OMAR S | CLUBS PREVIEW
Doppler & Blue Honey @ The Carpet Club, Cardiff
Fri 1 Dec
Well here’s one which has come from leftfield. Just as Buzz’s listings were getting polished off for the month came the announcement that Doppler and Blue Honey were teaming up to bring Detroit don Omar S to town. Naturally then, we had to slam on the handbrake, pull a dramatic U-turn and stop the press.
This is the first time the FXHE Records man has come to Cardiff. But this is an extra-large announcement not just because of the sheer heft of the name, it’s because this is the first outing for The Carpet Club, a brand new city centre venue which is still shrouded in secrecy. Here’s what we know: it’s in a building which used to be a ‘leisure space’ on St Mary Street. And from the exclusive snaps we’ve been privy to, it still looks like it’s got a lot of original fixtures and fittings, so it’s a unique place to go and dance. Plus it’s got a designated chillout area, something you don’t see too often these days. We’ll let you do your own detective work and see if you can deduce where it is.
Support comes from Doppler’s own Jessie Belters, who’s spent 2017 carving out a reputation as one of south Wales’ most impressive selectors. What a way to kick off your advent calendar.
