Holy mamma.

MANDY delivered solid beats, crowd-pleaser Mylo - Under Pressure springs to mind. Hearing that track an awful lot recently, it's edging close to 'overplayed' territory. Almost! But not quite yet; and not quite as near as Alter Ego - Rocker & Deep Dish - Flashdance.

Anyway - Matthew Jonson - live set, really stretching the Fabric sound system to deliver some freakishly deep bass sounds and sonic / trademark subsonic vibrations. Tyrant - not as "hard" seemingly, after Matthew Jonson, but trademark relentless driving beats with some wacked-out acid and tribal top lines. I don't think I stopped dancing for more than about 20 or 30 minutes in total on Saturday night. "This - this - this is the good shit" as i was heard to mumble to my friends more than once last night. Probably about the music

Having double-Fabric'd (Friday and Saturday) - I have to say, Friday was merely 'ok', Saturday was excellent. That may be partly a reflection of my taste in music and/or state of sobriety, and the fact that it seemed like ivan smagghe was only just starting to pull the good records out of his box when I had to take my friend home at 4.20. Nevertheless, Friday gets a "6.5/10" vs. Saturday's "8/10". The crowd was really up for it on Saturday (much more so than on Friday i felt), great vibe of anticipation, and it really kicked off during Matthew Jonson's set. This guy has talent!

Lee & Craig were on point again ... so much so that although we made a brief excursion to Room 1 to check out Agoria (who I was expecting great things from having seen him perform at Sonar) in Room 2, group consensus had us moving back to the tyranny of Room 1 within 10 minutes. It wasn't that Agoria was bad; very far from it! Just that somehow those Tyrant sets are addictive, they have a way of just sucking you in, whirling you round and then spitting you out into the sunshine at 8am - dazed, confused, but with a huge smile on your face ...
