AALICE & LUCY IRONMONGER (MEAT FREE)2018 Artists
Meat Free is 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.
One quarter of Manchester’s female collective Meat Free, Alice Woods an be found playing house through to techno and back to disco. From Warehouse Project to Field Maneuvers, Pangaea Festival and Parklife – Alice has DJed alongside the likes of Steffi, Ben Sims, Randomer and Objekt.
When not in front of the decks, Aalice has appeared as speaker on a number of panels from Simple Things, AVA to Radio 1 and is curator of electronic music discussion series FLOOR.
Lucy Ironmonger is fondly referred to as the ‘jazzy house’ one of Meat Free. As the proud owner of a 303 she also has a penchant for acid, gritty, lo-fi sounds and is partial to the heavier stuff too (aren’t we all?). Lucy’s dayjob is working at the School of Electronic Music, helping people learn to make and explore electronic music, which put things off to a good start.
Through drumming (ok, mainly jazz 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 too.
