Bloom Festival party @ Timbuk2, Bristol - Friday 30 March

Just a very quick pre-weekend note to let you know about a very special event happening this Friday - March 30 - at Timbuk2 in Bristol. It's a special one-off club bash from the lovely guys and gals behind the brilliant Bloom Festival, which this year takes place in early August at Dyrham Park in Gloucestershire – just up the road from Tricky Disco HQ.

Friday's Bloom club bash features two rooms of debauchery - a dirty, filthy, electronic house main room with Playtime's ace Mike Monday plus Bloom residents, and a second, party-flavoured room. It's there you'll find myself spinning alongside Cardiff's Larry Nelson - under our iDJs guise - and Funk From The Trunk hip-hop specialist Mr Lingo. We've promised Bloom something special, so you can expect all sorts of past, present and future gems from the Tricky Kitchen. Here's a flavour of what's running through my mind, in a 'random party gems' stylee…
