I'm AK. I'm the guy who on this blog is representing the Sheffield scene. Give me a good beat and a good hook and you got me dancing . I don't have a narrow view of music so like to embrace it all.
I'm gonna be bringing to you the best nights in Sheffield with the best DJs and we do get them.
There's so much to talk about so I'll shorten it down and give a quick lowdown.
DQ - This is the heart of the underground music scene in Sheffield. Every night there's something happening here. It's regularly packed and for once the drinks aren't ridiculously priced. If your into your beats then they get a whole host of djs coming through here every 1month. Sinden, Drop the Lime, Tomb Crew, Mustard Pimps, Boy 8 Bit & Duke Dumont to name a few, http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2252286976&ref=ts - That's the Facebook group for DQ. I'll post more on the individual nights, closer to the date.
Plug - Plug nightclub is the home to Shuffle, Detonate, Fresh till Deaf and more. It is the BIG nightclub in Sheffield. With a capacity over 2000 you can see why it attracts names such as Deadmau5, Kissy Sell Out, James Zabiela, Dubfire and many more. Shuffle on a Saturday is renowned for its stella big name pulling power. Detonate is a monthly night that showcases the best D&B this country has to offer. Danny Byrd ripped the place apart the last time I went down. My favourite is Fresh Till Deaf. A new addition to Plug's line up brings in the underground electro and fidget djs that I crave. Foamo, Hijack & Stupid Fresh. It also helps to know that Plug has a new banging soundsystem installed over summer. Hello!
TTC - The Tuesday Club is the best midweek D&B night in the country. That is definitely a good start. It simply is definitely the heart of D&B, Dubstep & Hip-hop in Sheffield. They book everyone and anyone. The list is too long to mention here but its good, real good. They also manage to chuck in a couple of Valve Soundsystem's every year, which rock the Octagon centre to its core. I would highly recommend checking this out. Cheap entry and cheap drinks, with wicked dj's. Not more you can really ask for.
So that's me for the moment. I will be updating this blog every week with new tracks, new nights and music news.
I am the True Mess Head. AK
