Fever should really have drum n' bass with breaks atleast once a month...people will come. Throwing in jungle once every few months just doesn't cut it...I'm sure most people won't even know that Kinetic and Ruckus are going to be there this week. And we all know that the house room isn't bring in the numbers (like 10 people there for Stretch & Hooker? That's sad).
Jonny, I know there's jungle going on in the city, but most of us want quality...a nice venue, with good DJ's.
Anyways, sentence I like your venue ideas. And I think that drum n' bass could work at the nicer venues. Someone like Lush could play a vocally set, and it would bring people out. Also, upandcomers like Doublecross and Velocity also play the vocally, funkier stuff which would be great for a nice venue.
As for house, someone like Deeno from Guelph plays deep house, which would be a nice change. And there's always the faithfulls from T.O. like Stretch & Hooker and Myka. Even a lot of people on this board spin house. If you want more of the techno tip, Kenny Glasgow's a favourite, and The Dukes are great up-and-comers.
I really suggest going with some locals from Ontario because we have the talent and it doesn't cost as much as bringing in out-of-towners. If you really want to bring bigger names in, I think someone like Halo or Vitamin D would be great.
My 2 cents.
btw sentence, do you have an e-mail address?
I agree on both fronts. UU is too big for that intimate feel I like about Hamilton parties, and Hudson is just not a club. It's a swank bar. I used to work there a few years ago, and when it started, it was wicked - Ivana Santilli played, you'd know everyone, good times. But now it's lost that edge it had. meh. Some of it had to do with the departure of Ken, the old owner - he let the promotors run the show. Dean and George are nice guys, but they're not in it for anything beyond the money.Originally posted by sentence
Urban Underground is nice but i'm reluctant to give the Border any business. I cant stand that place. Hudson is also great but Dean (the owner) doesn't understand the concept of having a promoter involved with his bar. He wants all the bar sales AND 50% of the door which doesn't leave much room to pay the dj's. I haven't ruled either of them out though. I'd also like to do parties at different venues to keep the venues from getting stale (which seems to happen pretty quickly in Hamilton).
Yah, it is a great place...if you're a breaker, and all your friends are breakers, and you're friends with the promoters.Originally posted by breakz_btch
