Danny Ward, Record Producer, musician, DJ has been producing records in his own right since the mid nineties under the name ‘Dubble D’, having produced two albums and a string of 12”s on 2020Vision and others under that name, and co-founding and producing the group 2020 Soundsystem with Ralph Lawson and Silver City. In the 90s and early noughties he collaborated and appeared on records with such luminaries as Fila Brazilia, The Pharcyde, Rae & Christian, Nightmares on Wax, Awesome 3 and a host of others but it was the cheeky monniker and imprint ‘Moodymanc’ that brought him firmly into the spotlight of House Music lovers worldwide. Whether it’s playing dusty rare grooves or laying down 4 to the floor from intimate parties to festival stages he brings a diverse and dynamic selection which never fails to move the crowd.

VEBA (Fat City, Groove Armada HOMOBLOC & La Discotheque). Underground music scene queen and one of Manchester's greatest soul singers. VEBA provided her unique vocal skills on several tracks for Grand Central records, most famously “Spellbound” one of the most iconic soul tunes ever to be produced in Manchester. VEBA's soulful, gospel tones have also appeared on a number of Groove Armada tunes. Having DJed for Playhouse Project many times before you can expect the unexpected plus a few surprises when VEBA gets on the mic.
