Annie Mac presents…The Radio One Live Mix Essential Selection at 20 20, Bournemouth on Friday November 14th.

Hmmm. Sitting in and listening to your girlfriend about’s tomorrow’s shopping list or going out, putting two little fellas down your neck and grooving to Annie with special guests Erol Alkan and A-Atrak. Well that took all of half a second to decide what to do on Friday.

Socialize at The Barhouse, Chelmsford on Friday November 14th.

I went to Chelmsford once. What a fucking shithole. However, Friday looks okay with an evening of electro house, breaks, drum n’ bass, dubstep and funk with headliner Cut La Roc. This guy is a musical genius.

Gatecrasher, Nottingham on Friday November 14th.

If there is one DJ I would have happily disappeared into the toilets at a club this year and had a wank after listening to him play, Eric Prydz is the dude. Nottingham, get ready to rock.

The Mud Club, Bognor Regis on Friday November 14th.

How weird is this? Derrick Carter playing his eclectic blend of minimal techno, house, funk and whatever he fancies in a seaside town more known for the fact that Butlins Holiday Camp is there rather than one of the biggest DJs in the world?

‘Abstract’ at The Egg, London on Saturday November 15th from 10pm-6am.

This crew’s second party over Autumn/Winter (although the UK has been like WInter all FUCKING year) and promising us a decor inside and out of open fires, antique bookcases, beautiful wallpaper, Chesterfield sofas and chandeliers. Bud sod that. I’ll be giving it some with bells on to the music supplied by Defected’s Miss Divine, Kiss FM’s Steve Smart, Kurtis Mantronix, Azuli’s La Luna. Colin Dale, Kerry Wallace from Es Paradis in Ibiza and Alex Hero.

secretsundaze & friends…at The Scala, London on Saturday November 15th.

A limited run of five parties joins London clubland with three rooms with different posse’s close to James’ and Giles’ hearts. So November checks out the boxes of Argy from Poker Flat, Lexx from Kawabata, Alex Dallas from The Lost Men and live sets from Glimpse and Quarion. Yup, we’ll have some of that.

Classique at The Blue Lagoon, Northampton on Saturday November 15th.

Hard house, hard house, hard house. Andy Farley and Richard Durand put on records that your parents would hate and call the police about…
