Charlie Hedges presents Skiddle Podcast 003 - Guest Mix Tough Love

Charlie Hedges is back with the third installment of our monthly podcast. As expected, she's delivered another show filled with the hottest quality house music from across the world, spotlighting some of our favourite DJs along the way.

The episode features music from the likes of Franky Rizardo, Doorly, Dale Howard (who provided the guest mix for Skiddle Podcast 002) and Riva Starr.  

We've also spotlighted 99 Souls as our artist of the month following a giant year for them after the success of their mash up of Destiny's Child's 'Girl' and Brandy & Monica's 'The Boy Is Mine', which has had the remix treatment from Danny Howard and Chris Lorenzo to name just a few.

This podcast also features Graeme Park, who picked a seminal classic track for our feature ahead of the Hacienda Classical event at Lancaster's Williamsons Park. It's topped off with a guest mix from energetic, bass-heavy house lovers Tough Love, who are currently championing established and upcoming talent on their Get Twisted Records label.

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
