there's a friend of mine from partisan who lurks these bords so yes i know.
dont think so, islington mill doesnt really have events anymore i dont think, which is a shame as it was ace, seemed like bohemian grove went with it. was at that keith worthy one as well as traxx and a few others and they were there best thing going at the time!
patty you seem to be stuck in the mid 90s about this stuff - the underground doesn't exist, it never has!
Its a fair cop guv. I totally am. But I also know there was a time even post millenium when fabric was actually good. Plastic People was great. Corsica. The end. And on and on. Not gonna get into the semantics of the word underground as I think we may have covered that before. But yeah I'm stuck in the past which is funny cos I never went clubbing proper until 2000 when I moved to Birmingham and I was raving to techstep, jump up etc lol. I didn't know any better!
your losing me a bit here droid, your argument a few pages back was that house/techno is all well and good but nothing new has happened for 30 years, but now roots reggae is the avant garde?
not that it isnt all the other things you say
i hear more diversity in house/techno broadly defined over the past 30+ years than in roots/dub/dancehall
i suppose its all to do with our ears and what theyre attuned to, theres plenty of people who'd go to a reggae dance and think it was the same track on loop and others who go to a psytrance party and be in awe of all the wonderful diversity on offer :S
was it the one that inspired this?
'The DJ’s predictably-eclectic set was met with disdain by “a contingent of beaked-up kids couldn’t handle his cosmicness,” who proceeded to use their cell phones to show him messages reading “you are the worst DJ ever.” '
i was at that one and he turned off the music to tell em to fuck off irrc, id never heard him play before so it didnt seem that out of place amongst playing tunes backwards for ages and intentional mix clangs and only found out what had been going on with the phone messages afterwards
