    What a truly awesome thing B-Line Productions have started.

    A beautiful combination of breaks, funky house, hard house... friends, strangers, martinis, Corona's. I had a fantastic time. With good reason.

    I was in the company of many wonderfully warm and inviting people, the place was very nice, clean, almost posh, with the very comfortable feel of a friend's basement. The music was so enjoyable, started out chill progressed to harder more dancey type music.

    not to mention the cheaper than ever cover, FREE for ladies before eleven. What more could you ask for.

    deffinitely a night I will be returning to in the future!

    YES, what a great start to what i'm sure will be a successful night! Started off nicely with the sweet breaks (I think it was Angus from the board? way to go bro, that was a sweet set!) and then on to ruckus for some mad house! the scratching and track selection just got better and better as the night wore on!

    great to see so many many people out on a thursday!

    great work b-line crew!

    Wow, what a fantastic night.
    The beats were great from beginning to end, the venue was gorgeous, the vibe was electric and it seemed as though everyone had a huge smile on their face! :D Couldn't have asked for better support on the Opening night, although those of you pulling the early exit styles missed out on a fucking insane set by DJ Ruckus! :eek: Ian described it best.

    I ended up with a CD too, and it's absolutely wikked. Ruckus threw in some really dirty basslines and his tracks were killer. I'm so proud this boy is from London! Props to him for keeping up the energy towards the end of the night.

    The Funky 4/4 residents impressed as well, giving the crowd a taste of what this night is all about. Nice work by Finch and Madhatter, and of course to Ian for tossin down a few tracks to close off the evening.

    Thanks to everyone who came out, (especially the GrooveKat boyz ;) ) and made the night such a success. I'm looking forward to next week already!! :D

    i concur with Moez said. Milanos is a great, cozy yet spacious venue that was filled with great tunes and a great crowd. and maaaaan, does ruckus ever know how to throw down daaayuum, with silky smooth scratching to boot.

    a big cheers to matt and ian for starting this up! i'm lookin forward to next week ;)

    I wasn't there but I know my boy Ruck would tear it up good.. he always impresses! But from the sounds of it this night will take off. I have yet to check out Milano's and I definitely will now.

    Thanks a lot guys.
    You made me late for work, I slept in past 9... doh :D

    It was a great night, playing some pool, having a few drinks and seeing lots of smiling friendly faces...

    DJ Finch was great, but not what I expected, Jo told me he was gonna spin filtered french house... like WTF JO :)
    Madhatter was good for breaks, not the stuff I prefer but some tracks got me moving.
    Ruckus was rocking it, that boy can scratch up a storm and was into the music, which I love watching.
    Any DJ that boogies all night and throws down a wicked set like that gets mad props in my books.

    Ian was great for the few tunes I heard.... I'll have to steal some of his vinyl next time I see his record bag laying around :D If he wont' let me spin back to back with him.

    I'll post some pics from last night, later on.

    Ya, cuz I don't know jack about music!! :p

    Finch is a very versatile DJ, and I had no idea which direction his set was gonna take. Given the theme of the evening though, I should have guessed it wouldn't go that way...

    Then again, apparently I have a pretty hard time thinking for myself... LIKE WTF KENNY!! :p

    Well Laura, unlike you, I have my priorities straight, and I came out despite having an hour and a half class presentation at 9am the next morning ;)

    It's been awhile since I've been to Milano's - and I totally forgot just how nice it is. I think Jo summed it up with the contrast of posh yet basement-like.

    The music was great - saw a bit Finch's set, and it was nice. Then the breaks came on, which was nice as it gave me a chance to socialize ;) Then on came Ruckus - I swear to god every time I looked up all I could think was "Fat Albert" - which was a really cool thing, it added some funk to an already funkafied set. I'd heard about his scratching abilities before, but they definetely need to be seen to be appreciated.

    Overall, I had an awesome night - If all goes well I'll be back next week to check out tommysmalls and j-mat...

    I also showed up last night, albeit at about 1:15 a.m. and found that numerous people were still representing. Nice to see. Lots of heads had left to sleep and prepare for their friday responsibilities. Fortunately for me, there were still people looking to share shots and listen to the funky sounds of Ruckus. Fun fun fun.

    All in all, i spent an hour there, but wish i had been there the whole night. Hopefully next week I'll be able to arrive at a more timely hour.

    Cheers, and thanks to Matt and co for throwing the jam. Well done.

    I spy with my little eye.....

    Great tunes, enjoyed madhatter's set, and ruckus threw down some crazy shit.

    I have never seen that many Tribe members in one location. I think I saw everyone of you (based on various pictures from the board) - they include - Vinder, Moez, Futronic, TommySmalls, Air-Bag and more.

    Looking forward to checking out more Thursday nights.
