Last night was the first night ever for PvD to spin using Final Scratch rather
than vinyl. There were one or two instances where I thought it didn't work properly,
but that's hard to tell. Anyway, apparently he was surprised (and pleased) that
the computer didn't crash during his set. While I have a - maybe old fashioned
- preference for DJs spinning with vinyl, this is probably here to stay.
Otherwise, there was a very clear and marked distinction between the first
2 hours and the rest of the 4.5 hour set. The first part was, well, I dunno
how to describe it, very different from anything I have really heard form him.
Totally different than last week's Vandit night. It kinda lacked energy IMHO.
It certainly wasn't house, not prog, not hard trance, some kind of trance I
guess, but without that uplifting part, in fact I am tempted to say it was a
bit "dull", again IMHO. Hmmmm.
Anyway, then after 2 hours, all of a sudden the music changed completely and
turned into the onslaught of energy we know from Paul. Excellent, lots of new
stuff, some classics, including BBE-Seven Days and one Week, PvD-Another Way
and Emmanuel Top-Turkish Bazaar
The location was just awesome, a former small church annexed to a hospital-turned-hotel.
Almost Limelight feeling in Amsterdam . Great vibe, too! Apparently, the club
has been up and coming recently, booking top name DJs like Dave Seaman, Sander
Kleinenberg and, unbelievably, Deep Dish (I am so upset I missed that).
