ok, so Greg and Jamie's sets were "ok" - but i guess everyone is just "ok" when compared to speedy J! Got there just as Greg was getting off and Jamie was beginning to play....

As always, a certain adrenaline fills the room when Speedy J hits the laptops. Last night's gig was an absolutely phenomenal display of hard, layered, pounding techno - with enough whispy, whooshy high end frequency sound generation to pull your brain in opposite directions and give your muscle fibres a seizure. Sitting back, I really paid attention to how Speedy J was putting his music together and it was remarkable - some of his clips lasted upwards of 15 minutes - while really heavy basslines marched in, syncopated, broke, and returned to their original cadence. Speedy J is a master at what he does because he listens to how sound frequencies harmonize and break - all night long he was dropping clicks and high hats that fell out of time with the lead bassline and then "caught up" with it again as he crescendo-ed the "movemement" -- when you put this on top of layer upon layer of "beats" you have amazing techno. And that is what last night was. Perhaps one of the greatest displays within the walls of FW - in my opinion (and I've marched many a night within FW!)

You had to experience it to really "hear" what was going on...

If this sounds overly-intellectual, I'll just add that the dancefloor was totally entranced and possessed by every moment of Speedy J's set. My ears are still ringing - for a few moments i went to the front and the air from the speakers was actually rippling my t-shirt! fucked up.

that's my review..........

and on the eighth day... there was Jochem Paap.

I have seen SpeedyJ tear it up 6 times now... and last night was easily... the most intense, the most manipulated, the most energetic, twisted, cyborg love-song I've ever cried to.

All I have to say is "HOLY FUCKING SHIT."

By far the best set I have seen in a long time. Mechanical, dirty, funky. Speedy's programming is spot on, his use of effects and layers cannot be duplicated.

Thanks for providing a great night Platform!

Thanks to Platform for bringing this pioneer back to Toronto. It really is a celebration of techno each and every time he touches down.... and I'm sooooooo glad I went. That bass... that mutherfuckin' bass...

After a 4 year period, Speedy reclaimed the number 1 spot on my favorite sets ever list. Awesome.

I felt the same way after I saw Speedy J vs Liebing. Madness! For what it is, it has no match.

I was texting about that at 6am and apparently it was not recorded.


On to the review...

That set was a killer, one of the best I've ever heard. If sets were regularly even half as good as that I never would have stopped going to clubs.

omfg. That was hands down one of the most awesome sets I've heard in almost a decade. I had a ridiculous perma-grin on my face the entire night. A little too crowded at times, though thats to be expected with someone of this calibre. I've been itching for a good bangin techno fix and that is most certainly what I got. Can't wait for his next visit!

Amazing night. I sweat my face off dancing and crawled home at 4am with the place still going nuts. Awesome!!

ok. the more i think about it, the more I have to say that SPEEDY J is a genius.

here's why:

What takes normal techno producers days or weeks to produce, Speedy does in a matter of hours.

What a normal techno producer calls a full length ep, Speedy calls a live set - essentially Speedy records two or three "albums" a week.

The amount of software he had running would confuse the best computer scientist - his seamless mixing and matching of sounds and longer clips was unbelievable - perfect I'd say.

Speedy is currently spearheading a project to have Dj's and producers from around the world send him their sounds so he can catalouge and use them for his live shows. Currently he has over 15 GB of different sounds. That is a fuck load of data. this man is not-human.

Again, if you missed sunday night, you missed something really special.
