Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat. To give them a chance to shed a few pounds, we’ve got a week-full of dancing lined up that should provide ample opportunity for a spot of tail-feather shaking.

To get us in the mood whilst we oil our feathers, we’ve assembled a selection of tracks that reflect the various different promoters that have so far stepped into our Crimbo Clash arena – Dusk Til Dawn kicked things off against Quality Control last week, while Roots and Dub Café went head to head last night in a battle of the bass. Next week sees two of our favourite local house and disco-loving crews, Nice Like Rice and Lunar, round out the competition in style.

Check out the Harley Crimbo Clash #weekendstartshere 012 playlist below for a taster of what to expect, and what’s been so far:

Our resident hip hop and R&B gunslingers UGLY have stepped up for edition 011 of our #weekendstartshere playlist, taking a moment out from sipping Moet in their gold-plated jacuzzi to collate some of the biggest old skool party-starters Spotify has to offer.

For their monthly outing tonight they’re teaming up with the Steel City disco dons Huddle for a special blend of funk and boogie throughout the night, with a Nintendo Gamecube set up in the corner for those who just want to play Def Jam Vendetta until the early hours.

Then on Friday night we’re delighted to be hosting one of the UK’s finest DJs of the past decade, Plastician, for what’s nailed on to be a killer garage and grime set. Then on Saturday we welcome Midland to the DJ booth for a night of wide-ranging house and techno – tickets have been disappearing at a startling rate for this one, and there are only a few left online so hurry if you want to avoid missing out. Tickets for both Friday and Saturday nights are available on our site now.

It feels like only 10 weeks ago that we kicked off our #weekendstartshere playlists series – and, well, that’s because it was. To celebrate both this landmark, we’ve split this week’s playlist into a two-part double-header dazzler.

Taking charge of the first part of edition 010 is one of our favourite matriarchal party-starting duos, the Queens of Garage, who will once again be injecting straight-up dancefloor fire into the place tonight alongside their headliner, Rinse FM’s own queen of garage, hip hop and R&B, Yasmin.

Then as an extra special treat, our Saturday night headliner, WOLF Music’s rising disco and house star Medlar, has used his rich, wide-ranging musical knowledge to assemble a compilation of blissfully chilled cuts, perfect for caressing away the excesses of the weekend come Sunday morning.

Check out both 10-week anniversary pressies from us to you below:

This week we’ve teamed up with Sheffield’s foremost starch-loving party-starters, Nice Like Rice, for the ninth instalment of our cereal – sorry, serial - #weekendstartshere playlist. With one of the country’s finest DJs, Melé, arriving here on Friday night for a special two-hour set, the NLR gang have waded through the plentiful paddy fields of Spotify to harvest a selection of hip hop, grime and bass to kick your weekend off right.

Before that we'll be transforming the place into an all-night dance off with the help of Night Slugs associates Girl Unit and Egyptrixx, then The Speakeasy inject another dose of Prohibition-era partying on Saturday night.

Pull up a bowl and tuck into this week’s treat, #weekendstartshere 009:
