Geoff Kirkwood, better known as Man Power, is an English DJ and producer, hailing from the North East of England

Described by Resident Advisor as a purveyor of ‘intergalactic house music’ he has had releases on life & death, Hivern Discs, and Optimo Trax as well as his highly respected ‘me me me’ labels.

Man Power or Bedwetter, another established alias of Geoff Kirkwood, has travelled the world appearing at the likes of Fabric, Glastonbury, Burning Man and other iconic venues delivering his signature sound.

Anyone familiar with his work knows the difficulty that arises when trying to categorise his music, as it Draws upon house, techno, Italo and post-punk and beyond. The RRP travelled to Sage Gateshead to discuss his latest project as the artist in residence. A step outside of the usual parameters for both venue and the artist as the project offers an interesting and new music challenge for both.

We discussed his project, what he hopes to bring back to the North East and the proud & thriving local scene as Man Power in the latest edition of Behind The Headphones.
