Weekends Matter January 2015 - Guest Mix Graeme Park

We've just about recovered (physically and mentally) from the festive party period and we're picking up momentum again and getting ready to dance off that extra weight. With it being our first Weekends Matter podcast of the year, we wanted it to be a blinder so we've included music from Oliver Heldens, Amine Edge & DANCE, The War on Drugs and Mala ahead of their upcoming gigs.

We've also treated you to a guest mix from hedonistic Hacienda mainstay Graeme Park.  Park has been at the forefront of the evolution of dance music and club culture for thirty years and is one of the most authoritative voices within the circuit. You can catch a set from the man himself at A Wing in Lancaster Castle alongside Mike Pickering and Tom Wainright on Saturday 14th February

Full tracklisting: 

'Koala' Oliver Heldens - Upcoming Oliver Heldens gigs

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.

weekends matter 46: Mike Vale (Space, Ibiza)

The white isle. It’s the stuff of dreams, a place where the magic happens each and every summer with a high octane blend of hedonism and thumping electronic grooves has been seducing dance music lovers for decades. Whether you lose yourself in the reach for the lasers hedonism of the trance at Cream, the slow and sexual grooves of DC10’s underground house or the multi-faceted sounds of We Love… Space, Ibiza has it all for anyone who loves music.

With this in mind we’ve dedicated our podcast not to any one individual event this time round, but instead just given you a flavour of the best parties and clubs on the island you can still nab tickets for before the season shuts up shop for another year in early October. We’ve also grabbed a recent mix from someone you will be hearing a lot of in the future to showcase a flavour of the sound on offer, with Mike Vale delivering a techno workout which was his recent live recording when he played Space recently – he returns on Monday 9th September.

So turn up the speakers and let the pounding Balearic beats soothe you as we offer you a slice of the world’s still undoubted party capital.

#43 - The Head Gardener (Secret Garden Party)

We’ve been big fans of the Secret Garden Party here at Skiddle HQ for a few years now, the soiree rightfully attaining the status as one of the most loved boutique festivals in the UK. The attention to detail to the entire experience remains unrivalled and in terms of charm, they don’t come much better than SGP.

Although it’s a festival that’s well-endowed in the headliners department (2ManyDJs, Mistajam and David Rodigan number in this year's DJs) the family feel of their residents has been one of the key components of their musical make-up, headed up by The Head Gardener. So when we announced we’d be selling tickets for the gathering recently, we knew we had to spotlight his mix on our podcast series.

The podcast also throws some love to five other big events coming up over the next fortnight, with Leeds tyros mono_cult heading to London, Barcelona clubFACT doing the same, the Brazilica Festival afterparty in Liverpool, Australian bass fiend FLUME hitting Gorilla in Manchester and the monolithic Size in the Parkup in Scotland.
