    made djs play worse sets or did i just see shit djs? or is all hard trance just crap?

    went to this 1**** & c******* party at the weekend and was pretty much hard trance allnight. But has moshin at parties just made djs play one tune for people to mosh to another one. there was no progression in the sets, no change or building the set up or anything just bam moshing tune, bam another moshing tune, like that for 10hrs! wump wump wump wump mosh… switch! wump wump wump wump mosh. etc etc etc.

    TBH I don’t think you can blame music genres or dancing styles for poor DJ’s. before zero tolerance there was plenty of different music being played at the EA parties I went to (it wasn’t all hard trance by any means). some of the mixing was sketchy but that was because many of the DJ’s could barely stand :laugh_at: yet alone mix.

    I think its simply more a case of most of the people providing the resources (rig, drugs, tunes) being increasingly the younger more stubborn crowd for whom even the music is becoming secondary to the thrill of being able to take over the field and have the party, and also being able to cane fuckloads of drugs?

    TBH for many people currently on the free party scene these days its a rite of passage, they do it for a few years from their teens to their their 20s and then knock it on the head when the drugs become too much, they lose the last of their kit/records to the feds, or they meet someone and start a family (or any combination of the three).

    its a bit different with established club DJ’s (a fair few who are older than me!) who are making cash off their work and/or have been into the music for as long as some people have been alive, have collected thousands of tunes and don’t have to be paranoid about ther tunes being taken by the cops and really put loads of effort into their set (as stuff like logisitics and promotions are done by others). Many of them don’t even touch drugs!

    I find much wider range in music these days

    About ten years ago (in London) it was generally 5 acid techno systems and 1 drum and bass system

    Now I’ll generally see techno, dnb, jungle, dubstep, gabba, breakcore, old skool, and some systems that play a combination of all of the above. Definitely more variety.

    However the parties I frequent probably differ significantly to psytrance parties which seem to be a different kettle of fish

    Being a DJ it is always amazing to see people dancing to your style, tune selection etc etc. The problem I have with parties is when hard trance comes on, there is only one dj from Illicit who I have seen who actually makes me go .. ”fuck me thats good” all the other shit makes me leave the room and funnily enough its about the same time everyone heads further in saying ”fucking tuunnneee!!”. Me personally, I think it must of been the DJs wanting to not go away from whats expected of them and the ‘moshers’ getting exactly what they wanted .. that same old ”wump wump wump wump”

    Funnily enough its that ‘getting away from what everyone else is’ that got me noticed and playing much larger gigs than a free party, even the jump from playing for free and getting paid. Don’t get me wrong, I never play for just money BUT its nice to walk away with your travel, couple’a beers and a couple’a bob for rent!
