Time @ Derby

Recommended Posts

Just about reached a fit enough state to do a quick review of the first nighter at Time in Derby on Saturday, so here goes:

Travelled up with a couple of friends from Coventry (and of course with the ever present sales box!). On first arrival, I was a bit dubious about the venue. Large nightclub that was a bit too bright and clean for my tastes. But after a few words with some of the staff the light were lowered which helped improve the atmosphere. Dancefloor was however brightly lit up with an array of overhead lights, not ideal but in all fairness to the organisers it was the first night at a new venue and when I mentioned concerns over the dancefloor lights they did agree and will hopefully be able to turn these off for the next night.

Soul Sam was just starting his set as we settled in and got the sales box ready, an hour of great tunes with Sam his usual enthusiastic self. At this stage though the 'feel' of the night still wasn't right for me. However over the next couple of hours there was a steady flow of familar niter faces coming in and by around 12.30 - 1am the atmosphere had arrived and just kept getting better! All too soon 6am had arrived and the overall opinion from our small travelling group on the journey home was that we had all enjoyed a great night, some great music played and a good time had by us all. A few small improvements could be made and I'm sure they will be and this will only serve to improve the whole experience.

On a personal note, was great to meet up with some old friends like Taz. Spent the first part of the night getting everyone to listen to my current fave record (which I'm lucky to have a few spares of) guess my taste isn't too bad as a couple of people bought a copy (Taz yours will be in the post on Tuesday) and then managed to convince Rob Smith to play it for me in his final spot. Must admit I was pretty shot through by 5am and I'm pretty sure I badgered him constantly until he finally put it on as the last record of the night! So thanks Rob and apologies if I kept going on about it! In fact I'm pretty sure that anyone I talked to from about 4 onwards must have thought I had escaped some kind of special home, totally forgot evreything anyone told me within about 2 minutes and was constantly getting the tracks played by the DJs confused with other things, apologies to anyone that I talked total rubbish to..but I enjoyed it!

For anyone slightly intrigued about the record mentioned, I'll post a clip up.

All in all thanks for a great night.

Adam.

PS. Spent some talking to a lady about records (memory problems so sorry but I've no idea on the name!), mentioned you were looking for a Kelly Brothers - Hanging In Here. Well I've found the copy I mentioned so if you read this then drop me a PM.

I agree with Soul45er(Adam) about the night,But it was the first nighter,the staff was friendly and that makes a change from some nightclub venues,and £2.50 a pint not bad for a nightclub.

The night went by in a flash, and it makes a change to be home in 30 mins.

Kev :D
