Clubbing in Bristol: Crazylegs at Exchange, Bristol on Saturday 16th March
Remember when the UK's clubbing scene was a haven for genre purists? It isn't any more. While there will always be nights specialising in one style or subculture, most punters are more broad-minded than they've been since the blissed-out Babel years of acid and hardcore.
Crazylegs were ahead of the curve in that respect, and their forward-thinking blend of grime, garage, house, dubstep and UK funky has made for some of the best Bristol parties of the last five years.
Their second outing of 2013 is headlined by David Kennedy, aka Pearson Sound (pictured), one of bass music's most meticulous producers, and one of its most creative DJs. Originally known as Ramadanman, he first made a name for himself at the techier end of dubstep, before expanding his rhythmic palette to include elements of grime, house, juke and drum & bass on dancefloor slayers like Work Them and Blanked. Along with Ben UFO and Pangaea, Kennedy founded Hessle Audio, one of the most influential labels in underground dance music today, while his talents as a DJ have been showcased in high-profile mix series Dubstep Allstars and Fabriclive.
Also playing on Saturday are Bloom, whose Quartz was widely acclaimed as one of last year's best grime tracks, and former Pearson Sound collaborator Midland, whose focus has moved from UK house and garage to techno in recent years.

Equally worthy of attention is Hodge, a Bristol-based producer whose skeletal house beats bridge a cavernous gorge of proto-dubstep bass. As always with Crazylegs, expect variety, class and an infectious passion for dance music in all its forms.
