This show was 1st in the global acid house chart, 2nd in the global disco house chart, 3rd in the global classic house chart and 4th in the global vocal house chart.
On Saturday the 4th October I headed over to Todmorden in West Yorkshire, just 15 miles from Manchester, to play for Sonic Tonic at The Golden Lion. It’s absolutely ages since I last made this journey to the legendary Out In The Sticks at the Blue Note where I used to play in the 1990s. Russ Marland was one of the people behind Out In The Sticks and Sonic Tonic is his night and he was DJing before me. As I expected, Russ warmed up the crowd wonderfully and the place was packed and rocking when I arrived. I was down to play an extended four hour DJ set and when I took to the decks at 11pm the atmosphere was electric. The crowd were wonderful, open minded and right up for it. I had an absolute ball playing disco, house, acid, funk and more. I loved the whole night and the crowd appeared to share my enthusiasm too. A massive thank you to everyone who came along top make this a very special and intimate night indeed.
