Gaetano Parisio @ Eggellemment

Well well well...

All you muthafukkahs who thought Gaetano was going to spin soft housey shit were sadly mistaken.

HE FUCKING KILLED. Hard as shit ALL night long. I'm sorry, ElektroTekBabe, you would have LOVED IT!

..or so my feeble mind imagines.

Shout outs to:

derek: I love you, when will you be mine? :p

SpazGirl: NEVER give me phone numbers on napkins at parties. I sweat like a PIGGIE (awww, Kumi!) when I dance, and am currently drying your number out. It's good to know I have a new party-pal! :D

Destro Sanchez: Dude, I'm so glad I met you, and thanks for the beer! Hopefully I'll make it out tomorrow and return the favour. We'll have to chat sometime.

mr tall: What can one say about mr tall, but FANTASTIQUE! Nice to meet you!

Ok, now the BAD. I FUCKING HATE ELEMENT WHEN IT'S RAMMED. I get all sucky and selfish and think that people should respect my space, when that's really an impossibility. HOWEVER, it would be nice if people would at least give a hand on the shoulder and an "Excuse me" when smashing into me. IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK? Especially when I'm dancing, I FUCKING HATE THAT! I saw some girl who looked like she just jumped out of Flashdance who was ready to pummel someone for the same reasons. I kept laughing at her, because I could relate, but I think it just made her more angry. Oh well.

The GOOD. I really like partying at Element. I always see people I know, me and Julian ALWAYS do a shot of tequila to start the night, and I can stand behind the speakers and not totally fry my ears.

Anyway, good tunes, a little lethargic so I was not up to my usual full tilt spastik freakshow. Lotsa hot women, I must add. Especially one girl whom I was considering trying to steal away from her boyfriend, but decided I was too tired.

Oh, I had to leave because my left calf kept cramping up.

Oh, and dancing in black socks makes my feet really dirty.

Oh, and I really love taking a nice hot shower when I come home.

Oh, I wish I had a reefer, but all I have is a big glass of Polish Bison grass Vodka.

Oh, who fucking cares?

BBB.

Preach on! I couldn't dance for more than 30 seconds without someone pushing or shoving to get through. What really pissed me off was that it was the same people over and over again pushing to leave the front, and then pushing and shoving to get back. WTF!??! Do people not dance in one area any more? :mad:

m..m and I were trying to figure out which bald guy you could've been. We did however draw the line at going up to everyone with no hair and feeling if the fabric of their shirt to check if it was terry cloth. :D

<---- also with a shaved head.

great times..

tooooo packed...
had to buy 3-5 beverages at a time and bring em to the front where there was a little bit of space directly behind gaeteK...behind the wall of the dj booth!!

BBB- when it's less packed we will chat it up like old ladies

I only got a couple good dances in at the back on my way out...and up front in front of the fan. I like Element a lot more when I can 'Bruk out' (is that what you junglists call it?!? ;))

Gettin kinda bored with Gaetano Parisio....doesn't really do it for me. Adam Marshall was more fun last night IMO.

i was looking for bbb and ladd everywhere.

great night!
yeah, element was rammed jam, but what did you expect on one of the busiest nights out of the year?
gaetano started off playing some tech house, but quickly kicked it up a step, and never looked back from there. relentless indeed! driving basslines and crispy drum kicks, which sounded oh so sweet on the element sound system. gaetano had a few skips and glitches here and there, but every time he would fuck up he would come back with an even sicker mix. he used 3 decks on more then a few occasions, juggling pure beats.

nuff hotties inside the place! :p

jeremy caulfield was spinning some nice deep electro upstairs at the beginning of the night, but his mixing was off. same with adam marshall...wicked tracks, but he fucked up pretty bad a couple of times. i'd be looking around, and peeps would just look lost and confused.

anyhow, i had a great time, and so did all my friends, and after all, that's what matters most. :)

maximum respect goes out to john lickrish and the mission crew for putting together a nice intimate affair for the long weekend that gets the spring/summer party season rollin' proper!

what can i say, i love element! :D

oh, gaetano played some sick remixes of green velvet's 'flash' and 'la la land' that i have never heard before. and, as i was leaving at about 3:30am, he played the best remix i've heard yet of the chemical brothers 'out of control'. deadly!

peace out!

Yup I made it out to this event. I decided to pass on the Kool Haus event and go for something more intimate.

Like, come on folks....this is Marco Carolla's boy! So I HAD to represent.

Ah...Element was sweet and cosy. Folks were very friendly too. Gae-Teck did exactly that. Techno baby!!!! It was a sweet vibe.

I brought a newbie out with me last night to the scene......

.......after listening to the DJ upstairs and then listening to Gaetano downstairs she replied, "I like it hard!!!"

....I said, "Ok babes....but what do ya think about the music?"

:D

Yes I am sure about that dude!
Marco and Gaetano are infamous for playing together on 4 decks. I believe that they are both from Naples

I have spoken to Marco before (when he played at Element a while back) and I joked with him about where was Gaetek.

