So many haters. I was expecting it to be quiet on such a cold miserable night, but somehow we squeezed 500 people into that backroom of Goodgod. Chalk it up as another victory for R&B over everything.

Stay in touch. This was just the warm up, as we bring back the Player Hater’s Ball in the coming months.

The Player Haters Ball returns to the Goodgod Danceteria. This time to pay tribute to Dr Dre’s 2001 album. Joyride and his band of merry men gave these gangsta rap classics a pimped out soul reworking, while Levins, Shantan Wantan Ichiban and Joyride in DJ mode threw down jam after jam to keep the dancefloor heaving till the early hours of the morning.

Weren’t there? Tsk! Tsk! Tsk! Here is a little taste of what you missed out on…

Every second month, it is the R&B club night for people that don’t like R&B clubs. This time round we did a little tribute to TLC. Big ups to anyone that dressed appropriately with condoms on their clothing and boxer shorts as a beanie.

Start lining up now, and you might just get in. After a sold out Destiny’s Child tribute, the Player Haters Ball is back. With a line running from the back of Goodgod down the street full of folks desperate to get in to the last party, you would think that the real Destiny’s Child was making an appearance.

It is time again for your favourite R&B Covers night. This Saturday soul outfit Alphamama will be performing two sets. The first a R&B Hit megamix, and the second a tribute to T-Boz, Left Eye and Chilli in a TLC cover set.

On the decks keeping the dancefloor heaving will be Levins, Joyride, and Shantan Wantan Ichiban.

Strictly no scrubs. No pigeons.

Player Haters Ball | Neptunes Tribute | Sat Mar 24

Player Haters Ball
There is no way this one will not be massive. After a huge R Kelly Tribute and an equally big xmas ball, this time we are paying homage to the works The Neptunes.

The Accidents, led by the Samoan John Legend, Don Joyride, will perform two sets. The first a mix of covers and originals. The second set will be pure Pharrell and Chad bangers from N*E*R*D* to Usher to Justin Timberlake to Britney and so much more.

Any Neptunes jams missed by The Accidents will definitely be played by Levins, Shantan Wantan Ichiban and Joyride when they each serve up some Hip Hop, R&B and Soul goodies on the turntables.

Each of these parties has been a sweaty night of loose dancing and folks getting it on with each other. I don’t expect this one to be any different.

Here are a few tunes that will definitely get a play.

Listen: Usher – You Don’t Have To Call

Listen: Busta Rhymes – What It Is ft Kelis

Listen: Britney Spears – Boys

Player Haters Xmas Ball | Good God | Fri Dec 23

The first one was technically a sell out. Well it would have been if we didn’t keep letting people in. This one should be just as big as our resident R&B coverband Joyride & The Accidents, will be sharing the stage with Alphamama.

We paid tribute to R Kelly at the first ball, this time expect a mix of classic and new R&B jams being performed by these two amazing soul outfits. Oh and maybe a couple of originals thrown in.

That is not all folks. Spinning hip hop and R&B on the night are DJs Levins, Shantan Wantan Ichiban and Joyride. You know this is going to be a proper party just before the Christmas break.

It is a Christmas party as well so maybe expect a Destiny’s Child style carol or two, and more drunken random hook ups than even the last one.

I keep hearing about random hook ups that happened at the Player Haters Ball. I think that is the mark of a good party. A very attractive, mixed crowd flocked to Good God Small Club for a night of Joyride and The Accidents playing R&B covers with a couple of originals, while Levins and I spin jams. Technically it was a sell out, but we kept letting people in. A hot, sweaty, drunken night of partying. Here are some photos from around 3:30am.
