, the long standing ethos
to book only the most innovative, creative and genre inspiring DJs and producers
has over the years been a who's who of talent drawn from the 4 corners of the
planet, built around a series of sporadic parties dotted around the renascent
City's Baltic Triangle.

For the Halloween special, it's very much
business as usual, as mUmU welcomes 2 revered artists to Liverpool; Fuse party
and label founder Enzo Siragusa, and the fast rising DJ and producer Archie
Hamilton. Enzo has used his revered party Fuse to cultivate an unmistakeable
sound, attracting a loyal, dedicated following in the process. His roots lie in
jungle and drum 'n' bass, that pure, undiluted sound which sprung up from
London's inner City in the mid 90's; now, with in 20 years deep and still as
passionate, enthusiastic and obsessive as ever, Enzo continues to inject his
ideals into his output, and brings his mesmerising sound to mUmU. And Archie
Hamilton has firmly established himself as 1 of the scene's most sought after
young artists. Among the most notable of these are his regular appearances at
global event brand FUSE, London's fabric and Ibiza's Space and Amnesia, as well
as leading international festivals like Sonus, We Are FSTVL and Found. 2016
