Got there early for Deep Mariano. in fact earlier than I meant to, the phone I rented was showing the wrong time
I was really into his music a couple of years ago, and then he seemed to go a bit minimal for my taste. But this night he was playing a really beautifully paced set , I loved it
Danny Howells, I am a big fan of Danny's and his dig deeper set here in Melbourne in January was possibly one of the best ever sets I've heard, I said at the time he seemed to be taking the music a lot more seriously . When he started here I just wasn't quite getting the groove I expect from him, in fact I was saying something like that to someone when all of a sudden it was like a switch was flicked and he was all there !! Was wonderful.!!
Btw Don't expect track names from me , I know the tracks , just can't remember the names
But if anyone owned the night it was Hernan!! I was told he was different in Argentina , and he is !! A bit rockstar , but that isn't such a bad thing.
The interaction between Hernan and his fellow Argentines was just incredible. So much pure raw energy !!
I always say I don't like breakdowns, but what I realised that night is that breakdowns have to be exquisitely timed so we maintain the groove, if we stop moving you have blown it guys
Hernan's breakdowns are all about that ebb and flow I talk about, although this time more like crashing waves
Just amazing !! For those saying there were tracks they wanted to hear which weren't there , I could say that as well, but what would we have wanted taken out to make room for them.??? There is always limited time and he didn't play a single track that I didn't want to hear!!
Were there technical problems when the b2b started?? it just wasn't totally smooth for a couple of tracks. After that it was such a joy to see and listen to two great Djs who obviously have high regard and respect for each other.
That last track just blew me away, I was so totally tired and it just lifted me off the floor . I think 99 % of the people stayed right until the end !!
Only negatives were the 1/2 hour wait to get my coat back and the hour for a cab!
I have been saying for years I wanted to go to a moonpark. For me this really was a dream come true. !!
So thank you Mariano, Danny and Hernan for making it such a wonderful night..
Was great to meet arielus , diegoap and hoff
The one thing that would make this whole experience better is that it was recorded and we get to live it again.
