Club review: Sex On the Beat, Wed 30th Jan

first_imgWhere can I begin with Sex on the Beat? With the beat. The night is all about the music: a fusion of dirty electro, underground house and, essentially, incredible beats – a sharp contrast to the usual array of RnB and cheese that dominates student nights at Filth. This week, the music progressed increasingly further from the Sex on the Beat regular DJs’ dirty electro house, introducing more accessible ‘standard’  Drum n Bass and House tracks (did I hear Pendulum at Sex on the Beat?!) with guest DJs from Radio1.This didn’t, however, destroy the originality of Sex on the Beat. It merely meant the night transformed and altered as the hours flew by. From electro to house to breaks to drum n bass, there was no stopping the movement. The resident DJs Sam Frasier and Darren (aka Dee Styles), aim to ensure that this diversity and variety is maintained at the Sex on the Beat: “the ethos of the night is to educate the crowd with a variety of house music that will be pleasing to everyone’s ears…we aim to cater for everyone’s musical tastes.”But the wonderful thing about Sex on the Beat isn’t just the beat…it’s the crowd. Wednesday saw a mix of Oxford and Brookes students all together for the same purpose: ‘raving’ the night away. Glow bands were given out on the door and with the usual array of funky outfits, a bit of glow paint (demonstrating the growing ‘nu rah-ve’ culture) and a few pairs of sunglasses here and there, it was a colourful eclectic picture of clubbers. Last Wednesday certainly demonstrated this and it ensured that Sex on the Beat will be a dominant feature of student clubbing from now on. Unlike normal student club nights, there’s no need to start queuing at some un-godly hour of 8.30pm (did I hear you say Bridge?), because it’s open until the early hours.The next Sex on the Beat will be on Wednesday 13th February: a Valentine’s special on till 5am. Tickets will be available for this night at the Hobgoblin Pub on the Cowley Road, or via Facebook. Watch this space…Sex on the Beat could prove to be the best Beat in Oxford.  by Catherine Molonylast_img read more

Goalkeeper Adrian pens new West Ham deal

first_img “This is a proud moment for myself, my family and friends and I am really happy to have signed my second contract with the club,” Adrian said. “I feel really happy for the club and the fans. I never imagined this kind of relationship with the fans. I spent 16 years at Real Betis and it was difficult to leave your home. But from the moment I arrived in London the West Ham fans had a special relationship with me. “For me this is a really good moment and I just want to enjoy it. This is my third season here and I want to stay here for a long time.” West Ham have enjoyed a strong start to the season and currently sit third in the Barclays Premier League table ahead of Saturday’s visit to Sunderland. The club are also set to move into the Olympic Stadium for the start of the 2016/17 campaign and Adrian admits their new home was a factor in his decision. “Next season is really important for the club,” Adrian said. “I have enjoyed playing at Upton Park and I want to enjoy playing in the new stadium. “It is a big step for the club and I am really excited about this moment.” Adrian has committed to remaining in east London until 2017 while the Hammers have the option to extend the Spaniard’s stay by a further two years. The 28-year-old moved to West Ham from Real Betis in June 2013 and has since cemented his place as the club’s first-choice stopper.
