Manchester-born musician and DJ Calum Lee – aka Paleman – has won cult status for a series of quietly thrilling releases that have breathed new life into minimal electronic music. With a monthly Rinse FM show and collaborations with the likes of Polar Bear under his belt, Lee took his music to another level at Dark Matter with a live show that incorporated his seriously dazzling jazz drumming. Support came from Sam Walton, another favourite son of the city.

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