I think this event has finally found its feet - thankfully.Partly because it opens a lot later than most other parties (and also, I suspect, that by 6am they want to shepherd all bodies into the main room), Resistance has never really entertained the dawn thing in Vista. I agree though, would be magical having them two go until sunrise.
Numbers wise, it was perfect for me. Busier enough for an atmosphere but not sardines like Coxy's birthday. And I thought Vista held its own. My frame of reference is limited though. Next week I'm interested to see how HS82 & EE fare against Hawtin, Capriati & Cox.
I think its fair to say they were a little apprehensive about last night. Arguably it was their date with the least pull factor, though personally it was musically right up my alley. In the end, they put the groundwork in on the promo front and it paid off. Plus the crowd stuck around. Was still good numbers on the dance floor when it shut.
Overall, busier than a few dates I attended last summer.
I say it often, but Digweed is SO much better without Sasha IMO.also sasha and digweed were a bit stale and rather slow, without any ups and downs for my taste. which resulted in some very boring 30-45 minutes when I found both floors lacking at the same time. became better with plex. I‘ll be returning for hawtin in september, I suggest you too
Their reunion played behind a sheer curtain actually worked out great for me !never seem them play together and the way that they go about their b2b seemed so weird. standing 2 meters apart, each staring into his own laptop, not once communicating. looked like one of those kraftwerk live shows
