Big Beat Re-union Belfast, Friday 13th of May @ Love and Death Inc.  


I've just gotten word from the well known DJ Gregz McCann that the big beat re-union is coming to Belfast at the new club 'Love and Death Inc'. I've never been to the new club but I've heard it's good and they do food as well during the day so I hope to give it a review soon. I used to be a big fan of Greg when he DJ'ed over at Laverys so I'm sure this will be a good night.

Here's the press release I was sent:

A phenomena has been happening in clubs across the UK over the last year as Big Beat is well and truly back. The brainchild of legendary DJ Cut La Roc, Big Beat Reunion shows have been taking place in London, Brighton, Birmingham, Bristol and a host of other towns and cities nationwide. Acts that have featured include such luminaries as The Dub Pistols, Propellerheads, Jon Carter, Aphrodite, Freestylers, Elite Force and the undisputed king of Big Beat, Fat Boy Slim.

Big Beat fused a number of styles including Hip Hop, Breakbeat, Drum and Bass, Techno, Soul, Funk and House combined with classic rock and disco samples, this movement brought Indie kids to the dancefloor and let them party all night.

It’s this fusion party ethos that have made Big Beat Reunion club nights such a massive success, and which are now being brought to Belfast as local DJ/Promoter Gregz McCann has lined up a series of events in what has to be Belfast’s coolest club; Love & Death Inc.

First up is a DJ set from the scene’s ultimate party band Bentley Rhythm Ace as one half of the dynamic production duo and one time Pop Will Eat Itself member Richard March makes a return to Belfast for a party set of eclectic sounds and dancefloor focused beats. 

Bentley Rhythm Ace were formed when Richard and Mike Stokes met while scouring boxes of second hand vinyl at car boot sales. A mutual love of rare grooves and off beat sounds was discovered and led to the pair developing a sound all of their own which manifested itself on their self titled debut album which was released on Skint records. The closing track from the album "Return of the Hardcore Jumble Carbootechnodisco Roadshow" seemed to encapsulate the band’s sound in terms of both live and DJ sets.

Richard will be bringing a bag of tunes from a very broad spectrum mixing tracks where the samples were sourced with underground floor fillers. All of which will be delivered in that classic fun filled Bentley’s style which has endeared them to lovers of music across the globe.

Support on the night comes from Belfast’s own beat behemoth Gregz McCann.
