Just a quick blog really to document what an amazing night we had on Saturday as the Vocal Booth Weekender teamed up with Beatplayers at East Village.
After a late flight in on Saturday and a fleeting visit to see the Tempo Twins, I rolled up to the door of East Village to see madness. I had tried to warn people of how crazy things would be for anyone arriving late and I wasn’t lying… at 11.30pm it was nigh on impossible to gain entry to the front doors and some people never made it in until almost 1.30am !
I didn’t get to experience much, if any, of the fun upstairs as I had to more or less get on the decks downstairs not long after arriving. Sy Sez did a cracking job in warming up the packed basement area and I came on and enjoyed playing for 90 minutes, sharing some mainly older vinyl nuggets alongside one or two dubbier new tracks. I definitely feel it is time for me to put a new mix together for my podcast followers, I unearthed some really fantastic old joints that need releasing on the world!
After I finished, Neil Pierce of course ripped the place apart and then Sy Sez came back on for the final 30 mins or so. A great night was had by all.
Thanks to all the VB Family that came down and shared more great times with us. I had a relatively early night and enjoyed a relaxing day in my hotel all day Sunday, before heading into Brick Lane for a pint and curry for one. Saddo.
