    For those that couldn't make it, you really missed out. I thought her set kicked ass. She was totally into the beats and paid attention to the crowd and the musik. The next time she's in town, i'm there front and centre. Price wise, i think i'd pay up to $30 to see her. The most i'd ever pay for a party is about $40. So i guess she gets 3 out of 4 stars [​IMG]

    Turbo kinda sucked though. At least coat check was crap...the wait was 20-30 minutes. Hire more staff or something!

    She kicks ass.

    Dare I say it...best canadian techno DJ...maybe even better than Hawtin.

    Personally I think she has more presence and work harder behind the decks, give you a better party sort of speak.

    If you haven't had enough of her she'll be in London this thursday for RISE!
    Not for $30 or $40 but only $10.00 [​IMG]

    Barbara's set was amazing!- Anyone who was there has seen just how talented a dj and what a stage presence she has...

    There's an interview w./ Misstress Barbara in my 'zine: The Women of Techno Project. It also features other prominent female techno djs/producers: Punisher, and Monika Kruse.

    More info. TBA.

    I'm placing a second vote for The Misstress. She's hella more entertaining and actually watches/interacts with her crowd.

    Actually, I have to agree. Her mixes were more interesting and inspired and she palys for both the crowd and for herself.

    Hawtin plays for the praise.

    I also agree. Both are amazing DJ's but I'd rather see Mistress Barbara live.

    I was so satisfied with the music on friday night, I didn't even feel the need to see tiesto on saturday.

    It was awsome watchin her work three decks for over three hours, I can imagine how tired she must have been afterwards!

    To tell you the truth... (I liked her set better then Derrick May @ Tonic!)

    The only thing that would have made the night better was UK GOLD - Agent wood.


    Peace & love. D

    yea yea same as the J-Majik thread. [​IMG]

    SLAMMIN!!! Thanks to Penny, Adam, Debbie, Frank, and Ryan for goin out friday night.. after being at the docks all evening, we didn't wanna call it a night so we kept on going, and it was awesome.. Turbo is one sick club.. the music in there is soooooo loud, takes forever to get a drink, but the music was superb! It was packed, but we found room to dance and get into trouble.. Misstress Barbara was slammin techno down on
    3 decks upstairs and she was relentless - non stop pounding techno.. I'm quite interested to check out her new release on Moonshine, if its anything like she plays out it'll be a must buy. Headed on down to the basement and it was slammin down there also - J Majik and MC MC were doing a damn fine job, it was hard and pounding, and people were enjoying it full on.. went
    back and forth up and down the stairs to enjoy both floors, to me it was worth the $20 to get in.. although we did lose Ryan and went back to the hotel without him, but adam reassured us it was ok so its his fault. =)

    day 1 - lost 1 person, rev intake was at an extreme, day started at 11am, night ended about 5am, one pissed off cab driver "no no no take 5 people," us - "shut it, we'll pay ya." My body is still paying for this night...

    Her newest release is well worth the money! No question about it.

    It pounds!

    BTW. She is damn hot!

    There are lots of pictures that I took of Barbara at Tonic when she was here in November- in the Women of Techno Project. A 'zine featuring interviews w./ many female djs, promoters, producers, booking agents, etc.

    I'm looking forward to finally making enough copies to sell in stores!
