While we may be named after a London street renowned for its medical specialists, we can’t guarantee any scientifically proven legitimacy to our claim that to avoid retina damage during Friday morning’s solar eclipse, it’s best to watch “through bleary eyes”.

However we can categorically verify that we’re kicking the weekend off tonight regardless, as we welcome the Thrillhouse gang to the decks for a residents and friends special until 4am. They’ve also kindly assembled the latest edition of our #weekendstartshere playlist, featuring the kind of eclectic mix of breezy hip-hop, punchy house and soulful disco that you can expect to get an airing tonight.

Filling the coveted post-eclipse slot will be grime legend Slimzee on Friday night for Gett Off’s latest party, then it’s over to Make It Real on Saturday who host a mouth-watering ensemble of UK underground talent, with Neville Watson and Glasgow imprint Dixon Avenue Basement Jams swinging by for a sweaty house and techno rinse-out.

Next we’re delighted to welcome some new faces to The Harley, with The Engine Room setting up their stall of funk, breaks, hip hop and house on Thursday night (March 26th), before it’s over to the old hands of Dusk Til Dawn (Fri 27th) and huddle (Sat 28th) to keep the dancing energy ticking along nicely over the weekend.

For our first playlist of the third month, we’ve invited one of the newer additions to the Harley promoters’ stable to trawl Spotify for edition 17 of #weekendstartshere. Bluewave started life with a bang here earlier in the year, and they return tonight for another dose of reinforced grime and garage with hotly-tipped Brighton producer Moony joining them on headline duties.

The fresh blood of Bluewave makes way for the old hands at DubCafe tomorrow night, as the low-end-loving locals arrive for their latest rattling of our speaker stacks, before Banana Hill assemble friends and family on Saturday for a very worthy night of fundraising for Médecins Sans Frontières.

Next week sees Sheffield favourite Chris Page take the reins at No Policy on Wednesday (March 11th), Quality Control bring New York Brass Band to the stage on Friday (March 13th) and DJ Q and Flava D arriving on Saturday night (March 14th) for the latest edition of Gett Off, which is already guaranteed to be a roadblock.

Check out Bluewave's selection of gritty underground gems below:

Here at The Harley we’re big fans of top quality music in a friendly, non-judgemental environment – and if it’s great value for money, then all the better.

That’s part of the reasoning behind our new, completely free midweek knees-up, No Policy. Every Wednesday night we'll invite some of our favourite DJs along and give them complete freedom to play whatever they want to play, with no limitations or guidance on musical style or genre. To kick things off with a bang we’ve recruited NTS Radio show and former Boiler Room host Nic Tasker to delve deep into his record bag on February 25th, with Rinse FM’s rising star Josey Rebelle stopping by the week after on March 4th.

We’ve also fashioned the latest edition of our #weekendstartshere playlist in the No Policy spirit – check out our wide-ranging selections below.

We’ve got a jam-packed late-night schedule over the next few weeks, kicked off appropriately enough with JAM&BUN’s debut at The Harley tonight, with Amsterdam drum’n’bass crew Cheeky Monday landing here tomorrow and an ensemble of local favourites taking to the decks on Saturday for #2 of Unit 3 Sessions.

Next week sees Tasker here on Wednesday (Feb 25th), Souljam returning for another boogie on Thursday night (Feb 26th), Thrillhouse hosting Peverelist on Friday (Feb 27th) and Make It Real have enlisted PBR Streetgang as their February headliner on Saturday night (Feb 28th).

In amongst all that we have the excellent Blossoms swinging by this Saturday night for a live set as part of their UK tour – tickets available through the Harley Live website.

We’ve got a rather jam-packed fortnight ahead here at The Harley, and we’re excited to be welcoming along a mixture of both old friends and new faces.

To toast the arrival of one of those new faces, well-established Tyneside party-starters Lively Up, we've knocked up a fitting #weekendstartshere playlist ahead of their debut outing in the Steel City next Friday (Feb 13th). For that date they’ll be bringing along true UK hip-hop royalty in the form of Rodney P, so we've assembled a selection of some of the genre’s finest moments.

Before that we’ve got The Golden Boy also making his Sheffield debut for Gett Off tonight, DubCafe have enlisted drum ‘n’ bass legend Doc Scott for their latest party here tomorrow night, while Steel City Groove will be joined by Paul ‘Trouble’ Anderson on Saturday for a night of expertly selected soulful house.

Kicking off the weekend nice and early next week we’ve got Why Front spinning tropical house and afrobeat on Thursday night, then Lively Up take charge of Friday’s proceedings before we host a very special Valentine’s Day special on Saturday, with none other than DJ Luck & MC Neat stopping by to once more get our dancefloor pumping.
