Going Higher: 'I work nights to fund my social life'
Friday 14 August 1998
"I WAS never really in to clubbing before I came to London, but now I think that was because of the poor standard of the clubs in my home area.
"When I go clubbing it is usually to drum and bass nights, but sometimes I like to enjoy the sheer diversity of the London club scene.
"London clubs cater for every musical persuasion and I think Bar Rhumba on Shaftesbury Avenue is proof of this. Musically it has something for everyone - house, drum and bass, jazz, indie - a real eclectic mix. I tend to pop in on Monday nights because the atmosphere is really chilled out and friendly, and it sets me up for the rest of my week.
"On Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays I work in a pub in Camden Town, which gives me enough money to finance my social life.
"Most people can't believe I work Saturday nights, but in my opinion they aren't the best clubbing nights anyway.
"On Thursdays I tend to go back to Bar Rhumba for "movement", a night of atmospheric drum and bass with jazzy undertones. Either there, or I'll go to Bagley's in Kings Cross for something more happy. Fridays I stick to The End, because I love the club.
"Some Saturdays I'm able to catch something at the Camden Palace. I used to go to Metalheadz at the Blue Note in Hoxton Square on a Sunday, but that's moved to The Complex in Islington, and I haven't tried it out yet."
