Today’s vibe: Yeah happy seeing arts and music side by side!
Back from No Bounds Fest 3 day ting at Hope in Sheffield Lo Shea at the helm ...... day one with Mr Mills and Dj Stingray doing the following days.
My first time them sides but you know what,folk were super sweet and the vibe during the show was great,in an old warehouse art Space,bringing in there own system, which was cool but it should really have its own in-house system as the arts stuff that goes along side this Fest is productive......Liam ( heart and soul with a vision)running around had me thinking there must be at-least one sound company who can help him,
Sponsor a system whatever to free him up to push this project to full potential ?
Thanx All for giving me such a warm welcome and enjoying the air that row a subs was pushing,had a ball......!
Today’s vibe: Achey.... gave a lot in the Dam.
Was a strange day ,late flight,weather,visiting Zorgvlied (Lex)all rushed?
But the thing that struck me most was the loss of Amsterdam’s great Mayor Van Der Laan who was responsible for so much that is great there,so to play this day in a venue that wouldn’t exists without him was always gonna be interesting!
So I’m at “Shelter” sound-checking with William Djoko who I haven’t seen since I last played for him many years back in Trouw so much catching up to do which really was fun..... Tom T!
Cool set up but a weird one for a live show with a stack of subs only on one side?
William plays a very cool and different set which was refreshing to hear.
Showtime, decided to set up out front and be in it,rah you were close but infact all it did was make it so much more electric, which it really was,having that stack to my left meant at one point I drove it really hard to see what it would do lol why not?
We had a ball and was much needed,Thanx All who came out supporting ,it felt like the best uni party,a real fun vibes,also the whole crew at Shelter and William for having me come play.
A real G workout although all those phones out so close was tough lol!
Here a clip bit dark though ..... but it was supposted to be no cameras ?
Amsterdam thank you!
Today’s vibe: Listening back!
While diggin over the last weeks I found some ole Gemz, so put em in a pile and did this slow burner at the end a the day.
It’s really about just letting the great music breath and of course knowing me it’s going all over the shop.
Ohh sorry about the skip and all that, it’s wax it’s part a the story,I don’t know how to edit anyway lol.
what happened ... dug deep got my game face on and performed my ole heart out ..... in fact became the pied piper lol.
Folk paid there good money to check me so I couldn't just let them down.
But bouy it was tough.
The stage was built the wrong angle also only using half the stage? .... system was then twisted/turned to where it should be to balance the sound ...,all I had to do was to remember to look right and forget the monitors as they weren't a true reflection.
But we got there lol and more important I hung around to watch both Ellen and Blawan, who I've been dieing to meet,dangerous brother that lol.
So the clip is of him, keep on eye on the angle of the stage.
Thanx All who came and supported..... and the sun for
