Mad Racket : Even More

I’m very happy that Mad Racket have returned after an 8 months absence, and back again at the very suitable Marrickville Bowling & Recreation Club, who look like they have sorted out their $ issues, and are back in action. Great to be back under the copper ceiling again.

I can’t believe it’s been almost 10 years since I went to the first Mad Racket in Bondi Junction!

So, Saturday night… it was both a fun and kind of a weird night.

Some music I liked, some I didn’t, which is a typical night at a Mad Racket party for me. I respect the wide range of sounds/styles played, changing almost every track.

For this party the Mad Racket crew tried out a Funktion-One sound system. The sound was great, very loud, very bass heavy, although you missed out on the top end (drowned out by bass) unless you were directly in front of one of the 4 speaker stacks at the corners of the dance-floor.

It was a different sound to the usual ‘bowl-o-sonic’ system they have been using regularly. Perhaps not as warm sounding?

Track IDing… Some tracks heard spun that I remember/knew, from Simon, Ken and Jimmi… I didn’t see/hear Andy behind the decks, did he play earlier?

Deetron – Let’s Get Over It (Featuring Justin Chapman) (Henrik Schwarz Remix)
Marek Hemmann – Junoka (Thanks for the ID Jimmi)
DJ Koze – I Want To Sleep
Theo Parrish – Falling Up (Carl Craig Remix)
Mathias Tanzmann – Crazy Circus (Guido Schneider Remix)
Michal Ho – Quitior
Todd Terje – Eurodans
Jamie Lloyd – May I? (Quarion Remix)
Late Nite Tuff Guy (DJ HMC) – I Get Deep
Morgan Geist – Detroit
Kelley Polar – Entropy Reigns (Pearson & Usher Closed System Instrumental)
Paul Johnson – Feel My M.F. Bass
Metro Area – Caught Up
Henrik Schwarz & Amampondo – I Exist Because Of You (Dixon Stripped Down Version)
Steve Poindexter – Work That Mutha Fucker
Tribe – Livin’ In A New Day (Carl Craig/C2 Remix)

There were a few Chicago house classics played as well, I’m sure I heard some Farley Jackmaster Funk.

Lots of other house, deep-house, tech-house, oldschool jackin’ techno, and nu-disco/disco stuff got played as well. Tracks I didn’t know and/or I’m not so into. Tad enjoyed a lot of the nu-disco stuff, want to add some other track IDs Tad?
