OH HELL YEAH! The techno room was sick! Then when Dogwhistle (still chuckling) came on and dropped Underworld, I thought I was wet my pants!

Definetly a winner there!

This party was more fun than I've had in a really long time.

We were totally "raving" again, which was just hilarious. I was laughing the whole night, but it was perfect because everyone there was in their 20's (or 30's!) and were just having fun reminiscing of older days. No preconceptions of how "cool" a raver should be, or how mature the music has to be, or how technically good the dj has to be. People just dusted off their old raving shoes from deep in the closet and came out for one last night of stupid fun.

The music was too much fun all night. The most memorable moments were probably when John E (was it him?) dropped "Age of Love," or when Chris Sheppard played Acen's "Trip to the Moon, part 2," mixed into "I Need Your Love." Classic! I never thought I would have been excited to see Chris Sheppard spin, but he was just perfect for the moment. Plus, he kept screwing up a few mixes, which meant he was actually trying to do it himself for once! Way to go Chris.


When Terry Kelly played his last track at 6am and said goodbye to everyone, it really seemed like something big had just ended. Toronto will never again see a dj lineup like that. Everyone went home to get back to their normal lives, but I'm still smiling because we went "raving" one last time.

This party was everything I expected it to be. Perfect oldschool crowd, wickid oldschool beats and a killer sound system to boot. Only thing that was unexpected was Chris Sheppard. His track selection blew me away. Hard to believe thats the same guy making all those cheesy Pirate Session Compilations.

Anyone that knows me, knows how much I love the older music so last night was heaven for me. Too many song to name, but I cant remember the last time I hear 'Nervous Breakdown' at a party...or the original 'Gamemaster'
I even heard TK drop on old old old house version of 'Not Over Yet'
'Cowgirl' and that wickid track with the Pink Floyd sample.

Did anyone else grab the old Atlantis flyers?

Hats off to Don Berns for organizing this event, I wish there were more of them.

Great party! It wasnt as full, but I think that was for the better! If there were as many or close to the amount of people like other partys thrown at this venue, I think the younger crowd would have out numbered. Don't get me wrong, but how often do you get to goto a non 19+ event and actually have a mature crowd (for the most part)? I was walking back to my car to get a belt (thanks to phil?? for letting me outside after fighting with the security over the "no in and outs", geesh I popped a button!) and was listening to a furious little girl complaining about not being allowed to bring in a souther! hehe.. not making fun of candy kids , but it was just really funny. oh well! I thought chirs sheppard was not allowed to go near the microphone?? ugh! was that his own camera crew? lame! but a positave note, i did like alot of the tracks he dropped. I am kicking myself in the ass for not staying to the end, it was not my fault, my friend "thought" it was 5:30 and we needed to have some rest for iDance (even though i didn't sleep, chatting with the boys ended up keeping us awake), so we left. When we got home it was 5:30.. ugh! again, shouts to the promoters and the dj's, and of course the people who made it!

jay!

Doublecross pretty much summed it up.
this party was a massive stroll down memory lane.
every single track that was played in the Originators Room made me say "oh my god! i havent heard this in forever!!"
the techno downstairs got my ass moving at the beginning of the night, but then i got all swept up in the vibe and excitement of the Originators Room.
mixing was almost non-existent, but i swear, it didnt matter one bit. the tracks were hilarious, ridiculous and all around a great time.
i loved Chris Sheppard's set, and Alx of London was hysterical.
the lights and decor made me feel like i was at a rave again, which was also a nice touch.

someone gave me a bracelet and a lollipop throughout the night and i didnt act like a jaded nincompoop about it

the average age of the crowd was probably 7 years older than the average toronto rave crowd nowadays.

as doublecross said to me and our friends at 5:30AM:

"Who thought you could still go raving in 2001?"

what a blast! thank you to Phryl and Dr. Trance and to all the old school partiers and DJs for coming outta the woodwork for an absolutely amazing night out!

The camera crew with Chris was from "BPM", the new digital dance music cable channel.
They were also out in force (without Chris) for iDance.

I agree with DJ Doublecross, we went ravin
one last time. That was one of the best raves
I have ever been to. Thats the way it use to be, and the way it should be. The scene has
changed so much. I guess its time for the
new generation, as we are getting older. Does
anybody remember the Honey Pot raves?..those
were the days..how about Scooters roller world?..what about Vertigo..CN Tower rave?
Thats one nite I will never forget. I miss being a 'RAVER'...RAVE ON!!!!
