Top Picks: January Nightlife
2018 is off to great start with a load of stellar clubnights for you to help forget those January blues! Check out our top picks, with everything from house, bassline, to jazz and trance.
Muzik Events: Patrick Topping
Code Warehouse // Friday 19th January // £27.50
Muzik return in 2018 with favourite Patrick Topping, who’s now approaching half a million likes on Facebook, some achievement for a man who was playing at house parties in Sheffield just 2 years ago. Topping’s distinctive deep house sound is both futuristic and classic, expect a lot of drops and to burn off all those mince pies.
Hope Works x No Bounds: DJ Stingray 313, Josey Rebelle, Mumdance
Hope Works // Friday 26th January // £7-18
Sheffield’s techno institution team up with their new festival No Bounds to bring back man of the moment, Stingray, whose electro turntablism formed one of the biggest comebacks of 2017. He’s joined by fierce selector Josey Rebelle and a load of talent in room 2, with NTS radio’s re:ni amongst the headliners.
Sweats: Henry Wu
The Harley // Friday 26th January // £3-7
You may know Henry Wu – AKA Kamaal Williams – from his effervescent keys on the critically acclaimed Yussef Kamaal album Black Focus which came out in November 2016. Dubbed the “future sound of London” by Gilles Peterson, it raised Wu’s profile as both a DJ and producer – it’s about time he returned to Sheffield for a headline date and Sweats have outdone themselves with this booking. Check out our interview with Sweats here and Kamaal Williams’ new single below.
Muzik Events: Solardo Sessions
Code Warehouse // Friday 26th January // £27.50
The new wave of northern house music producers is reaching breaking point, with Patrick Topping, Richy Ahmed and Solardo dominating everywhere from London to Ibiza. Muzik bring the latter to Code Warehouse as part of their 18 date tour of Europe following the release of their Hot Creations EP ‘Fall Down’.
Detonate: DJ EZ
O2 Academy // Saturday 27th January // £18
The inimitable garage and bassline don DJ EZ has been top of the game for over 20 years now. Don’t miss this chance to catch the king himself in a relatively small venue considering the festival stages he plays these days.
Off Me Nut 8th Birthday
Hope Works // Saturday 27th January // £18
OMN hit an extraordinary milestone with a mega 3 room rave at your favourite former gun-barrel factory warehouse. With DJs from London, Bristol, and NYC playing bassline, drum ’n’ bass and happy hardcore you’ll wanna remember your earplugs and get ready to get down and dirty.
