Watching this clip gives me instant, pleasant chills down my spine. That’s got to do with the memory of actually being there, but also with the mindblowing epicness of the track they start to play from 1:00 onwards. Three minutes in, it becomes something alien. It’s beyond words, really.
The Netherland’s got a lot to offer in terms of techno music, in all kinds of varieties, but stuff like this… I’ve never heard a dj play that over here. For that, you have to go east.
If anyone knows the track id to this, please let me know.
After a highly satisfying, well-organized festival with a perfect atmosphere, and a week of forced labour after that, we’re back to take up blogging again. Sorry for the inactivity.
Melt!, unfortunately already a week ago with the next edition still 51 weeks away, was fantastic, either way. We won’t bother anyone with a review, but suffice it to say that through discipline and an unprecedented tapping of energy sources, we actually managed to see quite a lot of artists of the list posted below.
Combine that with perfect weather, a decent camping spot and the magical atmosphere of standing with dedicated party people at 6am under a rising sun listening to the spacy, groovy beats of a dj performing underneath majestic digging machines, and you get the picture. Seriously folks: of all parties and festivals we know of, nothing beats the Big Wheel stage or the beach stage in the morning.
To prove that, here’s a couple of videos capturing that wonderful atmosphere. It’s perfection. Then it’s off to blogging again.
