So what can I say, Life was on fire last night! I don’t think I have ever been down there when it has been that packed. The music was amazing, Souleance absolutely smashed it (you should really go and get their EP Le Monde), DJ Shuya Okino from Kyoto Jazz Massive played some banging tunes, and the mood in general was on top with people dancing and drinking and having a good time. Bumped into some people I haven’t seen for a while, like Simbad (who made a great mix for Brainfeeder a couple of weeks ago called The Supercosmic Revolution Vol.1 that you can download here if you haven’t already!), Dayo (!!!) and some other nice Brownswood peeps. And if that wasn’t enough, I now really want to get myself an MPC!

Flugeance (1/2 of Souleance) doing his little thing in the video above. I WANT ONE TOO!

So I needed a day and a half to recover from the massiveness that was Saturday night. A BIG THANK YOU TO Q-TIP + MY LOVELY BROWNSWOOD FAMILY (PEGGY & SIMON FANTASTIC JOB!). I was working the guest list in the beginning of the night. Got a lot of abuse hahaha. Kind of put me in a weird mood. But then I went in to watch Q-Tips performance and I was completely blown away. Have a look:

That gave me goosebumps over my entire body and left me a bit speechless. The entire place was buzzing from start to finish. Everywhere I looked I could see hands in the air, people singing along, dancing, nodding their heads… I can’t really describe it with words, but when he started doing “Award Tour” the crowd went fucking MENTAL! I was dancing like I’ve never danced before!

To get the feel of the atmosphere, have a look at the video Lefto made from the balcony. LOOK AT THE CROWD! MASSIVE! Lefto also got some nice footage from the after party which was crazy! Warehouse basement, 700 people, absolutely mental!

Very nice to see Emily again! Haven’t seen her since I left Brownswood and I have missed her so much! Bumped into Si from Futuristica who I also havent seen for a while and it made me so happy. Adam, the tour manager of Breakestra who I met this summer at World Wide Festival also made it, and it felt nice to speak a bit of Swedish. I can’t believe he is arranging a show with Benji B in Gothenburg! Bumped into some Brownswood regulars which was nice as well, they are always so sweet and make me smile. All in all, an AMAZING night. Something I will tell my grandchildren about!
