The World Series was a celebration of our world, which we represented by its clubbing capitols. Bringing so many cultures together happily under one roof – in a world full of turmoil was a real joy to us.
THE WORLD SERIES, each week we would recreate one of the worlds clubbing capitols in Manumission.
It was a balancing act to find an appealing City and a great DJ with the right weight and fit to represent their City and Manumission.
Boddingtons played its part in the Manchester story. With Jon Da Silva, Luvdup and The Divine David. The Happy Monday’s crew were to join us later!
We brought in Blake Baxter and Stacey Pullen to represent Detroit…
David Alvarado and gallons of tequila from the City of Angels.
We brought in Le Palace from Paris, with David Guetta, Claude Monet and Tom & Jerry Bouthier… with special guest star Tony de Vit – celebrating his hard house and French ancestry.
And here, the Amsterdam party of the world series… With something traditional to represent the smoking capitol of Europe.
My all time favourite free invite… Happy to have designed it ourselves. Imagine rocking up to the door with this! And getting in for free!
Manumission is a Latin word meaning freedom from slavery – we have always been against slavery of every kind. Freedom to be whoever you wanted to be when you came to Manumission was the essence. All slavery is wrong, including wage slavery, debt bondage. All forms of slavery. The whole idea behind Manumission – the party, was freedom.
