Weekend 42 – 14, 15, 16, 17 Oct….
This week’s round up has grown massively since the previous issue of “Weekend Round Up”, showing off some very amazing night in some of the hot spots of the underground club scene over Europe.
A few weeks back we had published an article about a massive weekend in London and once again, the capital is going to be pumping. Friday night will be the starter of things to come with Krafty Kuts headlining a breaks night and Dan Ghenacia and friends partying away in Hewitt Street Car Park.
But it’s Saturday night which is going to kill you and not just for the long hours of partying or the massive line ups. More for the fact that you’ll be completely spoilt for choice as not only will fabric be celebrating its birthday with a massive night, which seems more like a marathon, but there are also the infamous nights; “Wiggle” and “Shake It!”. And that’s without mentioning that Ivan Smagghe and Derrick Carter will also be gracing the London with their presence.
In fact we would be interested to know which one of these nights would tickle your fancy more….

Bedrock 12 @ O2 Brixton Academy
Bedrock is going to literally, Rock….
Bedrock 12 is surely going to be a night not to be missed (which we will unfortunately been missing), as this time round Bedrock will be held at the O2 Brixton Academy. Now it’s not just the fact of the huge venue that is going to make this night immense, it’s not even the fact that it’s going to be spread across 4 rooms, or that it’s Carl Cox’s final UK date of 2010, but more down to the simple fact of some of the names lined-up.
Now obviously there is John Digweed joined by Carl Cox in the Main Room, but there is also Marco Bailey, Adam Sheridan, Jon Rundell and Jim Rivers being part of the Intec Digital Label Showcase in Room 2. Not forgetting that Drumattic Twins will be cracking away in the Circle Bar: Crooked vs Supatronix.
If you haven’t yet got tickets for this event, then stop Um’ing and Arh’ing about it and get your tickets fast. Although you better hope that there are still some left.
Lee Coombs on Old School Breaks
Lee Coombs, undoubtedly a predominant figure in the world of breaks, has posted his latest podcast which incorporates some brilliant breaks from the turn of the millennium. The 10 track, 1 hour mix includes tracks from the likes of The Drumattic Twins, Blim & Rennie Pilgrem, Planet Funk, Layo & Bushwacka, Quivver and New Order with a number of remixes by Lee Coombs himself.
The great thing about this mix is that Lee done the mix using all vinyl, demonstrating that vinyl is still just as good, if not better than digital versions.
“Another blast from the past, I put this mix together for my Sydney 2010 gig and recorded live with vinyl only using tracks from around 2000-2004. I really miss playing vinyl out in the clubs, CD’s are cool for being upfront but there is definitely something special about playing vinyl. I think I’ll be doing it a whole lot more… It bought back some great memories making this mix and I really think this was an exciting and ground breaking time in dance music.”
