More about this show
  • JAZZ

Hubcap Hustler is brought to you by Better Days and Idle Moments co-founder, Pablo Blanquito.

Based in Manchester, the long-standing sporadic parties have hosted an array of live music and DJs over the years including the likes of Tall Black Guy, 30/70 Collective and Amir Abdullah.

Pablo has had radio shows on NTS, Reform and MCR Live, as well as DJ residencies all over his city and beyond. Festivals he’s billed include Supersonic Jazz (Amsterdam), Cross The Tracks (London), On The Corner (Liverpool) and We Out Here (Cambridgeshire).

Not only has Pablo represented Gondwana Records and Red Bull to name a few, he’s also opened for Peanut Butter Wolf, Terrace Martin, Sons of Kemet and many more in recent years. His selections are always genre-free with a dancer’s mentality.

This month Pablo treats the Hubcap Hustler show to a Latin Jazz Special!
