Meet Class - Manchester's Newest Collective

Updated: May 2, 2019

Deep in the crease of a sofa, somewhere in Manchester, in between a lost lighter and a forgotten 50 pence-piece, Class is a creative collective currently conjuring musical flavours to accompany a generation. Class members are indigenous to the tropical lands of Crewe and Westhoughton. We chat to Class about their booming new releases, what brought them together and more!


How did Class come together as a collective?

We all met at the skate park we were local to back in Crewe, then a couple years later when we moved to Manchester, we met Callum all started hanging out and making tunes together.

What are your biggest musical influences?

We all listen to a lot weird shit. A lot of Uk Hiphop like Blah and high focus, a lot UKG but mostly just Dubstep. I think it mainly stems from a love of underground music mixed with a lil jazz.

What's the ethos behind your music?

Were just here to have a laugh, better than watching the TV init.

What's been the highlight of your time as a collective so far?

Making the visuals and all that stuff for sure, we all have a laugh doing it probably the best bits.

What can we expect to see from you guys in the future?

A new tune with some weird visuals every month for the next six months or so, as well as an EP sometime after. Hopefully if we get our shit together in time at least one party before the new year as well.
