I was there, it was a good night - not crowded either (guess everyone was at Kool Haus instead).
Got a good house set from Eric to start followed by Kenny who did the transition from house to tech-house and finally to electro.
John Selway followed later than I expected, at 2am with an excellent total electro throw-down.
Left part-way through to check out Shannon's party but they wouldn't let anybody in at that time, so I was back at Red Sq. to catch the final 1 1/2 hrs of Selway's set. Had me dancing non-stop until there were only 5 ppl left at 4am.

Thanks to my two partners in crime for the company and guest-list, cheers to @m & KF too.

This is the e-mail I got from Most Wanted..

No confusion..I've never heard or seen him play breaks either hence the curiosity :rolleyes:

Techno/ electro guru JOHN SELWAY is back to rock
Toronto with his nu-school breaks and funky
elect-tech.

This New York based internationally acclaimed DJ/
producer rocked it so hard & funky for the PAUL
OAKENFOLD/ CHEMICAL BROTHERS after-party people have
been begging him to return!

And he does... this Saturday, July 27 for the city's
best new night (Chart Magazine) ... NATION @ RED
SQUARE... located at the corner of Richmond & Duncan.

Check out the link below for info on JOHN SELWAY!

Come early to insure entry!

see you dancing!

princess knows jack about the artist! HA! in fact princess knows alot about the artist nesta...

for those of you who say that John Selway never plays breaks I have this to say.

UK press often refer to John Selway as one of the creators or new school breaks with the Selway flavour... or breaky electro tech... perhaps their definition of breaks is different from ours...

however, those of you who really know John Selway know that he almost defies categoriezation and in some territories like the west coast he is a TRANCE DJ/ producer...

*on another note* i unfortunately missed this one due to a war with the Racoons trapped in my house, however, Nation @ Red Sqaure has become my new favorite place! Why?
*the vibe is INCREDIBLE!
*95% of the crowd dances the whole night
*NO SKETCH
*85% of the crowd actually know the DJ & are there for that... unlike the usual crowd where I would bet less than 40% actually know who is playing.

YEAH FOR NATION!!!!
Kenny's doing a 5 hours set this week... which will be tight!!!!!! Those of you who saw the last one know how good this is going to be!

:D

nikki, r u princess most wanted? :p

i've heard a dozen mixes from john selway, and numerous remixes and productions.

he is most def all over the place, and defies classification.

however, while he has played a touch of electro breaks and some tracks he drops have elements of breakbeat in them, i have never heard him play a full on nu skool breakbeat number.

whatever, he's still one of my all time fave artists. :)

I was one of the 5 left at the end when the lights came on. Nice dancin' with ya!

As for the breaks "controversy"... I was there for Mr. Selway's entire set and he did in fact play "breaks" quite often. Just not breaks in the stereotypical fashion. Call it electro-breaks/industrial breaks whetever but the kick was deviating from a 4/4 beat a lot... it just never resorted to a standard old school 2-3 kicks per bar beat. His manner of breaks is more 5-6 kicks per bar... a non-4/4 rumble (think Skinny Puppy... who he in fact played). As for the whole "electro" term, after the lights came on I spoke with John for awhile and we got taliking about the more pounding portion of his set. He asked me to define what I would classify it as.... I told him "Indutrial House" and he totally broke up saying that I nailed it.

Regardless of Genre... I still maintain... set of the year!!!
