RAFA SOUL CLUB NEWTON AYCLIFFE Details

ONE OF THE BEST NORTHERN SOUL DJ's IN THE UK WILL BE OUR SPECIAL GUESTS ON 7th JUNE 2014............

COLIN LAW FROM SCOTLAND!!!!!!!! AND MANCHESTER'S BRETT FRANKLIN.................

COLIN LAW

The legendary Scottish DJ who was pushing the 60Ts newies back in the mid eighties. Colin is one of the main promoters of the Peebles weekender at the Hydro Hotel & Spa in Scotland ( 5th & 6th September 2014). His sets and the records he was discovering are still a big part of a lot of DJ's sets to this day. Still collecting, Colin's influences are broad spectrum from Hip Hop to Jazz to vocal house 6Ts, 7Ts, 8Ts and Northern to the more funky side of soul tunes at the moment. His set at Lifeline did not disappoint he still hasn't lost his infectious enthusiasm to play top cool tunes - lookout the Duke is back in the mood!

Unfortunately Kitch can't make it so hopefully Colin will bring a few friends with boc=xes of records to jump in and take over the night.................

Just got the news that Brett Franklin has confirmed his appearance at the RAFA Club for the soul night on 7th June.

Brett Franklin got into Northern Soul back in the early 1980"²s attending the legendary Clifton Hall all-nighters, listening to Rare Souls finest dj’s such as Richard Searling and Pat Brady, also attending the fledgling modern soul all dayers in Sheffield around the same time, (With Searling, Sam and Fenn) he quickly got the bug for collecting original rare American soul vinyl.

This event is now over. Look up now to read the latest reviews of this soul event

Unfortunately Kitch can't make the night so apologies to anyone expecting to hear his dj sets at the club........ not to worry as we've asked Colin to bring along some of the "Roughcut" crew from Scotland and hopefully have more Scottish DJ's on the night of the 7th June. This will be a great night of hard thumping Northern Soul......Pacey without a doubt.

Regards Paul.

Sad to see /hear that Kitch has pulled out ,but if someone told me Colin Law was the only guest next week ,I'd have been more than happy ! So to have my good friend Brett Franklin also appearing as guest is a brucey bonus :)) Those who attend already know that the residents and local guests already have an abundance of quality rare and original to satisfy most venues ,so this one is gonna be very special ! Miss it at your peril ,but that said ,if Colin and Brett can travel all the way from Scotland and Sheffield ,get yourself along and give em a proper North east welcome :) Seeya on Saturday :)

I am looking forward to my second trip down to the Rafa club after the fantastic time I had djing with the guys last year, themusic, that night was outstanding and the crowd was well up for listening and dancing to fresh cool tunes. This little gem of a club keeps pushing the boundaries with the music and the dj's that they have as guests, it's fast becoming a place where dj's look forward to going and playing rare northern soul. if you have not checked this club out  and your from the north east come and join us - this place does not disappoint.
