the first weekend..

tour day 1 :
i arrived in Brisbane on fri morning, the flight wasnt too bad, with a stop in singapore. i slept all day in the hotel and then have dinner with my host Lizzie, v nice food, lamb mmm. The club is called Empire, it was a lil quiet as there was a big trance night going on next door, which all the kids were at, but the sound system is fuking killer in this venue, the speakers shook hard with the bass, one boy was hugging one!!! Shouts to George and gang!!

OK THIS IS EXACTLY WHY LONDON NOW SUCKS...

I feel we r witnessing the end of clubbing/raving as we know it. Now 5 major clubs have closed down, Canvas, Turnmills, The Key, The Cross and now The End in jan. Plus new laws of sound restriction r coming in which means inspectors are monitoring the volume levels in clubs , they will be fined if they go above a certain level. The level which is simply NOT loud enough. Last night i played Energy Flash by Joey Beltram, a homage to the era, but to be honest it felt sad, and pretentious in a grotty warehouse with people constantly asking to turn it up, what are people paying for??? - To lose it on the dancefloor? or to be able to chit chat next to a speaker? New York's club scene has died on its ass, with clubs like Paradise Garage, where new genres of dance music were literally being invented, are a thing of the past and now its London's turn. The government dont want raving at all any more!!!! We need to have a good old think about how we can take it forward to deliver music to the dance lovers in the best possible way, there has to be some light , it cant go on like this....watch this space!!!

AMSTERDAM

on Fri i hopped on a plane for 40mins and landed in Amsterdam, always amazes me how quick it is to get there, takes longer to get to the airport!. I played for Joost Van Bellen's night Rauw, in a cool club called Milky Way. Joost is the daddy in Holland, a true pioneer who champions alternative and up and coming artists. Big Up Joost!
I managed to catch Ezra Bang and The Hot Machine, who i loved, wicked punk/public enemy/prince vibes, check em out.
