Rob’s Round-Up 4

This entry is part 4 of 5 in the series Rob’s Roundup

1. Tell us how the Annual Brighton Weekender is shaping up, its getting bigger every year how does that equate?

It’s looking good, I’m very excited about Marta Ren first UK show, the album is brilliant and I have heard the live shows are very exciting. The event continues to grow, we started in 2004 with 250 people and now have three venues in close proximity. Our main venue the Komedia and venue 2 have an authentic Modernist playlist and atmosphere. The recently added third venue is a cool cellar bar club just off the seafront and caters for those of the paisley persuasion. Freakbeat, Garage & Psych are on the menu and features Graham Day & Forefathers and Wolf People live this year. Our daytime events at the Volks are an incredible spectacle with scooters lined-up both sides of Maderia drive, we have a sun terrace, two bars and food served all day. The daytime activities include a market, live bands, DJ’s and a Scooter run and competition on the Sunday. Tickets sell fast and are always on sale to members of our own network first you can join up here for FREE

2. The Euro Ye Ye is looking fresh with all sorts of new features, can you run us through one fo the best Events in the Calendar?

We lost our home The Oasis in 2014 to McDonalds. Our new home the Casino is a fantastic venue right in the centre of town with a great live music and DJ set up together with air con and big dance floor. The weekend starts Thursday night at 10pm with a free live show from Marta Ren in the main square of the City to between 3-4K people, followed by our first allnighter in the Casino. The event attracts visitors from all over the world and has busy program including exhibitions, film festival, live bands and dj’s. There are also scooter runs organized each day to different locations either in the mountains or coastal villages close to Gijon with a restaurant booked for lunch.

3. How was Margate and what can we expect in the future with that event?

We made a good start in 2015 and this year was a significant improvement again with numbers up and a great atmosphere. The town is rapidly improving especially the old town where our events are. Old town has a Brighton/European feel about it with vintage and retro clothes shops, boutique restaurants, coffee shops and tea rooms. The venue is perfect for a Mod/60’s event with two rooms, low ceiling, good sound system and live music set up. Our outside space during the day has a more festival feel about it with a stage on the seafront, scooters all around the piazza and this year we were blessed with beautiful sunshine which transformed the event. 2017 we aim to deliver another strong program including an exhibition in the TURNER this year and hope for more beautiful weather.

4. What else is coming up in NUTsWorld? Anything you wish to say to Bands, DJs, People of the Scene and beyond?

Plenty of great live shows at the Blues Kitchen venues over the summer months with Marta Ren and Stone Foundation two of the highlights. Mousetrap takes a summer break and returns in September and before you know it Crossfire returns on 22 October.

The new NUTSCAST will be online around 20 July and will give you an idea of what to expect at Brighton this year with tracks from the artists and DJ performing.

A limited edition Brighton T-shirt will be available at the Volks Saturday and Sunday lunchtime this year.

Over the last twenty years we have championed many new bands and DJ’s that have gone on to have successful careers. If you think you would fit in well at our events by all means send us a demo or playlist or copy of your record to review/play in our radio show. If it works for us too we will be in touch, you can use the contact button on our website at newuntouchables.com.

Rob’s Round-Up 5

This entry is part 5 of 5 in the series Rob’s Roundup

Massive thanks to all those who joined us for yet another fun NYE party.

Despite the madness going on all around us the one thing that is still in our destiny is having a good time and enjoying the music and style, we are all passionate about. Our team have been working hard on our annual Easter extravaganza in central London.

Le Beat Bespoké attracts pleasure seekers from all over the globe, with only one thing in mind having a real damn good party. So, with that firmly in mind, we have assembled yet another exciting line-up across two fantastic venues in the heart of London.

Check out our brand-new website www.lebeatbespoke.com for all the info you need. We booked ten stellar live bands featuring some of the best up and coming talent alongside two stellar acts from the 20th century.

However live music is just part of what makes Le Beat Bespoké such a fun and unique event. For your dancing pleasure, we have booked a dynamic DJ line-up from across Europe armed with explosive sounds on 100% original vinyl across 3 rooms of clubbing after the live bands.

Our guest club nights for the Rhythm & Blues Weekend include Crossfire, The Pow Wow, Lady Luck & Mousetrap all at the forefront of good times and taste. The menu is served All-night and includes authentic Rhythm & Blues, Northern Soul, Jazz, Latin, Boogaloo and Ska/Reggae.

The Beat Basement hosts the wildest and grooviest Freakbeat, Garage and Psychedelic ‘nuggets’ known to man to a back drop of eye candy visuals and groovy Go-Go girls.

A brand-new location for our daytime treats on Sat & Sunday afternoon is Dingwalls one of London’s most beautiful venues, situated right next to Camden lock in the World-famous Camden market. Expect DJ’s, bands, Easter egg hunt, record fair and market.

Contact drrobert@btinternet.com for trade stand.

But before Easter, we have celebrated an incredible 26 years at Mousetrap in the same venue with the same owner virtually unheard of these days, let alone in the ever-changing landscape of London. All those that attended would have got a free 45 with two rare tracks from the club’s playlist including one that has never been released on 45 before.

Hope to see you all Easter for an epic party!

www.lebeatbespoke.com

Cheers Dr. Robert
