Weekends Matter 55: Greg Wilson (Wickerman)

January is a barren, bleak month. NYE becomes a distant memory, you start to change your life (for a week at least), plan ahead and swerve fun. Horrible really isn't it? Well we'd suggest lifting some of that gloom by focusing one one far flung future philosophy; Festivals.

It might be months off but planning your summer now is the best way to get organised and lift the gloom, and there's more options than you think nestled in our festival Finder. We've decided to dedicate our latest podcast to a handful of some of the options on sale at present, with our pick going towards a soiree we've been a part of for nine years; The Wickerman Festival.

We've been behind the Dance Arena at the festival since that point (head here to read up on your history), and the podcast mix is a recording of the headliner from 2013's edition, Greg Wilson. You can next see the legendary disco doyen at Homoelectric on 8th February, and of course get excited about and get tickets for the Wickerman here.

As ever we've rounded up five other selections for you to get your teeth round, so the other five festivals 

Electric Elephant - 10-14th July, Tisno, Croatia

GlobalGathering - 25th-26th July Startford upon Avon

Kendal Calling - 1st-3rd Aug Penrith

Leeds + Reading Festival - 22nd-24th Aug

Latitude - 17th-20th July

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

Weekends Matter 51: Sander van Doorn (SW4 Sessions)

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.

#41 - Eddie Halliwell (Cream Ibiza)

The Weekends Matter Podcast 41 is here and it’s helmed by a man who knows a thing or two about setting the world on fire, the one and only Eddie Halliwell. The man behind Fire it Up has held some of the most reputable residencies in dance music in his time, from Goodgreef to Gatecrasher, to the club for which this podcast centres on, Cream Ibiza.

Eddie’s signature style of trance, techno, house and electro has been a winning combination for the club at their various events across the planet, with him a permanent component of Creamfields and a frequent player at their events in Liverpool, where this set was taken from in March. Eddie will be playing for Cream Ibiza for the first time tomorrow evening, with six more dates across the summer.

We also look at the some other events this weekend, including Freeze presents Luciano and Friends, with mentions also to our Wickerman Warm Up, Ruckus in Middlesbrough, Sunset to Sunrise in Blackpool, The Hacienda reunion at the Coronet Theatre and Fantazia Superhereos in Bristol.
