    HELLLOOOOO??!!!!!! This was incredible.
    Hard fast crazy beats rolling out one after another. She is one crazy lady. This was one of the best hard drum n bass sets I have seen in a very long time. The tracks were wicked, even the MC'ing was up to par. I was dancing like crazy, I couldn't even dance because my legs were getting tired but I couldn't stop. I was lifted up and not wanting to come down, all from the music.

    Dj Freedom has definately lived up to her expectations of being a really talented DJ. The mixing, the tunes, it was all there to keep the crowd going nuts. I haven't seen this much energy in a DJ at Turbo, again, in a while.

    Also, a huge big up to Everfresh for playing "i got the sweetest hangover, i don't wanna get over..." that track is killer, the remix was a bit weird but just hearing those few lines had True Blue Jungle GI and I going nuts.

    Marcus also spun a crazy set that didn't even give me a chance to warm up cos as soon as I walked in "love is not a game" was up! How hype is that. My fave track at the moment.

    Turbo is a crazy crowd with some hype tunes. [​IMG]

    Were we in the same club?

    My travels through the jungle room:

    I arrive and head downstairs to find the 'king of the cut' Sniper driving the place wild! People screaming, hands in the air... madness!

    I go upstairs to get my drink on, I come back downstairs to witness a mass exodus of the room. Freedom's on the decks. I walk back in to see half the ammount of people then I get 'assaulted' by buckled mix after buckled mix. I had to leave too...

    Now, I've heard her play well... 3-4 years ago. the last couple of time I've heard her have been horrible. This time out was no exception

    i have to agree with d-monic. i had a great time downstairs when Sniper was on, but later when i traveled downstairs, i thought it was lacking. a friend of mine described a scenario from friday. he was dancing right up front, freedom starts laying down a wicked track, my friend is getting into it but then she fucked a mix up so huge that my friend had to stop dancing instantly with a look of confusion on his face. apparently it was so bad he had to leave.

    i got to check out a bit of freedom on saturday nite at The Beach Party. (don't ask, i was working the TRIP booth) wandered downstairs to check her out, thinking maybe friday was an off nite. but no, it was crappy again. lacking intensity and energy, definately and i was treated to some ugly mixes again.

    maybe just an off weekend for this lady?

    no, not an 'off evening', more like a lifetime off, or a profession off. 3 words of advice: give it up

    yes i saw her and the people.. it was so funny cos they cannot dance to it at all, our producer wanted to mostly shoot the dj and not the dancers..

    and for the people saying Freedom sucked.. I have no idea but I was loving her set, and going to Turbo pretty much every Friday, this was one of my fave sets in a while.

    I had a great night, enjoyed the music emencely, danced till my legs hurt and drank way too much.

    However, I don't have much of a good ear for the technical side of DJ'ing, and the people I was with (and friends who have heard her before) commented that her skills were lacking.
    I had tones of fun though! Might have been the great company I was with too!

    I'm with you on this one Meghin - I saw you out there during freedom, and you were busting it up pretty fiercely, and so was I...we didnt have the chance to nitpick her set coz we were was too busy bustin out!...wether or not she was technically perfect, she was dropping wicked tracks, had the room going nuts, and in the end thats what really matters...

    i forgot to mention this little exchange i had with someone that night during freedom's set.

    friendly dancing boy: excuse me, do you know what kind of music this is?

    me: um, it's jungle.

    friendly dancing boy: oh, ok, thanks. (continues dancing)

    strange eh?
