We are Alice Woods, Lucy Ironmonger, Tasha Carter and Steffi Allatt (Blasha & Allatt), bringing house, techno and obscene amounts of glitter to Manchester dance floors.

We believe in a Berlin manifesto: leave your high heels and troubles at the door, you came in here to dance.

Lucy Ironmonger is fondly referred to as the ‘jazzy house’ one of Meat Free. Through drumming she’s developed a lot of love for music using real instrument samples, and as a DJ she likes to incorporate less-quantised, more experimental tracks into her sets. As the proud owner of a 303 she does however have a penchant for acid, gritty, lo-fi sounds and is partial to the heavier stuff too (aren’t we all?). Lucy is lucky enough to have a music-related dayjob working at the School of Electronic Music helping people learn to produce and perform electronic music, which means a lot of exposure to emerging artists on the Manchester scene. Through the Salford Girls Club KMAH radio show she’s also discovered a love for basically nattering to people on air.
