Haha! I was at TWILO that same weekend. You're forgetting he spun SANDSTORM around the same time.It was obvious PVD to me at the time PVD had his heart into it. The only commercial track he played was Chicane's Saltwater at 5 AM

PvD has sort of become the joke of the european dance scene. He still has a very large following, but more sophisticated clubbers only make fun of him. His style was pretty good a few years ago (even progressive at times) but now it's just dated and boring... the guy is just stuck in the past.
Pete - It's his eyes. The eyes get me everytime I see a guy. And his eyes....my god...Guys + Big eyes=SEXOriginally posted by Subsonic Chronic:
Really?? I wasn't there on Saturday, but from all the pictures I've seen he kinda looks like a muppet.

I love BREATHE, I have alot of fun there. never been dissapointed
but why do u ppl keep mentioning it, have you heard of overkill...you are turning me off it
STOP FOR FUKS SAKE THEY WERE ON DIFFERENT NIGHTS
why are u mentioning it in this thread
PVD was not competing against breathe, or playing music that u would hear at breathe....so stop
please its annoying
u are turning me and many others away from that night
talk about breathe when adressing competition, something which PVD or GUV is definately not
since they are on different nights
Hey that's a really good point. electronic/dance music gets lumped together so often that a few people might just go to any show blindly, not making the distinction of "there is a difference between progressive and hard house, and I don't like trance".Originally posted by LoopeD:
To everyone who's wondering why most people on this board didn't like Paul van Dyk's set its because they are all into progressive. Since Paul van Dyk is NOT a progressive dj, I don't know what you expected him to spin. ?????
There's nothing bad about that, until you pay money to go to a hard/epic trance show then come on here and say it sucked. If you like progressive, go to progressive shows. And try broadening your musical taste a little!Originally posted by drude:
What the hell's up your ass?
Why are getting so offended? Those people were merely stating that since breath has started they now prefer the music played there over what PVD plays. what's so bad about that?
"u are turning me and many others away from that night"
Good, you're not wanted anyways.
Please don't quote me out of context. I never said it was "ALL" ravers, I said "too many" for my preferences. I like to go clubbing with a well-dressed crowd, a more Gino crowd ... that's why I'm at MEOW on Friday nights and not System.IT IS NOT ALL RAVERS AND THE MUSIC IS REALLY NOT BORING!

I really dislike gross incorrections, especially when they are passed off as judgments:
-looped and adrian don't know what they hell they are talking about. First of all both of you have indicated how you dislike progressive, you think it is boring and too many ravers go to Breathe...HA! lol!
Both of you make me laugh because you guys keep on judging breathe nights as if you are there every single friday. You have openly said that you don't go there much - well guess what? - I have probably missed 4-5 shows all together since they started and I can tell you that: IT IS NOT ALL RAVERS AND THE MUSIC IS REALLY NOT BORING!
From what I gathered the crowd is encompassed of the following: ravers, muscle heads, music lovers, the odd drag queen and couples looking for something new in the clubbing district. Remember Industry?
I guess in comparison to raves in which MAINLY ravers go to, the night is so not well diverse is it?
adrian you have openly stated your liking for the guvernment before, I guess the music that hey play there is so happening/cutting edge that you would rather hear the same guy (mark oliver) and relatively the same talent being brought to Toronto instead of live acts or reknow top dj's of the progressive genre. I would take the guverment any day ofcourse!, it is big is crowded they play very commercial trance for the most part (on regular nights) and the punters there adore Mark Oliver (who is an on and off dj)- well done you!!~Kudos on your discriminating choice of clubbing.
I guess we WILL have to take both of you guys observations on a quality night, since you have been there every single friday to judge and observe the growth of that particular night. Please type away I beg you.
-As for PVD, I guess when people pay up to $40 to see a dj they expect something good. Not mediocre. That is precisely what we got. He is still a grossly overated dj, definetly worth $20 but really!- not $40.
If it comes down to dollars and sense from your perspective, let's all open our bank accounts and choose to give our money to the huge club. Let's give 'em up to $40 at the door to see what we all know is an overated dj. Let's all pay for crowded rooms, let's all pay to hear sped up euro-trance which you can probably hear in the radio for the most part; all of that while being targeted by advertising from a certain brand of cigarettes. That is just great fun isn't?
This is a review post. People can say what ever they want about the event they attended, after all - that's what a review is all about.Originally posted by AdRiaN:
why does everyone else feel it necessary to flood a PVD thread complaining it was too cheesy?
