It means a lot to me.

In the last few months I have had the pleasure of attending a string of really good events. Orbital, Basement Jaxx, Monolake, Bittersweet, JMK reunion, Promise parties, the dukes @ system, even stretching back to July of last year with Richie and John at Kool Haus (ugh, I still can't get over that name) etc etc etc.. This is all following a hiatus (4 months or so, a long time for me!) from partying in response to the way "the scene" was seemingly growing stale. The only things that kept me going out were Lifeforce Fridays at Turbo (thank you for those WIKKID nights, BTW!!!) and the odd BuildingBlocks, clonk, Technomeet etc one off events.

Lately, I have really been thinking about what it all means to me. Why do I go out, why does the music mean so much to me? I think it baffles my co-workers sometimes when I put on Yoshiesque2 or Kenny's Toronto Mix Sessions and dance around (literally) the kitchen. Well, not all of them. Regardless, nights like Bittersweet and the Promise parties have really given a positive spin to my attitude towards going out. There is nothing like going out and being surrounded by people who are generally considerate, friendly and all united by the impossible to ignore need to get the fuck down! I love going off at a party and turning to whoever is next to me in the same state as we both grin like fools. That was one of the beauties of Industry, after 4 or 5 am. People getting off, together.

Sometimes I think I'm naive for believing in this, but I think this underlying feeling is what unites us, and makes us strong as an underground collective. Because no matter how popular and accessible the music has and will become, there is still the underground of people who truly LOVE the music, going out and getting the primal release of dancing hard. I love being at a party and watching people who I can really see are feeling the music. There is almost nothing that makes me smile like that. I love being at a party and having people invade my intense party mode with random acts of kindness and goodwill.

I'm a rambling flake... but you know who you are, and now you know that I love you. You are what makes "the scene" wonderful and rewarding. We. Let's hold on to it, and take it further than ever.

BBB.

Fucking hippie. :rolleyes:

Like we were talking about on thursday BBB, there are certain parties and club nights that are way better then others. You seem to pick the right parties to go to that draw the right people.


I agree that if it wasnt for these parties I woul dhave given up on the scene by now. Also the people that I continually run into at these parties make all that much better. I hope the scene keeps on progressing in this direction because it is time for a new beginning now that a lot of the clubs and parties that would bring in the people that were in the scene for the wrong reasons have pretty much died.

Small parties are pretty much they way to go these days and they have to keep the promotion down so only the people that deserve to be there are there!

Again quality will triumph over quantity. I think everything is heading in the right direction these days, or maybe it's just that I am.

Keep it real?

That's totally what it's all about...every time I go out I hope it's going to be better than the last, the people will be cooler, the music will be funkier, the girls will be sexier, the drugs will take me higher...it's an all out release baby and I can't get enough!!!

BTW as BBB says, the Promise parties are always amazing, if you haven't been, check them out if you can. The best party vibes...
