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
