Enjoying music in the company of mates is one of life’s great joys and with everyone being forced to be isolate, we felt we should get syncers worldwide out to the world.

  • Alternate CutsAlternate Cuts is an event and video series presented by Resident Advisor and Absolut Vodka UK. The series profiles local party collectives throughout the UK who work tirelessly outside of their 9-5's to keep their local music scenes thriving. To celebrate this we collaborate with these crews to bring some of their favourite artists to play rare, alternative sets. Each artist explores corners of their record collections that rarely see the light of day, in some of the best intimate venues around the country. The Alternate Cuts series has been running for two years and has hosted 7 collaborative events across the UK. https://www.residentadvisor.net/alternatecuts The announcement video for 2018's series was created by Manchester-based designer and motion graphics artist Andrew Lyster.
