Deep Dish Go Fish

    I'm aware of the other thread, but uh, I don't know what you people were talking about. Something about not going and then a whole lot of poetry...

    So seeing as I'm from the 'Loo and the first one home from this event (living all of 10 minutes away from club helps), I will be the first one to review this lurverly event.

    My gf and I arrived at Rev around 10:45 or so to meet up with a pretty quick moving line. We stood in line for all of 5 minutes and then proceeded to waltz into the club FOR FREE because Rev lets you in free before 11 PM. This night was such a deal. No $5 beers, no molesting security and FREE before 11 PM to see the 10th ranked DJs in the world. What more could you ask for?!

    Got in the club and Isaac S and DJ Cher (I think that's her name) were going back to back on decks warming things up nicely. I was surprised to hear them actually playing prog instead of cheesy hard house/trance (Cher) or disco house (Isaac S). It was well done.

    Sharam stepped up to the decks at 12:30 and proceeded to THROW DOWN. My goodness! I'm not sure if he was Deep or Dish, but it didn't matter. Ali was left at home to tend to himself, so it was soley Sharam for the night.

    Sharam dropped some nice chunky house and then quickly moved into the prog. There was no messing about as he started throwing down CDR after CDR. I couldn't get over how many CDRs he played. I was expecting more vinyl, but with CDRs being so much cheaper to do up than an acetate, I can understand why things were the way they were. It was pure bliss. Amazing tunes that pumped in a dark and dirty way. I kept trying to trainspot tracks, but it was a useless effort because of most of the tracks being on CDR. Sharam was too caught up in the music to show them off anyway.

    We left at around 3:30 with a great big grin on our faces.

    Sharam is a class act. Not only did he schmooze with his fans before he played, but he smiled the whole way through the set and kept a constant rug-tearing hip-shake going on too. He signed autographs for anyone who requested without ANY attitude, took pictures and was overall VERY friendly to anyone who approached him. I was thoroughly impressed with his outlook on things. It's not often that DJs of Deep Dish's calibre are like this. He gladly signed my posters, my gf's GU Moscow CD, their album on Deconstruction and took a pic each with my gf and then one with me - all with smile on his face and friendly chit-chat to boot.

    I must say, I was thoroughly impressed with Sharam as a person and as a DJ. He puts many of the 'names' out there to shame. I for one, will go see Deep Dish for a fourth time!!

    PS - finally nice to meet up with all of the TBK massive in effect at the event. From top of my head, I met Madnezz, El Presidente High Steppa, JayIsBored, Liquid Fairy (who I know already), Olga (forget your Tribe name), Toby (Tribe name forgotten), Kix, Temper Tantrum, uh... and a whole bunch more. Forgive me as I'm terrible with names and memory! Haha.

    PPS - Can't wait until next Friday for Tilt at System! Wish me a happy b-day if you wish as I'm turning the grand old age of 26. Ugh.

    Honestly I loved the music but I was a liitle bored at times. I was in full party mode tonight and was hoping for soemthing a little harder. I still had a great time and danced my ass off for most of the night though.

    Met a whole whack of tribe people. Thanks to everyone who made this a great night.

    p.s. good times were had by all [​IMG]

    I had fun! My apologies if I seemed somewhat unsocial, i wasn't in a very talky mood, but it was -so- great to see so many happy shiny smiley Toronto people in my new hood. [​IMG]

    I must say, the proportion of K/W uglies to non-uglies out last night dropped dramatically from what it usually is on a Saturday night at Rev. There was hardly anyone to make fun of! I was so bored!

    The hometown djs were surprisingly good! Cheezy predictible house, but it got me moving to start the night out right.

    Deep Dish was ok. Not really my kind of music at all, but it started out good, got kinda lame, then picked it back up with some housey, slightly faster beats. I don't understand how so many of you love that slow-ish progressivey tempo... how do you dance to it??

