Southport Weekender 50th - 9th - 11th May 2014, UK Live Review


Southport 50th was always going to be special. Every year Southport Weekender comes around again and with so many mind blowing gigs and sets we've seen throughout its history,  it would be fair to assume Alex, Dave and the rest of the Southport Weekender family couldn't top it off again, but my gosh they did! It was an epic weekender. 

Southport Weekender - Live Review

The history of Southport Weekender has been inspirational to many lovers of soul and unity. That's why so many American artists, who have influenced dance music, always return back to get a slice of this unique melting pot. David Morales, Derrick Carter, Kerri Chandler, Kenny Dope, Jazzy Jeff, as well as legendary UK pioneers such as Carl Cox, David Rodigan, Trevor Nelson, Giles Peterson, Norman Jay and Mr Scruff were all in the house.  Amazing live acts such as Faith Evans, Omar, Marcos Valle and Snarky Puppy added to the magic of what was a fantastic weekend. 

Arriving on Friday, it was hard not to get swept away with the excitement but with the After Parties and so much to see, it was best not to burn out too soon. Brand New Heavies in The Connoisseur's Corner was a perfect way to start the weekender. They always know how to win the Southport Weekender crowd with their great display of funk musicianship immediately getting the dance floor moving. With Suncebeat and now two more events this year - one at Camelot and a special nostalgia gig back at the original Pontins in Southport - there were plenty more opportunities to experience the good vibrations of the festival. There's no doubt anyone who's been to Suncebeat knows how good that event is, and that I'm sure will be even more prolific this year due to the tragic death of Frankie Knuckles, who was going to headline Suncebeat this year.

Southport Weekender 2014 - Preview


As the pace of 2014 quickens, only one thing is on our mind - and that's the great party that occurs every year at Southport Weekender. The 50th celebration of this sensational event is just weeks away and we are about to experience what SPW does so well in what looks to be the best so far.  The thought of heading down to Minehead again so soon is truly thrilling. 

Southport Weekender 2014 - Preview

The world continues to spin, seemingly faster than ever these days, so we have to be sure to allow space for good times and that is always guaranteed at this epic weekender. No matter what inspires you from your time there, you always take home that much appreciated and very special slice of soul each year. There's nowhere else in the world quite like it and that's why we see so many cutting edge international artists eager to play at Southport Weekender and continuing to return with another tune to drop. Obviously the 50th is going to be particularly special with so many soul stars and real legends such as Chakka Khan performing, and a remarkable DJ line-up setting the scene for a fantastic summer.

Reflecting on the 40th anniversary event in Pontins 8 years ago, it's crazy to think how much has changed in the world of music. Alas, it's only right to mention those who are no longer with us and who have added so much to the Weekender - I refer, of course, to the shocking news of the passing of Godfather of House Music Frankie Knuckles. In this cycle of 10, the events of Southport Weekender went from 2 to 1. The circumstances have been challenging and dramatically changing for sure. Southport Weekender has now settled at Butlins and, despite the changes, the commitment and loyalty for this world-acclaimed event remains unabated and respected by all.

It's All Gone Pete Tong Review


Good
A charismatically raucous and appropriately rhythmicfictional biopic about the drug-and-music-fueled career of superstar DJFrankie Wilde, "It's All Gone Pete Tong" is both darkly mirthfuland surprisingly emotive.

Opening with an energetic blitz of Wilde's decadent, party-hardylifestyle (cocaine, booze, puking, orgies, stage-diving, magazine covers,Ibiza beach parties), the film follows his descent into a strung-out hellof wheels-falling-off-the-wagon self-pity after going stone deaf -- andthus losing his livelihood and his only real talent. But writer-directorMichael Dowse then taps into the revitalizing potency of a metrical andmetaphysical epiphany that brings Wilde (played with frazzled, hyperactivecharisma by Paul Kaye) roaring back to prominence before he disappearswithout a trace at the height of his fame.

The title is Cockney rhyming slang for "it's all gonewrong," and Kaye -- with his scruffy hair, unevenly angular face andoh-so-British teeth -- rides his character's foolishness and vitality likea racecar with 100,000 hard miles on its tires. He just keeps pushing andpushing even though he knows in the back of his head something's goingto blow. Wilde is so fried he's barely able to form a coherent sentencewhen he's living what he thinks is the good life.

Bad genetics and loud music conspire to bring him downto earth, and once his hearing is gone, he nose-dives toward rock bottomand fights his sometimes comically depicted demons. His coke habit is symbolizedby a guy in a badger suit literally shoveling white powder in his faceand beating him up.
