Manchester’s finest young DJ Finn releases Sometimes The Going Gets A Little Tough – his longest and most complete release yet, a collection of six house jams for trying times.
Since his 2014 debut ‘Keep Calling’, Finn has crafted his own breathless take on house music, taking chunks from speed garage, grime and hardcore in the UK to regional club music & ghetto-house in the USA.
His third release of 2017 (following ‘Late At Night’/‘Lightwork’ on his own 2 B REAL label and this summer’s Accelerated Club mixtape on Local Action) is the best realisation of his sound to date, a series of peaks and troughs from full throttle vocal house and chipmunk club cuts on the EP’s title track and ‘Who This Is (It’s P)’ to the more pensive ‘Trying Your Best’ and ‘So Confused’.
Part of the team behind NTS Manchester, each of these EP’s tracks has been thoroughly tested at both Manchester’s Soup Kitchen club, Finn’s monthly show on the station and his B2B series, which has recently seen him play alongside UNiiQU3, Teki Latex, Eclair Fifi and more.
