Back from Vegas and jetlagged! :P

Erm, any pub to meetup beforehand will be good with me - have we made a decision yet? Yup, Shoreditch is a good half-hour from Elephant & Castle by taxi (if the roads are clear)...

Can't think at the moment - still tired! :P

I didn't know there was a setlist, I thought it was all improvised.

Anyway a great spontaneous mash up, a little overlong (I just had to go for a pee).

...........and the biggest 808 convention yet.

Top stuff.

Especially love the "Swiss Dancer" reference - wonder who that could be referring to? :P

Whoa that was something else. :D If there's a setlist, is there any recording from the event? Since it was totally improvised (like Newbuild) a recording would almost be like an update to that album, which is pretty cool. My mum has been saying how much she enjoyed it!!

I was surprised how contemporary it was. It wasn't that far away in terms of how modern it sounded to some of the minimal techno sounds SMD was spinning, which says a lot about the importance of the acid stuff.
