Just wanted to say a big "thank you" to Helena, Sebastian, Jonte, and Joppe for putting on such an amazing night - Function has become my favorite night anywhere to hear (and play) all kinds of soul music, whether it be 60s, 70s, crossover, or funk. The Function residents were very generous to invite me back for a second guest spot this year, and Lynne and I had an absolutely wonderful time DJ'ing and dancing to everyones' great sets all night.

All their hard work building this night up and promoting it so well has really paid off - I think the final tally was something like 520-540 through the doors last Saturday, leaving the dancefloors in both rooms well packed. Already looking forward to my next trip to Malm¶!

Many thanks again to the residents for all their generosity over the course of the weekend - personally, I think a traditional feast of black soup and goose should precede any DJ night!

- honky

ps - So nice to hear Willie Makkit properly loud out in a club! Nice one, Helena! smile.gif

Wise words! That's proper Viking style you know. The more food feasts the merrier. :rolleyes:

We're also already looking forward to your next visit!

I've posted some new mixes for download from me and Sebastian here:


including a lot of the tunes in our playlists.
