The Que Club
Saturday 9th February 2002
Well its been along time since I've being to a Slammin vinyl event
since September I was looking forward to this night as I was in
my hometown were my rules apply!!!!
Well we got to the Que club for 8:45 this queue was getting massive
we were all the way near the restaurant I don't think people were
happy with the noise the ravers were making!!! The doors opened
on time and the Queue was moving smoothly and swiftly.
Well straight to the main arena this was good!!! Better compared
to the last time I visited the Que club in Jan!!!
The visual and audio assault on the ravers was unbelievable with
the large projection screen. Which I like with dj times and also
they had camera set on the decks so you could see the dj mixing
(shame hype or Sy weren't in there could see some scratching and
trigger fingers!!!) the lighting was amazing and the lasers were
wicked, lots of inflatable in the ceiling.
Up first was DJ SS basically started were I left off from the
true playaz nite, the main room started they didn't open the side
rooms till 10ish. I went and placed my coat in the cloakroom,
I went into the hard dance room and Billy bunter was up first
playing hard house I didn't stay in there much but the production
in this room was good plenty of lighting loud system. I returned
in the main arena and DJ SS was supposedly booked for a two set
but due to his commitments in Leicester for his formation night
this was cut short and last minute replacement to cover, till
the next dj was flashbacks mistress mo. She hadn't played any
these records ever but made a good job she got into the groove
after two/three tunes some kid thought it was rap. There were
no mc's this moment I went into the hardcore room and Billy bunter
was finishing up jimmy j was in the oldskool playing u guessed
it six days!!!!
Dougal was in the hardcore room and his set was unbelievable with
wizzkid on the mic he was just tearing it up. Dougal was playing
some of the raver baby stuff including wanting to get high. The
hardcore room was getting too hot for me so Back in the main arena
and Andy c was finishing up with shabba d on the mic just blaring
it up. The only problem with shabba he chats too fast.
Andy C was similar to what he played in Jan but still a good set.
Mampi swift was on the decks he played he one and also a good
tune planet dust local mc was on the mic fila. I returned in the
hardcore room and Dougal was still on finishing his set and storm
Brisk was up next he was playing a bit gabba techno which is really
not my cup of tea, I checked the oldskool room and rat pack were
finish and hixxy was starting his set was good similar to that
of bonkers 3 which was good but the problem is these rooms get
hot too quickly. Into the main room and DJ Kenny ken was on the
decks i spotted my fave mc Lenni he was there but not mcin just
raving. Kenny ken was good played some wicked new stuff I don't
the names of these but I spotted the remix of dark soldier the
crowd went mad for it I spotted wizzkid brocking out at the front
you rude bwoy!!!!!
The crowd tonight was really not from the midlands more out of
towners faces I see mainly back in Milton Keynes not in Birmingham
but it was good and the vibe in all three arena was good all night.
After Kenny ken was dj rap which I caught the first 10 mins she
played the messiah also the champion sound bc remix as well kept
the crowd alive MC MC turned up shame though coz the mic was not
on properly so you couldn't hear him but he was loving it jumping
on the stage I think mc's love mcin in the main arena of the Que
Into the oldskool room was Donavon bad bwoy smith he played a
good oldskool jungle with Lenni on the mic giving enough shouts
for us nice!!!! I popped back into the hardcore room to find my
fave dj doing his last 20 mins HIXXY!! He played some wicked tunes
some really new stuff. I haven't listened to any new hardcore
for a long time and this stuff was eurphic and rushy. Storm was
on the mic giving the ush.net crew enough shouts, hixxy played
a couple tunes which including the vocal talents of mc storm living
in a dream and why oh why. He finished the set with the anti-scoial.
Mistress mo was on next playing hard house, which is really not
Back to the oldskool room and MC MC was mcing and bad boy smith
was still on he played burial, tnt, dark solider and also sing
(time) tune but his set was cut short due to the power going out
for a brief moment. I though I get back to the main room. Well
Rap was still on just finishing her set and MC Dett was on the
mic blaring his usual chats which kept the crowd hyper. Hey the
dude was bouncing like a raver as well I like the vibe he gives
out to the crowd.
Brockie was running late and Donovan bad bwoy smith was on he
played some good tunes but you know when brokcie's on as the crowd
went mad playing the classic brockie anthem warhead with det going
mad and then represent!! This set was awesome!!!!!
Well the last set of the night SY!!! This was a set not be missed
the room was rammed of ravers waiting for there heroes Sy,and
storm are the RAVERS CHAMPIONS!!!! Playing some quality new tunes
and storm well he's got lyrics his vocally scratching with Sy
is just amazing storm was on fire!!! Thanks for the shouts ,with
the room rammed out I left and went to the oldskool room with
the godfather Slipmatt with mc Lenni. Slipmatt played the classics
bomb scare with my vocal remix hehe and the pete bouncer tune
but to be honest the best that I liked was this old house tune
and the crowd went mad I don't know what its called but it was
wicked it had to get the rewind!!! Thanks Lenni.
Well I thought i would catch Nicky blackmarket with Skibadee.
He wasn't mcin which was shame he was there but not mcin with
half the dj's being at one nation tonight I could understand with
them being late but not mcing well
the crowd was on the
stage all the ravers loving it up only caught bout 10 mins of
Nicky B and went to get my coat. I thought i'd go back in the
room with 5mins to go and room was losing its vibe but people
still raving the light came on and it was time to go home I quickly
ran too the hardcore room and Sy was till on playing 5 mins over
which I think the bouncers weren't happy about!!!
Well a good night in generally I couldn't tell who played the
best set there loads of them I was in all 3 arenas and hat shows
you how good the night was.
I'd like to say this was a major improvement on Slammin return
to the Que club compared to the last event back in June!!!
I'd like to say massive shouts and respects to Mistress mo, jimmy,
Lenni, Storm, Sy, Dougal, Hixxy, Andy C, Rap and Whizzkid!!
And of course the ravers!!
Wilson, 4-D, Ed, Chedda, Xlr8, Astro, Marky, Jungle Princess (Charly),
Jess, Wookie, Marcus, Zoe + Collete and all the crews I met but
don't know your names.
