what a friggin' weekend! i was pleasantly surprised by art dept. like, REALLY pleasantly surprised. generally, i'm not much of a fan of the sets i have from them on my laptop, and i found they really played a lot differently than what's in those recorded sets. driss and tone of arc were great also. i really have no criticism to give, which is rare haha! only thing is that i'd really love to see some porta-pottys (spelling?) throughout the site. bathrooms were disgusting and line-ups for the women's was ridiculous. i went in the men's room every time.
dubfire was, well, dubfire! deeper and darker than what he played last year...less house, more techno with proggy undertones...i really liked it; i agree w/ spin...one of the better sets i've heard from him lately. the energy on both days was off the hook. i'll be missing nina this sunday cuz i have to work but i'm really looking forward to lee burridge
great season opening!
great meeting witty, finally!!!
Afterhours is a state of mind, but significantly, it's more a state of 'I don't mind'. A determined continuation, contentment and relief that 'it ain't over yet!' An injection of music into attitude and occasion which creates an emotional wave forth that isolates globally, a ringing harmonic, a signal to a like-minded collective that 'we are only us'.
