opinion: absolutely brilliant!
amazing location, amazing music, amazing art-work, top people!
as Tribal said in their literature this party was a blueprint for future festivities, not just a look at the past.
The music wasn't just acid house, it was all sorts from '83 - '03, house nation style. Acid house, house, progressive house, breaks, d n' b, hip hop and live acts all over three different sections of the huge warehouse.
The 808 vibe was represented by Geralds' (half-hour) set which was very spiritual - pure MDMA, including ambient versions of 'Pacific' and 'Voodoo Ray', and a funky version of 'Cubik' was played in the breakbeat section of the warehouse.
From where I'm sitting it's definitely put warehouse parties back on the map, and has got a new generation interested - they were mainly younger people there who won't have experienced the first wave of warehouse parties. Some of the old-schoolers I saw (and there weren't that many imo) and talked to said that it was an amazing event and that Tribal had done a brilliant job.
I was never quite sure who the surprise special guest was but I was fairly mashed!
Well done to Tribal - I feel they have definitely done what they set out to by setting a blueprint for future festivities to build on! Nice one bruvvas and sisters!
