The World HQ Uplifting Groove
January 20, 2017 @ 11:00 pm
This Friday night upstairs…
Tom our resident DJ spins the WHQ Uplifting Groove all this Friday night. In terms of the music he plays, it’s the best, most fun & most diverse selection you’ll hear anywhere in the City.
The World Headquarters Uplifting Groove
Weekends, we run a night called The World Headquarters Uplifting Groove, which is the backbone of our Club. We use just one Dj, Tommy our resident, playing solo for 5 hours per night. This means he is nearly always upstairs both weekend nights. He also plays 8 hour sets at all the big parties that we are so well known for, like our legendary Halloween & New Year’s Eve epics.
Staying true to the Old Skool ideal, of one Dj playing the entire night, allows the Club to develop around his phenomenal record collection in a constantly evolving, ‘secret little house party’ kinda way, which no other Club in Newcastle these days, would dare even chance…
This groove ensures that nowhere else even comes close, to matching WHQ’s intimacy, atmosphere, or reputation for dropping really bomb tunes & means we have the weekend totally locked down. We also host many outside promoters who do a myriad of diverse music nights, in our downstairs room at the weekends too. See Events in the top menu, to check out exactly what’s coming up for you this weekend.
What our music is like
Records are big in World Headquarters that aren’t big anywhere else & you’ll always hear a mix of really great tunes you know, as well as ones you don’t know. There are also plenty of fantastic tunes that you’ll already love, but never thought you’d hear played in a Club. Call it eclectic, call it Balearic, it’s always exciting, great fun & jam packed, full of surprises & unexpected musical treats…
Crossing boundaries is our game & we feature loads of great vocals, outstanding conscious tunes & snippets, with none of the drug glorifying, misogynistic MTV twaddle, mainstream places peddle. It’s ‘melody central’ & at WHQ you get to hear music like Disco or Motown, in their proper context, alongside African music, Funk, Gospel, the cream of our Club classics & all the best tunes recently released. Add passion & that’s the Club – WHQ really is that far out.
We’re best known for our far out Black music, but rare Funk, Hip Hop, Soul, RnB, True House, Reggae & top worldwide exclusive breaks are just part of the deal. We believe a good record is a good record from whatever colour, genre or era & we’re always on the diverse, lush & spiritually uplifting tip, blending Black music & all styles… Our grooves bring the people together.
All the extra info
Our aim is to provide a top notch, cute, underground Club, at a really fair price. The reason we do this, is so we can be sure that everyone who is into diverse, positive music, racial harmony & having fun, has got the chance to come & be part of our cute, uplifting, happening, little scene.
We are open until at least 4.00 am, sometimes 5. You don’t need to be a WHQ member to come, all friendly people are welcomed here.
All our drinks are at pub prices & you’ll be surprised at how low things are compared to all other places. So celebrating your weekend with us, doesn’t cost the earth & even when it’s your round, you’re laughing. We really are the best value for money your club dollar buys & the best weekend party anywhere in the country.
Come & see us this weekend & remember, that a night at the World Headquarters Club costs you half as much as going dancing anywhere else & it’ll be at least twice as good! Feel free to come down this Friday or Saturday, you’ll be really, really glad you did… x
