DANNY HOWELLS AT SHINDIG
Location: Melbourne | Lineup: Danny Howells, Peace Division.
What can be better than a sunny warm weekend? Well, one that
involves another cracking night at Shindig, the only northerly
wind here was the one generated by the waving arms of the
Enter the dark mists of Foundation in the beautiful and friendly
city of Newcastle and you could imagine you were back at the
beginning of dance culture, as the vibe is still fresh, and
after 12 years Shindig is still pushing things forward. Tonight
was the welcome return of Shindig favourite, globe trotter,
and smashing bloke, Mr Danny Howells, with support coming
from the champions of the deep funky groove, Justin Drake
and Clive Henry, aka Peace Division.
Although due to a few pesky exams the usual student population
was not too apparent, Foundation was quickly filled with the
usual mad for it clientele, who made sure they were getting
their money?s worth, by shaking their booty hard and fast
down on the dance floor.
Peace Division had the club rumbling, deep tribal style, kicking
in a few choice tracks like the latest production from Creamer
& K with Forget the World and the much requested No More
Subliminal Shit from the boys themselves. They tore at the
funk, worked the grooves and really got the place hot and
steamy ready for the travel weary Howells. Capping it all
off with their final tune Chicken Lips ? Do it Proper, and
they sure did.
Danny then launched us into his unique sexy blend of funky
driving tech, wowing the crowd with his honed mixing techniques
and giving his usual chirpy greetings to all, although the
poor fellow was absolutely exhausted from all his travelling
and insisted he was going to be sick, he held it all together
and put every ounce of love and concentration into the set.
With echotastic discosentric grooves, like Prawler?s Frisco,
working it through retro paddy synthy techno, right back again
to funky mellow energising house. We heard Matrix,
Zoo Zoo, and Lucas Konk West, somewhere amongst the hoard
And out of the darkness there came light, with Danny taking
us all up with his final track, and one of his own making,
a new funky, summery mix of Dusk till Dawn to perfectly round
off the night, well in keeping with the wonderful weather
of the weekend. Another Shindig success, that although was
down on numbers compared to other nights, didn't loose any
of that characteristic North-eastern friendly atmosphere,
with great tunes on an equally amazing sound system, Shindig
keeps on beating most clubs I've been to hands down.
