Beat goes on.
A new year and a major coup for Newcastle night, Substance. With Mark Ronson having stormed his way into World Headquarters before Christmas, it is with much delight that I can bring to you news of a unique Prince Paul gig at the same venue.
Prince Paul is one of hip-hop's biggest and most enduring names, having been the creative inspiration behind De La Soul's seminal 3ft High and Rising.
He has also produced the Wu-Tang Clan spin-off Gravediggaz's two 1990s albums while his recent solo album, Politics of the Business, has maintained his street cred.
To get him playing in the region is another huge feather in the cap of Substance. The gig takes place at World Headquarters on Carliol Square on January 29.
FRESH from a hugely successful re-opening party at Sugar last weekend, Nice is currently building up to celebrate its tenth birthday on February 21.
Undoubtedly the most popular straight/gay night in the North-East, the return of Nice can only be a good thing and reports from last weekend's event insist it has lost none of its unique atmosphere. Let's hope the return is long and successful.
GALAXY Radio has launched a new pre-clubbing magazine show, Solid State, to try to rival its great competitor, Radio One, for the pre-night-out radio audience.
Going on air every Saturday between 7 and 9pm and hosted by Paul Kershaw, Solid State includes an interactive clubbing chart, a run- down of the hottest club nights and on-location broadcasts.
SHINDIG has come out fighting at the start of the year with two heavyweight house nights. First up comes the legendary Sandy Rivera on Saturday to get things funky, warming up to the more jumping Derrick Carter on January 31.
