In March, ‘Sweet Sensation’ rocked the Ruby Lounge - and once again legendary ex-Hacienda DJ Dave Haslam brings his very successful, and ultra sweet and sensational night to the Ruby Lounge, playing a joyous mix of classic funk, quality soul, and house anthems galore.
On the 2nd May (Bank holiday Saturday) he’s joined by Chris E in the main room, with the second room hosted by ‘Out of the Gloom’ featuring DJs Steph Holland, Bodidily (Shift), and Tony ‘Spaceface’ Morris (Pinata / Universal Language).
For five years or more ‘Sweet Sensation’ has built up a reputation for attracting a great crowd of enthusiastic clubbers getting off on a joyous mix of tunes. Usually without a press release or flyers or any of that jazz, sometimes word-of-mouth only, sometimes barely advertised, sometimes guest-list only, ‘Sweet Sensation’ takes place at various venues, irregularly, always with a wonderful sense of an event.
Dave Haslam is a writer and DJ who DJ’d at the Hacienda club in Manchester through the late 1980s and has since played worldwide. His huge and eventful DJ history includes touring with the Stone Roses, aftershow parties for New Order, Depeche Mode, Gorillaz, and the Charlatans, and gigs in Chicago, Detroit, Zurich, Reykjavik, Dublin, Paris, Lyon, and Ibiza. In May last year (2008) he played two nights at ‘Aura’ in Lima (Peru), and has just returned from gigs in Paris and Berlin.
As well as proving to be a great night, with a loyal following, and a load of fun, ‘Sweet Sensation’ has an extra ingredient, courtesy of ‘Out of the Gloom’ who will be hosting the well funky back room; on May 2nd they’ll be presenting a bunch of talented young upstart DJ’s including DJs Steph Holland, Bodidily (Shift), and Tony ‘Spaceface’ Morris (Pinata / Universal Language).
Given how fabulous ‘Sweet Sensation’ has always been, expect quality Saturday night sounds and a very friendly crowd of sweaty music lovers.
