    I spent 40$ for a cab to get to the subway and get really drunk by myself, cos I was so set on going to Turbo and it was so not worth it... argh argh.. I don't remember any music so I can't write a review, but overall the night was not so good [​IMG] I think I should sleep next time.

    The Dream RUNS things. Took him about 45 minutes to get going but once he did ... Destruction, Terror, and Mayhem on the massive. All out assault of :chugging: basslines s.l.o.w.l.y creeping up on you ... you knew they were comin'. Big party tracks!!!

    Fleaflo has been introduced to the zone and I think he likes it.

    I had a really good time, both downstairs and upstairs. It was fun finally playing a good timeslot at Turbo, and I enjoyed what Barry Weaver was playing upstairs... it was pretty damn hard from what I heard!

    It was awesome seeing everyone again, I can't wait to be back in Toronto for good this summer. [​IMG]

    who's barry weaver? heheheh.

    it was nice meeting some tbk last night and it was equally as nice to see faces i'm already familiar with. meghin...you looked like you were having a wonderful time ...congrats on buying the decks with mike [​IMG] doublecross..you spun a wicked set...it was nice to see you get versatile with something a little harder.

    sketchy crowd at turbo considering it really wasn't even close to being at capacity. ok night eitherway....

    hmmm, another turbo friday....

    i was suprised to see how empty it was, but that made for an enjoyable night...got in just in time to check out doublecross' set..excellent i must say...good to see some fresh talent droppin in downstairs...then lush, my personal favorite...i'm always catching some wreck when he plays...but 4 mc's passing the mic around are 4 mc's to many...specially when one of them is MCP....i call him mcPoo....

    it was nice to meet you tella, thanks for the company downstairs...

    i even ventured upstairs for a tad to see what the big deal was in regards to the 'harry beaver' guy, or whatever his name was...and as a non-upstairs music fan, i'll say i was pretty impressed...i was even caught by my friends cutting a rug for a little bit...

    SUKE sounds like you had a good time, sounds like everyone had a good time. I really wish that I wasn't still away at school, but it's almost over. No one has mentioned what S&H did, but I guess that's a dumb question considering they always rip it up, and why would tonight be any different be it a birthday party. Once again N-MAC is jealous, but summer is just around the corner
    and I can't WAIT !!!!!!!

    wants to hit San Diego for three weeks this summer ------------------> Suke.

    not much of a crowd though.....
    where was everyone?

    There actually was a pretty good crowd to start out with, but as a good friend put it best "Weaver outplayed the crowd, strickly for the heads." Searing.

    Suke. I'm working on that track for you. I'll get back to you round New Year's.

    Hey all..

    Just newly birthed posting priviledges.. WooHoo. Been lurking here for some time. Guess I'll post in the "Howdy My Name Is" thread before I go.

    I had a great time at Turbo on Friday. Got there at about 12 by myself and proceeded to drink too fast as I usually do by myself (a nervous thing? Possibly. Being alone in a club can do funny things to your head.), liking the tunes, but not fully moved by them. Really housey, clubby tracks for the first while. Around 1:30 or so, you could feel the turn beginning to happen. Things started to get a little heavier, a little rougher.

    By 5am I had to force myself to go home. Had to work a brunch shift at 8, so a little time to shower and chug some nasty coffee was fully required.

    The crowd was thin, but seemed genuinely into it for the most part. Hell, I love it when the crowd thins out anyway. It's good to see the hardcore people who you can tell feel the music going at it! Big props to the couple who I danced beside for the last couple of hours.. small redhead/brunette, taller guy in a baseball cap who asked me how I liked the set? Just good to see peeps really enjoying the tunes.

    Would definitely add Weaver to my "will see at another time" list.


    Good to finally be able to post. Respect to the Tribe Massive!

    Fun night. Was kind of hurting from the previous night and was planning on taking it easy - wrong! Weaver's set just got better and better as the night went on.
    When he dropped Electric Avenue, I lost it too, love Eddie Grant's original and the remix just rocks. I was off to my own little alternate reality - full on dancing machine, smile on my face, eyes closed, nothing but the music filling my head [​IMG]

    Stayed downstairs for Doublecross's set, was great, had me going right up front. Good to see you again after such a long time.

    I had fun but ran out of gas by 4:30, liked the crowd size - room to move and dance.

    Stretch had it going pretty nicely. It was a pretty bangin set. Weaver started off slowly, building it up, up ,up... then the other foot dropped and ladies and gentlemen, We had lift off!

    Beautiful set, hard, chunky, zoney(copyright by Suke), I only left at 5:30 cause I had to.
    Crowd was thin, which made for some sweet dancing space and lots of sweet breathable air. Well until they tried to choke us out of there with that damn smoke machine! [​IMG]

    Met Tella and talked with her a bit [​IMG], saw Smiley Jo for a wee bit before she disappeared into the crowd never to be seen again. Met Me, which was a hoot.

    and everyone else that was there and then just disappeared as the nite went on.

    Very Sweet.

    What an interesting night. It was worth having to venture into Turbo on my own *gasp* for this one.
    There were plenty of friendly faces upon my arrival, although not outside. It was close to two I guess, and there was zero people in line. I half guess that might be the case because of the chaos the night before, but when I walked upstairs I realized how few people were actually there.
    I was pretty happy to hear that Barry Weaver hadn’t started yet, my timing on that was perfect! The crowd was pretty chill, I’m guessing most of them partied the night before as well! Such as Libradragon, who made sure I knew she had only had three hours sleep, and that I was to give my “hardcore” membership back. Not on your life baby!
    I ended up staying mostly in the front tonight, which I hadn’t done in awhile. It certainly does give you a different view of things.
    Barry Weaver was phenomenal. His tracks were hard and the tempo was crazy. most of the time all I could do was bounce. People were lovin’ him though, screaming and yelling, hands in the air, and all smiles! At times I would just turn to people during some insane build and go “What?”, and they would just shake their heads in awe right along with me.
    Nice to meet some more people from the board, Gizmo and Tella, and thanks to Flea, for his fabulous introduction skills. There were some familiar faces too, Chrome, Shadrach, Par-T, Eclipze, (guy you have got to tell me what the hell is so funny) and Kate and Suke were doing a fabulous job of tearing up the dance floor! Suke attempted to share some of his musical knowledge with me, (and he knows I always appreciate it) but all I heard was “Blah blah…track I was telling you about…blah bli blah…wait for it…bla blah blah…that’s the zone.” (You will have to expand a bit for me.)
    Barry was still tossing down some slammin’ tracks as we left, and he definitely lived up to his reputation despite a few technical difficulties (like his needle breaking). Too bad more people didn't show up for it.

    Seriously? You must be crazy! I came over and said "hi!" to you and Suke. You gave me a big hug, as usual. Stated I was still at my 'mingling stage' and would see you later.
