CLUB OF THE WEEK; BIRTHDAY WEEKEND @ MINISTRY OF SOUND
Saturday 11 September 1999
Graeme Park played the most innovative house set I'd heard in months. In the midst of Ministry offshoots - bars, a burgeoning magazine, CDs - it's reassuring to know that the heart of this clubbing empire still beats to a strong, funky rhythm.
For the birthday proceedings, Darren Emerson, Dave Seaman and Hybrid play Friday; David Morales, Eric Morillo and the superb Cassius Mix headline Saturday night.
They promise "opulent decadence", with each room boasting a unique aesthetic - and the action will be linked, via ISDN, to Ibiza and New York.
