Ryan Hunn, AKA Illum Sphere – founder of Manchester’s near legendary club night Hoya:Hoya, Radiohead remixer, with releases on 3024, Tectonic, Young Turks – has found a new home on Ninja Tune with his debut full-length ‘Ghosts Of Then
And Now’. Illum Sphere recently played at the 25th Solid Steel Anniversary in London (in an all-vinyl back-to-back set with Mr Scruff) and at Warehouse Project, Manchester, alongside Flying Lotus, Jamie xx, Rustie, J-Rocc, John Talabot and more. He’s played everywhere, from Low End Theory in LA to Sydney, Australia. Illum Sphere is both a key player in the Manchester music scene and a unique presence on the global stage. Hoya:Hoya, the club night he co-founded in 2008 along with Jonny Dub, now boasts residents Eclair Fifi, Jon K, Lone and Krystal Klear, with mic skills from Chunky and Fox, and visuals by EMN, bringing names like Four Tet, Dabrye, Ikonika and Kuedo to the city. It’s known as one of the best parties in the country. Thom Yorke and XL Recordings asked Illum Sphere to remix Radiohead, who then invited him to appear on the seminal ‘King Of Limbs’ remixed edition of Boiler Room, alongside Caribou, Jamie xx and Lone, in addition to DJing at the afterparty of Radiohead’s O2 concert.
‘Ghosts Of Then And Now’ is available on 180g double vinyl (including digital download codes) in a gatefold sleeve (6mm spine) with black and white print on rough board.
