For the first time ever in the UK, International DJ and production sensation Luciano is bringing his Vagabundos crew to party together in the UK. As well as the Cadenza boss himself, the likes of Reboot (live show), Maayan Nidam and Alex Picone will all play together at a multi-room space in the English capital with a massive custom built Vagabundos stage alongside a specially designed sound system and production to match. Going on the success of the shows in Ibiza, it will be a party like no other.
Sven Väth’s all day festival returns for yet another year, with yet another great line-up…
Love Family Park returns for its 16th year to Mainwiesen, Hanau, Germany and its a return that is sure to deliver. Over the years, this all day festival has be growing with unprecedented success, not only from the growing number of ravers that attend every year, which has added to its international profile and the number of people traveling from far and wide to soak up the atmosphere, but also in the number of stages and the impressiveness of the line-up. Engineering, visually and sound-wise, as well as organization have expanded in equal measure. Some artists have been there from the word go; many others have joined since then. 2001 saw the introduction of a new floor, which was first placed on a tennis court. In 2005, the third floor was erected, to meet the needs and expectations of artists and visitors alike.
Their site is still being updated from last year, but confirmed information goes as far as location, line-up and early bird tickets, which is all you really need to know.

Nearly 2 years in the running and Bedlam just seems to be going from strength to strength….
Over the course of nearly 2 years since the creation of the profound Maidstone (Kent) underground night Bedlam [Kent], it seems that Tim Green & Co are determined to make their mark on the scene as they reach new heights.
Bedlam, being the night of fast rising UK talent, DJ/Producer Tim Green. Tim Green being the man behind great tracks like “Old Sunshine”, who has seen both his name and production work on outstanding labels such as Get Physical, Dirtybird and Cocoon. And the Co being the dedicated people [Forward Thinking Music Management] behind the organisation of the night, helping both Tim Green and Bedlam to reach new heights.
From day one hosting the likes of M.A.N.D.Y., Martin Buttrich, Audio Fly, Lee Burridge, Matthias Tanzmann, Emerson Todd and 2000 And One, Bedlam has been smashing places like Maidstone hot spot, The Loft, some old abandoned cinema and now the historic Chatham monument, The Tunnel. And Bedlam seems to be focusing on those venues that are just dripping with pure underground vibe, which seems to be another key to its success along with the countless talent of DJs they are drafting in!
And with The Tunnel being the prime location we made sure we were at the Bedlam 1st Birthday almost 1 year ago. Where we soaked up the energy of Tim Green banging out his very own “Old Sunshine” and Matthias Tanzmann building the crowd with Yousef’s “Come Home”. We can honestly say that Bedlam @ The Tunnel is a truly momentous night indeed. Which is why Bedlam at The Tunnel returns once again this weekend [29 Jan] to host rising Italian house star Leon and very special guest Cassy. And of course resident Tim Green!
Cassy, well-known for playing DC10, Cocoon (Ibiza), Panorama Bar and Fabric, is undoubtably one of the best DJs on the scene. With her music being released on Souvenir, Cocoon and the almighty German giant Perlon Records, not to mention her mix CDs for Panorama Bar and Cocoon, she has gained huge respect in the underground scene. Her unique style and party vibe earning her back2back sessions with Ricardo Villalobos as she focuses on weaving deep and dark house music, twisted techno along with skill and finesse. There’s no doubt about how things are going to turn out for Bedlam!
Leon returns to Bedlam after having played an impressive set at the beginning of 2010 alongside M.A.N.D.Y. Having releases out on Nick Curly’s Cecille Records and Steve Lawler’s VIVa MUSiC, his talents have been gaining recognition from world-class DJs as Pete Tong, Ricardo Villalobos, Carl Cox, Luciano, Laurent Garnier, Loco Dice, M.A.N.D.Y., Tiefschwarz, Matthias Tanzmann, Nic Fanciulli, Danny Howells and Marco Carola. Adding to that, an extensive 17 date tour of the USA and Canada along with constant dates in Italy, UK, Germany, Holland, Russia and Spain, it’s not hard to see why Bedlam has got Leon back behind the console.
Which brings us back to the point of success. Because it’s not just the countless number of exceptional DJs that give the feeling of climbing success, it’s also with the added expansion and launch of Bedlam London. An act of proof that Tim Green & Co not only have the credentials but also the vision – “determined to make their mark on the scene”.
Bedlam London, set for a secret East London venue on the 19th March, boasts the presence of the Cadenza star known for the hit release “Elle” and collaboration with Cadenza co-star Cesar Merveille, Columbian born Pablo Cahn along with Crosstown Rebels duo, Art Department. – One word – Sick!
