    Robert was hard and funky, just like his music. No single DJ on this planet can compare to the energy that he gives forth. His tracks are fun and pounding... somtimes straying pretty far into the land of cheese. Despite this, Robert keeps it rockin' and makes it all sound GOUDA! (sorry)

    I'm not a big House-Head, but this man knows how to have fun. His scratching techniques are crazy... as witnessed on his South Park interlude as touched upon above.

    On the Comfort Zone side of things... That place has really grown up nicely. I hadn't been there since September and it was a very welcome suprise to discover that the little after-party that could, still can!

    The place was packed, yet there were no lines anywhere. The coatcheck, the bouncers, the bar staff... everyone had their shit together. There were no thuggy jerks and very few stripper chicks. There was definately a spirit of togtherness that I thought was long dead. And the Sound... Ohhhhh the sound was sooooo sweet. The PA has been seriously beefed-up... IT SOUNDS SO GOOD! It could rip Turbo to shreds any day. But then again, so could two Dixie Cups and a length of twine.

    I'm a pussy shaver... shave that pussy!

    (Actually I'm not, but then neither is Robert)

    Ghaaaaaa! If you're comparing a sound system to Turbo's - it can't be as bad as you say it is!

    Turbo's got amazing sound, when you consider the sheer size of the place. I challange the board to show me a club of comperable size and openess with a better sound system.

    Sorry, but I have to strongly disagree. When Turbo first opened it was great, but they have juiced the subs to the point of cracking. Its very loud in Turbo now, but there is very poor seperation between mids and lows... for a kickass P.A. this is a first sign of neglect. And Turbo is not that big compared to Guvernment (who they claim to have better sound than)... ratio-wise that makes it comparable to Comfort Zone. My two cents.

    Whoa there, donkey. The Comfort Zone system is not being compared to Turbo (and shouldn't be). It was definately pounding, but the high end needed a bit of tuning and there needed to be a bass bin at the back of the floor(near the rail)....apart from that, it was great.

    I don't see why size of club merits a dismissal of sound quality. Good sound is good sound whether its coming from a pair of headphones, a set of computer speakers or a club-sized PA. I think Comfort Zone has done an excellent job of rounding out their sound... despite having a smaller capacity, a lower cover charge and a smaller budget than Turbo. I still maintain that Turbo weak by comparison. But then again, this was supposed to be about Robert...

    Oh, and please don't call me a donkey. I'm more of a sway-back mule.

    ^^^no, it hasn't. People are just more used to routine visits from our lovely 'boys in blue'. When i initially walked in i actually found the place to be sketchier x2 than i remembered it - there was still a lot of sexual aggression between the buff boys and the stripper chicks (rather irritating, actually) and there was still a large number of wacked out characters being idiots on the dancefloor......BUT, i kid you not, the entire vibe of the place magically changed when Robert slapped down his first track with that big ol' grin on his face. Everyone was feeling it. It was definately a lesson in how much your vibe as a dj/performer can affect the masses. And i can guarentee that he made a few new 'Gauthier addicts' that night....

    I got there only minutes before Robert came on so I missed the metamorphosis.
