IN&OUTTONIGHT 18 Friday, 3 July 2009 London Lite CLUB TALK By Scott Manson I once went to a football match with Paul oakenfold. I realise this is hardly A-list material, but in dance music circles at least, the chance to hang out with the worlds biggest DJ at the time would be the stuff of a trance acolytes dreams. In comparison to most DJs, he was a good talker. We discussed his views on art, on the death of vinyl, the music industry and -- given we were watching a chelsea game from his season ticket seats -- his love for the football club. We probably had 40 minutes of decent chat throughout the game. I started writing up my day with him as soon as I got home. That quick chat had to become a 2,000-word feature by the next morning. I got into the groove and found myself using his casual insights to paint a vivid portrait of his personal life and the cultural significance of his DJing. What emerged was a psychological profile of a WEEKEND LAIDBACKANDLOWKEY Tuned in: Liam Gallagher will perform at the Roundhouse Laurent andLayo ShakeIt martha de lacey SUpERSTAR DJS TAKE OvER THE FOR SECOND-HANDERS Vintage Fashion Fair GARB yourself in age-old goodies with dresses, hats, jackets, accessories and textiles priced between hundreds of pounds and a handful of pennies.

Tube: Piccadilly Circus MARTHA DE LACEY A rriving at a club before midnight to find superstar DJ Laurent garnier bobbing his stubbly French head behind the decks is the musical equivalent of stepping into a restaurant and being handed a fillet of Kobe beef to nibble on while you wait for your table. grooving to technos king on any occasion is a rare treat and, as a very famous record-spinner usually only appearing for a nights glorious finale, being welcomed by him so early on hinted that this party promised to be a special affair. W he n T he E nd swung its gates per- manently shut in January, three p e o p l e w e r e wailing louder than anyone else; garnier -- to whom Londons party pal- a c e h a d always been a h o m e from home -- a n d Englands own double DJ favourites Layo & Bushwacka!. After all, Layo Paskin founded the club with his sister Zoe and former Shamen frontman Mr C. So when time was finally called, the boys vowed to continue making people dance. All. night. Long. Just somewhere else. And Shake it! was born. Four epic parties, staggered across this year, were planned for the warehouse beneath Southwarks Arches (plus a Shake it! tent at the forth- coming SW4 Festival on Clapham Common next month). Messrs garnier, P a s k i n a n d Bushwacka! would be our musical ringmasters and, to maintain The Ends cosily familial feel, managers, bouncers, barmen and light- i n g b o d s would be the same ones who used to run t h e f a m e d c l u b i n Serious fun: Martha, right, and friends index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html
