The summer’s slowly but surely coming to an end, but there’s always one last hurrah – the August Bank Holiday Weekend. There’s longer weekends but this is definitely the most important, simply because it’s the last time in a while you’re going to be given a legitimate three day weekend that, fingers crossed, should be sunny. You need to indulge yourselves.
We know this, so our Weekends Matter podcast is focused entirely this time round on the one we feel that matters the most. We’ve picked out our top five events and, as per usual, and they circumnavigate the full spectrum of the dancefloor caveat.
There’s the thrusting sonics of Artist of the Week Steve Angello and his record label showcase Size in the Park, classic house from Todd Terry at the Hard Times 20th Birthday in Leeds, Musika collab with James Zabiela and his Born Electric promotion, mUmU’s Day & Night showcase in Liverpool and then last, but by no means least, Leeds’ final Faversham Garden Party of the year. It’s getting us all a little hot under the collar just thinking about them.
The mix though comes from our preferred choice this time round, Freeze in Liverpool. The clubnight has been one of the undoubted success stories of the year with their unconventional approach to venue choices for their events, and even though they’re in a club this time round they’re doing a day and night party at Haus Warehouse in the city, with a music policy that reflects the lighter side of house and disco in the day before cranking up the energy once the sun sets.
We picked elusive production outfit Autocycle to drop the mix, their funk laced take on house and disco perfectly representative of the daytime grooves that go hand in hand with the event. We spoke to them earlier in the year which you can check here, but other than that just enjoy the mix.
