Last Friday night was a success. The mezzanine housed Belgium awesomeness, SOULWAX for the second time and it was a welcomed return.
JDH+DAVE P and FRISCO DISCO opened the show and people soon trickled downstairs onto the dancefloor. To really heat things up, they played some sure fire winners: Wolfmother – woman (mstrkrft), cajuan – dance not dance, and the obligatory daft punk toward the end of their set. By now the floor was warm and ready for some love.
Muscles came onto the set and made it rain ice cream. I honestly didn’t come expecting much from him but I was pleasantly surprised. His presence was sincere and the synth keyboard riffs were on point.
His set closed off with a thunder of applause and hollers, and seamlessly into the 2many DJs set. They played my favorite part of the night. I was really too busy going crazy for nitecalls to remember the tracks they mixed up, but it completely blew my mind.
2many DJs ended with the intro riff from KRACK joined with the drummer. I wish I had a set list, but when Soulwax came on, I was FREAKING OUT!!! They finished Krack and the rest was history.
I will let you in on a little secret. Towards the end of the set, they broke into the intro of JUSTICE’S “Let there be Light”. At that point I had shit myself and fainted. Hearing a live rendition of the already amazing b-side that puts the single “Waters of Nazareth” to shame is an unimaginable experience.
YOU HEAR THAT? I said it. Let there be Light > Waters of Nazareth. end of story.
Belgium is the new Australia? I say yes.
now for something you can hear:
not soulwax, not justice, not mstrkrft but:
Sondre Lerche – everyone’s rooting for you
i’m still alive, update to come.
also: I have set up a Jabber server on the TUFTSMANIA.COM domain, so if anyone needs to contact me, add chris/AT/tuftsmania.com to your google talk etc.

On my way home, I noticed that sebastiAn’s remix of Human After All was too legit to pass on. so I threw it into something with other songs. UUHHH YEAH.
and again, sorry for the obsession with Italy, Paris, Beetroots and Justice respectively. (and daft punk)
OH, exxxxclusive CAJUAN-BEETROOTS blend you saw it here first.
word up to PTNOTR for posting this video up.
I just watched it and there’s a particular scene that made me scream in joy. This video is so amazingly awesome. SO_ME is probably one of my favorite present day artists. My shit is definitely heavily influenced by his shit.
I guess JUSTICE has another win this year at the VMA’s.
of montreal, one of my favourite bands …i’ve been trying to ween myself off of the massive “blog-house” binges because honestly, unless someone’s going to step up and de-throne paris and italy, i’m not listening.
So Of Montreal’s sound is very unique, and considering they’re from Canada, it’s really saying something that I like them so much. just kidding to you canadians, jeez, take a joke?
of montreal, well……let’s just say, your magic is working.
