Planet Mu Presents
+ Dancers (AG, Manny and Litebulb)
Planet Mu Records will be taking over Village Underground in Shoreditch, London, on the 29th of April 2011 showcasing Chicago’s Footwork dancers, producers and DJs ahead of it’s full label showcase at Corsica Studios the following week. Discounted tickets are available for people attending both events.