    The times i went into the Purple Room were sweeeeet. If only i could have transferred the Myka into the main room. I tried dancing it up to his set, but some fucked up guy kept pushing into me and got me fed up so spent most of the night in the mainroom... a far cry from my usual escapades out there.

    Anyways, big thanks to Tim... it was sooo good seeing you out again hun. There need to be more people like you in the world. Allie, for providing us with an object of mockery for the night (haha jokes)... thanks for the treats baby, so good seeing you too. Duncan!!! WELCOME TO CANADA BABY!! That conversation was so nostalgic. I can't believe someone else understands my ancient past life with the christian punk/ska. Good lord. And of course Kyle, for putting up with me -all- day and not even grabbing my ass once. [​IMG]

    Everyone else, i won't attempt to name names for fear of leaving a billion people out...you make me smile. Each and every one of you. Except for that Mack-glo character. Throwing girls onto pool tables and the like... jesus.

    Though i would like to send shout outs to my fan club... "YOUR'RE THE -GREATEST- DANCER EVER!! NOW WE'RE GOING TO STAND HERE AND STARE AT YOUR TITS." That was one of the creepier moments in my life. I'd also like to thank the rest of you for standing around laughing at me instead of rescuing me.

    Did Cheerbear ever show?

    I was looking for her and didn't see her at all.

    -=Nub=- <== Didn't see Tina at all either

    LOL at Tina ^^

    I can say without hesitation that I had a great time, my only complaint being that Sharam didn't take the music onto an ephemeral level like I know he can.

    But after racing into Waterloo in nice time with RJ45 and our crew, got settled in with some drinks and drunks and made the rounds. Crappers, there were a lot of Tribe kids. We got into an area and claimed it as our own for the night.

    Very cool to see everyone. I met even more peeps, and I figured there must have been at least 30 of us there. I have awesome photos from the night....going to try to upload them somewhere.

    I liked the non-smoking deal. My energy seemed to be higher, meaning more dancing. Mind you, everyone was sneaking around the rule, and it sometimes felt like a high school dance, cept Deep Dish was there to give some credibility.

    The club was truckin' huge. Much better sound than I expected, and decent lighting. The go-go dancers wouldn't let me dance with them. [​IMG] Thanks for trying to help though Laura!

    Anyway, the after-party at Sam's was niiiiiice....with good friends, flowin' vino and some sweet chunes, expertly mixed by the one we call RJ halfninety.

    All in all, 'twas a very nice date with Mingster. [​IMG]

    Not going into names, cuz leaving someone out always sux, but it was sweet to meet so many of y'all and see the rest again.

    Indeed! Good times all around. Always fun to have a crew at the club. [​IMG] Met a lot of new folks last night, which was great. I'll take Josh's stance and not go into names because there were so many of you people there!

    Ingredients for a fun after party: Some nice wine, some great people, a few tunes, a fireman passed out on your floor, and a christmas tree. Glad you kids came by, it was a lot of fun. Y'all are welcome anytime, y'hear?

    did anyone else see the same set that i did? ok, i'll admit that i didn't see much of deep dish's set. BUT that was because it seemed to suck some serious ass. nothing special. i was bored everytime i went in there.

    purple room however...... mattlok was so good!!! although, after a talk with finch, his set had a few flaws in it. but we quickly forgave him for it. as finch pointed out, he would start talking to people he knew while he was in the middle of a mix. i imagine it's hard to keep the mix going while holding a conversation. but nothing went that far off. he kept it together nicely. plus he tries harder mixes than most other djs. he's willing to roll the dice in the hopes of getting that great mix.

    after mattlok was all done, myka stepped up. first hour or so was, shall we say, boring. i was pretty disappointed. after that first hour though, he quickly shaped up and started throwing down some wicked tunes.

    best part of all was that i finally got my shit together and got motivation to dance. it's not often that you'll see me do anything beyond a head nod, but i totally on a roll by the end. i'm still lazy as hell though... i try to dance without really moving my feet. what can i say, i'm really lazy.

    so the night was great fun. deep dish sucked, but it doesn't matter, the purple room is where it's at anyways.... the purple room is always good. maybe the TO crowd will make a few more trips up there in the future. the rev is a nice change from toronto sometimes.

    on another note:

    1) where the hell was sunny? i had no idea he was there... why did no one tell me?

