If there is one place where we find the most inspiration & then come with our ideas, it is the clubbing dancefloor, this morning being no exception, as we pondered over the continuance of our “Preview The Review” (PTR) reports. Now, while they have proven really popular and have also given us a vehicle where we can report on our clubbing cavorting much more swiftly than we did with our full reviews, the last two months have seen these PTR’s take the place of our full length versions, which have somewhat fallen by the wayside. Mind you, this is no surprise, as life in Disco Matt land has become incredibly busy in the last few months, the demands on our time stretching substantially, meaning that certain parts of our activity have suffered under the strain, our full length reviews one such area.
So with an overdue list stretching back to Barcelona in April, we thought it was high time to take some action by re-adjusting the balance of our review reporting, thus changing the angle of our PTR style reports to make them more like our full length versions but in mini form and what we will now term as “Bite Size Reviews”. Now, if you have been keeping in touch with our PTR’s, which were devised in February, the bite size phrase will be a familiar one to you and one which we feel ties in well with our nibble size reviews, delivered via Twitter tweets, another invention (thanks to a dear D.J. friend) which has really taken off since we launched it in Beyond on 2nd May. Plus with that full reflection backlog growing by the day, we thought it was high time we gave the bars, clubs & events we cover a little more justice in our fresh felt reflections, rather than having them wait for the full review, a wait which has become far too long for some.
That said, we will be continuing with our traditional length reflections, which we will now term as “Full Size Reviews”, proper service on these being restored as soon as possible, although, as demand dictates, we may need to pick & choose which bars, clubs & events get this full size review coverage, thus the need to up the ante with re-styling our PTR’s. In the meantime, we are committed to delivering the following overdue ones to you, although they will most likely be simple extensions of our existing PTR’s to include those all important intro & outro paragraphs, not least to speed through the delivery of this now considerable backlog.

Plus we have two special reviews to still ring you, firstly our full size review of Roger Waters in concert at The O2 Arena from 15th May, plus a feature length full size review of our three day sortie around Soho during the first week of May, this one to be titled “Soho Society Social Soiree Showdown”.
So, we definitely have our review work cut out, this being no better a time to address the backlog, plus re-adjust our reflections and make the flow much more smoother, that flow henceforth being from nibble size, to bite size, to full size, all meaning that our review coverage will be as complete & conformist as can be. And having nibble size review tweeted our way through Beyond this morning, where the inspiration for this change came from, what better way to kick off than with our new style bite size review of Beyond’s “Summer Season Launch” which, like all our reviews from now on, can/will be found in our “Review” section ONLY (makes sense we think). Plus, as if we need to remind you, don’t forget you can follow our nibble size review tweets by going to http://twitter.com/discomatt and tuning in live or even becoming a full on follower & checking at your leisure, leaving us to simply say, make sure to “Go There! Be There! tweet tweet!!! (DISCO MATT)
