Funky, funky, funky goodness in both rooms. Great vibe, great crowd, and amazing music. Mat the Alien was phenomenal. Closing set in the back room was rocking... until the room got shut down. Taro played some nice funky breaks as well (I believe it was Taro). Way to go make it funky crew, you guys always seem to impress!
Wow. That was a giant piece of funk! and I loved it!
Chu is Funk. He proved this is evening. Slow burn, slow down slow whatever you call it, niiiiiiiice. Wax Romeo had some mad tracks, great selection and flow! Ventured to the back room were Zirca stepped up with some sweet smooth DNB (Everyday-shy fx..sick) Then plopped back to see Mat The Alien, and this guy is all sorts of awesome. Scratch this, pull that, mix this...genius! I hadn't seen shit like this since the likes of Dopey and Mix Master Mike! I am sadden'd that I had to leave early.
High fives to Farbs (great party, nice suit), Jo Jo (it's good to see you alive), Stressy, CHUUUUUUUUU, Druz, Brish (welcome to teh country pal), Lucy, and Mitssssuko Jens who rocked the dancefloor with me!
What a great night!!!
Tons of cool people, and such a variety of faces! Haven't been to the elmo in a while ..like what they did with the back room..Got there early and started off the dance floor in the larger room..great dancers btw..love breaks for that! got free stuff, drank, met some people, and had a lot of fun..that can't be beat... overall 8.5/10
Can't wait for the next one on the 1st of April with fort knox.
Zirca killin it with some funky ass liquid dnb Wax Romeo,Big League Chu,Knowledgebass,Dave Dub,Farbsie Wax romeo layin it down Excuse me.... While I kiss the sky! Timmy diggin zirca as he stated above Mat The Alien and his 7" slipmats (Fantastic Idea) Mat The alien doin his thang Crowd goin off for Mat
It was wicked to see so many new and familiar faces getting down in the Funk Lounge, it was a great way to start off the night! Thanks again to all of you who braved the sub-Arctic temperatures and made it out.
It was the first time I seen Mat play live, and he lived up to and exceeded all the hype....Sick set dude!!! I am still blown away by the depth of his crates, and his unreal collection of 45's. Also a very down to earth guy, with his very own slipmats My g/f flew out to Whistler on Sunday morning, and is going to check out Mat on Wednesday.
Looking forward to the next Make It Funky party with FK5!!
The now magazine review can be found here. Funny that people still regard us solely as breaks parties. We have never put the word breaks on a flyer (unless beside a specific dj) and most of our djs play everything from funk house dnb breaks jazz rock or whatever in the course of thier sets.
Word to that. Glad to see Toronto has finally got a taste of MTA. Mat rules, and one of the nicest guys in the world. A REAL DJ with crazy deep crates.
Wood & Soo are touring out east in the summer.... look for Toronto dates on their site www.woodnsoo.com .
