The event was invite only(I think), and you found out who the "international" DJ was only when you got there. I had a pass but couldn't make it.

nesta, what other kinds of people get tickets for this?

while it may feel "special" to see a "big dj" in a "small club", it sounds like the a good portion of the crowd would be potentially irritating and unappreciative (it's sponsored by benson and hedges for christ's sakes!). wouldn't a "big dj" be annoyed that the "small" crowd didn't even know he/she was playing that night?

I think about two weeks ago they were giving away tickets outside of System with the normal System flyers.

The ticket looked like a folded flyer.

Satori got a couple tickets, they weren't folded though.
And of course we weren't ready for their strict dress code.

I cannot emphasize how shitty this is. I recieved a flyer last Thursday but i didn't go because i had no clue it was Seb Fontaine. Nesta - is this going to be a regular thing at Plastique?

You mean the mandatory freestyle uniform: white unbuttoned shirt w/ wife beater and black jeans?

Minister of freestyle makes me feel stupider just listening to it

I'm pretty sure they use different venues everytime.

It was pretty deserted. And from the reports I got from people who stayed for the whole night, Scaife had the best set of the night.

There wasn't a dress code enforced last night at Plastique. There was lots of glitz and glam types, but also saw several people in trainers & t-shirts. All in all, it was kind of fun - but then most things are when there is lots of free alcohol!

I'm not a big fan of Seb Fontaine. But I'll defend him by saying I wouldn't call Seb Fontaine a second or third tier trance DJ. He is after-all a resident of Cream ... he replaced Oakenfold when he left a few years ago. He also has the very successful Prototype series of mixed CDs released under the highly praised Boxed umbrella (Global Underground, NuBreed etc...). He’s a well-known name around the world, with a busy international itinerary and some substantial fees to accompany. Also Seb has been pretty much playing tech-edged house and prog for at least the past year.

Whether you find these accomplishments impressive or not is up to you. I'd agree that he's probably another average DJ that's benefited from some hard work, some lucky breaks and living in the UK. I would however say that his resume is enough to be considered a "tier 1" DJ

.... perhaps just barely.
