There were some very rough looking motherfuckers in theredan wrote:I know i sound like a snob but it was a bit rough really.
Saying that though, I didn't see any trouble, and the beauty of a big rave is that if you don't like tha look of somebody you can just find another space to flail around in :D
I loved Ratty's set. Before I went I would have never expected I was going to hear tracks like Chaos & Julia Set 'Fear The Future' and DOPE 'When I was Young' being dropped - the guy went seriously dark, and his mixing was a joy to behold. Although I know what you mean about it falling mostly on deaf ears, but then what's the alternative? Do what Ratpack do? Fuck that.
As well as Ratty, I thought Swan-e played a surprisingly good set. Shock C was pretty good too. Ellis Dee started off completely shit but pulled it around later on when he started playing 'Dance The Dream' and stuff like that... tunes I actually remember him playing!
Mickey Finn and Joe Peng played a great 97 D&B set, and was nice to see Finn actually using vinyl, whodafunkit?
Downside to the event was the sound levels where up and down all night which was irritating. Stupidly quite at some points, and pounding out at others. Also I was sick of getting hit with those grimey fucking beach balls that had been festering on the filthy floor all night. Oh, and it was stupidly hot in there! Wearing an old long sleeved Dance Planet T-shirt was a big mistake...
All in all, I enjoyed it. Considering going to the next one on the strength of CJ Bolland, Ratty, Pilgrim, Producer, and Ramos :)
