Adventures In Clubland with Mr Dirty Smart: April

Mr Dirty Smart’s BIG 3.

First up, April 2nd, Size Matters at Club Mission, Leeds.
DJ’s Steve Angello, AN21 & Kim Fai.

I spent last summer in Ibiza. My favourite night on the White Isle had to be The Dark Forest at Pacha. Every week the Swedish House Mafia graced the decks & destroyed the dancefloor. I knew this night couldn’t be missed & Steve Angello would take me back to some fond summer memories...
They did not disappoint!

A euphoric blend of electro and house set the place alight and time seemed to fast-forward till close. If you get chance to see Steve Angello, AN21 or Kim Fai i strongly advise it!

Next was down to the clubbing capital of… Shrewsbury!
April 11th, Nitro at the Warehouse.

DJ’s Jack Beats, Caspa & Joshua Roberts. Jack Beats & Caspa brought their usual Dirty Electro/ Dubstep to the table. Joshua Roberts brought something completely different… If you haven’t heard of Joshua Roberts let me enlighten you…

I first heard him back in 2005 after he won Radio One’s young Dj of the year award. Since he has gone on to tour with the Cut Up Boys, obtain a residency at Ministry Of Sound- Egypt, become an Ibiza veteran & played with some of the biggest names in the game. Not to mention his awesome prodcution skills.
Iv never seen a crowd go so crazy. 2500 people jumping, and Joshua putting all of his energy into what can only be described as an unforgettable set.

Last but not least… April 24th, Purrfect at The Space, Leeds.

DJ’s Hoxton Whores & Nom De Strip.
Iv been a fan on the Hoxton Whores for a long time now. Their back catalogue reads like a dance music bible, and their tour diary like an airline departure board... to put it simply – the Hoxton Whores are massive!
They rocked Leeds. Unlike Mission & Warehouse, Space is a very intimate venue. You get so close to the artists you can smell them (not that you’d want to), and the artists energy is infectious.
If your into your clubbing Leeds is great for it. People are very likeminded and big into their tuneage. There is no pretentiousness or high horses just party people living for good times.


Did someone say tunage?
Iv been digging and uncovered an absolute gem!
Rico Tubbs sampling the Pointer Sisters disco classic…

Its free & legal to download, and a must have for anyone with ears!


I found this video, which needs to be watched:

Pablo ‘the drugs mule’ interviews DJ Brandon Block who shares experiences of his addiction to cocaine. Powerful message. Props to Brandon.

That’s all for this month.
Until next time.
Mr Dirty Smart
