Zabiela was the shit once again. Maribou State not so much, like one of those pub DJs who's desperate to show off that they know how to use every single function in Serato in the space of 5 minutes, when Gorillaz came on at half 5 it was definitely time to fuck off.

Sad to hear of Plastic People close down, but it never was the same club once they changed the position of the DJ booth and you couldn't get a drink past 1 o'clock. I wonder if they will look at another venue where they won't get as much grief. I never quite understood why it had so much heat from the filth as it was always a decent crowd whenever I was in.

That's what I don't quite get, why were they on them? I heard rumours about the owner being dodgy.

Not been for ages, but the restaurant above used complain.

Police believe were on them about drug dealing and taking.

Vibe bar has gone also.

From Lil' Louis Facebook page posted today after his booking at Sankeys on Saturday.

'Dear Manchester.

I know you wondered what happened on Saturday. I’ll explain. I was really excited to play for you, thus, deeply disappointed that I didn’t. As usual, I landed then went to Soundcheck. As we were about to leave, this idiot came into the booth and without notice, decided to show off a new toy (a very powerful fog or horn machine), which seemed 12 inches from my left ear. As he shot it, the compressed air that blasted out was louder and more shrill than anything I’d ever heard. It hurt so bad, I jumped in the air and screamed. The pain was followed by an intense ringing and muffled silence. The left side of the room went dead, and I couldn’t hear anything except that ring. I was taken to the hospital, where I spent the night being passed around a bevy of doctors including an ENT specialist. I was diagnosed with SIHL (sound induced hearing loss), a permanent hearing loss, and given a strong steroid medication. I haven’t been able to easily walk straight (my equilibrium is off), so I can’t work out, hold down food, and I’m nauseous and lightheaded. I’ve gone from sleeping two hours a day to being in bed for two days.

I am fucking upset, because this idiot, (a manager no less) should have known better. And not only did he prevent me from playing for you, he may have ended my career as a DJ and Artist. I’m not looking for sympathy, but to prevent any new rumors from milling, instead of handling it privately as usual, this time I’m sharing the details.

Know that I live for three things, God, to finish this film, and create and play music for you. I’ve been able to handle everything life has thrown me. But I don’t know what will come of this. While writing this, I thought about the Serenity Prayer my mom gave me at 5. I understand why now. This is beyond my control, so I have to accept whatever comes. But I'm praying, because I’ve made the best album of my life, and want to give you that, the film, and the best DJing, which is still in front of me. In two hours, I have to take further tests. Wish me luck…

Musically yours,

Lil Louis.'

Was meant to be going to this as well… So fucked.

That Koze remix of Moderat and Dixon's mix of Dan Croll are in my bottom 5 of the year. Absolute dogshit and Dixon & Tale Of Us both played the two of them when I saw them at DC10 in the summer. Shitcunts.

Out of interest what don't you like about the Koze remix? Loved it the first time I heard it but was admittedly out my box, but I think the intro at least is very clever, vague tones of the original then the chopped up vocal comes out of the ether (at least it felt like that in the open air at 2am) and then THAT bassline.

We have definitely reached peak Bad Kingdom though, been over a year of various remixes getting rinsed now.

It's just the antithesis of the sort of techno I like. First of all I'm not a huge fan of the original and IMO the second Moderat album is pretty guff compared to the first, although the live show is still great. The sawtoothy synth noise in the Koze mix is unnattractive to my ears, and the vocal isn't suited to a club track let alone a total anthem that absolutely everyone plays. I really don't enjoy that brand of chuggy vocal techno that Dixon, Tale Of Us etc seem so partial to though, so it's just a case of that style not being my thing.

I'm really not that much of a techno fan but watching Dixon & Ame do a loooong set at some NYE party a few years ago was one of the most tedious, anti 'fun' nights I've ever had
