Well what a night all summer I've been doing the oldskool down
flashback and the only happy rave ive been to was Slammin vinyl
at bagley's way back in April.
This was the one rave that I've been waiting for, since may when
this was first heard of after the April Slammin V. Thweres been
hardly any Happy Hardcore raves this year, well hardcore is the
reason I've made the trip to the raving capital they call Milton
Keynes. Tonight was my pilgrimage to the best venue in the UK.
Got the train down and thank god we caught the early train as
the queue was massive, lots of eager ravers getting here early
but they didn't let us in until 10:30 they got to sort this out.
Once inside it was mental went straight into the hardcore room
and gosh I forgot how fast happy hardcore was too much oldskool
for me this year! The production they pulled out tonight, the
lasers the lighting the strobes the list is endless. Think it
was DNA up first couldn't remember along with mc smiley playing
a lot of new material I've obviously not heard for ages.
Went upstairs to get a bit of oldskool and pilgrim was playing
the last five minutes alongside Charlie Bstraight after was NICKY
BLACKMARKET one of my favourite Jungle dj's he started off playing
hardcore stuff like the ecstasy rushing tune which is a tune!
Went back downstairs and mc storm has just arrived gosh he's the
geezer, as soon as he was on stage the crowd was electric just
by his appearance that's what makes him hardcore's number one
Went back upstairs to one the sets I've been waiting for Dougal
& Vibes and what a set can't wait to see vibes at flashback
oh yes! They played all the anthems the room was a little too
hot hotter than millennium Skelter during Slipmatt (brought back
memories). This set should have been in the sanctuary blatantly
man it was phat. All the ravers were going mental the floor was
bouncing I thouht i was going to fall through! Playing a lot of
stuff which the happy ravers have not heard for ages stuff like
party time, heart of gold, kick your legs!!
Billy bunter was on downstairs people were going mental for the
hard house, so mental that I think someone collapse and mc Storm
started screwing, telling the ravers get your self sorted and
I don't blame him!!!!
Had to take a break, we went outside and had a look around the
people were still queuing up heard about people rushing the fences
sounds like they need to sort out the security.
There were queues for the rollers was ridiculous thank god I didn't
come all this way for drum'and'bass as I would have been pissed
off! People must have been mad to do the bungee and I mean mad.
In the chill out there was South Park, people just watching it
whilst taking a break from the craziness inside the sanctuary.
Sy and Storm now this is why I came here tonight to listen to
the Sy and storm mission! People loved this it was phat he played
dread land and the Madonna like a prayer tune that went down really
well. After that it was another look round I saw some merchandise
I wanted so I thought I best get my coat and then buy the vinyl
and c.d.'s I wanted.
Well what a surprise in store I had. This took the PISS, the security
thought they were bigger than the Slammin V tonight, I think coz
the ravers rushed the fences it was time to get their own back!
If this was Skelter I doubt this wouldn't of happened. But I had
to queue a good hour and a half and people were missing their
coaches and lift home coz of the chaos!!
Other than that this night was top for atmosphere and tunes I
don't know if I want to come back for New Years Eve's yet coz
of this fiasco but if the security and the queuing is sorted out
then I'll be getting my ticket! What could be done for New years
eve, well open earlier so you can get your coat in and glow sticks
and then get ready to rave up and get more people inside the cloakroom
to sort it out
Shouts to SY, Storm, Whizzkid, Charlie B, Hixxy, Vibes and Dougal,
Rugby Ravers Birmingham crew and all those other nutters that
made this night wicked Cheers .
See you all at flashback!
