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
