This year Skiddle and fellow music-miscreants Uber – one of the UK’s best kept clubbing secrets nestled in Carlisle – have got their heads together and come up with something very special indeed at The Wickerman Festival. The balance of hot and exciting talent alongside a smattering of household names and genuine legends provides the perfect environ for rave led abandon, set in the beautiful, lush and rolling hills of Dundrennan.
For the rave focused elements of Wickerman it is symbolic that Skiddle should be at the forefront. As the leading listings service for clubbers across the land, Skiddle has been providing the wide eyed dance fiends from across the nation with information about where to go and what to do for what seems like aeons, the first destination of any respectable rave explorer. And that knowledge certainly translates into booking nous, with the line-up reflective not only of the hottest and biggest acts, but of the finest fresh talent that has picked the eye of Skiddle and their collaborators, Carlisle funkateers Uber. And now they have announced some very special news relating to one very special guest...
Not content with Danny Rampling giving a master class set at The Wickerman in the Skiddle.com Showcase Skirmish arena, he will also be giving a class on master-classing, if you will – Danny is hosting a DJ Workshop on Saturday 25th which is open to all BUT numbers are strictly limited to 50 people. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to find out more. For someone with such a mercurial standing in the dance scene this is a unique chance to be shown how it’s done by one of the true enduring legends of the scene, an inspirational insight into how Danny DJs and to glean some tips for budding DJs and aspiring players alike. This further adds something extra special to The Wickerman and it’s expected the places will fill very quickly. Also please note this is for UNDER 18s only – please bring ID.
Also look out for a similar workshop from young star Sonny Wharton – more details of that to follow.
Danny is renown globally as one of the most influential DJs – ever. Few people bring anything back from a holiday bar sunburn, a damaged liver or maybe the clap, yet Rampling managed to bring back a whole scene when experiencing Ibiza in 1987. One of the most integral forces within dance music’s history, his relationship with Uber is rich. The legend itself works that Uber themselves helped coax out of a certainly premature retirement in 2007, unleashing a new lease of life in one of the Ibizan father figures and a man whose name, really, needs no further qualification.
