    48 hours
    1.5 hours of sleep
    17 hours of work
    2 parties

    and no.. I dont do jib...

    Now on to the review.. since you all know im a freak newayz.

    There was one reason and one reason only for most peoples presence at this party. A man that goes by the name of DJ TIESTO.

    We will get to him in a moment.

    Door opens late.. nice lineup. ENOUGH cops.. and ofcourse.. the wonderful High Profile Security team.


    Ravestar used the Docks to their full advantage. They really decked that place up. Video projections (more than just the DJ lineup) Pyrotechnics, confetti cannons, it all pretty much impressed me. And since im an 'intelligent lighting' bitch.. I was happy with the amount and set up of the lights.

    If you were to throw a party at the Docks.. I believe that last night had the perfect amount of people. My guess.. 2000-2500 people.

    Lets get on to the good stuff here...

    The Sets:

    St. Pete: Tracks good.. mixing blah.. heard it before.. nothin new.

    Another Astronaut & Jonny Quest: Well lets see since I have heard them every Wed at The Livingroom for the last hmmmm... 4 months. I must say they threw down a damn good set. It actually surprised me.. to a degree. The Livingroom crew wanted to buy them new tracks becuase we tended to hear them OVER and OVER and OVER again. But now they come up with a good set? shesh.. thanx guyz.

    Marty McFly aka Jelo Pudding Superstar
    &
    Madam Lynx aka Queen Diva of the tables

    YES! You all actually missed the Jelo pudding.. who cares about the set.. it was sweet.. but when ya got a wrestling match in Jelo pudding.. I mean.. common.. priorities here.

    This what you MUST read..

    DJ TIESTO:

    My dear fucking lord allmighty hollyshit I have never been so amazed in my entire fucking life.
    He is a trance god. A hollyman of the tables. Heard enough ranting? Okay.. lets get technical. The tracks selection was beyond incredible. Go figure that he produced basicly all of them himself. When you heard him spin you not only saw a brillant DJ, but a amazingly talented producer as well. The anthems were well spread out over the 3.5 hours. Didnt give the crowd to much time to catch their breath before going insane again. This is when you know you have talent... 3 turntables.. for trance.. ever see it before? No? Well its very hard to achieve, and he worked them all brillantly. Beat matching was PERFECT. Every track.. all three hours.. I didnt hear a beat go unmatched once. Mixing I would say was his weakest point here. Slowly mixing track A to B.. crossfader.. 1/4.. then BAM.. he punches it up to just past 3/4 will what I am guessing almost full base. Hearing the track being that pronouced was kinda distastefull in my opinion. However once he got into the track, deargoddamn! I never thought half of the tracks that were spun could ever sound that good. Brillant timing on tremble/bass cuts and buildups. It all worked so perfectly. Incase you havent realized allready he spun for 3.5 hours. This guy just fucked me up on the dancefloor. Very stong beginning to the set.. died off a tad in terms of tracks nearing the 2.5 hours mark, but ended with enough pizzaz to make you want to see him again tonight. I dont know what more to say about this set. It was one of the best trance sets I have EVER heard in over three years of partying.

    Party ended early at 6:30. But it ended with Tiesto. Mark Scaife.. no matter how good.. just wouldnt have made it a memorable end.

    Now I know there are gonna be people bitching about the crowd that was there. Seemed a little bit more like a Sat at Tonic than a party. Butnevertheless.. gino or raver, tall or short, candykid or junglist, the entire place went nutz for Tiesto's set. It was refreshing seeing people brought together by the music.

    Did I mention Tiesto is a god? Im sorry.. i still cant get over it.

    Give awayz all night.. CD's.. glowsticks and necklaces(woohoo).. but nevertheless.. still a great idea.

    Now for the ugly...

    The two dacning beauties were mmm mmm good. They stayed to the side.. did their GO-GO thing. But Mr. Musclehead *puke* sorry.. line has to be drawn somewhere. No judgement on him.. just get the hell out of way when a god is spinning. I want to see talent on the tables.. not nipply pecks.

    Shamless selfpromotion on the Mic.. dear god.. we know Ravestar brought in Tiesto.. dont need to remind us 20million times about it.

    2 OD's.. no deaths.

    Didnt catch the Stickmen spin.. cant be everywhere at once.

    Overall it was a fucking wicked party. 3.5 hours of Tiesto made my night.. take away him and you would of had nothing.

    PaRtYKiD's rating 7.5/10

    Well I have to correct Corey on a couple of small things....I only listened to Tiesto until 4:20 and I heard him screw upi 3 mixes noticably, I will agree that he fixed them very quickly, but nonetheless NOT perfect!

    Attendance was more like 11-1200 people, not 2000+......

    The closing of both the other rooms was kinda crappy, we lost all the cool air....

    Decorations were kinda shoddy with the icicle room being decked out in strands of gimp and a few chili looking icicles.....

    I think that although the Ravestar crew had some good ideas and a pretty hot shit dj this party wasn't exactly the way they invisioned it.....

    Did I mention about the kid who was busted for dealing inside? He made a break for the front door at around 2:30 where he was caught by the police outside the door...upon arresting him they searched him only to find a GUN AND A KNIFE that he had with him INSIDE THE PARTY!!!!!

    OK LIKE WHAT THE F*CK IS WITH THAT? WITH 4 PEOPLE SHOT AT SPINCAT ON FRIDAY AND ANOTHER PERSON SHOT LAST NIGHT SHOULD SECURITY NOT BE A LITTLE BIT MORE STRINGENT!!! ESPECIALLY THE HIGH PROFILE TEAM AT THEIR HOME BASE OF ALL PLACES!!!! [​IMG]

    Kinda puts things in a different light doesn't it?????????????????

    I never said his mixes were perfect. His mixing is his weakest talent. I said his beatmatching was perfect.
    And if anyone wants to start to try to say that mixing is JUST beatmatching... please go right ahead.

    I saw one security guard with the guy before he made a dash for it. Security had just found a knife on him. The guard was inspecting the blade as if it were a waterbotle. He didnt call for anyone.. nor did it look like the guard was in any urgency to do anything. Not until the guy ran newayz.. then all shit broke loose. Ride'em cowboy! HOYA! Security dashing around like chickens with their heads cut off.

    Yes its kinda scary that someone in that party had a gun.

    Im not going to comment on that anymore.. because who knows the guyz mental state. Anyone with a gun is a dangerous person.

    damn and I thought they were stringent with searches. That must have been a real slap in the face for High Profile.

    tiesto is a god!!! his set was amazing. the party had a very friendly vibe and the jello fight ruled. yeah, that bare cheasted guy dancing right by the dj was annoying, half of the party he was running and shoving everyone around. it was nice how they had that chill out space (with the tables and chairs),by the breaks room but it was demented of them to close it right after marty's set. some ppl can't stand on their feet for over 6 hours, they will need to sit down eventually, and the floor is not the best place to do that(unless you like having gum,cigarette butts and/or chunks of puke stuck to your ass). overall the party was AMAZING, the only weird thing was that i saw a bunch of men in their late fifties hitting on young girls.
    ...Oh and what's up with all those strippers? [​IMG]

    thanx Natalie..

    I try to make the reviews as accurate as possible. I sometimes step on peoples feet in the process. But I want to get out reviews that are the truth, not politically correct.

    Hey.. maybe one day a Superstar editor *cough*alex*cough* will actually publish my reviews.

    hehehe

    Tiesto - shit man! It was epic. I say with no reservations that his set revitalized my love of raving.
