clubbing is cancelled in third land. it's expropriating your grandparents mansion, getting a funktion 1 and giving everyone a 10 strip of lsd. and playing the best music for 72 hours. most djs i have seen from every genre, in every scene, have been disappointing whenever i have seen them out.
I had a lot more naivety and recklessness re pills ten years ago. My heyday for clubbing was actually more like 15 years ago.
Also now with phones and the smoking ban j don't think you get the same sense of entering a magic cave. Best states for me were when I'd be walking around with my pupils the size of coal lumps not knowing where anyone was and where I was either.
who cares about all of that shit. if the dj/selector is good no pills are needed. most of them just aren't. biggest con trick.
at least in the acid house/hardcore/hard techno era the music was designed to get even more menacing and deranged on E's. like buzzing in a swarm of cyclones. in that sense there was a consciousness expanding element. today E is the tony blair of psychedelics.
I've been cycling around recently blaring out a spotify playlist called ambient jungle by @craner which, I'm sorry craner, I hope you don't find it very weird that I clicked on your spotify profile when you put @DannyL's top 100 into a playlist, is perfect for banging around town, always sounds good, feels good and cool to play in public, no cringe and good to ride to, it feels like you're in a computer game. Another cyclist pulled up next to me last night to ask what it was he liked it that much, specifically this one, he wanted to Shazam it
