Last weekend I was lucky enough to visit Corsica Studios for a masterclass from Dinky and Mike Huckaby. Ramping up proceedings in the newly revamped room 2, Panorama Bar resident Dinky captivated the excited crowd with Midland’s ‘Final Credits’ and Move D’s ‘I Gave My Love’. To foster the vibe, she used garage infused techno rollers, muses of deep, jazzy house and Shan’s Nu Groove inspired rave anthem ‘Caliber’.

As we delved deeper into the night, tracks such as Kerri Chandler’s instrumental remix of RiskSoundSystem’s ‘This Sound Is Yours’ and Mr G’s ‘Music For All’ kept us going till dawn. The maestro Mike Huckaby certainly knew how to keep us grooving and both DJs displayed their might with carefully crafted and seamlessly navigated sets, making yet another memorable night at Corsica Studios.
