Know what you're saying mate but i don't really give a monkeys about seeing djs and the like nowadays, do venture into east & South every so often. I'm from NW London so head into the west end or Ealing & Acton if I want something a bit more local. Always have a much better laugh just doing the pubs to be honest, plus you got Kew & Chiswick just down the road. Depends what you're into I suppose though.

When are Warehouse project tickets getting released? Never been down for it before. Registered for the prerelease but would like an idea of when they would be available.

Cheers Duff, will check out Turntables tomorrow.

Gutted on that one, we went to Seth Troxlers thing on Saturday which turned into a mammoth bender so by the time yesterday morning comes around peoples enthusiasm was long gone. We usually have either me or a mate book up tickets and the other hotels but got a few other things this month so neither of us could justify it this time round. I know I will be gutted closer to the time but you will always be able to pick one up closer to the time for silly money anyway.

First visit on Saturday to Tobacco Dock, hands down the best big venue I have ever been to, it all just works. The crowd was rank but you need all them Essex wankers paying £40 to be able to rave in venues like that then so be it. I don't particularly rate Troxler but to give him credit he was on the bar and grill serving and happy to take photos for hours on end.

Not down in London till the end of Sept now for Omar S at Corsica, looking forward to it already. Anyone else doing anything good coming up?

Been recovering by catching up on my soundcloud feed. Like this new Four Tet

Drumcode gets a much better crowd in, techheads travel from all over Europe, lovely vibe. Deffo worth a full price ticket imo.

Got Mills/Hood etc. on the bank holiday ocer the road from Tobacco Dock and Dense & Pika closer to home, should be a good couple of weekends.

Gonna miss him yet again as off on holiday, seems to play every other month lately at least. The half hour I caught at Bloc he fucking smashed it, the hype is definitely justified.

Yeah Drumcode crowd looks excellent, we went to Bayer/D&P/Scuba/Fitzpatrick at the Albert Hall in Manchester and it was one of my favourite nights in ages.

Really can't wait for Omar S, got £5 early bird tickets! Got D'Julz on the 22nd too in Birmingham with should be good.

5 quid Jawdropping! haha sick

How'd you get on down here in the end? Thought it'd be a great idea to pull an all-nighter on the beach after Zabiela, straight to the stag afterwards, fucking hell what a mess trying to play footgolf drunk and speeding off my nut.

You manage the full day through?

We went go karting and then out on the Friday night, got turned away from a few places, went to Zabiela and stayed for about 2 hours then left as only 5 of us went in. Was messy enough after people started on the minibus at 12pm on the Friday. I got about 2 hours sleep but 6/7 powered all the way through. Had a hog roast delivered and other food on the Sat morning, started drinking red wine and dabbing mandy about 10am and no one left the house all Saturday/night Oops. Worked out for the best though as it had been a while since we all got together and had a big house session.

Few parking tickets, security round twice and lost the £500 deposit but it was a good weekend.

Yeah god knows how much gear I got through, managed half a Nandos all day, eventually all the pints caught up to me and apparently passed out on the stag's floor about 5am. Was worth it though, weather has been shite since and gotta pull at least one all nighter on the beach over the summer.

You probably didn't miss much on the Sat, Concorde 2 is a much better night out than the Arch. We just hung out on the beach, casino and shit mostly.
