Rong at Venus, Manchester 04/04/2011 w/ Simon Patterson, Mark Sherry



After the huge success of the re-launch party hosted at their new home Venus, the Manchester based brand are back with the next instalment of RONG doings proving that Trance still firmly has a place in the heart of Manchester’s club scene.

RONG is a night that is all about the music, forever armed with a tight bill of talent from a spectrum of global cutting edge and elite trance acts, under the roof of an intimate and underground home. This carefully conjured recipe allows RONG’uns alike to put their trance pants on, and lose their inhibitions on the dance floor and indulge in the pure love of euphoric breakdowns, spine tingling melodies, uplifting riffs and thumping baselines – complimented by an every friendly and energetic atmosphere! This is one of few underground nights in the North West keeping the spark for trance well and truly ignited by still recognising its demand as a highly credible and ever popular genre. So if you are RONG in all the right ways, this is certainly your bag!

Following on from ‘the Judge’ – headliner of the last huge event, RONG now welcomes to their stage one of the hottest properties in the trance scene right now – UK DJ/Producer Simon Patterson. His offerings as a producer have captivated audiences near and far seeing him play some of biggest international events. Also, his monster track ‘Taxi’ has seen dance floors worldwide get a real ‘seeing to’. Signed exclusively to the hugely respected Spinnin’ Records, Simon’s music has earned him massive support from industry leaders such as Paul van Dyk, Tiesto, Armin van Burren, Ferry Corsten, Judge Jules and Above & Beyond.

Joining him in the RONG doings will be Trances’ newly crowned queen and worlds no.1 female DJ – Claudia Cazacu. The Romanian born beauty boasts an impressive discography with massive releases on the Spinnin’ and Armada group labels. Hugely recognised by her massive hit ‘free falling featuring Audrey Gallagher’, Claudia is fast becoming well established within the scene playing worldwide alongside some of the biggest names in the business.

And that’s not all folks…

RONG also welcome to their stage another very special guest – UK DJ/Producer Mark Sherry. After his huge success as Public Domain DJ, Mark re-launched himself into the trance circuit with fresh enthusiasm and dedication seeing him launch his own weekly radio show ‘Outburst’ and also knocking up a number of impressive productions under his belt. Couple that with playing some of biggest international events such as Trance Energy, Dance Valley to name a few, this is one DJ who is certainly not afraid of hard work and knows how to work a crowd. Finally, joining this tight trio of acts will be Garuda resident Adam Flexer, RONG resident James Rigby and local lads ‘The Technicians’.

Room two will be taken hostage by the RONG DJs ‘Morriarty and MoneyPenny’ as they present a selection of the best local talent in the Trance scene from across the North West who have represented the likes of Goodgreef, Kiddfectious, Off the Rails (OTR), to name a few.

So… with a bang-tidy line-up, a reputation for the party always going off, and a selection of drinks promos on all night… do you need any more reasons to get RONG…??
