Screw NYE! The pick of the last weekend of 2012

There is so much to chose from on New Year, the line ups are amazing and the clubs, warehouses, bars and other venues pull out all the stops and spend all that extra cash on making your night probably the finest you will ever experience. The service industry from security to bar staff, bus driver to cabby are all happy and loving the fact they are working, they even give you a smile, free drink or even cheap ride as it is such a special night!

Bollox! If you can’t see past the money grabbing over hyped nonsense that is new year, then check out my  choice picks on the weekend that precedes Monday 31st…

Top Pick…


Inner Rhythm Xmas Special
Sunday 30 Dec, 6.30pm – 2.30am @ East Village
P&S listing

Stuart Patterson and Phil Asher created this inspirational Sunday party at East Village back in October 2011 with the simple goal of presenting a session which was all about the house music and the dancers that this would attract. They wanted people to come and experience a party that was all about the dance floor and be part of a Sunday vibe that followed the ethos of famous parties such as Body and Soul, Groove Sanctuary and more recently Secret Sundaze. Well they succeeded and Inner Rhythm, now over a year old, is a party anyone who loves their house music must and should attend.

In respect of DJs, Stuart Patterson and Phil Asher are residents and the only DJs who will play with the exception of one guest booking per event. With both of these DJs comes a fat black book full of numbers, so it is no surprise that in only 15 months and with minimal entrance charge, Inner Rhythm has welcomed Danny Krivit, DJ Spen, Jimpster, Craig Smith, Beg To Differ, Dan Beaumont, AtJazz, Brothers Vibe, Joshua Iz and Andre Lodemann.

So what is in store for their Xmas special, with all these names it must be something big? Well that depends how you look at it. When asking the Inner Rhythm faithful who they would want to play for this party, there was one unanimous answer – “Residents Only”. Stuart Patterson and Phil Asher between them will take all 8 hours. They understand the vibe, the sound, the club, the dance floor and the crowd and will make this (at only 4 quid for advance tickets) stunning night and an absolute must.

P&S Listing
Now this is an event for working off some of that Xmas eating, serious bouncing required to a bass heavy line up longer than five arms. Great value and everyone needs a bit of D&B in their life from time to time. Bargain at £6 (NUS) and £8 (normal folk) too.
