Our great friend Ali B’s weekly Saturday night Paradise sessions have been an instant hit since they started around two years ago, with the sole purpose of bringing the funk back to the mean streets of West London. All sorts of established DJs have been down, playing their alternative selections, mostly unannounced, alongside Ali B’s own eclectic style, seamlessly taking in everything from blues and funk to rock, soul, dub and disco. The ever faithful crowd regularly let loose on the low-lit dance floor, with the only complaint being the late night long queues and Ali B’s notorious ‘request are £10’ sign, which to this day, as far as we know, nobody has ever actually paid....



Ali will be coming back to The Hifi club soon. So keep your eyes peeled.
