Everything you missed from the world of dance music this weekend


Dixon On Open To Close Tour This Spring

Resident Advisor's No.1 DJ for four years running, Dixon is a name that needs no introduction. The German power house has just announced an eight date, open to close tour. So there's been no better time to try and catch the master at work. Kicking off in Milan, he'll be taking in Paris, Berlin, Tokyo, Amsterdam and of course London, where he'll be taking controls of The Box for an all night session. Tickets and more info here.


Goldie Announces Three Vinyl LP, The Journey Man

After receiving an MBE in the 2015 New Year's honours list and vocally campaigning against Fabric's closure, Goldie has been a busy man recently. But it appears he's been even busier than we first thought, as he's just announced The Journey Man, a double album of 28 original tracks. The work marks his first album release in nearly 20 years, since 1998's Saturnz Return. The album is due out in June on Metalheadz.


A Daft Punk DJ Chart From 1997 Uncovered

1997 was probably the most important year in Thomas and Guy-Man's lives. It was the year "Da Funk" saw an official rerelease on Virgin, the year Homework debuted, and of course the year of the legendary Alive 1997 tour. It's interesting, then, to look back at some of their influences from this most pivotal of years. The duo compiled a top ten chart for Germany's Groove magazine and the results are a little surprising. Have a listen to the tracks below.

10. "For The Lover In You" - Babyface

9. "Freedom Of 76" - Ween

8. "Road Tour" - Robert Armani (Dave Clarke Remix)

7. "Gangstas Make The World Go Round" - Westside Connection

6. "Fly Life"- Basement Jaxx

5. "Spinal Scratch" - Thomas Bangalter

4. "Venus" - Cheek (DJ Gregory remix)

3. "Funk Phenomena" - Armand Van Helden (Johnick Manhattan Special Mix)

2. "Chicago Southside" - CZR

1. "Deeon Does Disko" - DJ Deeon