    2) and madnezz, when should we have that date at the strip club?

    Man this was a super fun night...
    every other person there was TBK fer real!!

    big ups to all the peeps i met and met up with...
    solacevip, labrat, jungle girl---madnezz, par-t , vinder, duncan, just too many of you fer real...

    for those who didn't get there early, man did you miss the insanity in the purple room!
    Mattlok made me lose my mind with his selection....

    and after him....myka, well let's just say after he played 'i wear my sunglasses at night' i left the room and didn't return...
    the beat is sweet but the vocalist bit.

    As for the one half of DD that showed, he played every flavor imaginable....
    decent set....the housey-techno slot was mighty good tho!

    peace to all who made it out...
    i missed my Joker...
    big ups to Finch and Smiley Jo and Marc!!
    was one of the goodest times , no doubt!!

    now thoughts of bittersweet!!


    Nothing like a free event..and cheap coat check..and cheap drinks..and a nice venue where noone molests you...it was a welcome change [​IMG]
    i dunno who was on before Deep Dish, but i kinda maybe sorta liked them...nuts to house..but the tracks they were playing were all cheesy and dance worthy...but i was singing other songs in my head..so its ok [​IMG]
    i was, for the most part bored with Deep Dishes set, and had to amuse myself in other ways..like crusading against glowsticks, and jazz like that.
    what really made this nite for me was being able to have a solid group of friends and seeing a familiar face everywhere i went. [​IMG]


    Sunny was there and i was bashing house by myself???heeeey. [​IMG]

    sure, i'm a techno head, but i fully appreciate the sounds of sweet soulfull house, and i really dig some dirty, tribal, stomping house on occasion.

    myka + mattlock = pretty thumpin house + good vibes...the purple room was the place to be on this night.

    deep dish (sharam) = poo, POO, POOOOOOOOO ... i really couldn't find a single groove in his track selection - there was the one glimmer of hope when he threw done a remix of derrick may's classic detroit cut "strings of life", but it ended up turning sour within 30 seconds....then there was the "mixing" [​IMG]


    great to see a boatload of TBK out in full affect though - tribers always know to have a good time

    I can't believe I captured this expression on James. Pure fucking solid platinum:


    It's begging for a photoshop. Beaker-baby type of thing, as Toby recommended.

    ok, i'll come out against the all the prog bashers out there and say deep dicking was great! mix of the new and old, had my ass moving all night! moved from a head bob to an ass wiggle, to a hop to all out madness! so much fun!

    i honestly really liked that place, it was nicely done up, and the crowd wasn't too bad either. loved that girl who was standing in front of me and mingster, "what's with all these RAVERS!!!" ahahahahaha! gold!

    great to see SO MANY people out, and it was great to meet RJ45 (three times i broke your heart, i apologize), metal morphosis, loopdokter, lostintheehole, dazed and anyone else i met that i can't remember, i apologize...

    biggest cheers goes to the road trip crew though! jay(rev), susan, keith on the way up, red bull hyper massive woooooooo! and laura, tommy, kenny and susan on the way back!

    and to everyone who was there, thanks so much for making the night that much better [​IMG]

    Dude, did you read my "review" of Deep Dish?
    My fever got worse by the time 6 pm rolled around so I didn't go. Would've liked to have seen Toby, Tearer (duh), YOU SHAWN [​IMG] , et al...

    Boo-urns, eh?

    Looks like you guys had so much fun. Meanwhile, I cold-sweated all night, wrapped in a down blanket. Changed clothes 5 times because I sweated so much.

    Then I woke up and went to work. And now I have a pounding headache at work.

    I HATE winter.
    Back to the reviews...
