Three Thirty (330) [point blank clubbing] version One [non-stop club mix] 1998 hard house Point Road, Durban, South Africa [Martin McHale Mix] 90s





330 aka "Three Thirty" was an infamous South African nightclub, based in Point Road (in the heart of the red light dock district) in Durban, South Africa. The club opened in 1988 and quickly became popular with the 'alternative', gay, artistic community and creative / open minded clubbing crowd.
330 was the premier club in Africa to host International Superstar DJ's like (Carl Cox, Tony de Vit, Dino, Faadil, G-Force, Ian M, Madam Fiction, Malcolm Duffy, Mrs Wood, Nicky-Life, Pete Bones, Pete Wardman, Queen Maxine, Sharp Boys, Sonique, Stuart H, Tasty Tim, Tony Smith, Vicki Edwards etc)
An important open minded oasis of a venue in a closed minded society, especially as it was the beginning of the end of South Africa's apartheid period/government. At times, the club was completely WILD! International DJ Superstars like CARL COX commented "This is the wildest & best f@cking club in the world!"
330 was a famous for recreational clubbing and drugging! It was all new and fun in the late 80's - 90's! The fun set in the 00's when the venue simply became known as a place for hardcore drug use & abuse - and closed around 2008.

330 started with a BANG in the late 80s with the B-52's classic "PLANET CLAIRE" (which name checks "330 in the morning" in the lyrics)  - and most likely ended with a faceless 'hardhouse' tune 21 years later..."
Nevertheless - 330 was a special place for many years in the 80's to late 90's - and many new friends were made there :)
