Just back from a great weekend of partying at the final Southport Weekender, (ideally timed as a temporary diversion from the depressing tragedy of the General (S)election.) Once again, David Rodigan and EZ destroyed the Funkbase, with hot sets also from Shortee Blitz, Manny Norte and DJ Diggz, (plus a couple of shockingly poor ones from two veteran jocks who should have known better!) Other highlights included soulful disco sets from John Morales and JP, and live music action from Shaun Escoffrey, The Rebirth and Jarrod Lawson.
A full review for Black Sheep Mag will be coming soon, along with pics and a couple of video snippets of Rodigan showing why he remains in a one-off class of his own. After 28 years, this annual shindig of feel-good black dance music vibes is sure gonna be missed!
