It’s a modern take on prog isn’t it? I don’t mind it, but I find the tunes tend to follow a tried and trusted pattern - plod, plod, plod, plod, break, breakdown, drop. But everything is very strung out, the drops are just a beat these days without any discernible musicality, and often electro or synth infused. I’d like to say epic, but the drops these days don’t do the word justice as they did in the olden days!
The tracks make me think oh wow, that was seriously impressive, but they don't make me want to dance. Every time techno strays too far from focussing on the groove it's a problem. There is hardly any percussion in them other than 16th note shakers. Even production-wise some of the tunes can now be a bit odd, the kick and sub aren't that prominent in the mix, it's all in the midrange for the synths and there's no dirt, it's all so clean. Impeccable production standards, but the kind of thing that would work on a super high-end system but fail miserably on some big speakers in a basement, which I guess is the point.

2 good posts there. I would add that what people on this forum strangely insist on calling 'melodic' is really just a modern take on prog. I loved it all 25-30 years ago Guerrilla, Stress + Digweed/Howells the more interesting stuff, but now it's just wallpaper. I guess it still works in big rooms where people are off their tits and just want big drops/chords all the time but it's not rushy for me in the way say Gat Decor was.

It isn't necessarily when there's a full moon, but they do often plan the parties to fall like that. I don't think it will be quite weekly, but it should be frequent. We'll know more soon

Some gossip, 528 will reopen mid-June and there's quite a few changes from last summer's launch. Although the high-end dinner and theatrical element remains, there's also going to be a very wallet-friendly option to experience it. Look forward to divulging more when it is ready

Nina Kraviz @amnesia last night. WOW

Hadn't seen her play before and will definitely be checking one of her sets out again.

It was great people dancing to hard mind melting techno.
What an absolute belter that was - couldn’t agree more , would love to hear everyone else’s thoughts on who they preferred from the evening . Lilly Palmer was fantastic, as well as dettman, best lineup I have been able to experience in some time .

Seems like the club room was the place to be last night and this morning. Everybody I've spoken to says as much, not just users here

I actually don’t know too much about the Tuesday Latin night at Pacha. @stivi might be able to answer your question.

maluma is one of the biggest reggaeton artists currently. he plays a number of shows at pacha and tuesdays at this venue will generally have that latin touch, some dates & artists are still TBA.

basically most of the big clubs here on the island have one weekly latin event per week this summer, similar as in 2018/19 when the whole reggaeton wave exploded here too.
