CLUBS: AFTER DARK

Last week's Ericsson Muzik Magazine Dance Awards gave the dance- music industry the chance to gather together for a few drinks and plenty of back slapping.

Tall Paul won Best DJ, Deep Dish took the Best International DJ award amid stiff competition, and Danny Rampling collected an Outstanding Contribution award. Other winners included Faithless (Best Live Act), Freestylers (Best Band) and Judge Jules (Best Radio Show).

Gatecrasher walked off with the much-coveted Best Club award - the Sheffield legends have been responsible for excellent gigs and severe hangovers for many a year.

MoS at Pacha won Best Ibiza Club, an award of particular importance as the sunshine island continues to brand itself into the British club consciousness. Ministry winning an award seems like old news, but anyone who managed to get into one of the Pacha gigs will know that their night was the lick!

Pushca (right) return with some much-needed sparkle to London's club scene. Now split from MoS, they look set to take up a monthly Saturday residence at the Hanover Grand, which has been struggling to find a sure- fire winner at the weekend.

Bedrock launched last week at Heaven. This monthly event boasts John Digweed as resident - he'd called up all his mates for this gig; Sasha, Jimmy Van Malleghem, Adam Freeland and Hybrid all showed up to make the night a success.
