    Oct 28th, 2000, Massive Productions presents; ????????.
    Now nothing has been released about this party yet but I do know some details already and all I can say is that this is THE party to be at in the next few months. All I can say is that a hint as to who the headliners are is "Plus 8 Classics Tour", to check the Massive website, http://www.massive-productions.com , in a few days for more info and that flyers should be out next week.

    Quantum was last night, the party went fairly well except for a few flaws.

    First off the headliner DJ Sneak did not show.

    Secondly the party took place in Windsor, a 1 hour drive from Halifax and the shuttle buses stopped running in the middle of the night despite the "every hour on the hour promise", good thing I was able to get a ride home, hehe.

    all and all I would say that the party was fun but there were obviously some problems.

    I would rate it 6/10.

    Superfine was last night.

    Interesting new venue, a large wharehouse at the back of The West End Mall. The sound in the main room was rather poor due to the echo. The second room was very small and ended up being more of a chill out room.

    What is the point of having two rooms when they are both playing techno the whole time? I would have prefered if there was a bit more musical variety.

    I would rate this party a 7/10

    I missed fire, as I went to a party in PEI instead but I did make it out to Ice but only to flyer. From what I say it looked like your run of the mill party. Although I didn't really attend the two events so I can't really say for certain. in full based on what I saw I would say for both events:

    7/10

    "Frenzy" was tonight. The electropolis was used again as the venue. I prefered the one room format with two chill spaces. One of the techno headliners didn't show, I think it was Juan Atkins but I couldn't care less as minimalistic techno isn't my cup of tea. I had a good time and would give the party:

    8/10

    Next Saturday (Nov. 4) is 'Hardcore Resurrection' (my party). Finally some proper hardcore in Halifax. No more of this cheesy disco house and minimalistic techno.

    We have a brand new never before been used venue with a capacity of around 300. We are the only event in Halifax on Sat. Nov. 4 although there are parties both in Antiginish and Moncton. See the "Hardcore in Halifax" post for more info.

    In advance I give this event a totally unbiased 10/10 [​IMG]
