Just wanted to say what a fuckin excellent night. Didn’t decide to go till the very last minute but thanks to DTFR aka Bomber jacket of rudeness for the loan. Big shout to the Cutter and his crew for his hospitality and smokes…. Top night and proper roadblock

was pretty good music wise actually, i thought...i mean, all things considered. perhaps not quite enough obscurities for some of the more hardline people on here ;) but it was at least only a total anthemfest at the end.

it was absolutely rammed though. it was bugging me a bit, cos trying to get anywhere at first was near impossible. but at the same time it's pretty heartening to go to a night and not only hear oldskool other than the anthems, but for it to be totally full of people enjoying it as well!

Absolutely love it! Loved the fact it was pretty much all old ravers from days gone past and not full of plastic ravers with attitude.

Met some safe people, had a blooming good dance, thought the tunes were good (though did hear the same tunes a few times) - all in all quite possibly the best rave iv been too in a long time.

back at work today and I feel, well...rather spaced out ;-)

Really?............i heard Bunter's set at the end was set of the night? Dont actually know the fella though (mate of a mate) so not sure if it would be to my taste.

To be honest, I quite liked the look of this but there were far to many anthem bashers on the line up for me. May attend the next one (if there is one) depending on the line up seen as this one got the thumbs up.

PS, what were the room splits like? Looked to be DnB in Arena 1, Oldskool in Arena 2 with House in Arena 3?..............or were there mixed sets in all diff arenas?

i only caught the first 15 minutes or so and he played Hurt You So and Trumpton, but also a couple of other non-anthems. So possibly a mixed bag.

i was referring to Slipmatt who mostly played anthemy stuff, although even then mixed up with acapellas and so on.

when i got in there there was oldskool playing in both the main rooms, with house in the middle, so i think it was a bit of a mix.

Also as expected along with Ratpack, Ellis Dee, Phantasy, Devious D, Squirrel, Krome & Time.

Only people I was after hearing were Pigbag & Influence. Did you manage to catch them?

I think i saw Pigbag towards the beginning? To be honest I wasn't really going from a trainspotter point of view so I wasn't really checking who was playing :P

But i do reckon they got the balance right. Enough tracks people know to get the atmosphere from a big crowd, and enough less familiar tunes to stop it being too boring. I heard a few tunes I hadn't before which is always nice for an oldskool event.

That's a bit harsh...you've ignored the bit where he said "and a couple of non-anthems" ;) Which is about right I reckon...a good way of keeping the crowd interested but giving them something a bit different.

Yeh i guess so altho it all depends on what you class as non-anthems. I've heard pirate radio anthems that have been done to death as well that are called "non-anthems"..............doesnt have to be full on cheese to be a sameold.

guess it all depends whether you can enjoy yourself and hear something you've heard before at the same time i guess :p

For sure................just so long as it's something the DJ has actually used some thought in selecting.
