Honestly, this was the best party I have been to in the longest time.

It felt like a family reunion. Friends everywhere, it was packed, and there was nothing but good tunes being pumped out.

I LIKE JUNGLE!!!! well, at least if it is spun by Doublecross and OTIS, because they were fucking incredible. I was dancing my little heart away. beautiful.

well, I am so beyond ability to type right now, but I just have to state that Mike.... it was amazing seeing you tonight.
and you came back with full force, people everywhere, smiles all around.... honestly.... I missed you so much.

thanks again, THUMP.

this night goes down in my fave night o' the year book!

Just got to my friend's place... SUCH A GOOD TIME. Had fabulous fun with everyone in attendance. Music and vibe (who talks about vibe anymore these days?) were absolutely killer.

The Music:

Otis BTB Toxic: Some of the hardest oldschool jungle i've heard in a long time. Was callin for the reaload like a madman for Ready or Not, which I haven't heard since DJ Hype a couple years ago. hyyyype set, lots of fun

Doublecross: Always a good time, always extending the borders of DNB a little further. Trick of Technology was due for some play time since it's been at least 3 years since i've heard it spun at a party. ('cept for otis!... TWICE IN ONE NIGHT, how can you go wrong?)

"I want you to take me into your labratory, show me just what it is you ARE doing..... tell me what it's all about!"

When was the last time i was happy that i heard a song played twice? Those two sets brought me back, and i loved the basement at Labyrinth tonight.

Aright... Subsonic Chronic rocked upstairs like only he knows how. Big fun each and every time.

Mike - MKMirage. GOOD times had by everyone. Glad to see everything you've learned in the UK. Enjoy every second you've got out there, man.

ATAT played lotsa epic to keep the vibe alive.... kickin major ass like only he knows how. Pour the gin SLOWLY!

Always good to see lots of people out having a great time. Suprising the number of people out, it was obviously well put together. Biggup the THUMP organizers... mad respect for throwing the best party so far of 2002.

Cheers everyrone. Have a good one. -Duncan

OTIS and DOUBLECROSS fucking own!!!
First time ever hearing OTIS spin and he's got a wicked aura when he's up there. There were some tracks that I haven't heard in a LONG time. Congratulations on the TRIBE feature, you deserve it, man. And Doublecross is just a fucking class act. Again, wicked to hear your sets. Always.

Also, much respect to the THUMP! people for packing it. It looked like a good turnout.

Omg, tonight was one of those nights that reminded me of how WEIRD this whole Tribe phenomenon is. How I can sit, look around and see a million people that I care about and respect. The atmosphere was amazing and I thank all of you for being a group of individuals who love music so much. It's inspiring to see the support.

And a big thanks to everyone who was nice to my "boyfriend" who showed up unexpectantly. He's more into house but the friendly people made him feel less out of place.

Oh, and Kenny kissed me goodbye (on the cheek). *swoon*

I can sleep a happy man. :D

Overall a decent time, as I didn't like the music very much :D Too much trance in my pants...

I enjoyed Otis & Toxic's old skool set of Jungle and the breaks were ok... and Satori at least played some decent Techno and Tech House.

It was fun seeing the usual gang of Tribe freaks...

That is all, enjoy the pics...

Last night was an awesome party for sure, thanks to the boys at THUMP for having me. The memories get progressively more blurry as the night went on, but from what I remember, some quality fun was had! Lots of people I hadn't seen in a cow's age too, it seemed like everyone was out to party.

Special thanks to duncan for the post-last call drinks, that was some smart thinking! And thanks to mingster too for the ride home, you saved me a long and painful ride on the vomit comet.

No thanks go to slippery pete, who is trying to sullen my reputation with blatant lies and allegations.



TRIBE Member
That's what I call a nice laid back evening with friends. Too bad I was tired and sick. But at least I made it!

OTIS: nice to hear you spin! I haven't listened to some good ol' jungle in a long time. And your stuff was just what I had been missing.
Other impressive sets: Twitch, AT-AT.

Vinder: can I give you a towel-show?
Evan: Sorry bout the crazy reindeer, LOTR, Santa Claus talk. It all made sense last night! *shrug*

Nice to see everyone! :)

Man, it was HOT! The whole thing - HOT!! Everything - HOT!!!

It was a long and entertaining night. Only a few minutes of respite between all kinds of memorable moments, or rather differently coloured snapshots of that grand feeling that is only possible when shit just comes together on its own. Knowing 90% of the people inside the place helps too, and so does having my best boy back for a bit, just knowing he's there and as happy to be there as I was.

