Music?

Yeah, I’ve been neglecting my music side of late… I should give the gaming a rest… But I’m enjoying it too much.

I’ve been out to quite a few parties over the last couple of months though, here’s some of the ‘names’ I’ve seen/heard play and some thoughts…

Ame – Mad:Classic:Fuss party at the Metro. Frank (1/2 of Ame) played quite a lot tougher and darker than I was expecting. Some great tracks. I wasn’t so into the house/vocal stuff he played. No “Rej” *sad*.

Justin Martin – Also at the Mad:Classic:Fuss party at the Metro. Some great tracks, some not so great tracks. I was pretty dissapointed in the sound quality at the Metro that night.

Matthias Tanzmann – Cool sounds, knew many. Free beer and pretzels whilst squished into the Goethe-Institut Australien as part of the German Arts Festival – Sydney, a fun couple of hours.

Stephan Bodzin – InTheMix BBQ at Slip Inn Sand Bar. Loved his dark, deep, minimal, techno sounds, DJ set.

M.A.N.D.Y – Fuzzy Killer party at The Gaelic Club>. I found these guys a bit too ‘all over the place’ musically to enjoy. Mark Murphy’s warm up set was great.

Dixon – Minimal Fuss 1st Birthday at Oxford Art Factory. Great new venue, needs more air-conditioning though! Dixon’s t-shirt said it all… “House, House, House And More F**king House”. Liked Phil, and Matt’s sounds in the little room.

Ewan Pearson – Also at the Minimal Fuss 1st Birthday at Oxford Art Factory. Only heard his first 30 minutes, didn’t really like what I heard.

Vince Watson [Live] – HaHa Industries Sub Tub (Sydney Harbour cruise aboard The Lady Rose). A fun few hours on the harbour, at night, during heavy rains and thunderstorms. After years of listening to deep minimal techno Vince’s epic, melodic techno (live set) sounded like progressive/trance. A very wet night being silly with friends. Great sounds from the locals.

Looking forward to… Ben Klock, Dusty Kid [live], Extrawelt [live], Adam Beyer & Joel Mull, Andrew Weatherall, Moodymann, and John Tejada [live] all coming up…
