Well, Well, Well... my 1st actual rave in a while.
Now I know what I don't like about raves...
Especially big ones at the docks.
Too packed! It was ridiculous last night. And even though I had a VIP pass for Media pics, I still didn't get on the Front Stage at all that night, due to the security being assholes. I even witnessed a promoter and a few DJs waiting to get on stage.
O well, security sucked. Not the promoters fault. But would of been nice to get some nice shots during Dilinja & Keith.
The backroom was pumping most of the night... when I got in Kamikaze was just starting up, thanks to the hour in Coat check. Another reason I hate partying in the winter. Kamikaze played a lot of Chicago Hard House mixed with Booty and Hard Tech.. just the way I love it and the way I spin it. Couldn't of been happier.
After Kamikaze was down, Funk stepped up on the Decks. He was doing a better job Technically on the mixer this time around. He wrecked a few, but the man is the Booty Master.
During these two sets I spent a bit wandering around trying to get on Stage for Dilinja & Keith with no avail. But the front room was too packed for my liking, but the energy up there didn't stop. Was kind of upset to see some people on the floor around pilars very early I must say.
But the music didn't stop in the front room and the vibe just kept going.
After Funk John E was supposed to go on, But wasn't around, since Funk decided to go on a half hour early. So Kamikaze came back on for a short Hard Banging Techno set, my favourite set of the night by far, wish it would of been longer. John E finally showed up and threw down a great set. Very energetic and some great track selection IMO. Kept the crowd going.
Up next was Czech and I was not impressed at all. It was very, very, very boring and I was reminded of some bad 80s tunes and what was supposed to be breaks. I like it funky but this wasn't doing it for me at all.
I adventured back into the Jungle room, and Dilinja was still keeping the crowd going and the locals were not disappointing at all.
Decided to grab my coat during the end of Czech's set and get out of there... I was tired and falling asleep
Overall a great party musically, but the Venue I prefer as a one room party which never really happens. Last time I was there for one room was for Area One. And it was great...
Really nice meeting and seeing some people again.