Rob and Ian and Matt did an excellent job on hooking everything up. Maybe I'm getting old, but throwing more intimate jams like this one is most definitely where it's at for me. Nothing beats the feeling of a wickeed house party when you know you don't have to clean up afterwards. We even had a pillow fight downstairs!!!:D

Much respect to everyone that made it down (the whole lot of yous, but Melopants especially 'cause she was sick, hehe), to our girls for the help with the set up and spreading their infectious smiles around, all the DJs that volunteered their time and kicked ass, and my trusted Heiney towel for taking care of my perspiration problem.;)

That mad oldschool session downstairs courtesy of Toxic and Otis, and my partner in crime - comrade Twitchinski - deserve a special mention, but nothing could possibly beat having The Rapist back, if only for an hour - the floor response said it all! And my neck's hurting from headbanging, a lot!

Thank you Me-How for coming down, and for my newest Blade Runner remix, and (*drumroll*) a little hardcover book entitled DA GOSPEL ACCORDING TO ALI G.!!!!! 4eel...:cool:

What an excellent night it was! And more to come, no doubt...

Fun, Fun, Funnnn! :)

Unfortunately for myself, i dont get to go to many trance events, and when i do...i make sure i try to have as much fun as i can!..The good thing was that this time around, the fun was brought to me by the THUMPEE's in attendance who were all smiling and grooving the return of the one and only rapist. :) Good seeing you back buddy, it had been far too long!@

I pretty much like most of the sets i heard, OTIS my man you rocked the show in the dungeon, especially with that nifty little "In The Air" piece at the end...sweet stuff. Pete and Mr. Therapy were at their bone jarring best (as per usual) with nice driving beats. Voytek my man, as always, you rocked the show with the stuff that i love...mmmm Floyd...and i only got to hear bits and pieces of the rest of the dj's, but when i did listen, they sounded downright sweet...

Thanks to everyone who made my night last night, and to those I had the pleasure of meeting for the first time!

All in all...a great night, with great friends, and a GOOD PARTY...looking foward to my next Thumpin'. :)

holy tribefest

i honestly was NOT in the mood for a party after a really long and not so great day-- but damn am i glad i dragged my ass down to the lab. congrats to the THUMP boys for a kickass second event-- i know matt was just beside himself all night with all the people that showed.

Despite the fact that it was stupid hot (upstairs) or ridiculously smokey (downstairs) i still danced my ass off. OTIS vs. TOXIC was a treat for me, esp. since it was my first time seeing Rob spin jungle. hey, news flash, i like jungle. Caught the end of Pete's set (thanx for dropping that weirdo got2bfunky track, i haven't heard it in a while) and all of Therapist's, to which i say THANK YOU-- anyone who opens with "Groove is in the Heart" is a winner. mike, you win. :) Satori as per usual, was amazing. And it had to be good if i was still dancing at 3 after the day i had.

and of course, the TBK love-in -- fun times, nice to see everyone, blah blah blah, what was the deal with the people making out?

(oh...if anyone found my toque, please PLEASE let me know... it's a black pilot toque with a band of white and grey snowflake-type design on it.)

I got a massive hangover, but not the alkytype one... last night came and went as if it was a dream, and it was the most beatiful of dreams, the dream that surpassed any of my hopes and have annihilated any uncertainties I had about coming back to Toronto. It was a dream filled with many lovely people in smiles, enjoying the company of each other, sharing hugs, kisses. good words, dancing madly, messing about, pillow fighting, just having an awesome time. From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU ALL FOR BEING THERE and making last night absolutely incredible.

To Ian, Rob and Matt - I dont know where to start thanking you for making it happen, like I said last night, you have made me one happy pup! You have organised a wonderful party and you have placed so many good, good friends together in one place - believe me - not many things compare with that!

Thanx to all the DJs who provided a high quality expereince for all of us, congrats to Endless on his proper Toronto debut. Well done! I'm happy that I was there to witness it! Happy B-day Jamie!

Thanx to all the friends who have made the evening this memorable. I wish last night was tonight but hey, there is still quite some time left before the ocean will seperate us once again. Let's make it count!

Luv Ya! M.

What a great night!!
Everywhere I looked was friendly faces. Everyone seemed so happy to be there and in the mood to party. The Labrynthe lounge was packed with great people and great music all night.

Mike!!! It was SO GOOD to hear you spin again, I missed that hard trance sound that you've perfected for so long, it was great to have you back for a night. :D
