Last weekend was a mega weekend with so many great events – big hitters were HighRise (pix here), Wat a Gwaan, Code and Swagger.
The fun continues this week – looks like we’re seeing an explosion in the scene with more quality nights. Lets remember tho that the important thing is the quality not the quantity…..
Ok, so lets have a look at this weekend – too many nights to mention here, so just the highlights – for the full line-up, check our events calendar
2 great regular nights to mention for thursday.. at Intime, DJ Wez_T will be supplying some smooth house flavours alongside guests -this week he’s got the ubiquitous Ricardo spinning on the beautiful Terrace. (https://www.facebook.com/events/586883221389960/)
DJ Jack Malipan at will be spinning again at Pontoon Pulse. No Problem Disco promises to celebrate “the funkier flavours of House as it blends with Disco glitter, sweet Soul and Latin fiesta“. Looks very nice! (http://www.facebook.com/NoProblemDiscoPP)
On Friday, start off the fun at the ShowBox Awards, where you can vote for a crazy selection of categories ranging from the conventional to the ridiculous of what’s best in PP. Even I (DJ Sequence) am in contention, battling against a desktop computer….plus ca change….(https://www.facebook.com/events/180602085471309)
Code Red is starting to bring in some big names, including Leeroy Thornhill (ex Prodigy). He’ll be playing a “mash up of breaks n electro style toons, using plenty of familiar hooks, with a good old skool feel. Heavy on the electro edge and full of funk that rocks the dancefloor.” (https://www.facebook.com/events/639626979431041/)
Meanwhile, UK House legend Danny Rampling alongside his wife Ilona will be spinning their usual loved-up sound as Mr and Mrs Rampling this Friday at Pontoon Pulse. Interesting to see 2 (relativley) big international names on the same night….(https://www.facebook.com/PontoonClub)
At the Terrace, the ever excellent DJ StrangeFruit, will take you on a musical trip thru House, Techno and beyond…no big name DJs, just consistently excellent music. (https://www.facebook.com/events/276685735817389/)
