Kojey Radical

Equal parts poet, musician, film-maker and visual artist, Hackney’s Kojey Radical had been making major waves in his native city with a series of incredibly explosive singles, like 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.

Curated by Mary Anne Hobbs for MIF17, Dark Matter was eight immersive shows from pioneering national, international and Manchester-based musicians.
