Dawsons Music x Tekniq Easter Event Announcement

We’ve been following the news closely here at Dawsons Music & Tekniq MCR; the following decision wasn’t made in haste and we feel that it is the best for all involved.

Considering recent developments with regard to Coronavirus (COVID-19), and taking on board updated government advice, we have decided to postpone our ‘Dawsons Music x Tekniq Easter Rave event’ until further notice.

The aim of the event is to bring people together who share a love of music, to create a safe space where they can enjoy themselves and meet like-minded souls. We want to promote passion, positivity, and the freedom to party your heart out.

However, given the current climate, we don’t feel we can provide an environment that will safeguard people in the way that we would want to. People’s safety is of paramount importance to us, and we hope that you’ll appreciate our decision to postpone the event for now.

Dawsons Music, Tekniq MCR, and Throne Room Records would like to extend our heartfelt apologies to anyone inconvenienced by this decision. However, we will aim to put the event on later in the year once we are given the green light, and we promise to make it an even bigger party than the one we had planned!

All current tickets will remain valid for our new date and full details will be released ASAP! For those who wish for a refund please get in contact with us.

In the meantime, you can stay up to date here on Studio D and at:

We would also like to extend our deepest sympathies to everyone affected by to Coronavirus at this time, which we think is fair to say pretty much all of us. More than ever we need to be there for each other, not just within the music community but be there for everyone. Music is about unity. Music is universal, and we all have the power to be a positive influence in the days, weeks, and months ahead.

Take care of each other and we hope to see you later in the year for an epic party!

About the event

The Tekniq x Throne Room Records event will bring techno heavyweight Thomas Schumacher back to Manchester for an Easter Sunday rave in the Joshua Brooks basement. Following the release of his huge ‘Crimson’ EP on Adam Beyer’s ‘Drumcode Records’, the in-demand Berlin-based DJ, producer and composer is poised to headline another unforgettable Tekniq event.

Joining the line-up is Tekniq regular, Transcode. His recent ‘Devotion’ EP on Monika Kruse’s ‘Terminal M Records’ is flying up the Beatport charts, setting the tone for what is expected to be a massive year for him.

Representing Throne Room Records will be label boss Oliver Carloni. Oliver regularly puts out music on his own label, as well as releasing on revered labels such as Funk’n Deep and Respekt Recordings.

Of course, Tekniq resident, Josh Wakefield, will be on hand to kick off proceedings.

Dawsons Music stay true to their word in supporting local and national music promoters, record labels, and artists via their Studio D brand. Building on their experience at BBC Music Introducing Live 2019, Studio D represents the MI Retailer’s ambitious plans to become a leader in informing, promoting, and supporting artists, DJs, musicians, and promoters across the industry. Expect much more to follow in the coming months.

“We feel that partnering with Tekniq offers the perfect opportunity to engage with an audience who may not have previously looked to Dawsons as their go-to resource for music-related gear and information. The Tekniq x Throne Room Records event is a huge opportunity to show that we mean business.”

Jack Ward, Head of Marketing at Dawsons Music

“We’re super excited for the upcoming event and to be working alongside a brand like Dawsons Music x Studio D. It’s great to see them getting involved in the local music scene and supporting the community.“
