05.26.2005: DJ Pan @ Elements

This is what I call a proper night. We got there early to catch all the opening set action, and Lenore managed to again impress us with her skill. Her set was a great prelude to what was to follow; as the space filled up, the beats became madder and madder. The transition from Lenore to Pan was somehow uneventful, but what followed will be etched in my memory forever. His set was ill, sick, contageous, pucking, feverish DNB goodness. Packing an amazing variety of tracks, from mellow to dark, from housy to break-beaty, the set was an exercise in dance floor control, and the mastery of the DJ shone through and through.

If you missed this night; well, what can I say; you missed a lot. Don't repeat your mistake the next time this fine DJ rolls into town.

Good evenening; Pavel here, representing the QCW crew. Let me tell you about the last Thursday at Elements, alghough I have to admit, I have to strain pretty hard to recall anything special. We had two local DJs on decks and an opening set by our own DJ Crook. In hindsight, Crook's set was the highlight of the night, and it was all downhill from there, with a few bright spots here and there. Here are some pictures of that uneventful night.

Evol Intent and C4C @ Bill's Bar

Bill's Bar is the new happening DnB venue attracting some of the world's biggest names. So how did this particular night turn out? Good, but less than spectacular. We arrived there on the early side, and for the longest time the place was empty. I was depriving myself of DnB all week, so I had no trouble getting into it and starting to dance to the opening set. Being the only one on the dance floor was a bit annerving, but someone had to do it.

The night seemed to last forever. Evol Intent took over the decks at a tad past midnight, and opened his set with a promising selection of tunes that got the whole room jumping. Unfortunately very quickly he settled into a drone that became very tiring and practically put me to sleep.

C4C stepped up at 1 or so. Again, after a promising opening, the tracks lost their variety and spunk. He turned it back up for the last ten minutes of the night, but otherwise, his set was pure boredom.

In all honesty, my favorite parts of the night were: the opening set, the MC, the peeps. What spoiled the night for me was: the headliners with their lame sets and the popping subwoofers (guys, you need to get a compressor or something before you blow them).

Photos coming up.
