Weekends Matter 54: Todd Terry (Hacienda)

We've had a good year here at Skiddle. The podcast series has seen mixes from Laidback Luke, Yousef, Delphic, Dave Seaman and Sander Van Doorn in 2013, alongside many others, and spotlighted the events we've felt you need to know about on a fortnightly basis. Alongside our podcast we started a Mixcloud series (follow us here) and we’re now 35 mixes deep, with offerings from Tom Flynn, Aly & Fila, Gilles Peterson and Marlon Hoffstadt and plenty more in there.

We’ve decided to celebrate this in our last two Podcasts of 2013, selecting two of our favourite mixes from the account to showcase the best New Year’s Eve parties and the festivals we’re already looking forward to in 2014. The latter podcast will be released on Monday 30th December with the festival focus, but for New Year’s Eve we’ve picked Todd Terry’s classic house mix we received in August to deliver for the 54th installment of the podcast (listen above).

Todd joins Frankie Knuckles and Marshall Jefferson at the Hacienda reunion alongside plenty more DJs as well – head here for the full run down of what to expect there. And, as ever, we’ve tallied up the other five nights worthy of your consideration this week, and they are as follows:

North: Detonate present Detour @ O2 Acadamy, Sheffield

South: In Motion NYE @ Motion Nightclub, Bristol

London: Magna Carta NYE @ The Coronet Theatre

Midlands: Seven Part Seven @ The Institute, Birmingham

Scotland: Wee Dub Hogmany @ The Caves, Edinburgh

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
