I had a blast playing an all vinyl set this month @ Torch! Definitely one of the most favorite sets I've had! I had some slips but some good mixes as well. It was really fun buying records for the month from Discogs and Juno. I tracked down a release of Skynet's Nvision recordings, had to buy 3 copies until I got the tune I wanted, lol! I also bagged Sigma's "El Presidente" on vinyl and I am glad to have it in my collection. My absolute "tune of the year" for 2015 is Dimension's "Whip Slap". I had to buy it on record and play it out for this.
James Trulyfe started us off and I was impressed with his set. I expected him to play a lot of dark dnb but found he had a very well rounded set of many different styles of Drum & Bass. Well mixed and a great open to the night! Big up sir! Destin Silk Wolf was up after me and he also played a well rounded set of DNB. We both played Pendulum's "Still Grey" and that really made the night special for me. Only at an all vinyl night will you here some of those classics, multiple times. I got to chat with Destin for a while after his set about DNB, the scene and it was a lot of fun! Greg Osiris was a man on a mission! I expected an old school set with some classics. He brought the freaking PAIN, double drops, quick mixing and hyped up tunes! Definitely my favorite Osiris set ever! Jimmie & Jason aka Enkognito x Kost closed us out for the night. They played it perfect with a great blend of old and new mellow DNB / Jungle tunes. I really, really, really enjoyed it and got to do some dancing with my good pal, Derek. It was his first Torch and he loved it!
This was our 3rd edition of the all vinyl, all night and I think it is one of the highlights of the year! Stay tune for next month, big tings agwan!
