I'm in love with the first verse of Gage's melanin, there's no way I could transcribe it but it ends in BUMPER TI BUMPER and I don't even like Gage usually. I love all the versions actually, absolutely magical riddim.
Most of the crowd must have been lads and lasses who had taken their pingers in the queue, nervously asking strangers about where to go to find the best techno in london. We came in and it was crowded as fuck.

Then, Gavsborg and Shanique Marie entered the stage on the other side of the dancefloor.
The venue lit up with warm, bright coloured lights, causing peaking lads retinal damage.

Apart from the group of 10 or 15 shades-wearing highest attendees from the west part of England next to the stage who were howling and cheering without paying much attention to what is playing and in what rhythm, minds and bodies of most were simply too shocked to respond in any way at all.
No colder behaviour than standing in the middle of the dancefloor, sipping your 330ml heineken you have purchased for eight quid, high as fuck, not being able to emit a single utterance.

A tired staff member passes by you, his flashlight sliding over your hilfiger skinnies and your best shoes.
