    I was just scanning through the old gaetek coming to element thread and realized that there was no price stated. There hasnt been much talk about this event, and havent seen any advertisements, is it still a go?
    if so, how much and is anyone coming from the board?

    Yeah, I will be there for sure. I'm really in the mood for some HARD techno. I've been listening to a lot of elektro lately, and kinda been ignoring the tek-lover in me. So, I owe it to "techno" to hear his set.

    Besides, Element is a nice place, and I'm sure people will have tons of fun there. Plus...my ears wont hurt for two days after (like his set at Turbo.....ouch!!!).

    Hope to see you techno lovers out there.

    i'm pretty sure he's playing a tech house set though, under gaetano parisio..
    so i wouldnt be expecting any hard stuff, but it would be nice :)
    however his last visit he pounded it out, so i'm pretty excited to see him work the more groovey, funky maybe even minimal stuff..

    Why not?


    "Fuck Genres", remember? :p

    I know "Fuck Genres"....but I never liked house to begin with, and I still don't. Now I'm kinda iffffffffy about going. Well, after a few Vodka+Red Bulls, I'm sure even cheesy-mousy-housy will sound OK.

    He's playing a tech-house set because it's a promo tour for his Southsoul label which -- in my understanding-- is the imprint he releases his housier material on.

    Southsoul = techno and disco house.

    There has yet to be any house on this label. With the exception of that very Daft Punk-esque track that came out on Southsoul 5.

    I wouldn't worry too much about not hearing techno that night. That is if you really dig Italian club techno....:eek:

    I'd go see him this time, but he almost destroyed my hearing with his high end eq'ing last time I saw him. I won't take that chance again. I could barely hear out of my left ear for almost two weeks after the show.

    i'm pretty sure that had more to do with turbo's sound system then gaetano's djing techniques. just a thought...

    No it wasn't Turbo, I didn't see him there.. It was Platinum in Kitchener and mind you the sound system sucked, but he had the high's cranked the entire night. When I used to play there I would keep the mids and highs a little below zero db, just because the highs were always cranked on the amps.

    He was seriously destroying people's hearing. I know of a few other people who danced in the middle of the floor and had their ears ringing for days.

    I would assume the Turbo treatment to be equally deafening.

    I still get shivers when I think of the time I saw Gaetek and Carola at Tonic on 4. It was probably one of the best dj performances I've ever seen. Two of my favorite dj's indeed.

    So, this Thursday, Element will be host to the mighty Gaetek and his Southsoul Tour. I'm not working on Thursday, and I have a feeling it's gonna be packed. All I need now is someone to go with.....

    Don't worry, you'll enjoy...besides tech-house is an overrated, overused term (I hated it the first time I heard the term 4 yrs ago) to attract an older crowd. It's funky techno...that's all.

    His "Techhouse" is more on the techno side anyways. It has a darker driving beat which makes it more easier to dance to then your average techno.

    also yes derek techhouse is an over rated term just like house or techno. Where do you draw the line at what is what anymore these days.

    Funky techno I can handle! :p
  20. BigBadBaldy

    BigBadBaldy TRIBE Member

    Yeah, I guess I sometimes forget that a lot of people don't dig house. For me, there's just so many different sounds to house and techno that I can always find something of either spectrum that I enjoy. I don't like cheesy house, but I don't like shitty techno, either.

    ..but it's the differences that makes the big bad beautiful world go round. VIVE LA DIFFERENCE!!! JE T'AIME, TOUT LE MONDE!!!

    nobleton, eh! nice area.

    e-mail has been sent.

    where's vench?
  24. ElektroTekBabe

    ElektroTekBabe TRIBE Member

    Yeah, I totally agree with you...I don't like shitty techno either. In fact, I have been getting really deep into elektro and breaks. The last techno event I've been to was in Germany (3 weeks ago)with Adam Beyer, Gayle San, Anthony Rother and Sven Vath....and to tell you the truth, I only really enjoyed Anthony's and Sven's set. Adam Beyer was too hard an repetitive (boom boom boom) Gayle San was not too impressive either. Sven has been getting into the funkier techno....what I now call 4/4 elektro a.k.a ElektroTek ;). So I guess you're right, there is cheese in all genres of music. I hope Gaetano will spin a funky set. If not, I always have Miss Allien to look forward to! :D

    I'm still here. Although I just remembered that I made plans for Thursday night and completely forgot about them and I highly doubt that the person I'll be with will want to go see Gaetano.


    I guess I'll mix a cd of all Gaetek shit today so I can get my fix.

    north of 16th............
