The party will be hosted at Mixmag’s HQ on May 25, with Wisdom Teeth co-founder Facta and Noods Radio regular Manami spinning their up front styles of dance music. They’ve both lived in Bristol and London, becoming respected figures among two of the UK’s most vibrant music scenes.

As a DJ, Facta’s shapeshifting style encapsulates a spectrum of sounds ranging across club instrumentals, UKG, vocal-led pop, and more.
His scope as a producer includes ambient breakbeats and fizzy club wreckers, often released via the Wisdom Teeth label he runs with childhood friend K-LONE. His latest drop ‘Ditto’ came backed with a remix by Dorisburg.
Japan-born Manami’s influences come from the bass scene within Bristol on top of London’s darker outlook on house and techno.

Our first collaborative event ran in November last year, celebrating the launch of A|X ARMANI EXCHANGE’s rave-inspired collaboration with Smiley World.
The party was set at the fashion brand’s flagsjip store in London where Ploy and re:ni talked music and delivered a fiery b2b set.
The Sound Exchange was created to showcase a new dimension in style and sound – keep an eye on Mixmag and A|X ARMANI EXCHANGE’s social channels for more details of upcoming events in the US and Europe throughout 2023.
