>Well I have to say, this was one of the
best parties I have ever been
>to. Kudos goes out to <STC> for
word. this was by far the best party i've
been to in vancouver, and one of the
best parties i've been to in general. it was more than a party -- it was an
Experience. the overall quality of this event and the Incredible Talent involved impressed me -- i will make a
point of attending shrumtribe events
in the future.
>The space looked great, they really did
an excellent job of transforming
black plastik walls, umbrellas hanging from the ceiling, those
pop-able packing bubbles on the walls, a headless
doll dangling... and i especially liked the red light (red being my favorite
color.) the place had an atmosphere... which i really
>The sound was the best! None of that
piercing high end
>crap. The bass would make the whole
building rumble at times!
incredible sound, i'm surprised windows
weren't blown out!!!! i was VERY grateful for the free! earplugs. this was my first time hearing dub gnostic spin
-- ever. few words come to mind other than
mind-blowing. it's not something that can really be described, but only
>Shaggy came next and filled >the place with the loveliest of music. He
played some of the best >samples I have
ever heard. I particularly liked the Speak and Spell. shaggy's set was a great example of successful
sampling... again, my first
time hearing him spin. the music was
hypnotic and very penetrating -- the
fast flashing of the strobe light added to
this effect. i'm dancing my ass
off at this point, near asthma attack, but
cannot pull myself away.

rip shit up. At first I was

out to me that he was going at
>it on 3 decks! It was wonderful to watch
as well as listen to!
and just as i was thinking that the night
couldn't possibly get any
tobias = wow. it was fascinating to watch him at work, with his clever
little flicks of the wrist (does he always
do that?) -- and on three decks!
there's something about minimal techno
that's very intellectual and mind
stimulating to me. yet at the same time, there also is a very
physical and raw emotional aspect to it. it makes me simultaneously think,
feel, and physically surrender to it. i'm not sure exactly what it is, but
i like it. perhaps i hit on it
earlier to day when i said that lack of matter points to matter because
they define each other. or perhaps it's
just getting really late. all-in-all, a
Quality event -- i *highly* recommend shrumtribe parties.

well, this was one of the best events i;ve
been to. the music was rad, the space was rad, the people
the decorating was rad and the ear plugs were appreciated:)
umm.. yeah. i was muchly impressed by it all
ohmygod! k, this is the best party i have ever been to.
let me count the ways...
- the sound was really good. lots of bass.
- the decorationing was phenomenal, i have
like it before. so much work was put into it, and i
dark n scary stuff. and it was so much fun to run
popping bubble wrap.
- the music was soooooooo good. god i
and three turnables!
- not too expensive.
- no smoking in the main room!!!
i could go on and on but i
WOW this Techno Event rocked, it was one of
parties I've been to! I have never scene a location so
decorated!!! The music was so moving, I could not
dancing till my energy ran out, so we left got me some
food, and went back it.(yes unlike a rave we where treated like people). All the DJ's were grate,
Shaggy was just so WOW! The crazy guys in the Bio sutes hahahha you
Lunatech your dress with the big *thing*
hanging was so sexy! Cause of the venue use it was not smoky
and it only was is $12 (presale).
plus on top of this there was so much room! even enough
for a bunch of people to lie down.
Instead, as the music started and the
evening began I found myself in a room lit only by red lights, dark walls draped
with obscure hangings, and inhabited by painted masks and a monster-like things
sitting atop a fantastic array of speakers. The music was amazing! And above
everything, it was loud--but not the peircing kind that hurts your ears. The
huge impact of the sound hit me when I took out my earplugs to listen to
Shaggy's set. After Lunatech's funky set and then Dave's drum'n'bass which
flowed onto the darker side and then created a mellow web of sound, Shaggy's
hard fast techno and the sudden killing of all the lights (except one on the
huge banner of Hal's eye behind the dj) was like running into a speeding train
at full impact. It blew me away. Suddenly I was dancing, and so was everyone
else, the heat rising like a sauna from the moving bodies. I got lost in the
trembling bass and fast moving rhythms only to resurface some time later with
Tobias playing on three decks! The concentration evident on his face as he
worked to keep the decks locked reminded me of this vision I have of a mad
scientist who has been working fervently on an experiment for days, and who is
going through the final crucial steps--one mistake, and everything will explode!
It was like basking in a polyrhythmic sea of music. Neb Eliven's set was
wonderful, and it is unfortunate he played only to the few people who were left
and the rest of us cleaning up. It was a great morning groove, and it brought
the party to a nice end. Surprisingly enough, by the time the last decoration
was pulled down, and the speakers loaded into the van, I didn't feel in the
least bit tired--except for my feet which will undoubtedly be nursing
blisters--and my stomach seemed to be doing fine...It was a good
