D.A.V.E. The Drummer at Blak on Saturday night was right simply INCREDIBLE!!
Henry is the *fucking* man!! I could watch him work for hours on end, even if I wasnt hearing any sound myself, but was just paying attention to him. lol
So incredible... true professional!
He takes his shit so seriously, I love his demeanour when mixing.
Around 2, one (or two) of the front speakers were dying, and the guy sent in to fix them would keep trying to do something aroudn the mixer cables that Henry simply wasnt having any of. LOL... watching him set the guy straight more than once was highly entertaining!!
Dont fuck w/ the Drummer!
Got a have a quick chat with him post set. Thats always a pleasure. He stayed out in the crowd to chill w/ his gf or wife (I'm assuming... a hot redhead anyways who I think I recall seeing him last time too at the Big Bop back in March 06) and listen to the live PA techno guys who were on after him.
And though I was worried since apparenlty he was co-booked as "Henry Cullen" too (his real name, meaning he would likley also be spinning some minimal or electro, since that is who he's booked as if he is to play a minimal or electro set), I had NOTHING to fear.
He dropped a few minimal tracks and a hew tracks w/ some bleepy blooppy minimal bits, but on the whole it was a massive hard bigtime set!! So banging, it was EXACTLY what i wanted to hear from D.A.V.E.!!! 2nd or 3rd favourite set of the year so far.
Song of the night?
Mark End (??) - 4th Dimension (D.A.V.E. The Drummer Remix)
^^^ SO GOOOOOOOOD!! So far still my favourite track of 2007. I went ape shit when I hear it coming in!!
AND... annnnnnnnnnnnd..... ONE NIGHT IN HACKNEY (and not the new 06/07 remix of it that just isnt the same, IMO)... the proper original version!!!!
GOD it was fucknig HAUNTING hearing that in the little space! The crowd ATE IT UP... the entire place was screaming, shoutting out the words....
IT WAS PURE TECHNO INTENSITY!
And when the "15 CANS OF STELLA" party came up... fucking Henry held up his bottle of Canadian out to the crowd and just shrugged his shoulders! LOL!
Classic. I'll never forget this performance.
TECHNO IS THE BEST NOISE ON EARTH.
