Nightclubbing: Metalheadz at Blue Note

The Metalheadz night at Blue Note was a party that will go down in history as one of drum & bass’ most important. Alongside Rage and Speed, it’s the one that is most frequently cited by the genre’s luminaries in spreading the sound worldwide. Like most nights that eventually take on a historical significance, its success is a combination of factors. Drum & bass was in its beginning stages and Metalheadz, the label, had gathered together some of its finest, young producers. It was held on a Sunday, a day that lured out the rave-shy beatmakers. And heading it all up was this irrepressible character, Goldie, a producer who was just about ready to take the whole thing global.

There are other, vitally important things to mention. A lack of traditional MCs. A fierce dubplate rivalry. A DJ who put together one of the best DJ sets ever – after not spinning records in public for more than a year. But instead of listing all of them, we’ll simply let the people that were there tell the story. Over the past few months we interviewed a majority of the night’s major players. Here is their take on Metalheadz at Blue Note.

Classic ‘90s rave culture movie Human Traffic is getting a sequel

Nice one bruva.

Hot on the heels of Trainspotting 2, the follow-up to ’90s club culture classic Human Traffic is now also being written by the film’s original writer and director, Justin Kerrigan.

Rumours about the movie started a few months ago when a Facebook page emerged called Human Traffic: The Revolution, accompanied by the description: “Friends reunite to have fun in Ibiza!”

Danny Dyer, who starred in the 1999 film as Moff, teased the sequel release on Twitter yesterday (May 16), writing: “Moff. One of my favourite characters ever. That’s all I’m saying on the matter.”

The British-Irish movie centered around five rave-loving twenty-somethings and a drug-fuelled weekend in Cardiff and was famed for its use of archival footage in creating social and political commentary. The soundtrack was a seminal document of its time, featuring some of dance music’s biggest names, including Fatboy Slim and Carl Cox.

fabric london to reopen

fabric to reopen after striking deal with Metropolitan police and Islington council

Highbury Magistrates Court has today approved the agreement.
London’s fabric nightclub will reopen soon.

After it emerged that the club was in talks with Islington council and Metropolitan police to have its license reinstated, an agreement was rubber-stamped today at Highbury Magistrates Court. The agreement will see fabric reopen with a new set of licensing conditions. The exact reopening date has not been decided.

Philip Kolvin QC, one of the lawyers who’s been representing fabric since its license was revoked in September, told the court that fabric “has always set about trying to lead the industry,” and has engaged in a “root and branch reappraisal” of its operating procedures.

The 38 new conditions in the agreement have been outlined by fabric and the police in a joint statement, which you can read in full below. They include the use of a new ID scanning system, enhanced searching procedures, physical changes to the club, and lifetime bans for anyone found in possession of drugs or attempting to buy drugs in the club.
