Brilliant? Yes he was! He started off (at 11:00) nice and smoothe, gradually building up to about the 11:45 mark, then keep a nice level until the NY's countdown. Started the next part of his set with BT's Dreaming (a mix I didn't recognize... can anyone help me on this one?)
Other than a couple obvious skips on one record (not really his fault), his mixing was pretty damn good (even when it wasn't 100% bang on, he corrected it VERY quickly) and that's pretty good when most of his mixes were over 2 minutes in length.
It was nice hearing a good selection of old and new tracks, reaching way back with "Annihilate" (which put smiles on many people's faces)
All in all, I can't wait to see/ hear Pappa again, this will not be my last time
Jay. (still really tired
Oh yeah, and respect to Evil P for following up Pappa nicely and showing his versatility... I've never heard him play a progressive set so well!
Shouts out to all at Breathe for a slamming NYE event! I had a wicked time, and so did all my friends that I convinced to come out. Anthony Pappa played an absolute stormer, and Evil P followed up with a killer set. Damn, I've seen him many times before, but his set on Sunday blew me away. Definitely a DJ to keep an eye on. The vibe was electric, unlike anything I've felt at System before. Special shout outs to the GU crew, and MikeTwisted and Rentboy for providing me with a steady flow of drinks. What a great start to 2001! Peace!
Had way too much fun this night!!! Anthony Pappa's set was amazing and the crowd was hype. We pulled up at 5 to midnight and security let us right in. thanks! The night was well wun. The only bad part of my New Years was trying to get a taxi home. We had to end up paying $40 for a $10 ride.... but it was FREEZING so it was absolutely worth it. Hope everyone had a good NYE.
An incredible night !
The crowd, vibe and especially the music
made it a New Years to remember.
Frank Williams was the opening DJ played a nice Tribal set setting the stage for Mr Pappa. Set times were Frank Williams 9:30 till 11, Anthony Pappa 11 till 2, Evil P from
2 till 5, Mark Scaife 5 till close. The tunes
were bang on all night if you were lucky enough to share this night with us you know what I'm talkin about.

This ten year turntable veteran is only ever seen at night. Frank has European gigs under his belt, and can usually be found ripping it up as our poundhouse resident with partner Kelly Lewis or numerous other parties/clubs in the Toronto area.
He also played in the back room alongside Kelly Lewis on New Years. You can catch him on Sat Jan 20th at System we will be hosting the groove.ca website party in the back room alongside Blueprint.
I had a blast and without a doubt my best New years in quite some time... Pappa wa amazing: dropping Underworld's "Dark and Long" and Major North's "Annihilate" definately put the icing on the cake for me.
Respects to Mike and Jose, Coleridge, Creme, Nesta(and your mate Mike), Crouse, and Patio D (who I met at Sly later on)....oh yeah, and to Deep...good to see you again bro.
