Smoove Moves

This is what they're saying... The capital’s leading urban night, Smoove at Ministry of Sound, will enter its spring season with a new look, new format night. Never one to rest on its laurels, Smoove will reconfigure its DJ line ups and musical policy to facilitate a broader range of nights to include live and specialist events. Currently in its 5th successful year Smoove has brought clubbers a fusion of the finest UK & US urban music across Ministry of Sound’s three main rooms. Whilst continuing with its resident duo Shortee Blitz and Masterstepz, Smoove is now ready to take on a new slant. The more upfront hype edge of Hip Hop, R&B and Bashment with a smattering of UKG will be played in the BOX hosted by both Shortee and Masterstepz joined by Firin Squad(Kiss), Tim Westwood(Radio 1), Rampage, Heartless Crew(1xtra), Da Ill Kidz and more. Over in the BAR Smoove welcomes back former resident Matt White who alongside a radio cartel to include DJ Swerve(Kiss), Manny Norte(1Xtra), Ronnie Herel(1Xtra) and DJ Dodge( will present the more mainstream and reminiscent vibe of R&B and Hip Hop. The BABY BOX will now be dedicated to Soulful House and Garage from DJ’s to include old skool leavers Hermit, Daryl B and DJ Jolie. What about the UK underground? This will be brought to the club via the SMOOVE LIVE series of specialist events in conjunction with Bacardi Rum. Taking place on a bi-monthly basis these nights will be dedicated to the UK underground movement via DJ output and live artist input. Signed contracts already include Dizzee Rascal, Kano & an exclusive Roll Deep album launch showcase. Launching in April with the Shortee ‘v’ Stepz showdown on the 1st and Tim Westwood’s debut appearance on the 15th  the enhanced Smoove will continue to out perform it competitors and provide the urban clubber with a revitalised and original club experience.  (*N.B.
