Another solid Wednesday night.

Place filled up nice and early and J Tyce got the warm up going proper... That's the earliest I've ever seen the dance floor fill up on a Wednesday so far. BLC rocked the house and finished his set off with his new remix of Kylie Minogue - Slow... very slamming... Chu, if you're reading this... I want a copy of that!

Had a blast finishing off the night again... thanks again to everyone who came out... we hope you enjoyed "customer appreciation night" and hopefully we can do it again soon! See you in '04.

Serge.

I think Element should clean the barf smell that comes from some guy barfing on the wall 2 weeks ago. It's been 2 weeks and it still smells like barf.

Eh Colin... hook a brother up with that kylie remix you did... I still have that classic record "pure silver" waiting for you as well.
for the one time low price of only $19.99 no tax! lol.
You can come by and take whatever else you want too. I'll just archive mp3's of whatever you take. I'd rather sell you my prized breaks records that dont get played than see them collect dust on the shelf.

You're representing well man... you keep me playing breaks in my sets...

It's nice knowing you'll never end up like a John-E. lol...
karma baby, karma.

Doesn't he play a mix of breaks and garage?

I was the ONLY one dancing to his set in the backroom of Tonic on a FTWK Wednesday. And not only was I the only one dancing, I was the only one in the room. Haha.

I guess he's sorta gone into obscurity? Bring him back!! He played lots of tunes that I loved.
Not as prolific as before, I guess.

I suppose It's only fair to offer up some sort of explanation for my comment.

All I care to say is he wrote his own demise. You can only step on others to make your way to the top so many times before you fall.

Do you think he chose to stop djing so he could make time for his blossoming career in construction as a general labourer ??

I think not. Actually I know not.

I was fortunate enough to have close, reliable friends like Kenny Glasgow, Matt C, and even Sandy Rivera to give me guidance in one way or another. So, I can only pass on the same advice they gave me.

I would first off like to thank the Activate guys for a great time last wednesday. The drinks were a flowin and the crowd was lovely to play for. To anyone out there who has not been out I highly recommend this night. Happy Holidays to Ev, Cyrus, Matt, Serge and Jon (plus rest of crew).

Some may have issues with John E, I would say that without John E I would not be spinning and have the drive to play. He has always shown love for the breaks scene as the music is close to his heart. I would even venture to say closer to his heart than house. He is someone that I miss not having in the scene as much these days and would like to see him back in some capacity in the future. He's always been a solid person in my relationship with him and has gone the extra on numerous occaissions to help people out.

Ludikris may have issues with him but we will definately disagree on this issue.

Respect Colin,

You are definitely not expected to agree with my opinion of John. Your opinions are based on your experiences and I respect that.

The truth of the matter is you (and others around John like Robb and Dan) continue to succeed where John failed. You conduct yourself personally and professionally in a manner that commands and deserves respect.
It's probably a good thing that you never really saw that side of John. I witnessed first hand how his improper behaviour precipitated physical and financial confrontations ultimately ending his dj career.

The unfortunate and now embarrasing irony of this thread for me is that although I resent how John treated up and coming dj's like me and others he dealt with, John was my inspiration back in 92' to start djing. I was almost completely turned off by the music in the rave scene until I experienced a John E set in the Cinespace Warehouses of Eastern Ave. He is the reason I started djing and it sucks that instead of being an icon in the Toronto rave/breaks/dj scene, for many, he became an eye sore.

I would never admit something like that if it weren't true.

When people come up to you, Dan and Robb and say "Hey man, that was a dope track.. can you tell me the name of it?"

Whether it's a Rare piece or Hot off the press, how do you respond.... ?

I know you guys love to share with anyone and everyone who's interested. It's a wicked buzz to turn to that person who is jonesing to know about a sick record that only you and maybe one other guy has just so you can both oogle at it. That's what being a dj is about.. sharing the music and passing it on so others will hear it.

Unlike John, his friends at that time like Dj's MinuteMaid, Danny Henry, Chameleon, Mark Oliver, Czech and Little T were always inspirational and embraced new talent. They enjoyed sharing their music.
Hell, I was guilty of being a hardcore trainspotter in those days which was somewhat frowned upon. While living with Minutemaid, I trainspotted his records to the point of listening to them one by one and writing down the names of tracks so I could try and find them at the record store. I wanted them that bad!!

That may not sound like a big deal now, but it was back then. Either way, when all was said and done, Minutemaid was pissed off initially but forgave me. He knew that I was just green with envy and ignorant of that old dj code of conduct.
I'm glad that the whole hiding or covering uprecords nonsense is pretty much non existant.

Besides, Records don't make a dj great.

That was probably more beans than I initially wanted to spill but hopefully a good point has been made and people will benefit from it someway.

Peace,

Ludikris.