BTW...I've never seen your handle either.....not saying I particularly know what's up....but just because I don't post in the Techno room.....is no reason to diss me....

So Yeah....

I guess you can say I know what is what......while you just strut.....what the fuck......

Regardless....I we both had a good time last night!

sorry doug,
it just seems that gaetek hasnt been given the recognition he deserves lately. He's a great producer, and he's responsible for many many tracks that we've all heard and loved at one point, and he can definitly hold his own on three tables. I dont know where he got the name boretano either, he was all over the tables and mixer, bopping around, pretty much creating his own music on three decks, allways having two records at least playing together. but the main point is that it sounded awesome. i've seen him about 6 times, and this was one of his better nights.
i'm sure if someone inserted the name jeff mills in your sentence...
(i'm not comparing gaetek to jeff mills btw)

(sorry to hear your friend had to get a taste JEFF MILLS as her first techno experience...

you would definitly be all over there face! ;)
anyway,
gaetek was great and he rocked element.

Peter, hey man i appologize if i offended your tastes, fuck don't get me wrong Gaetano is one of my favorite producers....but as you've said, you have seen him about the same amount i have ...

just the last time he was out (turbo) he destroyed my ear drums with his eq'ing ( bass heavy) and i heard from numurous of people he played the same way...

anyhow, look im glad you and everyone who witnessed him out this time around had fun...which is what its about dude...

:)

peace,

Doug.

my buddy just reminded me tonight that adam marshall dropped 'bronski beat - small town boy'.
i'm not sure if it was a remix or if he just layered it on top of another track.
anybody know? the crowd went apeshit!
it sounded so fresh and full in the basement of element.

i don't know how i could have forgotten.

Found this from a website!

* djinsomnia - Nov 12, 2001
Italy's Gaetano Parisio, aka Gaetek, once informed his school teachers that on graduation all he wanted to do was enjoy himself - he had no particular career in mind. Gaetano ended up studying law, before quitting after his first exam. But when it came to electronic music, Gaetano was more than happy to apply himself and today he's among the hardest working DJ/producers in the techno scene.
In his youth Parisio listened to old disco, as well as New Order and Depeche Mode. Later he progressed from buying records as a hobby to spinning and making them. It took Gaetek two years to define his sound in the studio, then he was off. Parisio put out his early material on his good friend Marco Carola's Design label. In 1997 Gaetano launched his own concern, Conform, which now has a catalogue of 15 issues. Gaetano has just lately established a new off-shoot, SouthSoul, for some housier productions. He's also involved with the limited edition ART Records. In fact, Gaetano has prepared a compilation album of ART tracks, which is due this month. It's geared to all those who couldn't get hold of the originals. Currently Gaetano is taking a rare break from production after a busy last year, but he will resume on return from Australia.
Many of Parisio's peers are beginning to move away from hard, minimal techno into housier terrain, with some interested in what is loosely termed 'listening music'. Gaetano may be enthusiastic about his housey SouthSoul productions, yet he still digs his techno. "My soul is still really in techno. The thing is when you work so much in the studio I think it's a natural thing to change and want to do something new. Or you also get new inspiration - when you listen to a lot of music, you get new influences; travelling a lot you always get new influences from all the countries where you've been. I think that's why it's natural, it's a logical step, trying to change and do different stuff. Actually, I'm also doing a lot of listening things. I've got hundreds of tracks in my studio. Some time they will be released, but not at the moment. It takes time."
In 1999 Gaetano attracted attention in the wider dance scene for his efforts in orchestrating the Techkommunity 4 Kosovo compilation, with tracks by Ben Sims, Adam Beyer, Cari Lekebusch, Sven Vath and Laurent Garnier. (Only one artist failed to submit a track after initially promising it, and Gaetano declines to reveal his identity.)
Italy has a small techno scene and, for this very reason, Carola chose to relocate to Germany. However, Gaetano remains based in his native Naples. (He jokes that he would miss the food and girls too much.) "I think it is a good choice, but you have to balance quality of life and work, and I prefer to still live here. I mean, [Marco] moved to Frankfurt and London and in both places actually the weather is always grey and cloudy - and I can't do that."
Nevertheless, as a frequent flier, Gaetano pays the price for staying in his hometown. "The only thing really that I miss is a big airport, because I fly every week from Naples, and Naples has got a small airport, so I always take connections," he explains, sighing. "Actually, I think I am the DJ who has lost the most records ever, because I always take these connections, and it's a little bit stressful. But it's OK, I can work."
Gaetano has found something of a solution by driving for two hours to Italy's main airport in Rome, cutting out one connection and thereby minimising the chances of his records going astray. The problem is it's very tiring week in, week out - and Gaetano is exhausted. "I am, I am - because I haven't taken any holidays now for two years," he says, laughing. "I think I'm going to take five days of holidays when I will be there in Australia. I think I will be going to the Reef. I'm really looking forward to it."
Gaetano then asks all about the Great Barrier Reef - which, he soon learns, is fairly isolated from anything approximating a techno scene. "That's what I need - no records!," he laughs. "That's perfect!"
