    A-Sides was a little too hard and noisy for my liking, so I spent my time upstairs listening to one of my favorite producers Halo Varga.
    Unfourtunatly (to quote Futronic) He wasnt exactly "pounding it out" so when Meghin came up to tell me Peshay had come on... I welcomed the change.

    Peshay threw down a sweet deep set and I was thoroughly impressed by what I heard.

    Im sorry to have to say this but I can't hold it in.
    Buddy who was on the Mic (i think it was Stryka) learn when to close your mouth.
    Example... when Peshay dropped that Jill Scott white (which I have never heard played out).

    Vocal - They say I'm crazy
    Stryka - (CRAZYYYY! CRAAAAZY!!!!!!!)
    Vocal - The way you got me open baby!
    Stryka - (BABY!!!BABAY!!! IM CRAZAY!!! BABY!!)
    And on.. And on it went..
    Destroying one of my favorite tunes and making me near violent at the same time.

    Then there was the "Oh shit" incedent.

    Stryka - Oh Shit..... Oh Fuck..... Oh Shit... Oh Fuck.... Oh Shit.... Oh Fuck...

    If your going to spew expletives to under 20 people at the end of the night.. Do it at your friends house party... Not while the obvious Peshay fans are trying to listen to his tracks and mixes. Talk about insulting my intelligence.

    Another thing I noticed.
    A fight ensues... And half the dancefloor leaves, another one happens and the basement goes from an original 50 or 60 people... to mabye 20 or 25.
    I see almost 2 fights every friday night down there. It's sad almost.

    Oh well.
    I'm sure Stryka or whoever can be a decent MC but please ease up on the unnesceary cursing and the ridiculous chants.

    ya the fights were dumb i heard they continued outside.. stupidness but what can u do. just hope it calms down..

    over all though i think tdotjungle is doing a great job..

    uhm as for stryka and the oh shit oh fuck peshay thing and all that.. im sure stryka was just excited and having fun he is a quality MC, but im also sure he apreciated ur critism and itll help him much like mysel fout in the future.. its all good tho.. respects to everyone..

    again i had a nice night and saw a lot of people groovin!

    So how many people were there when the room was its' busiest? Did I hear correctly that only 50 or 60 people showed. Isn't Turbo pakced every Friday?

    Haven't been there in a while, let me know.

    Gonna be there for Hype and GQ this Fri. though. Peace.

    uhm it was packed from what i saw their was way more tehn 50 ppl downstairs.. i think that may have been upstairs..
    casue down stairs was packed

    I don't think the basement was packed at all. There was half the amount of people that I usually see in their for a headliner. And it seems that half the crowd always leaves at like 2:30am, so it feels empty after that.
    I think it's embarrassing for a supposed world-class dnb city to have only 30 people in attendance when Peshay was spinning.

    As for the music, Res-q and Stranjah were fantastic. Their set had a great flow and they dropped some nice dubs. I love hearing the local production. I definitely want to hear more from these guys.

    A-Sides set wasn't nearly as good as the one he dropped in December. Boring track selection this time around. Didn't do anything for me at all.
    Peshay's set on the other hand was a breath of fresh air. Smooth, jazzy tracks, and unlike A-Sides, there was actual progression to his set. So sad there was nobody there to see it.
    I would love to see Peshay in a more laidback, loungey, intimate setting. That'd be perfect.

    And I hate to say it as well, but Stryka's Mcing was . I don't want to disrespect him because you can see that he genuinely loves the music and brings a lot of energy...but the man needs to chill once and a while and let a track run. As well, the reloads he called were questionable. The first one he called was on a filler track, and it left a lot of people scratching their heads. Let the people decide when they want to hear a track from the top.

    I'm still shocked at how empty Turbo was. Hopefully this trend doesn't continue and the club can start bumpin' again soon.
    Overall, I had somewhat of a good time, but I was left with a bad taste in my mouth.

    I don't think that's going to happen. Next week is the last night for lifeforce fridays.
    I'm not sure if the new club owner is going to keep the same format for the night or change it, but the current one ain't doing so good.

    Not that I'm a big supporter of Turbo but I do go more often than the rest because of the DnB. But 50 to 60 people for Peshay? What has this world come to!!!
    Peshay and Jill Scott = wow.

    Anyway, I can't say anything because I went to Buddies instead. I do regret it but maybe not, because I didn't have to deal with any fights.

    I've never seen a fight at Turbo. In fact, I've never even experienced shit like that anytime at a club. So I am really surprised when some of you say that it happens every Friday night because people might dress like thugs (cutey junglist boys with the gold chains and shit) but they ain't no thugs. At least, I don't think...

    Anyway, hopefully everyone will hit Hype next Friday? Or not... who knows.

    It's still kinda fun when it's empty though. Really it is.

    The fight wasn't a big deal at all.

    And ~dazed~, I understand that Turbo hasn't been doing well lately and that's why there will be a change of owners. That just sucks. I'm sad to see what's happened to the place. I hope people come next week for the last Lifeforce night.

    after peshay and asides made my top 5 list of best sets of 2000, friday was a HUGE dissapointment.

    set of the night went to stranjah and rez q's b2b set. it was great to hear some of their own stuff being played. i could have done without the mc'ing tho.

    unfortunately, asides came on before peshay and his set was boring, there's absolutely no other way to put it. the tracks he played were redundant, there was absolutely no vibe or energy...even asides himself looked bored.

    peshay started off really well playing more soulful tracks and just as i thawt the night was going to be redeemed, some idiots in front of us started fighting and we made our way for the door.

    it's sad to see what's become of turbo on friday nights. when peshay and asides were last here in december the basement was RAMMED. this time around, it wasn't even close to being half full.

    ok maybe i was wrong the place may not have been rammed.. but thier was way more people then 50 - 60.. perhaps at around 2:30 place cleared out a bit..

    im almost positive they wil be keeping dnb in thier.. i woudnt be suptrised if it gets better..

    the problem isnt packing downstairs.. its packing the upstairs..

    from what i hear.

    is all good tho.

    Aren't they moving the jungle upstairs? Isn't that where Hype is going to be this Friday?

    I REALLY can't imagine the bottom being rammed with house enthusiasts. I know some chi-chi people who go for the house (actually 30 of them) and they all wouldn't even step foot into the basement. They would just go somewhere else like Una Mas. SO I have a problem envisioning it to be packed on the bottom. Hmm...

    Oh well, I love the upstairs so now it's mine, ALL MINE! muahahahahahaha...

    teh jungle from whats been said is going upstairs.. but not for hype least i dont think so.... sometime later..
    as for the house heads.. well if u wanna know icq me..

    Apparently it's gonna be torontojungle.com upstairs, and breaks downstairs starting in September.
    I'm sad, because I loved the house that was played upstairs. Where am I going to see Timmy P now?
  23. air-bag

    air-bag TRIBE Member

    ^^ True.

    I have no idea how are they going to fill up upstairs if even downstairs barely get's 1/2 capacity nowdays...

    Well at least the breakers will have the red room now..

    I expect some heavy talent to touch down there on weekly basis.. o/w t-dot is going to loose mad money...

    I can't see Lifeforce eliminating a weekly house night all together. Perhaps another venue will present itself. [​IMG]

    That blows, I liked having house and jungle under the same roof. I got to indulge both tastes all night.
