    If you guys didn't know, according to an interview on torontojungle.com with the Empire crew, one of their plans with the Droppin' Beats and One Sound parties is to demonstrate the sounds of jungle/drum n bass in a "concert-style" setting, thus the overkilled multi-use of the Opera House.

    So these Empire *parties* are really just psuedo-concerts with psuedo-celebrities.

    The recent One Sound party, I believe that the Empire crew achieved their goal of putting on a concert. The egocentric stage antics of MC P were very annoying, yet once again diverting the attention away from the Dj... does this guy ever shut up?

    The crowd that was there... hmmmmm... where did all the attractive jungle lovin' ladies go to? and where did all the dancers depart to? The place was filled with washed-out rocker, ecko-wearing, suburban trash... were they dancing? maybe... but it looked more like moshing.

    I don't know about all of yous... but, i want the hype dancers back, and i want a diversity of drum n bass styles... PLEASE!

    Congratulations Empire for turning parties into boring concerts with ugly people.

    Despite a good set by the Vinyl Syndicate crew, the party was boring and unpleasant.

    another thing, stop fukkin' teasing us with pathetic remixes of old skool tunes with boring tech-step beats. I'm not saying that tech-step is bad, i'm merely stating that if yer gonna spin the rmx, why the f*ck don't these dj's ever drop the original anymore?

    peace out,

    Serious.... I'm soo sick of MC's. Last time I checked people were goin to see the Dj's not hear some lame MC try to steal the spotlight from em'

    All the nice ladies stoped going to jungle parties when they were invaded by throngs of kids.

    actually, i don't think the kids scared away the ladies - i believe that the music got too dark and too fast for ladies to enjoy it. the music gives off this air of testosterone and aggressiveness. ever notice the ratio of guys to girls is not even??? sh*t... way too many guys!

    btw, i am not bashing darker drum n bass or tech-step, two-step, and whatever else is being spun by the majority of t.o. dj's, i am trying to point out that there is no variety of styles of the newer sounds.

    drum n bass needs to slow down a tad, get more soulful lyrics, and more groove!!!

    one more thing... less arrogant MCs!

    btw, that was my last empire party. thank you.

    kenxie...loook at you and your big words! i know that deep down inside you admire mc p...i mean he's no caddy cad but come on!

    sketch-step..i have to agree with dazed on this one. two years ago, i would hit *at least* two jams a month, now i'm lucky if i hit one every two months. there are a number of different reasons why i stopped, one being cos i'm super busy with stuff but another is that there *are* too many kids. i mean, if a 15 year old wants to go out and have a good time..more power to em. but when you have a 15 year old snot nose looking at me funny cos i'm wearing a skirt, thats when i start getting beef. it pisses me off to see kids put on their tired badass stances (and meanwhile they live next door to me in brampton). as much as i miss those tight little jams, when it comes down to it, i'd rather go to turbo or milano's or nasa (or something of those sorts).

    two-step is actually more garage based so it is more of a groove, hence im lovin' the UK G, its got a sexy feel to it which im after.
    i mean i love some of the harder edge ragga and all but the new dark tech stuff: no! and like natalie i like to dress nice, yes sometimes to big parties i wear an ecko hoodie *gasp* but to the smaller parties i like wearing skirts and dresses as that's what im into.

    c'mon natalie... don't hate... i still got all my curves in all the right places!

    no need to diss MC P to the max yo! all these people are ranting on about how MC P ain't all that and he's not 'all that' or anything but ya know, he does his thing. Sure, he goes on a little bit too much sometimes, but like damn, can you do better?? It bothers me when people cuss up DJs and MCs when they can't do shit themselves. It's like yeah, alright, maybe it's a bit too much sometimes, but at least it's more than I can do. So much for rudeness.

    oh yeah, and about wearing skirts -
    fuck the crusty raver kids !! just cuz they let their pants drag all over the ground and shit doesn't mean that you can't wear skirts!! Whilte they go home and pick gum and black floor goo off the bottom of their pants and think "shit, I paid 200 bucks for these things" means that you can go home and not have that shit to take care of. Words of wisdom. Rudegal.

    I believe that by paying my cover at clubs i am given the right to voice my opinion on the people that are paid to perform there...

    thats not the point, people pay money to listen to some good music. When an MC or DJ fuck people have every right to bitch about it.
    you shouldn't be up there in the first place if you suck. see I can't DJ or MC so I don't go around calling myself one, and spinning at parties.

    ouch... that can't be right.

    arent there like, unwritten MC rules about that?

    its pretty cocky to assume that the person who is there to play the records is willing to relinquish that power to the person who is there to talk on the mic.
