Speedy J @ Gallery

Hello? Off the hook! It's nights like these I wish happened more often in this city. When you get beyond a certain point, you can't just go out every single weekend and stay up to daylight as often as you had before. But tonight, I wish it was up until daylight! The set was cutoff it seemed prematurely at around 4AM, and EVERY ONE in the room, it seemed to me, wanted much, much more.

MORE!

Good mix of people, some familiar faces from parties past, all added up to a good atmosphere. And the music...! Driving and relentless rythyms kept me oh so happy I wish I could the clock back to 2001.

Very nice attendance, not as packed as I had expected. There was a lot of anticipation for this event, so I figured that it would be a good idea to hit the venue relatively early, say around 10.30PM, but it there were only a few people there at that usually ungodly hour. It filled up pretty nice, but not to the packed sardines point that I usually expect in the Guvernment mainroom, but thankfully it was rather dark in most spots so I couldn't really see that it was a sausagefest. (Point up for debate.)

What else can I say? You know this is the techno you've wanted to hear, and here you would have heard it. It was a fulfilling set.

I really wish it went on for a little longer. I had been looking forward to Greg Gow's set, he's pretty good and has a nice track selection, but when Speedy J ended with this crazy massive buildup, the lights went on! And then I think all the people there felt a kinda disappointed feeling that whatever was going to happen, had already transpired.

And now we get to go home, or whereever people's habits would take them.

Speedy J was *incredible*!! Awesome night until the end. We're people not cattle, we deserved to be treated with more respect. Guvernment listen up -- more is expected of a club of your stature straight up.

Bang!!!!

Chuggity Chuggity...What a killer night. This was exactly what I wanted to hear. Got there early, to the Dukes, setting the mood with slick tech-house which builtup the groove that Mateo carried on from. Mateo was also nice and groovey but with a hard edge that had the floor in perfect position for the onslaught that was Speedy J.

Speedy was really agressive. Loads of builds with tons of fx. For nearly 3 hours, Speedy just toyed with the room and the energy. Totally proper techno. Straight up machine gun groove. Massive.

The crowd was 100% responsive. This was a barriage of beats, bliss and bass, with a side order of tons screaming and yelling. What a great crowd.

The only downside (and it really is sad because nights like this only come along every couple of years), was that they ended the night right at 4 am, cutting Greg Gow out of the picture. Everyone wanted more, but despite chants of "one more, one more", the staff cut the night off, leaving Speedy with a full floor of screaming slaves.

wow.

:p

Funny Encounter:

[im dancing, dude in blue plaid logger shirt and a big winter coat comes up]

"Hey you... you cant dance like that, dont dance like that man...'
"Fuck off! I can dance any way I want.."
"Did you just say fuck off??"
"Man, you ever say "fuck off" playfully to your friend over beer? I meant no disrespect..
"You disrespecting me??"
"no man, no I mean no disrespect"

[fucker's gettin ready for a fight but I talk him down over a few mins]

'...and so its cool for me to dance the way I do, just as it is for you to dance the way you do..."

"I don't dance. I MACK!"


<- no lies, he said it man, he actually said it. And I saw him putting his "mack" on and it was actually a close call for me to get a bouncer but the wily female escaped his clutches and I didnt have to...

still - what do people like that get OUT of a night like Speedy J? [shakes fist in anger]


GREAT night. GREAT music... may post more later

speedy delivered!!!

a damn mighty arsenal of sound a solid night!

crowd seemed to be up for relentlessness that was.

loved the dukes set. was less enthused about mateo murphy's records, but the dancefloor seemed to be in a fine state of anticipation, so whatever!

not my favourite venue, but hey, it was speedyfuckingJ!

definately worth headin' out in the cold for.

I went home last night and


THREW UP MOTHERFOOKING BASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

Got there around 12pm? 1230pm? some shit like that.

gigggle - giggle - HOT DOG PARTY! hehehehehe.

It was an interesting venue....

SPEEDY J!!!! FOOK!

BEST MOMENT OF THE NIGHT FOR ME:


I heard the sample of this certain tune.....

I tried my best to scream,


[size="20"OH MY FUCKING GODDDDDDDDD - WORK THAT PUSSY!"[/size]"


So I fooking leaned over - AND


[size="24"]GAVE HIM A HIGH-FIVE!!!! MY HAND TOUCHED HIS HAND
[/size]

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO IM NEVER WASHING THIS HAND AGAIN! ;)

Good thing he actually high-fived me - otherwise I probably would have slapped the side of his head.

hahahaha.


AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME SET.

A little birdie told me a certain vergie started recording the beginning but "stopped" it because it sucked. :mad:

When it doubt - KEEPRECORDING

I think I need to buy a new mp3 recorder - cause I had one on me but the problem is you have to plug it somewhere in order to record :mad:

ANYWAY!

I do have a few complaints.

Holy fucking cameras. I don't know how mr.speedddddddddddddddddddddyyyy could handle it, but those flashes were royally irritating me.


PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:

WEAR DEO!



holy fuck - were some people yelling - I was but I didn't have a booming voice that RATTLED my head.

People talking. listenfuckhead - I'm here to dance and break my neck. NOT HEAR SOME MURMBLEGRUMBLE SHIT!



I guess it was my fault for being slammed right in the middle of a crowd.


Anyway - i'll try to stick to a positive review

SPEEDY J SPEEDY SPEEEEEEEEEEEEDY JJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJ

fook me left right and centre.

the sound wasn't bad at all - then again i blew my ears out again being near the speaker.



OH YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.



oh shit. I almost forgot.

I was at the gallery - I hear my name called. WTF?

JENNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN.
:D


I met a few ta's

They were really lovely - unfortunately I was too warped in my own world and enjoying speeedyyyyyyy.


The hardest thing for me to do was try and leave this night early.

I did kinda but I should have left earlier!

anyway

I came, I danced, I left - had a great time, Speedy J fuiken killed it, loved the dukesd as always. Maeto was here and there but had me moving.

Got there at around 10:30 and stayed till close. But, I thought greg gow was to spin from 4-close? ahwell - my body probably thanks me for bringing it home a few hours earlier than planned.

But great party, I needed that.
