Nürnberg Soul Weekender

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks!

Just got up after one of the most enjoyable weekends I ever had. I'm not good in numbers but I'd say about 600 to 700 people in one of the best allnighter venues you can imagine in this country. Some real quality soul music spun by John Weston, Chris Anderton, Dave Rimmer, Dave Thorley from the UK and the best DJs germany provides like Marc Forrest, Thorsten Wegner, Lars Bulnheim and so on. The atmosphere was really friendly and warm. As always enjoyed the company of John Weston the most, this guy is a party animal! Also got to say, after being to more UK venues than german ones over the last few months and being a "youngster" of 28 years, it was nice to spin some records to a slightly younger crowd, that was up for the music from nearly the beginning until the very end. The allnighters started at 22.00 o'clock and by around 23.00 o'clock the dancefloor was really full and never emptyed again, even I wasn't able to clear the floor.

Here are the records, I tried it with:

1st set; friday 23.00 - 23.30

yeah, I have to agree with Martin...it was just fabulous, from the beginning to the end. Lots of people, good music, and really good hosts...It's only the second year I was djing there,it's so cool, to have such an openminded crowd- if they love it, they dance, no matter what it is and if they know it or not, great.., it is a real highlight for me...and I am already looking forward to next year...

playlist and some funny stories will follow later..have to go to bed now...

Top Weekend all round, John. Special moment for me was watching you going off on one to Frankie Croker-Ton of dynamite, hope Chris is able to upload the video.

Add my praise of the organisation, from Osi, Stephan and Dominic. Great sets all round in both rooms.

In the Main Room

Mr Rimmer, several differing sets, (and even though I not a fan of R&B, packed the floor with the more quality end of the style) then followed with a set full of killer Detroit/Chicago tunes

Martin Walgenbach, Local DJ played his great Prophets C/U and some cool crossover :lol:

John Weston managed to arrive for all his sets almost on time, and played some nice stuff. :thumbsup:

Thorsten and Mark Forrest play nice mixed sets of Northern and Crossover, to a monster response from the main room.

Peter Werhand, Delivered a packed floor to some nice classic tunes.

Chris Anderton, delivered some monsters to light up the floor, including the Kings Of Soul.

I was able to play a mixture of lesser know and classic northern/crossover

Osi and Stephan closed the event with with a set that left everyone shouting for more.

From just after the doors open to the last record played, on both nights this room was ramed with full on dancers. This allowed the DJ's to step out of their safety zones and play truly imaginative sets. You can't beat DJing to a room of over 400 dancers.

The Modern Room

Lars played some stunning toons, including Ice, what a great number.

John Weston and Chris Anderton both played a great mix of 70's and 80's tunes

Malayka, had the room hopping to rare 7" and some cool new R&B

Fin, was as dazzling on the wheels of steel as ever, with his nice mix of classic 70's and soulful house.

Carsten, had the room buzzin, to Curtis Anderson and the great lesser know tune on Hi, by Majik.

Stepfan Kubernus, played a soulful mix of 70's and 80's winners.

I played one set of soulful house and one of 80's 7"

Although this rooms numbers were a bit up and down over the weekend, the room always had a nice buzz to it and the dancers were open minded to everything that was played.

Saturday All dayer.

As with all weekenders in europe, these are used by everyone as a place to drop in on and chill out in between shopping and sight seeing round the city. Ralf Menhert and the boys delivered a nice soulful mix of mid tempo 60's and killer crossover tunes, with a sprinkling of modern. Was great to hear Ralf play Bobby Taylor-It was a good time. This is the flip to There are roses on Sunflower.

Over all this is one of my favourite weekenders each year. People travel from all over europe to attend and they get in over 800 people mainly by word of mouth and a little advertising. It is one of the longest running weekenders in main land europe and just gets better every year. Music is always first class and people come to dance. :yes:

Not a lot to add really, fantastic weekend: great venue, good music, good attendance and lots of fun and drinks, great to see all the familiar faces again- except mine in the mirror on sunday :thumbsup: . I enjoyed to the maximum; thanks to Osi, Dominik and Stefan for organizing it. It was actually my first visit down to N¼rnberg and I must admit I obviously have missed a lot in the past years..

..and another playlist to look at:

in the main room Friday and Saturday in two spots included:

Claude huey- Drifting

O'Jays- Working on your case

Valentines- breakaway

Frank Beverly- if that's what you wanted

Shirley Lawson- One more chance

Frank Dell- He broke your game wide open

Detroit soul- All of my life

1 or 2 missing, but I can't recall it..and I think one spot wasn't full 30 minutes..anyway, downstairs in 4 spots:

Tavares-If that's the way you want it

Modulations- I'm hopelessly in love

Al Hudson- I'm about loving you

Alex Brown- I'm not responsible

100% Pure Poison- You keep coming back

Ecstasy, Passion & Pain- I'll do anything

Ed Summers- I can tell

Betty Wright- Man of mine

Jesse James- if you want a love affair

Jimmy Beaumont- Our day is here

Grace Jones- Sorry

Pages- Heartaches & Pain

Ralph "Soul" Jackson- Set me free

Solid Solution- Think about it girl

David Ruffin- Questions

Wil Collins & Willpower- Anything I can do ( I think J)

Karen Pree- Make love last forever

Midnight- Keep on walking by

Teddy Pendergrass- The more I get

Basic Black & Pearl- There'll come a day

Betty Wright - Keep feelin'

Emotions- Blind alley

Sister Sledge- Thinking of you

Bessie Banks- Don't you worry baby

Barrett Strong- Is it true

Edwin Starr- There you go

Minits- Still a part of me

Candy & the sweets- I want to give you my everything

Trammps- Stop and think

Patti Labelle- It's alright with me

Millie Jackson- Something about you

Jimmy Lewis-Is that any way to treat a lady

Intruders- A nice girl like you

N'Cole- Thank you for the love

Randy Brown- I'm always in the mood

Vincent Montana- That's what love does

Ron Hall & the Muthafunkaz- The way you love me

Leroy hutson- All because of you, again, I think

Not in the actual order at all and I probably forgot some as well, as I ended the downstairs room on Friday and as the bar staff had enough at 5.30- just when we were warming up a bit :lol: , - and turned the lights on for the fifth time, I surrendered, the last record was Ella Woods, that is something I remember,

Can't wait for 2007!