All we can conclude is that London may be a bigger pond but with Bedlam’s track record and reputation, it was inevitable that it would start to out-grow its current location and search for a larger environment, which will simple fuel its success.
Wiggle set to be a storm with Cadenza star Cesar Merveille….
After a truly electric sell out night on NYE, Wiggle are set to keep the energy flowing with their first date for 2011 playing host to Cadenza’s Cesar Merveille. Cesar makes his return to Wiggle after blowing the roof off during his last appearance.
Cesar Merveille has rocketed to success over the last three years with a demand for his talent stretching all over the globe, as well as becoming a regular player in the Cadenza worldwide showcase tour. Cesar has quickly made a name for himself with releases on Cadenza, Circus, Serialism and Safari Electronique. His “Chocopop Jazz” making a huge impact in 2008, followed by his debut appearance on Cadenza in 2009 with his “Descarga EP” – being known as a major highlight in Luciano’s sets – made in collaboration with Pablo Cahn. With this kind of track record it’s no surprise that Cesar is known for emitting an overwhelming energy from his sets and is undoubtably likely to do the same at Wiggle.
Setting the musical journey at Wiggle is one of London’s key underground house music figure JB (aka Jon Barnet). Having his roots firmly grounded in the Acid House era, he has kept himself in all the right places to make his mark and gaining the respect and reputation he deserves. JB will be setting the pace and giving the night the right kick-start to what will be a fully energetic shakedown.
With such a great Wiggle night lined up it’s no surprise that tickets are flying out like hot cakes. For all ticket sales make sure you check the following: -

Wiggle are pulling out all the stops for a great NYE Party….
The guys at Wiggle are obviously getting excited about their NYE Party up at Paramount, as they have every reason to be. Not only will they have a great line-up of DJs for the event, but they also have a fine venue which overlooks the whole of London. Due NYE this adds extra zest the night with views of fantastic fireworks across the city, whilst shaking it to some deep beats and busting grooves.
With two previous sell out parties at the Paramount, Wiggle is guaranteed to be an explosive night for NYE. With Nathan Coles, Terry Francis and Eddie Richards leading the way, they will be joined by 8 Bit and Plastic City legend The Timewriter, plus the very remarkable Freaky Disco.
Since more than a 15 Years now, The Timewriter aka Jean F. Cochois is respected as one of the top producers within the international House scene. His trademark style can be characterised by his dense and atmospheric sound which is based on sophisticated musicality and thoughtful profundity that goes far beyond dancefloors and mere entertainment. Take UK Muzik magazine’s judgement as a good measure: “This is real 21st century soul music, overflowing with magic. For Anyone who ever had a Heart”. Under various pseudonyms, the best known of which is The Timewriter, he has been releasing 12″ and 8 artist albums on such renowned labels as 8 Bit, Plastic City, Mole Listening Pearls, Elektrolux and American labels such as Wave Music, Fiji, as well as on Driftwood or Tonika, both Labels he founded with his good mate Norman Feller.
Freaky Disco has just released an EP on Nathan Coles’s “Is This” label and has support from the like of Loco Dice, Luciano, Marco Carola, Dj F.E.X and more…
For a taste of what to expect from the NYE night, get you head stuck into these mix sessions!
Fabric hosts a line-up of extreme talent this Saturday….
Once again Fabric demonstrates why it is still one of the best clubs in the world by host yet another great line-up of extremely talented DJs. Let’s face it Fabric has all the basic ingredients for be one of the best; size, location, ambient, sound system, as do many other clubs. But it’s in the choice of DJs where Fabric really accelerates from all the rest. Obviously the way in which Fabric is made really give a great underground vibe, but it must be said that they continue to host some of the best DJs around.
This Saturday 6th November, Fabric will be hosting WIGGLE, which means Nathan Coles, Eddie Richards and Fabric resident Terry Francis will be shaking Room 2. They will also be joined by what we think will undoubtably be a very special performance from Maetrik. Someone who is on fire at the moment releasing some great tunes and cool remixes left, right and centre. Plus Maetrik is celebrating his birthday, which means he will be dropping a lot of monster tunes and we hope even his latest track, “Snorkel”!
Room 1 is going to be just a jumping as Room 2 with resident Craig Richards and Luciano at the helm accompanied by Ernesto Ferreyra. But if Room 1 and Room 2 end up being packed out, you can also escape to Room 3 for a little more intimacy with Inland Knights, Fred Everything and Da Sunlounge.
