Rap fans can check out New York legend Funkmaster Flex at Tim Westwood's Saturday-night gig and Monday's post-carnival party at The Temple. Future dates for Westwood's excellent Pool Parties have been cancelled after the last gig got bum-rushed. Contrary to rumours, nobody was seriously hurt, and there are plans to continue at another venue a.s.a.p.
Dave Beer, of Back2Basics fame, is turning heads in Leeds with his new Saturday gig, Basics @ The Mint. The venue holds 600, and the intimate vibe has them queuing up for miles.
Talking of travelling for miles to get to clubs, look to Cornwall. Everyone under the age of 30 (and plenty more aged under 18) congregates in Newquay at one of two venues, Sailors or Berty's. It's basically bangin' house, cheap alcohol (not seen in London since '85) and snogging... Great clubbing. If it stayed open past 12.30am, I'd be tempted to go back.
