It was a really good gig. I got heaps of love from everybody present. I feel like things are starting to turn around here. Melbourne is a hard scene to get noticed in, but now that doof season has started, I feel like I'm going to have more opportunities really soon.

I totally had butterflies in my stomache as I queued up Alienapia. Big:Red:Bus is often so tech-y and so prog-y, I really didn't know what to expect when I played goa trance. The result? People were FLYING on the dancefloor. So many smiles all around and people just power-stomping. It was awesome to see. Goa trance played on a loud system is just a wonderful thing.
Speaking of a loud system, this was my first chance to play on a Funktion-One rig, and oh man, I see why people are such fanatics. Funktion-One is a loudspeaker company from the UK that is almost worshipped by promoters and DJs in this country. I had never heard of it before, but I'm totally converted. Especially there is a part in Phibian - Lo-Phi that I've never heard sound so good before. yay.
Anyway, let me know what you think of my set.
