Alize Party at 411 Nightclub, Cardiff

Having worked pretty much incessantly for the last week or two on various features and interview transcripts, an invitation from 411 Nightclub for their Alize Party last night was naturally extremely well-received. Not only was it particularly nice to go in a relatively non-business capacity and take a rare opportunity to unwind and enjoy the atmosphere, but also to catch up with general manager Leigh and owner/ DJ extraordinaire Moniz...and be told I dance very well "for a white girl" apparently - a rare phenomenon in itself, seriously just ask anyone that has seen me dance!

Discovering 411 on my return to C-Town was like a rebirth; no more commercial shite and better still, a rare touch of class and vibrancy in an otherwise rather monochromatic scene. The Alize Party was of course no exception, providing a blend of the Dancehall riddims du jour and a mix of Hip-Hop and R'n'B that certainly hit the right spot. With a music selection spanning from Akon to Vybz Kartel, an atmosphere that remains unmatched and a successful combination of nostalgic throwbacks and current offerings, it was yet another great night from the club, which is fast-becoming my favourite place to be in the city.

If you happen to be find yourself in Cardiff next weekend, be sure to stop by (arguably) the city's premier urban club for what is undoutedbly going to be hottest urban Halloween event in town - in my humble opinion that is. Plus I'm not usually this nice in reviews, so that alone should speak volumes...
