AUGUST'S TOP CLUB NIGHTS

GLASTONBURY 2015 REVIEW

When millions tuned into the BBC to watch Mary J Blige cry her eyes out on the Pyramid Stage on the BBC last month — “no more dramaaaa!” — little did they know (or care) that, just a few hundred yards either side of her, there was enough dance debauchery to fill Fabric, SW4 and Secret Garden Party three times over — at least. Or that this jaded dance hack was also in the crowd wearing a poncho, also in tears, blaming it on the rain.

ARCADIA MAKES ITS WAY TO BRISTOL

Made up of recycled military hardware and founded in 2007, if you haven't experienced the mind-blowing spectacle of Arcadia's spider stage you simply haven't lived!

BRIGHTON MUSIC CONFERENCE REVIEW

The second Brighton Music Conference (BMC) was hailed a resounding success by all who attended at the start of June. The two-day event — featuring panel discussions, tech displays, networking events and more — has quickly built itself up into the UK's answer to the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE).

Q&A: SW4 ORGANISERS

Voted Best Festival at Best of British Awards 2014, South West Four celebrated its 10th year in 2013 — but this one is gearing up to be their most monumental year yet. Every summer, SW4's headline acts — over two days — have become probably the most hyped announcements among dance heads in the capital, if not the UK.

INTRODUCING LIVE DO DAFT PUNK’S ‘DISCOVERY'

London-based cover band, Introducing Live, laugh in the face of the impossible — the group perform the albums that others won’t, they play the unplayable. What’s even more impressive is they do this without the help of any laptops, sequencers, or robots. 

The group’s first project was DJ Shadow’s legendary album ‘Endtroducing’, a sample-based album that required the group to reverse engineer all of Shadow’s samples to properly recreate the album for a live setting.

REVIEW: SOUTHPORT WEEKENDER

As the curtain falls on the 52nd edition of Southport Weekender, Masters at Work drop Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’ to mark the final tune in its 28-year history.

The main stage celebration of house from New York, Chicago and Detroit, dubbed The Powerhouse, is full to the brim with the Weekender faithful keen to catch a last note of music at the event they’ve loved so much.
