Goodgreef take on Frantic at NYE-NEC
Written by e99 on 21-12-06 21:06 (7102 views) (1 comment)
Goodgreef is one of those rare success stories in hard dance. Founded in 2000 by then 18 year old Barry Almond, the brand now co-hosts the main arena at Creamfields, has hosted parties at Amnesia in Ibiza with Cream, and hosts regular gigs in Ireland, Holland, Ibiza and Russia as well as all over the North of England. In terms of hard music, it’s one of the most eclectic nights out there, representing the full spectrum of tough dirty music — as Barry points out. “Goodgreef has always been one of the only club nights in the UK that alternates between various genres of hard dance (hard trance, hard house, hardstyle) and trance and techno.” It’s this broad-minded approach that has seen them work with dance music giants like Cream and Slammin’ Vinyl, who have got them on-board at their NYE-NEC event, co-hosting a 2500 capacity arena with Frantic. and has seen everyone from Lady Dana to Marco Bailey play at their events.

Written by Ilana B on 20-12-06 19:08 (6133 views) (6 comments)
Deck The Halls, Jingle Bells, Tralalalala and all that... As we approach the season of over-eating, family arguments and getting yet more beige socks as presents, you can’t have helped but notice the build up to the HarderFaster Christmas party at Turnmills this Saturday 23 December. HarderFaster has picked the best of London’s up and coming talents along with resident DJs from promotions that have been rocking the city all year. With house music from funky to down right dirty we’ll keep you grooving all day long, but if you fancy a rest from the dancing join us in all manner of fun and games as we turn Turnmill’s Cinema Room into a House Grotto that would make Santa jealous. I’d like to introduce you to the house residents.... [Full Story]

DnB don High Contrast on the blower for Moondance NYE
Written by benz on 20-12-06 17:18 (3561 views) (3 comments)
Pendulum, Roni Size, Goldie, London Elektricity, Adam F... only a handful of drum 'n' bass artists have managed to achieve serious commercial success outside of the DnB world. The achievement is not so much the number of sales or money made from their classic albums - but rather the fact that all these artists are loved by people who don't particularly have much interest in DnB music. The awesome High Contrast, aka Welsh production wizz Lincoln J. Barrett, can count himself amongst this elite group, following the massive success and critical acclaim of his two albums 'True Colours' and 'High Society' and his hugely popular remixes of Kanye West's 'Golddigger' and The White Stripes' 'Blue Orchid'.

Going back to the Roots of psy trance with Metaphase and Zeus
Written by Tara on 15-12-06 14:57 (5916 views) (8 comments)
With psychedelic trance having undergone something of a revival lately, a lot of clubs and promotions are jumping on the bandwagon. Fortunately for those with more than a passing interest in good music, there are some dedicated djs, producers and promotions doing their best to keep things real. Two of these talented individuals are Roots promoters and PointZero Records managers Fabry Motta aka Metaphase and Peter Welgemoed aka Zeus. After a year of awesome Roots parties where they’ve been responsible for introducing the likes of Israel’s Solar System to the UK and the launch of PointZero’s ‘Radioactivity Part 2’ compilation, these two are well deserving of their HF debut.

Knowwhere @ Heaven ... reviewed
Written by josie on 15-12-06 00:06 (5554 views) (24 comments)
Clubland has been a bit reclusive of late — trance has been dominated as usual by The Gallery, and in particular Vaccine, but other big names have kept their heads below the parapet… notwithstanding the Wildchild débâcle. The promised Trancegeneration reunion was sadly not to be, but ElectronicSessions and others have been bubbling along under the surface, and fledgling event Ascendance is taking its first steps in Kingston. I’ve been even more cloistered… and God it feels good to go out! It’s been a while, and there was a manic gleam in the eye, therefore, when we rolled up at Knowwhere’s December shindig chez Heaven.

The world is your oyster, don’t go dancing
Written by Adam Symbiosis on 13-12-06 23:16 (4030 views) (13 comments)
“The world is your oyster” and “One day this will all be yours,” two things most of us heard from our parents. Now cast your minds back to those heady days of youth, what were you doing? Doing homework, tick. Chasing someone for a kiss, tick. Playing footie in the street, tick. These days kids are more likely to be checking out new tracks on MySpace, texting their mates, before heading off to the nearest available venue to have it to nu-rave. [Full Story]

2006 round-up with the Frantic 0101 main room DJs
Written by benz on 13-12-06 22:49 (5391 views) (4 comments)
Woot, it’s almost Christmas! Which also means it’s almost New Year’s! Which basically means we’ve got three weeks of shit-hot parties, drinking, gorging on food and general merriment to look forward to. 2006 has been a very exciting year for dance music however you look at it — the worldwide takeover of electro and minimal, the problems with the police in various London clubs, the digital download revolution fully getting into its swing, the warehouse revival, more festivals taking place than ever before and another great season in Ibiza were amongst the headlines. As the year draws to a close, we rounded up the main room DJs playing at Frantic 0101 at Hidden on New Year’s Day to give us their brief highlights of 2006. Full highlights coming in their forthcoming biographies... [Full Story]

Trevor Rockcliffe — Proactive — HeatUK & The Gallery NYE — 'nuff said?
Written by e99 on 13-12-06 22:19 (5747 views) (14 comments)
From travel agent to technoist, Trevor Rockcliffe’s story stretches way back into the origins of the British techno scene. Not long after he started playing at his hobby of DJing, his new found love of techno saw him bag a residency at Troll at The Soundshaft. Later residencies for legendary clubs like Trade and Ultimate Base saw his reputation grow far and wide, and particularly with Trade, forge himself a name with lovers of hard house. It’s this connection in part which sees him playing in Proactive’s Foyer at HeatUK & The Gallery’s massive NYE party at Brixton Academy, with a whole host of other techno, hard dance, house, electro, breaks and psy trance DJs.

Interview with Chris Hampshire
Written by AshAttack on 13-12-06 22:02 (6047 views) (7 comments)
Chris Hampshire has certainly been around the block many times, gracing many dance floors with stomping tune after stomping tune. ‘Breathless’ as re-mixed by Tony de Vit injected Hampshire & Weatherly to the front of the line and certainly beyond. A few years later Chris Hampshire’s purchase of Recover Records and Recoverworld have certainly paid off, not forgetting the sub labels under the umbrella of all things Recoverworld. [Full Story]
