CLUBS: AT THE CLUB FACE
Saturday 01 August 1998
@ hanover grand
Not quite able to match its predecessor, Malibu Stacey, Spacey ends its run at Hanover Grand. Future Perfect takes up the torch offering "bright lights, a warm sense of well-being - a calming and exciting experience." I'm not sure what that means, but it sounds intriguing enough to warrant a visit.
Stretch, Lawrence Nelson, Fat Tony, Craig Jenson, Smokin' Jo and Jim Shaft Ryan keep the house beats hard and progressive for this futuristic experience which is due to be broadcast live over the internet. Dress code for this Saturday night has to be cosmic. Arrive early.
Tonight, 6 Hanover St, W1 (0171-499 7977); 10.30pm-5am; pounds 12. PURE SILK @ sw1 This gig has the winning formula: beautiful women, great tunes and more beautiful women. Consequently, the guys come dressed to the nines and ready to bust their best moves.
If you like the sound of the London Underground, then there's simply nowhere better on Saturday night. One year on, this gig is a London institution. Karl "Tuff Enuff" Brown, Norris "da Boss" Windross and the rest of the Pure Silk spinners know how to move a crowd.
After the success of this event, anyone heading for the sunny sands of Ibiza should check out their gigs. UK garage is gonna blow-up in Ibiza 98 - it's a London thing.
Tonight, 191 Victoria St, SW1 (0171-630 8980); 10.30pm-6am; pounds 8 members/pounds 10 before 3am/ pounds 7 after SONIC MOOK EXPERIMENT @ 333 Silvah Bullet touches down at 333 tonight, continuing his impressive comeback. He shares the stage with Clinic at a gig that is gaining a well- deserved reputation for no- nonsense clubbing.
Phat, grimy beats prevail courtesy of Barry Ashworth (Dub Pistols), Kieron Accelerator and Mimi Freestyle, to name a few. There are more DJs here than you can shake a stick at, so there's bound to be someone to move you - any spinners with a name like Fantom Fingers & The Funky Technician have to be worth a couple of pounds.
Tonight, 333 Old Street, EC1 (0171-739 5949); 10pm-5am; pounds 5 before 11pm/pounds 10 after Funkin' PUSSY @ africa centre Funky flavas, hip-hop beats and old-skool classics do the business attracting as cool a crowd as you'll find in London. Hooch, Tha Dump, Kenny Boots and the excellent Jasper the Vinyl Junkie work the crowd effortlessly.
Old and the new tunes are seamlessly presented. If you like a intimate vibe and your music funky, then you'll return for more. Tonight, 38 King Street, WC2 (0171-836 1973); 10.30pm-3am; pounds 3 for first 50/pounds 7 after
