This weekend one of our favourite parties in Bristol, Sean McCabe and Ben Daley’s Southport Weekender-affiliated Good Vibrations event, celebrates its first birthday. Since they specialise in all-dayers, Saturday’s 1st birthday bash is another afternoon-till-the-early-hours affair at their regular home, The White Bear on St Michael’s Hill.
The line-up is, as usual, tasty. Having previously brought all manner of big names to the boozer (Kenny Dope, Groove Assassin etc), this time round they’ve gone for two scene veterans whose contribution to deep and soulful house music can’t be questioned: Phil Asher and Atjazz. Then there’s the boogie bar, where ourselves and Deli-G will be holding it down from 6pm onwards.
Our experience of Good Vibrations parties is that they get a crowd who know their music, are fiercely committed to the soulful side of dance music and treat each all-dayer as an excuse to have a great time from mid afternoon onwards. It promises to be a special event. We’re looking forward to digging deep into the collections and showcasing some gems… as well as some of our favourite disco and boogie party jams.
To celebrate Good Vibrations’ first birthday, and to provide something of a warm-up, our own Sell By Dave has provided a guest mix for the GV blog. You can check it out on the embedded Soundcloud player below.
