Clubs; CLUB OF THE WEEK
Saturday 29 May 1999
Following the recent death of DJ Kem, Goldie makes a rare appearance behind the decks to pay his respects to one half of the dynamic duo, Kemistry & Storm. The pair introduced him to the hardcore sound that would later become jungle and together they founded the Metalhead, long since regarded as a byword for the best in urban beats.
Grooverider, DJ Krust, Bryan Gee, Doc Scott and Bailey will also be featuring on the Technics.
The aim of the MVP Ball (Metalheadz, V Recordings and Prototype Records) is "to honour the scene that made us all" but this Bank Holiday isn't quite your average drum'n'bass gig - more a soiree than a rave.
The sumptuous Cafe de Paris hardly springs to mind as a natural home for a drum'n'bass event, which goes some way to explaining the night's "suitz & sneakerz" dress code. So you better make sure you're scrubbed up. It will be well worth the effort to celebrate DJ Kem's work and see Goldie behind the decks again.
Monday, 3 Coventry Street, London W1 (0171-734 7700) 9pm-3am, pounds 12
THE BEST OF THE REST
SOUL MOVEMENT @ the clinic
Soul Movement celebrate their second birthday party in style this Friday night doing what they do best... throwing great parties. The promoters promise, "no speed, no pop and no shit" and have been as good as their word over the past two years. In return they have a hardcore following of loyal clubbers who tear up the dance floor monthly on Friday nights, and all for pounds 6. For the birthday bash, Alan Russell headlines with support from Seamus Haji and Chrissy T from Garage City.
Fridays, 13 Gerrard Street, London W1 (0181-531 7659) 10pm-4am, pounds 6
WESTWOOD & FATMAN @ the temple
The name of gigs could be a little more imaginative but you can't fault the power of the tunes on offer at Westwood's jams. If you like hip-hop you'll hear the biggest tunes mixed in with all-time floor fillers. Ladies have free admission; this fact, combined with the excellent tunes, ensures that there are no shortage of guys trying to get into these gigs. Fatman Scoop, LJ and Goldfinger Freddie join Westwood on the decks. It'll be packed, so make sure to arrive early.
Monday, 415 High Road, Tottenham, London N17 (0181-808 0808) 10pm-6am, pounds 6 guys/ladies free
