After that, though, we definitely got harassed maybe once every 15 minutes, while we were in the main room.

Crowd was definitely the worst part


You should have asked where Molly was and asked him to point her out to you on the dancefloor.

*edit: nvm

Nah, it's the tourist factor. Tourists have lots of money, no contacts and want to have fun so they're much more likely pick up inside the club (or get ripped off trying, at least). What really surprised me about Berlin is there was almost none of that, apart from the taxi rank outside Berghain.

I painted my skin red, dyed my hair black, donned some plastic horns and a tail and went out on Halloween dressed as a devil. I was in Charlotte NC where one of my friends works as a lighting and effects guy. It was typical pop edm but the crowd was pretty awesome, as uninhibited haloweeners tend to be. I don't remember who was performing, I was quite drunk.

Good to see that this thread has had a good reponse so far, catching up with some posts..

3 plus hours of that is just too much for me these days but i enjoyed it as much as i could


Heh, funny that we both saw him on the same weekend in different places. I don't think he played all that hard at Berghain, at least compared to ACR and Kr!z.

Anyway, Virginia eventually came on and impressed us all. Such a humble person. I went up to her mid-set, proclaiming "this is the real Panorama bar sound!" to which she smiled. She played for 3 hours a very tight set that left a lasting impression. Eventually my friend came back on but just could not measure up, unfortunately.


How can you tell her that "this is the real Panorama bar sound!" if you've never even been there? But yeah, Virginia is lovely. Did she use the mic at all? I've had some great moments with her using the mic. I remember at NYE, she was hyping people up the whole time and then she sang the vocals of Bicep's "Visions of Love" herself and people went nuts. Also a few months ago in the garden on Steffi's birthday she was totally drunk and yelling random shit in the mic while they played Madonna. Good times.

There are some clubs with "in house dealers" here (Golden Gate...) but yeah, for the most part it's not really common. Not that finding a dealer is hard if you just walk around Warschauer Str. at night ... Even at Berghain though, people inside tend to be kind of discrete about their drug use, even though there literally is next to zero security inside and the staff doesn't give a shit about anything.

I need to amend my last review, because I totally forgot that Ralph Lawson opened his set with LFO – LFO, a nice tribute to Mark Bell even if the Wire soundsystem couldn’t replicate the seismic sub-bass.

Anyway... Andrew Weatherall and Sean Johnston at Back To Basics. About a year ago I saw Weatherall play a classic six hour set at Basics in a tiny backroom, along with a couple of TAs (Chris, Jon). That night was absolutely legendary, with Weatherall building up from about 100bpm slo-mo all the way to about 125bpm cosmic disco shit (the full set is on Soundcloud). On Saturday they were headlining the night with another six hour set, coming on at 12, and starting a lot more up-tempo than Weatherall had last time. The first four hours were absolutely sublime, just oddball tuneful genre-busting dance music with plenty of unashamed songs, and it felt like it was going to be even better than last time. Then things got... not bad, exactly, but certainly a bit monotonous, as they delved into about 90 minutes of rat-a-tat techno with some really annoying protracted breakdowns that didn’t really follow on from the first half of the set. For the last half hour they started to space it out and then brought it back to a peak with a couple of massive bombs to close on.

Overall, 3/4ths of the set was absolutely brilliant, but the remaining quarter was just a bit uninspired and took the gloss off the brilliance. I’ve heard a few of their Love From Outer Space sets in the past and the flow has never been quite as good as when Weatherall is solo. I suppose that’s an inevitable part of playing B2B, although they weren’t playing a straight “one tune each” arrangement and neither was it “an hour on, an hour off”. Weatherall mixed the first 8 tunes or so and then Johnston got on the decks for a while, and there didn’t really seem to be much pattern to it. No complaints about the crowd. They’re always brilliant at Basics, cheering when the bass kicks back in and going nuts during the breakdowns, friendly and enthusiastic from start to finish. The venue was also pretty cool – the Belgrave Music Hall is more of a gig venue than a club, but they decked out the stage to transform it into a DJ booth with an awesome wall of trippy visuals from floor to ceiling.

Not sure what my next night out will be. The next nailed-on event is J00F playing an all-night set down in Brighton at the start of December. I might try and have a break until then – feeling very spaced out at work today.

Woony she did sing quite a bit that night, yes.

With regards to my comment, well, what she played was pretty much what I envisioned the sound of Panoramabar to be like. In other words, she had validated my theory, lol.

Without having heard her set, I can't confirm, but it was probably pretty close Although I will say that even though the 'typical' sound is obviously the most common one, Panoramabar can be quite diverse in terms of what's playing, depending on the day and DJ you might hear a really discoid set, or something with a lot of techno or electro, or something really detroity, or very chicago heavy, acid heavy, or very soulful US garage style, or bouncing Uk garage style etc. .. I think the fact that you can get away with playing straight up dub techno like Luke Hess or just straight up disco DJ Harvey style shows that.

I can confirm the views about Fabric stated so far - great soundsystem, top notch djs, horrible crowd and massive drug use. coked up and pilled out tourists everywhere you could see

going to Corsica Studios for the first time this Friday, should be good. heavy line up

It's a shame that they played some uninspired music, but I guess if the crowd was loving it they were just eating off the crowd's response. I can't see Weatherall actually liking that stuff (you never know though!), but when you're playing with somebody else you have to bend a bit. I mean I've heard his B2B set with Ivan Smagghe, and they've done the same thing. There's a good 45 minutes to an hour of the set I have to fast-forward because it's incredibly boring tech-house.

Awesome to hear that 3/4 of the night was great music though It's a shame no one brings him to Toronto or Montreal yearly, but I guess they'd rather book DJs that 100% ensure attendance, considering international plane tickets between our two countries are down-right ludicrous.
