Re: Humate @ System

Whoa, that was interesting...

I'm not sure if I liked it or not. Parts of it were good, others had me completely lost and wondering if it was time to leave. The stuff he started off with was, well, not my flavour at all! It slowly improved and finally got into territory I could groove to. For the last 45 minutes he went all hard and trancey... I dunno.

Then at 2:30 AM the music got more to my liking, and I think to myself, 'Self, finally he's started to play stuff I enjoy' - only to look over and realize that it was Mark Scaife on the decks. It figures... Leave it to Mark to put a smile on my face.

The crowd certainly seemed to like it though. I haven't seen the crowd that into a set at Breathe in a long time.

Was it just me, or did it seem the place seem more packed than last week for Lee Burridge? I don't quite understand that!

Cheers,
Jay K.

Naturally ... Lee is better recognized for his DJing skills, whereas Humate is mainly recognized for his production work. There's no question who's going to put on the better show.

I thought Humate was good. Different, but good. He definitely got my attention by dropping Slam's "Lifetimes" as his second track in. It was great hearing that track for the first time on a big system.

Matt Coleridge got thing started off proper. You can always depend on Matt to have some VERY fresh tracks, and last night was no exception. The Satoshi Tomiie remix of Papa New Guinea is mindblowing, and Oliver Lieb's Pink Floyd sampling "The Fugitive" further solidifies his reputation as one of the world's best and most consistent producers. Big ups and respect to Mr. Coleridge for that.

Fleaflo and Silver Robot did an hour each in the backroom. These guys impress me more and more each time I see them. Very nice beats! Tribal goodness! The back room had a nice little vibe kickin' the time I was in there.

So nice to see all the regular faces out...you know who you are.

Peace.

Just caught the last bit of coleridge's set. Kickin' as always!

I thought what I heard of Humate's set was very refreshing. A little harder, and dare I say Trancier then I've heard in a while at system. His mixing seemed fine, and he was totally goin' nuts behind the decks. I would have liked to have stayed past 3:30 but I had a long day at work. Peace,

Matt

WICKED NIGHT! A good welcome home present, eh nesta?

Matt Coleridge once again showcased his amazing talents last night. Playing loads of NEW and exclusive tracks that were incredible. Tight mixing and great programing (taking it up and then down when appropriate). I almost melted when I heard Papua New Guinea (Satoshi Tomiie mix), amazing track.

Humate was ok. A couple shakey mixes and at times it got a bit too trancey for my liking but he still had a decent set. That one track with the LONG breakdown (I'm told it is his production) was awesome!

Props to the back room crew (Luke & Carlos and Fleaflo) for playing great sets as well.

hmm. I've got to meet all of you next time I'm in Toronto...I had no idea there were any tribe kids besides Highsteppa at System friday.

I spent a good part of the night dancing to the funky beats in the back room...baby blue t-shirt, ballcap, cargoes.

Nesta, have we met?

I thought Humate was playing from 1-4 on Friday. I was from like 2:30-3, and he was still on the decks.

I don't think so. However, I will be there for Saeed and Palash this Friday. Peace.

Not I. I live in Montreal!! I'm going to try to see S&P at Living on sunday night here. We'll have to meet sometime when I move back in October!

You can look up on that circular thing to the left of the DJ booth - it announces the DJ on the decks. Or last call that seems to last about 30 minutes.
It's a good thing they don't have to hire some guy to yell out "LASSSSSSSSSSSSST CALL" for half an hour.

I didn't get a chance to hear Humate at all - but overall, heard good things about his set. Most commonly used phrase to sum up his set, - "interesting".

I was in the backroom all night, listening to Flea tear it up with some crazy tribal madness. Luke and Carlos as usual were up to their usual no good, spinning some nice dark and funky beats - those of us who stayed in that room got to hear Luke's brand new tracks, and Carlos funking around with the controls and records.

Overall, the night was an amazing fun filled night with no attitude and a wicked vibe. It was good seeing Nesta and James, Naomi, Ivan, Ambarish and the rest of the crew - sorry if I missed out anyone, I was very, very drunk.
