Oh my gosh, what a wicked night.
We got to Bletchley for about seven. As we walking up to the rave
the queue was massive they hadn't let anyone in the snake but
the queue was huge !! We had to wait ages, the queue really didn't
start moving till bout 8:20 got in for about 9:30 didn't really
mind coz I think Lisa pinup was playing not too keen on her style
but I hate queuing and you just hear the baselines and think to
yourself let me in!!!
Now when I finally got into the rollers Billy bunter was on with
Charlie B I couldn't get into it what so ever. I wandered off
to the back off the rollers too see if mistress mo was on but
she wasn't it was Sarge playing hard house and I mean Hard and
Ribbz was MC'in I personally don't like hard house but for some
strange reason I was bouncing to this I quite enjoyed the hard
house. For only 30mins though then it got a little boring.
I went off to the oldskool room but there was no DJ on, me and
rapid thought umm lets have a go on the decks¦ maybe not!
I think it was J.J.Frost on downstairs with Shabba, some wicked
tunes was being played I think the bad company remix of champion
sound was played I was giving it large to this.
Went back upstairs and DJ Kaos was on, bout time with mc Ethos.
Now Kaos's set this was amazing he was playing mainly 95-97 happy
which was my fave year but never went to the raves but the tunes
were just excellent. He played one of my fave Seb's Rainbow island
which is wicked " I wana fly chasin' rainbows in the sky"
I just love my vocally happy hardcore I know people hate me for
liking me cheese but come on its just so uplifting!!
Straight after Kaos it was Hixxy with the Charlie B the Tottenham
boy's started off with the beck remix I'm a loser. Charlie b was
wicked, he was just taking the piss out of any gooners (arsenal)
out there!! Hixxy was wicked playing some classics again the old
95-96 little 97 happy. See this is why I like the oldskool coz
I was brought up on Bonkers series and couldn't go to raves coz
I was young now I'm just re-living my youth!! After Hixxy there
was no DJ available Charlie b was asking any DJ's in the house
but talk of the devil no-other than Vibes turned up though i didn't
stay too long.
Back to the rollers think it was energy on he was playing' some
stompy hardcore/hard house style just caught the end of his set.
Demand was on didn't really take it in much but just had to dance
Hixxy was up playing his raver baby stuff I like it coz it nice
and vocally but people would disagree but who cares its still
Storm was just wicked as ever the man is
the dogs I mean his rhymes just get the crowd going and the mouth
scratching is just so amazing.
Well Mark EG was on you know what this guy is just too much for
me the man has lost the plot but everyone was loving it all the
ravers were just chanting his name, I thought its time for me
too have a gander outside.
Well the merchandise stall had some wicked bargains next time
I'm going to come up with good wad of cash with me or maybe Slammin
start taking credit cards umm maybe not!! They had the absolute
oldskool classics for 6 quid half the price than hmv and also
the united dance series for a fiver now that's a bargain. The
bungee jump looked phat man all the nuters were queuing up for
it. I was like you lot must be mad!!
Went into the oldskool room coz the rollers was still banging
techno went and seen DJ Phantasy never seen him live but his jungle
selection was classic. Well I caught the last 10 mins of Mark
EG but I seen Dougal getting ready. Dougal and Storm that's a
combo I'll like too see more often he played my all time tune
U SURE DO the kick your legs in the air mix!!! Now that is what
I was doing I was just amazed, I love that tune and to hear it
in the rollers was something amazing!!
He played a more trancy hard-housy hardcore
set really everything mixed up in one set. He played a new tune
at the end couldn't get clue what it was called but his missus
somehow knew all the words maybe she done the vocals but I loved
the tune. I think the crowd loved the coz I know mc Ribbz did
he was dancing all over the stage also for some strange reason
will had brought a panda with him to the rave!! Maybe not a real
one but a mask weirdo!!
Right " Welcome to London's no1 Everson Allen and Lipmaster
mark the RATPACK" now that's a classic line cuz you know
when they come to the rave they just tear it up. They played the
remix of the for an angel mix really bassy but phat had the classics
including searchin for my rizla mixed up with nu skool breaks
and finished off with captain off the ship!! No clipper gutted
I've not heard that live since decadance many many months ago
but I cant complain maybe they'll play it at flashback in two
weeks!! Two hours before the end and Scott brown was on I think
its' time to get my coat also I wanted to buy some c.d.'s before
I go. The cloakroom wasn't really that long compared to Slammin
in November just had to wait bout 5-10mins not that long really.
Scott brown was still on so I thought I'll check out the oldskool
room just before the night was over and too my surprise my fave
jungle/oldskool DJ Mr. Nicky Blackmarket played some wicked selection
tune like the champion sound renegade plus many other his style
of quick mixing just pulls it off every time.
Last hour was approaching and you know whose going to be stepping
on the wheels of steel the one and only SY with the lyrical genius
Storm! I cant remember the first tune he started off with but
he played I can't stop another classic happy track also I need
your loving he slipped shooting star in the mix the crowd were
loving it large I don't know how Storm does the mouth scratching
but how wicked is it?
Well amazing Slammin have pulled it off haven't they??? Didn't
have any problems with security really just the fact they opened
up late cant really complain. The production was mediocre I have
seen better I liked the stage in the sanctuary having the DJ on
his own stage and the mc with his little platform. The rollers
was quite spectacular with the video screens left and right of
the stage. I liked the dancers on the raised platform that night
with their water pistols and they're sexy dancing thought I was
in a strip joint for a moment!! They had some amazing characters
like the mirror dancer yes a mirror dancer now to explain this
is basically a bloke in this costume covered in mirrors with torches
for hands and the lights that bounced off him were quite trippy.
There was also this bloke looked like a greyed out policeman doing
stuff like those street blokes do you know the pulling the everlasting
piece of rope thing. That's the kind of stuff I like the little
characters and dancers makes the night a little bit special.
Well all I have to say is job well done Slammin just sort out
the queuing well really it's the sanctuary problem but I have
too say I enjoyed my self once again.
I will be seeing most of the midlands crew at flashback so see
you in two weeks.
