Yup, this was a top night!
Met up with Andy & Darren at Amsterdam airport where we were picked up by trusty driver Ralf. "What, no stretch limo, no Hummer?". It's 90 minutes to Eindhoven. Iiiiziiiit? Then the drive to Eindhoven, with the DJs asking every 10 minutes if we were there yet and telling Ralf "Schuhmacher" to put his foot down. The location where the night was held was the Effenaar, which was recently completely redone, very impressive soundsystem. This was an opening night for Electronation there. Andy and Darren had already DJ-ed for Electronation last year at one of their parties in Amsterdam
808 were on between about 12:30 and 02:30 and took the usual 30 minute change-overs. Top classic oldskool tunes as ever, and Cubik & Pacific were played too. A few pix to follow.
I was praised for my 808 t-shirt a couple of times and one bloke who actually hailed from Manchester told me he used to listen to the 808 Radioshow on Sunset FM. I told him that he could listen to those shows again on the website, but not sure if he understood me (the soundsystem was loud). Can't really remember getting back to the hotel...
Full respect to Ralf the driver (he went through hell), the friendly Effenaar staff, and of course Roy from Electronation, who organised a perfect evening as usual.
Indeed hopefully we'll see 808 in Holland again before too long, maybe live?
