Another wikked Saturday night inside Charlies.
Got there a little past 1am, missed out on Dan's opening set but I'm sure the B-Day boy was laying it down proper. Atomic Hoooligan was doing what he does best, cuttin', scratchin' & mixing tune after tune. Suprised me with some HipHop & Dancehall with a nice transition back into breaks. A very nice crowd in attendance, a lot of familiar faces. Can't forget FunknStyle who finished things off nicelly. Amazing night alltogether. Once again, a big happybirthday to Mr.Dmonic. A fun night it was!

Great night !

Atomic Hooligan fuckin rocked it with a wikked set. Anyone know the scoop on the "Punks" remix he dropped? I almost shat myself :eek: The hip hop and Sean Paul was pricless, I love a DJ that doesnt conform to anything. Definatly one of the highlights was seeing RobbG bust it up on the floor, never met you Robb but i love your vibe on the decks and on the floor.
Happy Birthday Dan ! you dont really knoew me but best whishes regardless.

Atomic Hooligan was the best part of the night. His scratching and use of Sean Paul (;)) were a definite bonus! The random 3am dancehall session was also really fun too.

Hope you had a great birthday Dan :)

That was fucking insane! Focus & Atomic Hooligan delivered us a huge bag of treats. All the Djs showed me how many directions breaks can go and they did it with such skill. Dmonic Happy birthday and it was fun watching you kill those tables. funk&style was a mad man and closed off nicely. The best part of all was seeing Atomic Hooligan tear up the main room in the Guv. Thanks to Mark Oliver for letting Atomic Hooligan tear it up in the main room. It was good to see everybody love the breaks and eating it up. Atomic Hooligan ended off with a wicked track in the guv IMO (Rennie Pilgrem-Emit/Collect) you should of heard it on that system it was beautiful!:D

Fuck that was so wicked. Granted I got there late at like 1am, but good god was the hoolgan tearing shit up! I've never really danced to breaks but I gave it the ol' college try last night. A special birthday to danny, who, after trying to leave dragged my ass back for more of funk n style who I really enjoyed because Im a big fan of any DJ who shows energy whilst playing music...and it looked like the dood was having a good time and it showed in the music..good on ya.

Michie (once again I do beleive that was her name) good to meet you as well and I hope the heineken was delish

and of course a big werdup to kick, turtle, j-mat, angus (thanks for cab share!) and moez for accompanying me.

I went to my Auntie's Bday party earlier on in the evening, came home for a bit, fell asleep and almost didn't wake up. Finally got up at 10:30pm, had a shower and arrived at Charlie's at 1am. I am soooooo happy I made it out. What a wicked night!! The place was packed. Everyone was out for Dan's Bday!! Atomic Hooligan was incredible...WoW!!! I cannot wait til he comes back again! Dan was pure jokes last night. He looked like he was having way too much fun!! Dan, I'm so glad you were having such an amazing Bday.:) The energy in the place was off the hook-everyone was getting all rowdy! When Atomic Hooligan was getting off I was thinking, that's a tough act to follow. Then FunkNstyle comes on and what can I say...Holy shit Jonny...nice set!! I seem to have always missed you play(well only catching little bits of ur sets), finally last night I get to see you...and you're soooooo good!:) Oh and nice to finally meet ur girl Julie.

Very nice to meet lil'Timmy!:)

Thanks to those that made it out last night! It was a great party! I had so much fun.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes (and drinks).

Atomic Hooligan tore the roof off, and for those of you that were hardcore enough to stick around after Charlie's closed got quite a treat in the Guvernment main room.

The Hooligan got to play a quick 1/2 hour set on the world famous Phazon Soundsytem to close to 3000 people! They loved the breaks!

Yes wicked night indeed!!!

Started some pre-drinking session with Torso, MOD ONE, man_slut, and Shawna before heading out...

Got to Charlies at around 11:30pm to hear D-Monic playing some hype tunes, nice opening set by the way I really enjoyed it...

Next up was Atomic Hooligan... wasn't sure what to expect since it was my first time hearing him... all I have to say is WOW! this guy does it all! from scratching to flawless mixing... and he had a ton of energy, which could been seen in the way he had the crowd jumpin... My favorite part of his set has to be when he layed down the Dead Prez "hip-hop" track, I f'in lost it!

All in all I had a good night and you can be sure I'll be there next week! Respects to the Focus crew!

peace!

YES!!!! The dead Prez track is so dirty and I loved it when that track was played. It got everybody going crazy when that track was on.

D-monic kicked ass! Atomic Hooligan is pure energy. It was sweet to hear some breaks in the main room later on at around 5 am. It was nice to see the gino's feeding of the music. I had a beutiful night. Thanks a million!

Terry T rawks out hard with that dmc scratching (and when I say dmc scratching I`m mean dmc scratching, not us in the electronic music scene that "claim" we can dmc scratch:D ). Sik juggles and the hip hop was dope for the first 5 mins but there is no room for Sean Paul anywhere IMO. Wikkid night and a big Happy B-Day goes out to my girl Christine and my bud Dan!!


cheers

What a night it was. Dan started the night off proper with the perfect warm up set. Then the real drinking began. Fuck were there a lot of shots. Then Mr. Hooligan took control of the decks and boy did he ever. From scratching to the dropping of hip hop. The set got everyone bopping. One of the funnest party yet at Charlies.

Breaks have changed a lot within the last couple of years. What was known as breaks (old school) is not what most break djs play these days. Mark Oliver has incorporated much breaks into his sets. You were probably dancing to it many nights and didn't realize you were busting it out to breaks.

On the night that Oakenfold played, Liquid Todd (who opened for him) played breaks for over 80% of his 3 hour set. For the last hour it was almost all breaks and the Guv was rammed and loving it.

Breaks is the next big thing!

This is no lie...If you give breaks a chance, which a lot of people do without even knowing it you will actually love the creativeness and the energy that it brings to the floor. I fell in love with this music because of the flexibility it has. Progy Djs like Sasha and ZABEILA are also know fitting a lot of breaks into their set.

My usual problem with breaks is not so much the style (ie., oldskool, funky, techy, trancey etc.) but the actual break-beats themselves. I generally need a constant 4/4 kick drum and rolling bassline to be happy on the dancefloor. As a result, I have trouble getting into breaks on most occasions.

So why am I posting in a review thread for a breaks DJs? Well, I do enjoy the occasional interlude (including from Mark Oliver) if it fits properly. I thought Atomic Hooligan did very well in the Guvernment main room.

I bet you would love Progy type of breaks it has best of both worlds. The best part about clubs in Toronto it does give you that chance to check out many different types of music in one night, which I find amazing...it shows you how open minded the Toronto scene is.
