The Honeycomb. Edinburgh. Thu 31 May.

Funky drum 8. bass from DJ Queen B

Make no mistake, a new drum & bass night called Behave? is set to take Edinburgh audiences by storm. As you read this, the intricate machinations of a military-style campaign are working overtime to guarantee its success. The press release is literate, the website (www.behavehoney.co.uk) is not only up but it also does all the relevant functions it purports to do, the pre-club sessions from the resident DJs have built interest and all this is co-ordinated by a PR company set up specifically to manage a Thursday night out.

‘Calm down,’ you cry. ‘lt’s only clubbing for chrisakes,’ but promoter and resident DJ Clare Conlon aka DJ Queen B ain‘t listening. Along with her business partner Daniel Boyd, Conlon has devoted a great deal of time and personal expense to making her night succeed. ‘We realised that's what it takes,’ she explains. ‘That’s what makes a difference. People come

because you’ve done your promotion.’

Blanket promotion aside, those who choose to sample Conlon’s product are unlikely to be disappointed. After earning her stripes with support slots at major drum & bass monthlies Manga and Jungle Magic (now defunct), Conlon aims at providing a night that will stretch the accepted envelope. ‘The idea is that it will appeal to a lot of different tastes, to people that didn’t think they liked drum & bass,’ she says. ‘There’ll be a lot more funky, soulful elements so it will appeal to a wider audience than Jungle Magic


As well as broadening the remit, Behave? will incorporate back room DJ delight from hip hop, funk and soul player Adam Bray (the Project) and Conlon’s sets in the main room will be augmented by live percussion from guest tabla player Crishna and vocal contributions from the up-and-

coming MC Bane.

All this, plus free mix CDs and free drinks await the potential punter of this enthusiastic new night. And, if we haven’t sufficiently stressed the sheer vision at work here, it’s worth noting these drinks and 003 will of course be served by promotional staff wearing specially—designed

uniforms. (Catherine Bromley)
