Review: Trade The Love Ball, Turnmils, London

Trade's Love Ball, lived up to expectations, in every sense of the word. The music and the crowd were fabulous; the queues and the drinks prices were horrendous.

Musically the club as per usual delivered, my only disappointment being the lack of Malcolm Duffy to warm us up at the start, his place being taken by Wayne G. who played an extended set. Pete Wardman followed on with an electrifying, dynamic set which energised the whole club, and the night, (well afternoon really) was rounded off by Rachel Auburn, who, like Mae West, when she's good she's very good. Frankly I had doubted that anyone would be able to take things up a notch after Pete Wardman but Rachel did it. Overall, another wonderful experience from the Trade folk. Thanks.

Btw: those interested in Trade's early sounds should check out the listings below for the Trade Original event with some of the early residents of the club Malcolm Duffy (Original Trade Resident), Daz Saund (Original Trade Resident) & Dave Randall (Original Trade Guest DJ), "set to replay some of the best Trade music from the early years".


Review: Ricochet, Egg. London

Ricochet re-opened in early February and was billed as the official Trade after-party. I'm not sure how many people came along from Trade, but there was a goodly number of people there having a great time to the chunky and bouncy tunes played by the likes of Don Grant, and Lisa Pin-up. I have to confess to not doing much dancing as I spent lots of time in the chill-out room just chatting to some of the lovely people I met there. It's a shame that some clubs and promoters get too absorbed in their music policy and lose sight of the fact that a club is a social space for people, and that what makes the club enjoyable is as much the other people they get to meet as the music. Ricochet excelled in that department for me that night. Their next event at Egg will be in March.


Review: Release, The Nightingale, Birmingham

Andy Farley's new night, Release, got off to a flying start at the beginning of this month with over three hundred people attending the free re-opening party. Numbers have settled down to something more modest since and the club has brought it's opening times forward by an hour, starting now at 8pm. The music is a superbly blended progression from tribal through to techno, with Farley demonstrating his mastery of the decks every time he plays. Having just got back from playing in the States, and with a burgeoning international diary there's now talk of the club running monthly in March. However, it will be running on after Sundissential in Birmingham this coming Sunday, so we'll see what happens then.


Sundissential: More News!

"May you live in interesting times" is claimed to be an ancient Chinese curse and the times certainly are interesting for Sundissential, (See the January (2) newsletter for some recent background).

The latest is the fairly inevitable closing of Afterssential, which failed to hold its own against the ever more popular Afters at Subway City. Afterssential has now been replaced by "Filth" a funky house effort starting at 3am Sunday mornings under the funkissential banner, at 9 Bar on Broad Street. It seems that this is going to target the more mainstream/commercial crowd, up for a bit of late-night partying.

On top of that comes news of the latest new casualty in clubland, the voluntary receivership of Springwood Leisure, the Midlands based clubs and restaurants group, which also owns Zanzibar in Birmingham, and the premises occupied by Sundissential, (see http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/west_midlands/3486825.stm for info). Springwood claim that part of their problem stemmed from the hot Summer which reduced numbers going clubbing last year.

Sundissential's management are apparently unperturbed by this new twist, as they tell me that the premises will continue in operation even while the company is in receivership and beyond. This week on top of all this and their regular Saturday night event they have their forthcoming big splash at The Works to pull off on Sunday from 2pm. There's talk of discounted tickets for those clubbers wanting to go to both events so check out the Sunnies website for details or come along on Saturday night.
