Weekends Matter - The Finale: Gareth Emery (Digital Society)

We're changing our podcast. For over two years we've brought you fortnightly insights into what we feel is the very best in clubland, but as our Mixcloud series of mixes got more and more we will be making the podcast monthly and about all the types of events we do on Skiddle... keep an eye out for the new one when it launches in a couple of weeks.

We've still got time for one more of the existing format, so we've got together the very best of what's on offer this Bank Holiday weekend. 

The top five includes the prison based madness at A-Wing, Derrick Carter bringing the house thump to Brighton, DJ EZ rocking it for eight hours in London, Ram Records' D&B brilliance in Birmingham and the opening party for Space in Ibiza - all worthy choices if you're still undecided about what to do this weekend.

The final main event we've bestowed the podcast upon though will be Digital Society, where Gareth Emery brings his Drive tour to the O2 Academy in Leeds on Sunday 25th May, and it's him in hte mix here. 

There he'll be joined by Eddie Halliwell, Bryan Kearney, Craig Connelly and more. Head here for tickets.

Weekends Matter 56: Samuel Lamont (Cream Reunion)

This edition of Weekends Matter sees us looking back longingly to yesteryear. Between 1992 and 2002 Cream was, for many clubbers and DJs, the best club in the world and the legacy it holds lives long to this day. A weekly exercise in club culture at it's most far reaching, it featured the best DJs around and defined hedonism in the 90s, eventually spreading to Ibiza and the fields of the UK with the domineering festival Creamfields.

The brand itself is still one of the world's biggest, with huge Creamfields events across the planet and the club itself knocking out three barnstorming events in their Nation home every year alongside their huge Amnesia shows. The Cream Reunion was set up to celebrate that initial decade, and this podcast is helmed by Samuel Lamont, the DJ behind that event, with a stunning mix of classic pulsating trance.

Saturday 1st of February Lamont will be part of a fleet of DJs that  hark back to the club's domineering era, including X-Press 2 (who we spoke to earlier in the week) and Guy Ornadel (and read our interview with him here). There's still some tickets left here for the party, and this mix is a chance to journey down memory lane for anyone who has a misty eyed memory of the club at that point.

As ever we've run down the top five regional events alongside the Cream reunion, these being as follows:

Monocult Seventh Birthday - Leeds

The Gallery resents Lange - Southampton

Gatecrasher present R3hab Third Birthday - Birmingham

Notsoslient's Dimensions festival Launch Party - Edinburgh

Elevate - London

Weekends Matter 53: Laidback Luke (Cream)

The first mix of our third year of podcast is here and what an absolute head rush it is. We've gone all Christmassy, but luckily that's raiding the best events that lurk just before and after the 25th December rather than an overload on Yuletide excess. And it also includes a guest mix form one man who really has blown 2013 into smithereens, Laidback Luke.

The Dutch DJ is truly a superstar of global dance music, his heady concoction of furious techno, rump shaking house and blistering electro a sure-fire winner across the planet. One place it always feels very much at home though is when coming full throttle out of the speakers of a Cream event, be it Liverpool, Ibiza or of course Creamfields. This month he headlines a stunning showcase at the nerve centre of the club, Nation, on Boxing Day.

Luke will be joined by Eddie HalliwellBenny Benassi, Tim MasonDeniz Kyou and a rare DJ set from Chicane (head here for more info), and if you were in need of a guaranteed way to blow that excess fat from Christmas it doesn't come much bigger and better than this.

As ever we also spotlighted five other nights form around the country to get your grind on this Christmas, ranging from Soloumn's deep house to Aly & Fila's trance, and even Alexander O'Neal's sultry soul. They are as follows:

North: Geestar Productions present Alexander O'Neal @ The Ritz Thursday 26th December

South: We are Junk @ Junk Club Saturday 21st December

London: Diynamic Showcase @ Electric Brixton Friday 27th December

Midlands: Gatecrasher Birmingham Boxing Day White Party

Scotland: Zoom Xmas Party @ The Arches Saturday 21st December

Weekends Matter 52: Dave Seaman (Selador)

Yay, we're two! Well Skiddle is actually a lot older than that but the Weekends Matter podcast has now clocked up two years of fortnightly doses of the best in clubland. We've had a wide range of DJs of all musical persuasions commanding the guest mix slot, with eclectic brilliance from Greg Wilson and Norman Jay, stadium crushing electro from Steve Aoki and The Japanese Popstars, house from Yousef and Groove Armada up to trance from Paul Oakenfold and the most recent incumbent, Sander Van Doorn.

Each one has been helmed by Funkademia's David Dunne, his dulcet tones describing our carefully handpicked clubbing selections for you. And now we've approached our 52nd episode, two years and a half century 

The mix comes from one of the Icons of dance music as we know it, legendary DJ Dave Seaman (play it above). He made compilation history this year when he became the first DJ to ever fund a mix compilation via crowd sourcing, and has also seen a fresh approach to cutting edge house and techno emphasised by his brand new record label Selador, which you can read all about his here.

The label takes over Liverpool's much loved Rave in a Cave this weekend The Williamson Tunnels as part of 303 presents, Dave joined by the man he runs the label with Steve Parry - head here for all your info on that. We also selected the following top five events alongside the main offering:

London: Cocoon London @ Building Six - Saturday 30th November

North: 7 Years of Ketoloco @ The Mint Club - Friday 22nd November

South: Bedlam presents Rudimental @ The Brunel Rooms - Friday 29th November

Midlands: Seven Part Four w/ Laidback Luke @ The Institute - Friday 29th November

Scotland: Paradiso & Nu:gen Present Hard Rock sofa @ City Nightclub - Saturday 30th November

Weekends Matter 51: Sander van Doorn (SW4 Sessions)

The Weekends Matter podcast has come through the door and it's a cracker once again. The final podcast before we celebrate two years of knocking them out comes courtesy of one of the biggest names in the business, the one and only Sander van Doorn.

The Dutch DJ will be the headline act at SW4 Sessions at Electric Brixton on Saturday 16th November, one of a select number of shows the world-beating festival does in club spaces with the starlets of the festival. It's Sander's first set in the capital since his stage owning performances at SW4, and this set will get you in the mood for his groove heavy take on trance, house and electro. Head here for further info on the event, where  Jochen Miller supports Sander's deck acumen.

Weekends Matter 49: Bitr8 (Speakerbox)

The weekend is nearly upon us, and right now that means podcast time. We're rapidly approaching two years of the fortnightly dosage of aural hedonism and we've got a few tricks up our sleeve to celebrate. This edition comes though in the tried and tested formula, with the event focus resting squarely on the delightful Speakerbox.

Mistajam's bass driven extravaganza has had a fast and furious four years at the apex of the events industry, circumventing the full spectrum of electronic music dominated by the low end. Dubstep, drum & bass, future garage... the lot are all represented in a true representation of the sounds he pushes on his 1Xtra Radio show.

This event continues that rich vein, Mistajam joined by the indomitable DJ Fresh, UK Garage legend DJ EZ, breakbeat pioneers Stanton Warriors and plenty more, all pushing forward the sounds that make you cower in the bass bins at the sheer size of the seismic sonic rumble.

The mix comes courtesy of Speakerbox resident Bitr8, providing us with a slick ensemble of upfront garage and house. Sotuhampton reared, the selector also presents the Speakerbox radio show on Ministry of Sound Radio.
